Four

Christmas Countdown : 4 Days

Four calling cards. Yes, the song says they're birds but why not change it up a little? This time of year always makes us think of those far away and friends we haven't spoken to in far too long. So why not send a note to those you love? It doesn't have to be long or fancy, just a letter to show them you have them in mind this holiday season.

New Year's

This time of year it is sometimes easy to forget that not everyone celebrates the same holidays. But one day most of us are counting down to is New Year's Eve. If you're unsure what holiday or beliefs your boss, coworker, or family friend follow, go with a festive New Year's card instead. They will really appreciate the thought and you won't risk accidentally offending someone during this time of cheer and good will.

Christmas

Christmas cards comes in all shapes and sizes, but my favorites are always those that are a little quirky or different. I also tend to stay away from overly religious cards. The truth is, for many people celebrating, Christmas is a day to spend with those you love, eating good food, drinking cocktails, and exchanging gifts. So go for something fun, like these options.

Hanukkah

Yes Hanukkah started on the 16th but the benefit of having a holiday last for 8 whole days is that it's totally okay to send out a card a little late. I particularly love these cards for their simplicity and festive feel.

Paperless Post e-cards

Holiday shopping always adds up to more than you thought. Every year you set a budget and, if you're at all like me, every year you blow right past that limit. After all, you want to make sure you get the ones you love the perfect gifts, right? So if holiday cards have somehow been pushed to the bottom of the list, then this website may help. I've been using Paperless Post for years to send family and friends birthday and holiday cards at no cost. Another great feature? You can use Paperless Post to send out party invitations with a built in RSVP to help you keep track of the guest list! Plus, why waste another tree when you've already purchased enough wrapping paper to wrap your whole apartment.
