I have a secret to share – we don’t do Christmas cards. Christmas cards were a big thing when we were first married (the best advice I was given was to use our wedding photos for our first Christmas card – since they were such a big investment!), but once Theo was born, it became one more thing I had to remember to do in the long list of other momlife and holiday things. And then Olive was born last November, I was suffering through a horrible case of mastitis, and we just gave up on cards all together. But the year before, we discovered the brilliant idea of sending personalized New Year cards. A very dear friend sent us one and I loved how forward looking it was as well as retrospective. Add the fact that sending personalized New Year cards gave me a few extra weeks to send our cards out – YES PLEASE. So as everyone is scrambling to send out their Holiday cards, I’m here to tell you that you have another option that will give you a little more time and is just as retrospective and meaningful – Happy New Year Cards! Here are a few of the best personalized New Year cards for families – see them all and personalize yours today.

  8. I love the idea of a New Years card!! I’m not much of a Christmas card giver (though I love receiving other families’), but we are having our first kiddo in April, so I have the feeling I will want to send out cards with her cute little face on them 🙂

  11. I have designed a card before. I loved doing it, but it was hard. I think it is like creating a pin. So fun!

  14. I love idea of sending New Year Cards. It does take the pressure off of sending Christmas cards because things can get busy around Christmas. We will try this next year.

    These personalized photo Christmas cards are so cute! I have not done Christmas cards either in the last few years. But I might think about doing photo cards next year, it seems most of the cards we get are family picture post cards and they are nice..

  22. Yep great! But instead of putting our photos in it, I would have someone else and give it to them as a Christmas gift.
