They say you should never compare your behind the scenes to someone else's highlight reel. And if Instagram is the highlight reel, Christmas cards are the Academy Award winning film. The go-to look is perfection meets overachievement and to be honest, you and I both know that's not true.
2021 wasn't exactly the return to "normal" we had hoped for. In fact, the past couple years have been some of the hardest for pretty much everyone. So why fake it when it comes to the photo Holiday cards? Embrace the mess! The misses! The meh-ness! Not only is it refreshing, it's also just real. And that's worth celebrating.
So instead of looking like you jumped out of a catalog, why not go with a holiday card that says it like it really is? We've rounded up some of our favorite Christmas photo cards that are as stylish as they are honest. And we know you don't need another thing on your to-do list, but each of the brands we've included make it as easy as possible to create something that's beautiful and uniquely yours. And one of them can even be, wait for it, mailed for you. Now if that's not something worth celebrating, I don't know what is.
