If I’m being honest, it’s really rare that I write people Christmas cards, or really anything for that matter.
I’ve become so reliant on communicating with people online, especially as it’s so easy and instant, writing to people seems a bit, well, out of date.
That said, nothing gets me more excited than a bit of unexpected post, and a card from someone is so rare it feels really special.
Therefore, I’ve decided to go old school this Christmas and write some cards to people I love.
These gorgeous cards are from Hello Geronimo* and I think the festive animal designs are seriously cute!
I like buying people beautiful cards, I’m not one for gimmicky or humorous ones unless it’s for my best friend, and these would look lovely sitting on a windowsill or fireplace.
I’m so not used to writing to people, I often struggle to get the words out when I do.
To be honest, all I really wanted to say with these was merry Christmas and I wish you well for the new year, so that’s exactly what I wrote.
We usually stay at home for Christmas, but this year we’ll be in Germany. That means we won’t be seeing a lot of the friends and family we normally do during Christmas, so sending everyone a card is a nice way for me to at least send them something.
It’s nice to let people know that even though you’re away, you’re thinking of them and I really enjoy surprising people with an unexpected card or gift.
When the majority of people in our social groups are so easily accessible, I think it’s important to make that little bit extra effort to do something nice for them.
A Christmas card might seem like a small thing, but it really does make the difference and I’m sure it will put a smile on the face of whoever receives it!
