2020 Holiday Photo Card Ideas during COVID

2020 Holiday Photo Card Ideas

It’s that time of year when we start planning holiday cards.  2020 hasn’t proven to be very photo-worthy between trips being canceled and so many special events being postponed.  If you are planning on sending a holiday photo card, we have a few ideas that may help inspire you design your own.

 

Since we all have to wear masks, why not make it part of your holiday card?  It’s a fun way to capture the feeling of the year as well as a great way to remember 2020.  Card shown:  Let It Snow Flat Holiday Photo Card.

 

From Zoom meetings to online classrooms, you can capture the year with snapshots of your everyday life.  Card shown: Zoom Call Flat Holiday Photo Card.

 

With everyone being told to stay at home, a beautiful photo outside in nature speaks volumes this year.  A simple, sweet picture has more meaning as we’ve slowed down to appreciate the quieter moments.  Card shown: Merry Everything Vertical Holiday Photo Card.

 

If this year really threw you for a loop (and honestly – that would include everyone!), have some fun with a silly picture that can find the humor this holiday season.  Card shown: Foil Happy Holidays Flat Photo Cards.

 

Speaking of humor, have a LOT of fun like our Tastemaker Trae Bodge did with her holiday card.  She kept the mood light and fun this year.  Card shown: Colorful Bordered Holiday Photo Card.

What kind of holiday card do you plan on doing this year?

Christmas shopping is well underway and usually the last thing to plan is what to put in someone’s stocking.  Of course you can always fill them with things like candy, fuzzy socks, gift cards, etc.  Why not surprise them with a personalized gift?  It’s thoughtful and unexpected.  And don’t worry … we won’t tell Santa!

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

We’ve put together a few of our favorite personalized gifts perfect for stocking stuffers.

For Mom

Personalized grocery lists are a great stocking stuffer for any Mom.  No matter what type of Mom you have, they will appreciate these handy lists to stay organized for grocery trips.

 

For Dad

Gift Dad his own personalized deck of cards perfect for game night.  We’d “bet” he’ll love them!

For Teens

A personalized Tervis water bottle makes a great gift for teens.  Perfect for sports and school.

For Tweens

Personalized emoji faces post-its are a fun gift for a tween.  Perfect for notes and homework.

For Babies

A beautiful, personalized snowman ornament is a great way to start babies keepsake collection.

For Someone Recently Married or New Homeowners

This stocking stuffer idea is perfect for new homeowners and also someone who’s recently married.  A personalized address stamper is such an unexpected and much appreciated gift.

For even more ideas, we have a boutique of stocking stuffers for everyone on Santa’s list!

Holiday Entertaining during COVID

Holiday Entertaining during COVID

Holiday get-togethers during COVID will be very different.  If you will be entertaining, that comes with the added responsibility of doing so responsibly. Keeping guests to a minimum, practicing social distancing, etc.  We’ve put together our favorite tips to help you entertain during this unprecedented time.

  • Serve appetizers in small cups so that everyone has their own and reduce the risk of spreading germs.  You can try crudite with ranch dip, shrimp in cocktail sauce, assorted nuts, etc.

  • Put hand sanitizer near doors and food stations.

  • Instead of a towel in the bathroom, use personalized disposable guest towels.  Pick a holiday themed design for fun!

  • Gift your guests holiday cookies or desserts to-go.  You can wrap them ahead of time and they’ll have something fun to eat when they get home or for the next day.  We love wrapping them with our personalized satin ribbon for a personal touch.
