I may be modern and minimalist in a lot of ways, but I'm also a traditionalist in a lot of ways as well, like Christmas cards for instance. They're something I just really enjoy, I love sending them as much as I love receiving them, as a kid I remember is was always so much fun to go to the mailbox every day during the holiday season and find a new card from family or friends. It seems it may be a dying tradition, but I'm doing my part to keep it alive, and I think more people should, it's just plain fun!

I've been using Shutterfly and Tiny Prints for our cards for years now, and they're our go to for all things photo gift related and especially holiday cards. You may remember I didn't have time to get Christmas cards out last year, probably because I was too busy having a baby haha, but I DID get New Year cards out, which was something new for us, and I kinda LOVED it. I decided to go with Christmas cards again this year, I mean you could argue that it's more of a multipurpose card, neutral, not significantly more Christmas than it was new year, but either way, whatever it is, I'm pretty much obsessed with the cards we chose this year. The design (found here) I chose is super simple, you know I'm all about simplicity and the minimal look, I used one of the photos from our beach sunset family session we had with my beautiful (and vert talented) friend Autumn from Autumn Trinity Photography when we were in vacation in South Carolina (side note: if you ever get a chance to visit Huntington beach state park in south Carolina, do it, it's one of the most beautiful places on earth) and it was the most perfect photo to grace the front of our cards. I couldn't just pick one photo though, so I added 5 more to the back. I was able to customize every last inch of our cards which is why we love the Shutterfly and Tiny Prints experience so much, they know everyone has different tastes and styles and let you choose just what you like! They also offer custom postage stamps as well and I highly recommend them to tie in the entire look, it's always one of my favorite added touches to make our holiday cards even more unique.

I also grabbed a few photo gifts for my mom, in-laws, sisters, brother and sister-in-law, Shutterfly just made my gift shopping a breeze and all it took was choosing some fun products from their website and adding a photo or two to add! Their mugs are super high quality and are always one of my favorite go-to gifts over at Shutterfly. I also found this adorable customized tea towel that's a new product this year and it immediately went into my cart, my mom collects tea towels so this will be the perfect gift for her! Have you created holiday cards yet this year? head on over and make some, you may even want to grab some gifts for the fam while you're at it, and don't forget to take advantage of the discount codes and rad sales they always have going on!
