Christmas Card Shopping Myth #2: Perfect Family Required

If you’re like me, you’ve skipped sending Christmas cards more than once because you didn’t have a decent family photo to use. But these days, there are plenty of photo ideas for Christmas cards that work just as well, if not better than, the family portrait. Many cards now have room for several photos, which takes the pressure off finding one perfect photo and gives you an opportunity to get creative.

  • You can pick one great photo of each member of your family, close-up or candid. Some cards even have space to write about each photo, so you can say a little about what each person has been up to.Photo Christmas Cards -- Stocking Stuffers
  • You can show a series of photos from the a vacation to highlight some of your family adventures, or from a wedding or graduation where you all were gathered.

Bubbling with JoyThe Lont Family is way ahead of the game. Their Christmas cards are already printed and ready to address, and it’s only October 1st! Says Amber, chief card picker-outer, “I really love all the Pear Tree Greetings’ Christmas card ideas – there are SO many wonderful options to choose from!”

Amber says she chose the Bubbling with Joy Christmas cards “because of the fun layout and graphics and the ability to change the artwork colors to coordinate with the photos.
