You count on us to bring you the most unique looks every year, looks that are designed to amaze your friends and family. New this year are many more foil designs and hanging cards, plus our new multi-choice Christmas cards that let you pick your own layout options in minutes.
Each holiday season, my family and I always get excited about having all of our friends and family over for celebrations of togetherness and giving thanks. There is always plenty of cleaning and organizing to be done to get the house ready before family arrives. However, this year I also wanted to update some of our family photo’s hanging on the wall.
We all start the holiday season with the best intentions to send Christmas cards, but let’s be real — life is busy! Single parents know this so well. Between work, the kids, household tasks, and everything else, the best-laid plans don’t always go as intended.
Pear Tree wants to help you make sending unique Christmas cards easy, fast, and affordable — yes, all three! Our award-winning design templates let you personalize your favorite card with the click of a few buttons.
We’ve always said that great photos make great Christmas cards, and this Featured Favorite is proof. We love the way the tropical colors and gold foil pop off the black chalkboard background. Our Minnesota team couldn’t help being drawn in by the warm-location photos and reached out to ask where these photos were taken.
What can you do with our fabulously tiny mini ornaments? That depends on how you personalize them. Only 1.25-inches in diameter, our mini ornaments come in sets of six, some with personalization options (like photos, colors and text) and some without. Here are three fun ways to use them.
Decorate a mini tree Create a theme with your own photos, or use our pre-personalized mini ornament designs. Perfect for an office, tabletop holiday display or centerpiece!
‘Tis the season to gather family photo ideas! After all, your Christmas cards won’t create themselves. To help, we’ve gathered the best family photo ideas that will make creating your Christmas cards quick and snappy (and extra merry) this year!
1. Holiday traditions Create a truly traditional card by capturing holiday moments your family does year after year. Like picking out the tree, decorating the tree or baking holiday cookies.
2. Make a Run for it Have the whole family make a run for it. You’ll be surprised how fun this photo idea is!
Talk about taking a theme and running with it! This family went all out to create a vintage theme for their Christmas cards, right down to where the family photo shoot took place. Says mom, Jennifer, “When we began thinking about ideas for a Christmas card in 2014, we really wanted to do something unique and very different than we had ever done before. We like our Christmas cards to tell a story, and so together as a family we try to think of fun ideas or themes. This year our 13-year-old daughter came up with the theme.
We love the choice of gold foil to accent the beautiful photos on this simple, two-sided Shining Bright Christmas card. This family was excited to introduce their new puppy, Pearl, to friends and family, and chose this card because it had “the perfect sparkle for a Christmas card.” But more than the card choice, we love what mom, Heather, says about the tradition of sending Christmas cards and the meaning they hold for her family.
