Looking for new ways to commemorate special occasions in 2021? To help make your favorite holidays and occasions extra special, you’ll want to be creative with personalized holiday photo cards.
While these types of cards are popular around Christmas, you can certainly send these mementos for other holidays throughout the year, too. Plus, more than anything, when you send your friends and family one of these keepsakes, you’ll no doubt put a smile on their faces.
But which holidays are ideal for sending photo cards? Here are four celebrations throughout the year that are perfect for photo card correspondence.
Valentine’s Day is the holiday of love, and a photo card can be a sweet memento that your significant other can keep for years to come. For the ideal card, use a photo of the two of you together or a family shot with your children. Stick to a Valentine’s Day theme, with shades of red, silver, and pink, or include love heart embellishments. Then again, if you aren’t involved with anyone romantically, know that Valentine’s Day is no longer solely reserved for those in a relationship. Surprise a friend or family member with a platonic photo card to show them how much they mean to you.
Easter holiday cards can be either funny or sentimental. In that vein, mix up your photos and give your friends a laugh by using Easter-themed accessories. For example, you could wear bunny ears, or pose, ready for an Easter egg hunt. Alternatively, you may prefer a glam, classic Easter look, where you dress your family up in pastels with floral headpieces or opt for a black and white design.
Father’s Day and Mother’s Day
No one will appreciate a photo holiday card with you as the star of the show quite like your mom or dad! Father’s Day and Mother’s Day are the perfect opportunities for you to spoil your parents — and a photo card is a good starting point. What photos should you use? Consider a vintage design featuring a childhood photo of you and your parents. Or, if you have children, you can either include them in the photo or feature them exclusively.
Get spooky and quirky with a Halloween photo card. These work well for families with young children, as toddlers look adorable in mischievous animal suits, witch hats, and vampire capes. Style your photoshoots with oversized pumpkins and faux spider webs to add some Halloween flair to your holiday card. Don’t have kids? Then experiment with costumes and makeup, and use an Autumn-themed backdrop to create a unique, spooktacular Halloween card.
Christmas is the holiday most people associate with photo cards, and this is because it’s a season made for celebrating with family and friends. Choose your favorite design before taking a photo in the theme of your choice. Your Christmas card could be sophisticated, funny, cute, and/or heartfelt. Christmas photo cards are for everyone, regardless of your relationship status. You can pose as an individual, a couple, a family, or with your beloved pet.
A new year brings new opportunities and a list of resolutions. Why not send a photo card to wish those in your friendship circle your best wishes? Consider a design with the year written in a big, bold font and a photo of you and your family in the middle. Gold, silver, and bronze are all classic New Year’s colors, but you can think outside the box with florals, patterns, or bohemian artwork.
