For the most part, I view sending out holiday cards as just another time-sucking requirement of the season. Maybe you're like me, and by the time you've posted a veritable ton of traditional updates and thanks to your family members and professional contacts, you're too tired to send more than a barebones "Merry Xmas" text to everyone else. But i'm pretty sure I've found the perfect way to get myself pumped up to send some season's greetings to all of the important people in my life this year, and I think you, fellow bookish person, will agree: the literary holiday card.
All of the cards below have some sort of theme connected to books, writing or something else decidedly literary in style, so they're not only perfect for all of your book-loving pals, they'll be a beautiful addition to pretty much anyone's mantle. You can choose between individual cards, so you have the freedom to mix and match the idea cards for everyone on your list, and box sets that allow you to get the most bang for your buck. There are also Christmas cards scattered among those with more general winter or holiday themes, for a collection that is as diverse as the people you love.
