Personalized Christmas Cards

Updated on June 16, 2015

Personalized Holiday Cards

When wanting to express oneself personally to friends or loved ones during the Christmas season, I don't think there's anything better than a custom or personalized Christmas card, I'm not sure what it is, especially when you include children, grandchildren, pets or other members of the family in the personalized Christmas card photo.

Personalized holiday cards are so fun and great gifts to keep a part of the family history intact while having great times and events in the moment.

Christmas photo greetings cards are usually the best way to create and give away custom family Christmas cards, as they are the most memorable and appreciated. I say that because you can get caricatures of people made, and while a lot of fun, they aren't quite the same as the real thing. If you are thinking about caricatures of your family, it would be a good idea to include both, or maybe a separate gift of your children in photos.

Since Christmas cards are so personal, especially when it comes to family, personalized holiday cards with photos seem to do much better than illustrated caricatures, unless, as I mentioned, you include other photos with them.

One thing I do think we have to be careful of is sending photos of our pets to others, unless they really love the pets, as it can be tacky in the view of some people. They'd rather get personalized holiday cards of you if you have no children, than one of your pet. Obviously you know the situation better than anyone else. But I remember receiving personalized holiday cards from relatives which included their pet that I had no idea they even had, and it was weird to me. It's not a big deal, but just kind of strange.

Of course if you want to include a picture of yourself or family with your pets, that's a different story. I'm talking about just sending pictures of pets alone with no one else included in the photo.

Now if your extended or immediate family loves your particular pet and can relate to it, that's something different. But in general, people want to see people when they receive a personalized Christmas card.
