It's that time of year again. The stores are decorated, the Christmas trees are out. Lights shine bright by each home we pass and Starbucks has their Christmas coffee flavors.

Christmas is my favorite holiday and I always get more excited with each passing day. More so now that I have my son and he's loving all the lights and decorations in each store we go to. 

With a little over a month to go, now's the time I start looking at the different cards options .I honestly love sending cards out just as much as I love receiving them! One of my favorite things to do early is prepare my Christmas/holiday cards to send out to family, both near and far.  We did a quick shoot so all that's left to do is pick that perfect card for this year. 

I've been using Minted for some time now. I first fell in love with them when I was planning my wedding and picked my wedding invitations with them.  Last year's cards were also from them, so it's no surprise that I would go with them again this year. Thanks to them, I don't have to run around finding the perfect card, I can do it from my cozy bed. What I love is that they offer free recipient addressing so all you have to do when you get them is out a stamp on it and mail them!

Not everyone has the time or budget to have professional pictures taken. With Minted, you can still get beautiful cards that don't require any photos. From classic to modern, you'll definitely find something unique. 

If your obsessed with foil like I am, then you'll have to check out Minted's new Foil Pressed cards. Add some sparkle this holiday season, with options from gold, silver, or rose gold foil.

Whatever your choice is, just remember to have fun with it. Find a milestone photo you love and use it. It those very pictures that will make those getting the card smile. 

I'm always blown away with how many imaginative and fun the designs are and I can't wait to share with you what I chose this year!
