Christmas Cards: It's The Thought That Counts, Not The Money You Spend

Whenever Christmas time rolls around, people begin to get stressed out. Sure, it's a happy time, but everyone knows that this is the time that you're supposed to buy gifts for everyone on your list. What if your list is long, however? What if there are so many people in your life, so many people to buy for, that you just can't fathom spending all that money. You don't want to leave anyone out, however, because you don't want their feelings to get hurt. So, what are you to do when you don't have a lot of money but you still want to get everyone on your list something for Christmas? Well, why not just give everyone on your list Christmas cards?

Make Your Own

If you really want the Christmas sentiment to show through in your Christmas cards, one great idea is to make your own. If you have a computer, a printing program and a good printer, you can personalize and print all the Christmas cards you need for each person on your list. Decorate your cards with photographs, such as one with your pet with a Santa hat on, or just a picture of you with your family. Not only does this look great on Christmas cards, but it gives the recipient something to hang up during the season for others to see. You can put anything you wish in the Christmas card, some people write a friendly note, some people like to put money, and some just like to sign their name. It doesn't matter what's in the Christmas cards you make because it came from you and it's the thought that counts, and that's what Christmas is all about.

You can also buy packs of Christmas cards. These are a very inexpensive way to get something for everyone on your list. These cards usually come with a design on them, such as a snowman or Santa Claus, or they may just have a Christmas tree on them, the point is that you can write whatever you wish inside to personalize it for each person and then you won't have to worry that you didn't get everyone on your list a gift.

Christmas cards make people feel good when they receive them. They are thoughtful, inexpensive and they're perfect for when you have too many people on your Christmas list, but not a lot of money to get each of them something. This year, give Christmas cards and show everyone on your list that you're thinking of them during this special holiday.
