Rifle Paper Co. Nutcracker Holiday Cards
This year is the first year that Brian and I are sending out Christmas cards. While we’re only sending them to a few friends and family, it feels like a significant step in our adulthood. It’s funny that I waited until I was married to do this—after all, it’s not some rite of passage that we can only do once a ring is on our finger. Christmas cards are simply a greeting, a “thinking of you” note, a tip of the hat to those you love, wishing them well in the holiday season.
So, for those of you our there (married, single, or whatever) who find yourselves ready to send some holiday love to those you hold dear, here are some ideas for how to do so…
This is where we got our Christmas cards this year, and I’ve been pleased with the whole experience. They have a huge selection of cards—each with different size and photo options—and they even address and mail your cards for you if you upload your contact list (you just pay for the envelope and the stamp). Even better news? Today is the last day to enjoy 20% off any holiday order or 25% off any order of $149+ with the code 25dec. See their cards here >>

In a word, these cards are adorable. A great option for those of you who want to send a card but don’t want to include a photo (or maybe are single and don’t want to send a selfie pic to all of your friends and family). They have a HUGE variety of card designs on their site, and also some super fun wrapping goodies. Here are some cute ones I found through Anthropologie:
For those of you who want to be green this Christmas (or those who just don’t want to pay for postage), Paperless Post offers high-quality e-cards at a low cost. If you want to get away with paying absolutely zero for your holiday greeting, simply use the “public card” feature to share it on social media or sent specific people a direct link to your greeting. Change your mind last-minute and want to send paper cards? Many of the cards can be printed and physically mailed if you wish!
Will you send out Christmas cards this year?
