Christmas Card Ideas

Checking the mailbox during the month of December is always a bit more exciting than other times of the year. Having a mailbox flooded with Christmas cards from our loved ones is much more fun than the usual bills we receive.

If you are looking to give a card that is a little different than a traditional one, we have a few ideas you may enjoy:

Photo Christmas Cards
Photo cards are becoming more and more popular. In fact, we may receive more photo cards than traditional cards each year! These Christmas Cards at Charity Greeting Cards are fun because people love to see your growing family. With so many online card retailers, the options are virtually endless.

Photo Magnets
These days you can print your photo on just about anything. If you are looking something similar to a photo card, with a little spin, consider sending an actual magnet. Virtually all of your photo retailers can print magnets and it will be something your loved ones can enjoy on their fridge all year long.

Post Cards
Did you know that you can even print your photo on a post card? We love sending these because they are a cute way to send your Christmas Cards and allow you to write a personalized note.

Plus, you can save money because post card stamps are cheaper than regular stamps! And, for your eco-friendly shoppers out there, you will use less paper by eliminating the need for an envelope.

If you have some time to get crafty, consider making your cards this year. Or, if you have children, they can make the cards! People will love the personalized feel of these cards and each one can have a special note written specifically for each person.

Ornament Cards
Make that photo Christmas card last forever by printing it on an ornament. Simply add a bit of yarn up top and your family and friends will enjoy your card on their tree year after year.

More and more families are starting to make Christmas card videos and send them to their friends and family digitally. This can be a really fun family activity that everyone will definitely enjoy watching. Although these videos will take a bit of time, they will be essentially free to send to your loved ones.

If you are looking for another way to send a free card, check-out the many sites offering e-cards. These Christmas cards will be send right to your loved one’s inbox.

Creating the Best Christmas Cards

Tips to Creating the Best Christmas Card

When you’re putting together your special Christmas card for your loved ones, you want to make it not just memorable for them, but for your family, as well. And chances are, you want that to be a fun memory and not one that the kids resent for years to come. So how can you come together to create the perfect Christmas card and keep the whole family happy? By working together to address these 4 key factors of the perfect Christmas card photo!


You could just grab the most recent family photo and add it to a pretty stock card with some cool font that says “Merry Christmas”. But if you want to go all in, you’re going to need a new picture. And that picture will need a theme. Whether you want to go with something more traditional, something more humorous, or even something a little strange, get the whole family’s opinion on it and see what great ideas you come up with!


Once the theme is decided, everything else kind of falls into place. But one thing you’ll want to make sure to address is the background. You may want to just opt for a simple “blank” background by tossing a blanket up behind you, or you may want to go all out with props, scenery, and other personal touches. Whatever you decide to do, let the kiddos help. They’ll think it’s fun and you’ll be creating great memories along the way.


Rather than opting to have everyone wear the same sweater that seems to be so popular for Charity Greeting Cards¬†let everyone express their individual style while having a common – you guessed it – theme. Make sure that everyone looks nice and put together and that they look like they belong together. Now you’re almost ready.


Personality doesn’t have to be everyone doing their own thing. But it can come through. Whether it’s allowing “bunny ears”, silly faces, or just beautiful smiles, let your wonderful, unique family shine through. After all, the people who will be receiving these Christmas cards already know and love you. They want to see a picture of the people they love – not a picture of the people they love staring flatly at a camera!

Christmas cards can be hard to come together for. But when you make it a family effort, making Christmas cards can be a great way to bond. Have your whole family sign the cards before you send them off to allow for an extra personal touch.
