Around here, we know Fall only just began, but the insanity that is the holiday season will soon be upon us. With it will come the constant and well-founded reminders to get back in touch with family and friends, updating them on our lives as we strive to keep in better touch with those we love.
But mailing out Christmas cards and ordering personalized gifts like calendars for grandma doesn’t happen like magic. It’s something you have to plan, and it’s better to plan before the hustle and bustle of gift buying and holiday parties comes on full force. That’s why we recommend starting now, and completing your projects with a company that’s going to make the whole thing feel effortless.
Mixbook is our top pick this holiday season as it allows you to create cards in as little as ten minutes or less with their Quick Card Editor. When you do this, you can pick from thousands of pre designed templates, plugging in your own pictures in a flash.

Rustic Year in Review
Before Facebook, Christmas cards used to be a way to keep family and friends in the loop of everything that had happened in the past year. Keep up that tradition with this design that provides a fun, yet detailed recap. Especially appropriate for those with kids or larger nuclear families.
Shine Bright for Hanukkah
We love this card that brings to light the meaning of the season and the celebration of Hanukkah. (Pun fully intended.) Just because they’re commonly called “Christmas cards” doesn’t mean there aren’t options for members of other religions outside of Christianity, too.
Hello 2017 Calendar
This happy calendar is a cheery way to bring in the New Year, and to continue celebrating that spirit of mirth all year long. With simple but fun designs, all you have to do is drag and drop your best pics into the allotted slots.
