Holiday Card Roundup {$100 Minted Credit Giveaway}

We are officially one month away from Christmas! We haven’t yet replaced our pumpkins and turkeys for pine cones and garland but we have picked out our holiday card! One of my favorite holiday traditions is sending out {and receiving} Christmas cards in the mail. Each year I get more and more excited as the cards pour into our mailbox. I absolutely love watching all of the exciting changes in my friends and family’s lives each year – from engagement pictures to babies, nothing makes me happier than receiving a happy moment captured in the lives of those closest to us! 

This year we decided to go with Minted for our holiday card. We’ve used Minted many times for all sorts of paper needs and have always been impressed. In my opinion, Minted truly offers the best designs, lots of customizable options, high quality paper, recipient addressing options {usually free during promotions}, awesome customer service and the super convenient “find it fast” feature which allows you to insert your photo into all of the cards at once for easy shopping.

Here are some of my favorite designs this year, one of which I already have chosen for our Christmas card…


 A Wonderful Life

All Together Now

Be Merry Script

Best Year Ever


Wishing You Joy

Watercolor Merry and Bright

Christmas Love

A Merry Little Christmas

    My favorite Christmas tradition is putting up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving; no earlier, no later. My husband and I listen to Christmas music and decorate the house for Christmas. Incredibly magical!!

  24. Katie Rodela
    November 25, 2014 / 2:50 pm

    Every year I give my husband a new Christmas ornament that commemorates something that happened that year (first year – engaged, second year – married, third year – puppy). I also always make him a photo desk calendar for work.

  25. Urban Wife
    November 25, 2014 / 3:11 pm

    Our favorite Christmas tradition is getting a real tree and putting it up/decorating it, the day right after Thanksgiving. We pop in 'Elf' and sip on hot cocoa as we decorate. It's pretty magical.

  56. Rachel from Rose Tinted Home
    November 25, 2014 / 7:03 pm

    I have a few I'll admit – but there is something about sending out Christmas cards that I love. Writing each one to the families you love and miss. I usually write my cards with a mug of hot chocolate, curled up in front of the TV watching a Christmas special. Elf is one of my favorites but hands down our family Christmas movie is White Christmas. Happy holidays!xo Rachel

    I love our Christmas Eve dinner with family friends. It's so neat to think our parents started this tradition when we were in elementary school and now all of the 'kids' are grown and married with children of our own, but we all make it back for the Christmas Eve dinner.

    I love the nonchalant and the all together designs! I'm still deciding what picture to use for our Christmas card. I think my favorite tradition, is just spending time with family, in our pajamas drinking hot chocolate without having to worry about going to work or any thing else besides the people that I'm spending that time with.
