Holiday Christmas Card Inspiration

Each year around this time, I start to receive Christmas cards from friends and family.

If I’m on top of my game, I use this season to schedule our annual family photoshoot, and if I’m REALLY good those¬†photos make it onto a card that I mail out to my own mailing list.

Since we’re friends, I’ll be honest with you and let you know that for the past two years I have missed the “Christmas” deadline and mailed out “Happy New Year” cards instead.

This year, I’m hoping I get my act together in time to make that same deadline. ūüôā

For now, I’ll share with you a¬†few of the most creative holiday card ideas I’ve seen online.

Ok. I’m sorry, but every time I see this picture I laugh!

Who among us can’t relate to this moment? We all know that capturing that perfect photo is a lot more work than those Christmas cards show.

Kudos to this family for keeping it real! Love their sense of humor!

Star of Wonder!

Gap uses to these picture-perfect models to replicate the shape a star. Super cute idea, but somehow I doubt it could easily be pulled off by a real family!

Santa Baby!

Babies + Christmas decor = WIN!

Yes, receiving those annual holiday cards is heartwarming, but what do you do with all of those cards as they continue to arrive at your house?!?!

Here are a few creative ideas for how to display all those cards so you can enjoy them during AND after the holiday season!
