Once upon a time, holiday cards were a universal bane of existence. Mailboxes were opened with dread to find the latest department store family photo, always, it seemed, featuring someone mid-sneeze. But who’s to say a holiday card can’t be as cute as the new Christmas sweater your nana just sent you? Only without the dangling sleeve ornaments.

With Minted you can show your seasonal spirit in style utilizing the web-based community’s thousands of independent designers. Every two weeks it holds design competitions, with the winners then sold on the site. You can choose from party decor, wedding invitations and of course holiday cards, with each independent designer earning a portion of every sale.

We slid down Minted’s chimney and found a few cards that really stuffed our stockings, like Chalk Holiday (above). Ever since those halcyon days of hop-scotch, chalk has been bringing joy to the world. Also, how adorable is that lettering (and that couple)?

Fleas Navidog

Why not let your pug mug for the camera? Your pup pop for a Polaroid? Your pooch smooch on the lens? We could do this all day so were moving on…

 Happy Everything

Wish a nondenominational joy to the world like in this season’s greeting from Carson Kressley, and the horse he rode in on. That horse, by the queer eye, is totally smizing.

Year in a Nutshell

Everyone loves a year-end retrospective, especially when there’s a graph involved — it just adds further legitimacy to the boasts and/or blatant lies you’re casually mentioning.
