Holiday Cards and Calendars for Your Blog (FedEx Office Giveaway)

Just as we bloggers need business cards to stay in touch with contacts, we need to think of a way to Thank people who have helped us throughout the year.

One way to thank your favorite PR contacts, favorite brand reps, or even fellow bloggers (think of the friends who have passed along great opportunities to you) is with a simple, but thoughtful holiday card.

FedEx Office makes it easy to order custom holiday cards and calendars!

FedEx Office has a huge selection of holiday card and calendar templates that for cards and calendars that would work to help you highlight the 'best of 2011' from your blog. Trust me, I know. I was given a gift card to use to order holiday cards or a calendars and have spent several days just browsing and trying to decide if I want to go with a calendar or cards!

I have finally decided on a custom photo calendar (I think) and there are tons of cool backgrounds to choose from. It's taken me so long that I'm writing this post before I've even placed my final order. Once you decide, the process is really, really easy and quick.

Photo Cards are not limited to one photo

What made the decision so hard is that the photo cards do not limit you to one, or even two photos. The design options are vast...

 

AND, the designs work whether it's one photo, or if you choose the collage layout.


Notice you can even choose horizontal, vertical, and you can choose the collage that works best for the photos you want to use. This option is great if you want to highlight all the cool things you did on your blog this year.

Another option I was considering was the mini desk calendars that have a unique photo for each month! A very cost effective and fun way to promote your blog or your business.

It's July and I've already started my Christmas shopping!

When do you start your holiday shopping?

Some of my friends think they are getting ahead by starting their shopping in September or October. But me? I start in the summer. I don't buy tons of stuff but I pick up things here and there that I just know my mother would love, or a teacher might appreciate. For the girls it's harder because they still like to make a list. I both love and hate the LIST. I love that they are still enjoying the holidays of their childhood. But I hate that making a list seems, well, spoiled. Even if they KNOW there's no way they are getting everything on that list.

What am I possibly shopping for in July?

Christmas cards! You see giving and receiving holiday cards are big for my family. Truth be told I took about 3 years off from sending cards and the number of received cards was noticably smaller (I'm going with the theory that most people rely on getting MY card to have my address). Why do we love getting Christmas cards?

Because every year we sort through the previous year's cards and use them to cut out gift tags! My mom did this with me and now my girls are enjoying it too. It can be a fun and creative way to reuse uniqe Christmas cards and it means I don't have to go out and buy tags for presents!

Here is a perfect example of a card that would be great to use for a gift tag:

You could cut out around the oval for one tag. You could cut out the MERRY CHRISTMAS and Happy New Year to make a rectangular gift tag. You could even cut out around the snowflake! What I love about this holiday tradition is that you DON'T have to be Martha Stewart to do it! You can be creative and feel crafty and not have your fingers hot-glued together. #winning

Where am I finding Christmas cards in July?

Glad you asked. Through my good friends at Global Influence I learned about Storkie.com and saw they have Christmas cards available right now! Can you imagine crossing THAT off your list already? I know - feels good, doesn't it? Take THAT frienzied December! I've got my cards ordered already!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post and I received compensation for helping to promote the sponsor. All opinions are my own and I really do cut out gift tags from old Christmas cards and of course the more interesting the card the better the tags!
