I'm all for the convenience of e-cards and personalized picstitches, but there's truly nothing like receiving a card in the mail, whether it's for your birthday, a thank you, or to celebrate something. This season, check out these holiday cards for fashion and beauty lovers that'll definitely separate you from the rest. Anyone can send a card with snowmen (though, that's still incredibly cute), but can anyone find the perfect chic card that can even double as decor when hung up? I say no.
I know I've reached "adulthood" (I put this in quotes because really, I still don't know what the hell I'm doing) when I spend more time Googling "chic holiday cards" than "holiday jello shots" (who am I kidding, I still searched that like last week). My family has had a tradition of sending a family photo to our family friends, but I wanted to get started on the tradition of sending something personal to those closest to me.
So in an effort to get my sh*t together (maybe like, learning how to file my taxes properly or set up my 401k rollover would be the better option, but that'll come eventually), I was on the hunt for the perfect set of cards. While I can't exactly afford to get everyone gifts, cards are a much cheaper alternative, and still lets people know you're thinking about them. At least I like to think so. Someone out there is probably calling me out for being a cheapo as I write this.
If you're looking to join the girl-on-a-budget team with me, check out some of my favorite fashion and beauty-related holiday cards to send out this year.
