Holiday Cards and Gifts @Shutterfly Plus $50 GC #Giveaway

Sunday, October 13, 2013 Posted by Dina N

It's hard to believe that October is halfway gone already. The December holiday season is mere couple of months away! It's time to start thinking about holiday cards and gifts. For me, that means photo holiday cards and at least several photo gifts for my family.

* Disclosure: Thanks to Shutterfly for providing information and a giveaway prize. I am compensated with a free product in exchange for participating in this campaign. Opinions are all mine.

I've started browsing the Shutterfly 2013 holiday card collection to see what's new this year. Usually, I find it hard to choose just one favorite photo for our holiday cards. Shutterfly makes it easy to personalize a pretty design with one, two, or six images. I love the Tiled Fun card with a festive red or green background and snowflake detail. The Preppy Snowflakes Christmas Card is another favorite. It offers a choice of two color combinations and three formats, plus I can decide whether I want it in portrait or landscape. If a miracle happens and I can select just one photo for our card, I'd go with the Magical Snowfall Christmas Card in white. Last minute change of heart about that single photo? No problem - this design lets me add photos and holiday wishes not just on the front but on the back and inside, too.

Shutterfly has added new card design styles for 2013. Check out the 5x7 folded tri fold and back of card designs. Here's the highlights for each card style:
  • Classic: Traditional colors, iconic illustrations, aspirational sentiments, snowflakes, monogram
  • Contemporary: trend forward colors, texture and layering, water color techniques, shine, glitter. Instagram pictures are perfect for this style
  • Whimsy: humor and nostalgia meet, fun sentiments
  • Merry and Bright: all about color and having fun
  • Religious: metallic type treatments, incorporated story ideas
  • Photo Basics: multiple colors, vertical type, family name highlights
Photo gifts have been my top choice for the grandparents ever since my kids were born. At home, we have quite the collection of ceramic photo mugs that make that morning coffee, tea, or hot chocolate taste ever better. This year, I really like the stylish Collage Squares mug in white or black. Add some yummy Ghirardelli chocolates, and voila, gift perfection. The Travel Collage Desktop Plaque is wonderful for showcasing a memorable trip or family vacation on your desk year-round. Shutterfly offers some great personalized photo gifts for the kids, too. I know my daughter would love the Littlelest Pet Shop poster for her room. The Tom Arma animal  posters are just adorable, and the cutest way to show off some pics of your baby.

Shutterfly and Resourceful Mom are having a Pinning Party (tm) next week. Tons of fun prizes will be up for grabs! You will find the party on Twitter at #PhotosYouLove with @Shutterfly and at Pinterest.com/Shutterfly. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 16, check out all the details and RSVP here.

    I've used shutterfly before and I love their products! My favorite one is "fun memories" just because I think it's a great idea to do a year-in-review for Christmas cards for family and friends you don't get to see as much.
