Boxed Christmas cards will save you time this season
For some, the holidays are a time of merriment, family, and peace. These are usually the folks who had the foresight to prepare for Christmas well ahead of time. Perhaps they’d made their gift buying list sometime in the fall when the weather started getting brisk; maybe they took the bull by the horns on Black Friday and braved the long lines and angry customers to get the majority of their gifts; no doubt they’ve already taken photos for their annual family Christmas cards. All in all, these jolly souls have naught to do this December save for reclining by the fireplace sipping on hot chocolate with marshmallows. Then there’s everybody else.
For everybody else – that is, those that failed to prepare for the holiday in advance – this time of the year can be quite taxing. Malls are more crowded than ever, the best gadgets and sold out, and there just isn’t any time to gather the family together for a Yuletide photo to send off to extended family and friends. A quick and easy way to give yourself a little more time for the more time-consuming tasks – navigating crowds of anxious shoppers and picking out gifts that will result in eyes that radiate rather than roll – is to purchase boxed Christmas cards rather than coordinating with the family for a Christmas photo.
It might be difficult for some to break the tradition of taking holiday photos every year for Christmas cards, but it shouldn’t. Before social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram became so popular, the annual photo was the perfect way to show your friends and family that you were in good health. However, they can easily see that anytime now by logging in online. With technology making it so easy to check in on your loved ones, you can rest easier knowing feelings won’t be hurt and curiosities are satisfied. Instead, buy yourself some time by purchasing a set of boxed Christmas cards.
You can use all the extra time you’ve saved up to write something more than just, “Happy holidays, hope you’re doing great!” Personalized Christmas cards have much more value than a humorous or elegant card, and your recipients will know this when they take the time to read your winter greeting and message. People spent countless hours searching for the perfect holiday card for a huge variety of friends and acquaintances including: parents, grandparents, children, cousins, childhood friends, significant others, coworkers, and bosses. The list really goes on and on. To have to find cards on top of the already difficult task of finding the perfect gift is a daunting task, and one that you do not need to endeavor in.
If you are one of the many who is stuck in a bind when it comes to time this holiday season, opt for boxed holiday cards. It truly is the thought that counts and your sentiments don’t carry any less weight because you didn’t specifically pick out every card.
