It’s the most wonderful time of the year – family and friends spreading holiday cheer with their family portrait or warm greetings. Amidst the silly photos and customized drawings, we picked a few of our favorite holiday cards from Minted.com that already have us thinking – hmm, what will next year’s look like? We broke down what we love of about each of our faves – check them out below!
FAMILY VS. JUST KIDS
Traditional family shots are beautiful, but sometimes mom (and dad) just doesn’t want to get in front of the camera, and that’s a-ok.
Sometimes it’s just impossible to get everyone to sit still. Candid shots give a glimpse into the realness of everyday life, so why not own it? #totesadorable
Featuring the kids AND the whole family makes for a super cute card.
A unique pose can really make an impact! (Plus, that dog has a future in modeling!)
JUST THE KIDS
A candid black & white with a hint of the holidays is the perfect season’s greeting!
Classic poses are adorable – especially when you think about the kids recreating them in 10 years!
Candids with pets are always adorable. Hands-down.
HOLIDAY VS. NON-HOLIDAY
Red, green, gold, silver… The trademark colors of the season. But what about sandy pink? Here are some families that went with a non-holiday photo theme but added a little season’s greeting. We love the way they used those family photos from the beach this past summer 😉
OR if the holidays are your favorite time of year, we found a few families that went all out. We love both looks.
DECK THE HALLS: NON-HOLIDAY PHOTOS
A favorite prop or two including some non-traditional colors set the scene for a very natural and beautiful holiday greeting. Simply lovely!
Mix it up with nontraditional colors AND poses – this card stood out among the rest!
The cute photo from summer vacation paired with a seasonal message made for a natural, beautiful look!
DECK THE HALLS: HOLIDAY PHOTOS
There’s something about scarves and hats that makes you feel (and look) oh-so-cozy. Also, how cute are these kiddos?!
This card captures the excitement and joy that defines the holiday season – a perfect shot of the whole family!
It’s official: Holiday gear is definitely cutest on babies and pets…together.
PHOTOS VS. NO PHOTOS
Who knew that you can send out a card that is just as customized and creative without the photos?! Check out some of our favorites below!
NIX THE PHOTO: A CHILD’S CREATION
The perfect way to go photo-less but still customize the card is to show off a child’s artistic abilities. Asking your little one to draw their favorite holiday scene gives your friends and family no choice but to showcase it on their fridge!
NIX THE PHOTO: DESIGNED MESSAGE
Holiday greetings, with style. Plus, the added sparkle with Minted’s new Foil Pressed cards makes it shine brighter than the rest!
SERIOUS VS. FUNNY
O’er the fields we go, laughing all the way! A funny line or photo is a great way to keep the holidays filled with laughter and smiles.
We loved the play on traditional holiday lyrics! It’s the perfect way to spice up the classic holiday card greetings.
A few halos + a witty line = laughs for every lucky recipient of this year’s holiday card!
Grab the fun photos, add a funny line and perfect-o, this was a memorable season’s greeting!
