10 Holiday Cards For a Year When Everyone Needs Some Snail Mail

Fashion

Growing up, the holiday season only truly began when holiday cards began to pile up on the kitchen counter (we’re a last-minute tree trimming kind of family). Remember, this was a world without Instagram, and my siblings and I would rip open each envelope, studying how the faces of family friends and cousins had changed over the past year. Some families sent an annual update, some wrote personalized messages, some sent just a standard season greeting, but each trip to the mailbox felt like, well, Christmas morning. So, after a painful and difficult year, I’m advocating that we all make some time for sending some snail mail this holiday season. I gathered 10 adorable cards below, and I’d love to hear which stationery brands or shops I missed in the comments!
