As you walk down the streets, you start to feel that something is different…
Okay, it’s cold… but that’s not it. The whole vibe has changed.
Instead of birds chirping… you start to hear bells ringing.
As you look up, you start to see different lights decorations on the lamps.
When you step into a mall, you start to notice that there are Christmas trees up and ready… and that is when the most wonderful scent in the world hits your nose… mulled wine.
And this is the exact moment when it hits your ears…
“All I want for Christmas iiiiiiiis… Youuuuu.”
Ahh, it’s like you have arrived home.
Because Christmas is just around the corner, and that means…
Say it with me!
“THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR IS HERE.”
Okay, maybe I’m a little too enthusiastic about this topic, but this thing is actually good for you.
Because it shows that I actually KNOW what I’m talking about when it comes to Christmas.
And especially… when it comes to making THE. BEST. CHRISTMAS. GIFT. EVER:
Make your own christmas cards!
Okay, now wrap your seatbelts, make yourself some hot cocoa, and put on your favorite Christmas song…
… because we’re going on a trip. A wonderful trip, if you will.
But before we can do that, I have to answer the most important question…
Why Making Your Own Christmas Cards is The BEST Gifts You Can Give?
Because they’re PERSONAL. And there are two reasons for that.
Firstly, you can customize them, so it doesn’t matter who is the lucky one you’re going to give it to… they will know you have ACTUALLY thought about them.
And second: They’re handmade. And you know what that means. You MADE THEM WITH YOUR OWN TWO HANDS*. You spent time with them. You spent energy with them.
*I actually googled the definition, and this was it. Yeah. What a surprise.**
**Okay, I actually didn’t google the definition but if I’d have to guess, I think I’m pretty close.
It’s not like you’ve just grabbed the cheapest mug in the shop. No way! And it shows.
They don’t cost much.
Guess what. You DON’T have to go broke over giving gifts to your loved ones…
AND… while they don’t cost much (read: almost nothing), they LOOK like they did. And this is thanks to the effort you put into them.
Which is worth waaaay more than money.
And, I mean, after all… Christmas is the celebration of LOVE. And with a customized, handmade Christmas Card, you give just that… A piece of love.
They look so awesome that whoever you gave them is going to not only LOVE IT… but put on their rooms and WATCH it every single day for eternity.
Maybe I got a liiiittle carried away, but you get it.
You can make these cards look so beautiful they won’t believe their eyes.
Well, let’s find out together:
How To Make The Most Beautiful Christmas Card They’ve Ever Seen?
