You could say that this year has been quite unusual, to say the least. With many of us having to keep apart from those that mean the most, it’s been a difficult time to feel connected to one another. That’s why we feel that Christmas is the perfect time to reconnect, check in and let your loved ones know that you’re there for them. We’ve put together some simple, yet thoughtful ways to put a smile on someone’s face this year with a personalised card. Whether they are near or far, send a personalised photo Christmas card in the post that is sure to brighten their day and get them into the festive spirit.
Here are our top tips and ideas to get you started.
For Someone Who Has Been There For You
Send a personalised card that says thanks this Christmas. In the world of social media and catching up over a simple text message, saying thank you can sometimes lose its heartfelt meaning. Do something different with a meaningful Christmas card that expresses how grateful you are for them and for everything they have done for you during this difficult year. Add a personal photo to the front with your Christmas wishes to send to all your closest friends and family, catering your message inside to each individual for a further personal touch.

To Let Someone Know You’re There For Them
As we haven’t been able to see those closest to us in person as much this year, it’s often hard to tell how they are really getting on. Send a unique custom photo card to your nearest and dearest that reminds them that you’re there for them, even if you don’t talk and see each other as often as you used to. Whether you have young children, a beloved family pet or fancy getting creative yourself, choose a festive-themed photo for your personalised Christmas cards that is sure to stand out on the mantelpiece. To allow for plenty of writing space, our Square Greeting Cards are the perfect option. Small gestures like this can really go a long way, especially during the festive season.
For the Grandparents
Whether they missed out on the first few months of their grandchild’s life or have been lonely during lockdown, a personalised Christmas card from the grandkids will really pull on the heartstrings! Customise your cards with a recent photo of the children and let the kids get creative with drawings and messages inside. We recommend our Panoramic Greeting Cards to give ample space for those festive drawings. You could even arrange a mini Christmas-themed photoshoot at home – the kids will love playing dress-up and it will certainly get them into the festive spirit! As your personalised cards will arrive in a pack of 10, fill your card with heart-warming handwritten messages and family updates to also send to your wider family and friends, creating a thoughtful and meaningful family Christmas card this year.
For Those Overseas
If you have family or friends that live abroad, why not send a personalised Christmas Photo Postcard in the mail? As we haven’t been travelling much this year, traditional postcards sent from your holiday destination have been somewhat sparse. Turn the tables and send personalised photo Christmas cards to your loved ones abroad with family updates and Christmas wishes. If you want more space to write your messages, you will be spoilt for choice with our wide range of personalised Greeting Cards for you to select from, ready to be customised by you. Choose any image you’d like, such as a stunning landscape shot from your staycation or a favourite family photo that complements your updates. Whether home or away, your recipients are sure to love it!
For the Best Friend
A Christmas card is the perfect excuse to reach out to your closest friends and check up on them. It’s been a tough year for most of us, so what better way to ask how they’re doing than through a customised Photo Greeting Card. Accompany your favourite winter-themed photo with a thoughtful personalised message that shows you’re thinking of them. When you’ve received your pack of 10 personalised cards, make it unique to each individual with little handwritten anecdotes of shared memories and wish them a fantastic Christmas inside – the best way to put a smile on their face.
Not Just For Christmas
A personalised card doesn’t have to be just for Christmas. From those that may not celebrate it, to those who just want to make someone’s day, send personalised Greeting Cards with your most cherished memories to those you love. Let them know you’ve missed them during this phase of distancing or to simply say ‘Hello!’. It will certainly make their day that little bit brighter.
Create Your Own Christmas Cards
We hope our tips and ideas have given you some inspiration to get creative with your own personalised Christmas cards this year! To make your creation as seamless as possible, create your photo Christmas cards quickly and easily online or by using our free downloadable Creator Software. There are plenty of festive templates for you to choose from, or you can opt to design your own greeting card from scratch – just simply upload your favourite photo, add text, Clipart and Highlights to make a Christmas card like no other (that you definitely won’t find in the shops!).
