Holiday cards are great for many occasions and the perfect thing to gift this Christmas. Thoughtful, heart-warming, homemade Christmas cards are the sweetest (and the cheapest) Christmas gift!

Memories/Family
These are my favorite kinds of cards because it shows you went the extra mile to make the card personal. Including a family picture or a picture of your favorite memory with the person you are giving it to gives him or her a sense nostalgia. Even the happy memories included in your card is enough to make someone tear up because of the thought you put into it.

Thank You!
Thank you cards are perfect for any occasion because they can be short and sweet or long and thoughtful.

Happy Holidays!
Happy Holidays cards are a great gift for young and old. Kids may not understand how thoughtful cards are because of their young age, but include a silly picture of a snowman, and you won’t believe how much they love it.
