'Tis the season — to send a little holiday cheer. Yep, that's right: ol' snail-mail style. Come each winter, this editor (a notorious stationery hoarder) searches high and low in pursuit of the perfect missive to ship off to her friends and loved ones. And, it's no easy feat when surrounded with oodles of festive options. From nutcrackers and half-eaten gingerbread men to peppermint candies and cats in Santa hats, the following selection of cards makes it tough to choose just one.
The good news? You don't have to! Since these boxed collections and note cards won't set our wallets back too much, you can pick up a couple of options to suit every person on your list. For those relatives who don their ugly Christmas sweaters every year (and not in an ironic way), go for something of the red-and-green variety. Or, for a general season's greeting and "Happy New Year" wish, we've got plenty of quirky, nontraditional stationeries that'll add some spice to your warm wishes. Whatever you choose, you can bet you'll be sending the best cards of the bunch!
