Shutterfly Gift Card
Fall is upon us and you know what that means... the holidays are getting ready to 'round the corner! Unless you've been hibernating, you can't help but notice the holiday decorations, gifts and candy that have already taken over the stores (hello Home Depot and your Christmas tree forest that was set up in September). I thought it might be funny to give out Christmas candy on Halloween this year... but then again, we'd actually need Trick 'or Treaters to come to our house for anyone besides me to laugh.
Have you started prepping for the busy holiday season yet? Perhaps by gift buying, or list writing, or even food planning? When it comes to gifts, I tend to pick up things here and there throughout the year as I find unique items... and, as a knitter, I've always got gifts on my needles as well. That means my official "kick off" to the holiday season doesn't involve shopping for gifts, but instead it is picking out and ordering our holiday cards. I have been using Shutterfly for years now and absolutely love their huge selection, not to mention the amazing quality.
No matter what your style, you'll find a holiday card that suits you perfectly at Shutterfly. Is your style classic, with traditional colors, aspirational sentiments and iconic illustrations? Maybe you're more contemporary, using texture and layering, shine and glitter, and trendy colors? If humor and nostalgia come together at your house, one of the whimsy cards will fit in just perfectly. Want to showcase your religion with incorporated stories and metallic type? You'll find hundreds of cards, all waiting to be personalized with your photos, family member names and that personal touch that just screams "you." Check out the entire Shutterfly 2013 Holiday Card Collection here.
Shutterfly has even added some new things for 2013, including 5x7 tri-fold cards and back of card designs. The tri-fold cards look like so much fun...
But wait, there's more... Shutterfly is not just for cards! They have a wide selection of photo gifts too! You can personalize everything from mugs and cell phone cases to pillows and blankets to puzzles and desk organizes. There are even growth charts and wall art options, and of course, you can turn your photos into Christmas ornaments as well.
I can't wait to design our 2013 Christmas card! I've been working on my photo selection and have several Shutterfly card designs in mind. As you can see, I've scattered some of my favorites throughout this post. I'm still chuckling out loud over the "Definitely Naughty" headline just above... would make a very cute Lapdog card, wouldn't it? I adore the whimsy aspect of the "Spread Cheer" card. Those colors are very unexpected for a holiday card and with the photos used in the example, it has a fun 70's vibe. Of course, how could I not adore the "Woofing You a Perfect Holiday" card... However, I'm still in awe over those chic tri-fold cards as well. Decisions, decisions... just what will we be sending out in two short months?
