As much as I love Christmas, one thing I’ve always gone back and forth on was our Christmas card. Since it’s just me and my husband, nothing really changes in the pictures from year to year, and we don’t really take many posed photos together. Since we never have a picture of us for a Christmas card, who were we going to feature?
Well, one year I decided to take pictures of our dog, Millie. I wasn’t sure if it would be well-received or not, but people loved them! It became our little tradition. Every year, I found it so fun to put Christmas decorations around her (closely watching her, of course), and take probably 100 pictures, praying that she didn’t move since there was a large treat above the camera lens for her to stare at and drool over (which usually resulted in the perfect puppy smile).
This was last year’s picture. I mean seriously…how adorable is that?
So, this year, when I was looking for Christmas cards, I was hoping to find a card with a more pet-centric message. Usually I’d buy something that said “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” from (our last name) and leave it at that. However, this year, I discovered these holiday cards from Minted.com, and included in that are some cards that are specifically meant for pet photos!
I can’t even deal with how cute these are! I especially love the “naughty list removal application”. 🙂 I think our family and friends would get a kick out of these in their mailbox! Minted also has quite a few more pet holiday cards in their collection, but those 4 were amongst my favorites. There’s also a great selection for those of you who are looking for cards to feature you and/or your little ones.
I love that you have color options when it comes to choosing your holiday card, as well as design shape options. Another great thing is that you can buy your holiday cards from Minted in increments of 10 (vs. 25, which I’ve seen on other sites). 🙂
