Ho ho ho! Time to get out your stockings, dust off those fairy lights, and make sure Santa knows you’ve been good this year. While the promise of snow seems far in the distance for many of us, the promise of holiday shopping and gift giving has definitely arrived. We know custom and photo holiday cards aren’t for everyone, so we wanted to make sure we rounded up some gorgeous 2016 holiday cards that help share the spirit of the Christmas season either long distance or in person. We’ve taken the liberty of collecting some of our favorites below! –Shauna
1. Loving this claymation-inspired Santa and Rudolph from Clap Clap Design
2. A more traditional sentiment from Chic + Nawdie featuring classic Christmas icons
3. Those hardworking elves over at Rifle Paper Co. know a thing or two about making cute holiday cards. This one is even die cut in the shape of a snow globe!
5. The Nutcracker ballet remains a childhood favorite, so why not share this Pei Design with someone who shares a love of nostalgia?
6. All I want for Christmas is to sleep in, but I suppose diamonds don’t hurt either (according to 417 Press)
7. Power and Light uses a simple message paired with a candy cane stripe for a modern twist on a classic design
8. It’s a card! It’s an ornament! Get more bang for your buck (or pound) with this cleaver Katie Leamon holiday card
9. If you are as obsessed with Stranger Things as I am, you’ll love this creepy Christmas message from Lionheart Prints
