From My Ohana To Yours: A Unique Holiday Card

Mele Kalikimaka.

So this year, I am sending you a unique holiday card. Handwritten by us. Thoughtfully. Because I figured, everyone’s beguiled with the materialistic side of Christmas that people have forgotten the true essence of it. My mama for one is too busy whipping up holiday recipes in the kitchen, she didn’t even know I am writing this post for her. Oh boy, I do look cute in these holiday hards, I can’t even begin to tell you how bloody ecstatic I was when my hooman showed me these cards! My gramma will be thrilled! 

love, Winkles

Winkles! How adorable is my english cocker spaniel baby? she makes everyone weak with her over the top cuteness. She’s touched our lives and those who know her in more ways than one. Her friendly demeanor and human-like character (and ways) melt my heart! And because she triggers the same reaction to other people, we thought of reviving the good old days of sending customized and handwritten holiday cards. (read: how to take your own photos like a pro)

To realize our vision, I ordered these unique and elegant holiday cards from Basic Invite. Let me tell you, their design and color choices are unlimited so express your creativity whichever way you want! You can even request for sample prints especially if you are looking to print by the hundreds. Did I mention that they have at least 500 Christmas and Holiday card designs? Gosh, I had fun choosing and creating ours, it took me more than an hour to finalize and check out because I kept changing the colors, haha! But the whole process was a breeze and dummy-proof, even if you don’t have the eye for details.

Unique Holiday Card for Christmas

My unique holiday cards came in about a week so beat the holiday rush and order now. Basic Invite is currently offering 30% off your purchase with code holi30 so better grab this deal before it’s too late! Depending on the style, type of paper, and quantity, each card only costs about $2.99. Practical yet thoughtful, let’s bring back the true joy of Christmas. After all, it’s the meaning behind, as Winkles put it.

Have you thought about customizing your holiday gift this year? what’s on your master plan? what about some holiday treats like these no-bake naughty nutty balls?

    I will never get sick of physical cards. They mean more to me than the gift!

    How cute! I love that they have so many designs to choose from! We’re moving right before Christmas so I’m not sure cards or much of anything is going to happen this year unfortunately.
