It is hard to believe it, but Christmas is already around the corner.
Starbucks red cups are out and department stores have decked the halls. This can only mean one thing… it’s time to think about Christmas cards.
If the mention of Christmas cards causes you to break out in a cold sweat, don’t worry. I have a few terrific tips that will make your Christmas cards gorgeous. Send out cards like these and everyone will be impressed.
3 Ways to Make Your Christmas Cards Unforgettable
Want the best cards ever this year? Here’s how to get them:
Pick One Theme Instead of Using Everything Related to The Holidays
When sending “Season’s Greetings”, more is not always better. With a Christmas tree in the background, a sticker of a snowman in the corner, and a tagline that reads “Merry wishes from out little elves,” you run the danger of over-doing the holiday spirit.
For a classier and cleaner version, pick one theme. Or even just one color scheme. This is a great way to make it look like you’ve put a lot of thought into your cards without too much extra effort.
Make Your Friends and Family Laugh By Sending a Funny Photo
If you are a lighthearted family, why not show off your festive humor? There’s no need to stick to the classic photographs if they don’t represent your family. Plus your kids will be more interested in the photo shoot if they get to have fun. Here are a few funny Christmas card ideas I love:
You could turn Christmas-cookie baking time into a hilarious food fight. Or go over-the-top with ugly sweaters, matching outfits, and exaggerated enthusiasm. Another idea is to find a candid photograph from your childhood and have your family reenact the scene, then send the two photos together for extra laughs.
Steal Ideas From Your Favorite Christmas Stories
Is reading ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas or watching A Christmas Story a family tradition? Use these (or any other) Christmas traditions to make your cards unique. One idea is to take inspiration from your favorite story, pick a well-known scene from that story, and reconstruct it with your family.
Imagine finding a small twig that looks like the tree in A Charlie Brown Christmas. Your family could dress like the characters and stand around the famous tree. The photograph will be clever and festive all at once. You can do this with any book, movie, or story that means something to your family.
