As a life-long stationery lover, it's no surprise that I love writing cards at Christmas. there's something so special about reconnecting via pen and paper that will never be replaced by sending an email or a text. It's the simple delight of sitting down to pause and reflect on our feelings and then spreading this joy through the words that means so much. of course, over the festive season, it always seems like there is so much else to do. Which is why I wanted to share a few tips and starters to inspire you to send more cards this Christmas!
1. Start early
I really believe that early organisation is better organisation! Take the worry out of card writing by getting all of the tools you need as soon as possible. Pick out a couple of card packs, a good writing pen (there's nothing worse than a pen that stops working halfway through writing a card!) and stamps so you're good to go. don't forget to gather updated addresses for your loved ones too!
2. Write in batches
Writing your cards should be a meaningful and enjoyable experience and that will not happen if you're rushing through them. Set aside a few evenings and leave yourself enough time to express yourself thoughtfully (with your best hand-writing)!
3. Get personal
Your friends and family will love reading a really personal message when they open their card. Share favourite memories from the past year, express your gratitude for the wonderful things they've done and make a plan to meet up again soon!
4. Make it special
Why not make your Christmas cards even more fun by adding cute touches that reflect your style? perhaps you'd like to include a family photo, draw something or simply seal the envelope with a cute sticker. Little details have the most wonderful way of spreading festive cheer over the Christmas period!
We hope these easy tips inspire you to get started with your Christmas cards!
