Family Photo Christmas Cards

Even in this day when emailing is so prevalent, my parents still receive numerous Christmas cards every year. And my mom still hangs them on the walls. It's always fun to go around and look at all the cards, to see who sent them, and to choose the prettiest or funniest or most meaningful ones.

But some of the ones I've always enjoyed the most are the Photo Post Cards. It's fun to watch a family change throughout the years. Kids grow up, hairstyles change, people get older. They represent family history in pictures.

I have a friend from college that sends one out every year along with a newsletter telling of her family's activities throughout the year. Since we live in different parts of the country, I've never met her husband or her children. But I feel almost as if I know them because I've watched the kids grow up over the years and read the letters telling about their activities and interests.

Photo Post Cards are a great tradition to begin when just starting your lives together as a family (or at any point in time!) and then to continue throughout the years. Those are Christmas "cards" that people actually keep instead of throwing away or recyling.

With 30 border designs to choose from, why not consider sending
Photo Post Cards this year ... even if it's just you and your dog or cat.

Hi Aunt Libby,

I am a writer and I research gift ideas for e-books on original gift ideas for Christmas and other events like Valentine's, Easter etc. I also organize gift ideas per receiver, like for babies, for kids, for teens, for grandparents, for dog lovers, for him, for her, etc Or I organize them by category like romantic gifts and inexpensive gifts. In my research I also go through blogs that mention gifts and gift ideas or events like Christmas. That is how I came upon your blog Family Photo Christmas Cards. I would appreciate if you would share just one successful gift idea with me, for instance a Christmas gift for a man. I hope that my question doesn't annoy you. And I apologize if it does. I thought if I'd just ask enough people I'd wind up with plenty of good ideas to share with others again. That is what networking is all about, right? Or let's call it the spirit of Christmas. Let me know if I can do something for you. You can find my free e-books with gift ideas here: God bless.
