I send out Christmas cards to people who live out of town and who send them back to me. I hand out cards in person to my friends in town. I like to put cards in my scrapbook. I send out e-cards to people I know over the internet. I have been known to give both real cards and e-cards to family members.
One of my friends turned me on to a company called 'Send Out Cards' which allows you to upload your own picture, create a greeting and message. They then print the card put it in an envelope, place the proper postage on it then send it to the receiver. I use it for business relations mostly but this year I also used it to send to many of my friends and family members. It's unique and creative, like me Give it a try for free http://www.CardSomeoneFree.com
That site is great! Zazzle is pretty easy-to-use too and they are pretty cheap. I love sending and making Christmas cards and enjoy receiving them too (especially handmade ones or ones with photos of family and friends).
