super cute Christmas cards

I don't know about you, but I this time of year I always look forward to receiving everyone's Christmas cards.  And I like them even better if they include a photo!  Yes, I know it's beyond difficult sometimes to get that perfect family photo for your card, but some of my favorite have been the ones where all the kids are crying and the parents look exhausted.  That's real, right? And I'm pretty sure we can all capture that shot!  ;)

Anyways, one of my new favorite sites to get cards at is Shutterfly.  They have soooo many holiday designs to choose from.  I mean, seriously.  When I clicked on this link to check them out, the number at the top said "1-40 of 803."  Woah.  So, I did some digging and found one that is sure to be a favorite:

What I like about a card like this is that even after the holidays are over, you can just cut off the bottom and use it to display all year round!  It would look really good in a frame too!

Looking for a great gift for your parents or in-laws?  My mother-in-law actually requested a photo calendar this year.
I made one of these for her last year and it was obviously a hit.  I think the best part is that you can personalize the lower half too and even put pictures on certain days, which is great for those birthday reminders!  
Mother-in-law gift - check!

They also have tons of great photo gifts, which I have found to be the perfect solution for those people you just don't know what to buy for.
I love this photo mug filled with Ghirardelli chocolates.  Place a picture of your sweeties on there for a grandparent, or a fun picture of friends hanging out and give it to one of your friends.

One of the things I love most about Shutterfly is that if you're printing off pictures, you can pick them up at Target!  And since I'm there at least twice a week, that works perfectly for me!  :) 

Plus, orders that are $30 or more ship for free!  Just use promo code SHIP30 when checking out.

So, what are you waiting for?  Head on over to Shutterfly and get your shopping done!


You know what's really cool?  I'm getting 50 free Christmas photo cards just for blogging about this!  You can too!  Bloggers can get 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly:
