Creative Ideas for This Year's Photo Christmas Cards

There are many familiar traditions associated with the holiday season, and one of the greatest of all is the exchange of holiday greeting cards. Everyone loves to send and receive these personal cards, especially special ones featuring family photographs.

Despite the inherent fun surrounding this timeless exchange, however, sometimes it's fun to mix things up. Add some real pizzazz to your family's annual photo Christmas cards this year with some of these creative ideas we compiled for you!

Photobooth Christmas Card

Why use just one family photo when you can use several? Pictures from photobooths are always cute and trendy, and will make for a fabulously creative holiday greeting! For an added creative bonus, include your strip of photobooth pictures in a goodie box of other treats like they did over at Simply Radiant.

DIY Photo Booklet

Compile some of your most precious family memories into an easy-to-make photo booklet like the one pictured here! It's a very time and cost-effective craft, and will definitely make your Christmas card stand out from all the rest.

Ho! Ho! Ho! Photo Card

Frame your favorite photos with festive holiday-themed words -- We suggest Santa's trademark saying like The Shopping Mama did here!

Naughty and Nice Chalkboards

If there are two kids in the family, have a little humorous fun like we did by having one hold up a mini chalkboard that says "Nice" and the other that says "Naughty." Of course, in reality we know they'll both be on Santa's Nice List!

Glittery Photo Christmas Card

Keep things simple while still adding that extra touch by just sprinkling glitter on your family's holiday greeting cards! This idea comes from Martha Stewart, and is sure to be unique and still classy.
