Fact: The holidays are approaching faster than Santa's sleigh. And, while we love a killer holiday fete, our true favorite part is sending and receiving festive greeting cards. Whether you're in the camp that sends 'em out without fail, or a newbie to the handwritten note, 'tis the time to gather all of the addresses of your loved ones, get your pen ready, stamps licked (or the stickies, whatever you're into), and above all — find that perfect set of cards.
Don't have everyone's zip code handy? It's easy as holiday pie. Just slyly drop the "hey-umm-what's-your-address?" question via text or email — et voilà — they'll get a snail-mail treat in a few days flat. Who doesn't love that? Quite simply, it's a super-thoughtful way to spread cheer and show that you're so above an e-card. Plus, if it's a true winner, the paper will stay on the recipient's fridge even after the tree's been trashed. That's why we've rounded up our favorite traditional, not-so-traditional, non-denominational, and slightly cheeky cards. They're sure to wow your nearest and dearest this month and maybe even next! Just be sure you put them in the post on time. Now, do tell, which is your favorite?
