Time to Start Thinking About Holiday Cards

Shutterfly is giving bloggers 50 free cards simply for posting about this wonderful opportunity!

I don’t know about you, but 50 free cards is HUGE. It seems as though we add new people to our card list every year…and cards can get expensive!

I was browsing through their selection and the picture tree is the one that stood out for me. I like that you can put a whole bunch of different pictures in it! (Perfect for when your kids are at that age where they won’t sit still together.)

Now, I’m not sure if that’s the one I’ll use…but it is certainly super cute!

The decision I go through every year is that we have some non-Christian friends who get the cards as well. Typically, I end up with a “Happy Holidays!” message, but I’m wondering if people care if it says “Merry Christmas” instead. I mean, I’d still love to get a card even if it says “Happy Hanukkah” on it…it still means they remembered me and want me to share in their joy. (right?)

In year’s past, I’ve also put together calendars for family member Christmas gifts. I love that you can just select a picture (or a picture montage) and they’ll take care of the rest. Great quality too. I know my family really got a kick out of it – especially my step-grandmother who doesn’t get to see the kids very often.

So now that I know where I’ll be purchasing my holiday cards, I just need to snap some photos!

  1. We used to love Shutterfly and the thought of 50 free cards is cool. But, we’ve been using Send Out Cards for a year now and are actually MAKING money by sending cards through them and helping others send cards through them (and making money themselves).

    Send Out Cards is fully customizable and allows you to use as many pictures as you want, send out personalized cards in your own handwriting and with your own signature right from your computer and you can send gifts this way, too!

    I’m happy to give you and your readers a couple of free Send Out Cards to send out as an early holiday gift to you all.

    Just go to http://www.sendoutcards.com/gradea to send out a card or two on me.

    Happy Holidays!!!


  2. For a few years, I did the “politically correct” thing and got cards that said “Happy Holidays.” But, truthfully, it lacked meaning for me. I now get “Merry Christmas” cards and handwrite a personal message for my non-Christian friends wishing them the best for the holidays and the New Year.

    I *always* use Shutterfly for my cards–I’ll have to get in on this! Thanks for the tip!
