Are you one of those people who didn’t send Christmas cards this year? Not because you didn’t want to, but because you just ran out of time? Don’t despair. You’re not alone. And it’s not too late. A greeting is welcome any time and is one of our favorite New Year’s ideas, aside from champagne, of course!

After all, an unexpected card is one of our favorite kinds of greetings. Some of our friends like to have the honor of sending the last card we receive, and even joke about it in their card, saying “We’ve saved the best for last!” or “Better late than never.” Other friends prefer to be the first greeting of the New Year and intentionally send their New Year’s cards right after Christmas. We have good friends who, for more than 15 years, have sent their card at the end of January. “We’re late, we know, and we are thinking of you” is the message, and it is always a joy to receive.

So if you want your card to stand out, why not take the pressure off and think about sending your holiday greeting sometime after the holidays. After all, what else is there to do in January?

Look for more New Year’s ideas on our blog, or just get busy and order those New Year’s cards right now! It’s not too late.


As the copywriter for Pear Tree, Cathy sympathizes with those who are intimidated by the blank space inside a 3 x 5" thank you card. Married to an active husband, and Mom to three teenage boys, she finds herself out-numbered and out-voted on pretty much everything, never gets the remote, and is used to receiving blank stares when talking about girl stuff. This blog is both her outlet and her payback.
