11 Best Christmas Cards We’d Keep Forever PLUS Important Posting Dates

Gone are the days of Christmas cards that simply displayed a robin perched on a snowy fence. Now, cards are a wonderful expression of personality and when you bother to send one, you put so much thought into them that when you receive one, you want to keep it forever.

Cards have made a major comeback, do NOT send us an email version of a card because that’s just not the same thing. There’s nothing quite like opening an envelope with a stamp on it, knowing it’s been through the postal system. It’s kind of quaint and it’s special and it requires effort. If you get a handwritten card, it’s because somebody was really thinking about you.

Here’s 11 we can’t wait to send this year.

This one will just make a great Christmas decoration time and time again, you could even frame it and stow it away as part of your winter decor. We love Dusty Boy Designs; they’re Irish!

This one gets our vote because it’s a charity card for the Irish Cancer Society. If you’re going to spend big on cards, how nice to know it’s going to a good cause.
