As the holiday season approaches, the air is filled with excitement! Among the cherished traditions that define the season, sending and receiving Christmas cards remains a heartfelt gesture that brings families closer together.

For grandparents, this tradition takes on a special significance as it provides an opportunity to share their grandchildren. From smiling faces to cherished memories, creating a Christmas card that’s designed just for grandparents is the sweetest way to embrace your favorite titles to date – grandma and grandpa!

Create a Christmas Card with Photos of Your Grandkids

You already know your grandkids’ cute-factor is as off the charts as your love for them. Including photos of them on your Christmas card for grandparents is the easiest decision of the season! The only hard part is choosing which kind of card to create. Here are a few of our favorite ideas…

Share All the Best Moments Through the Year

Grandparents often reside far away from their grandchildren, making regular visits challenging, but that doesn’t mean you can’t share their growth through the year. And if you’re lucky enough to live close to your grandkids, your camera roll is sure to be packed full of photos!

To create a card with lots of photos of your grandkids, simply gather all of your favorites and choose a year in review Christmas card that lets you add lots of photos.
