I absolutely love writing cards, especially at Christmas. It’s the perfect time to stop for a moment, reflect on the year and thank loved ones for being a part of the journey. Just the simple act of putting pen to paper and sending love to friends and family can make such a difference to their day and to my own.
I’ve put together some tips below to help inspire you to plan ahead to ensure you enjoy the special act of handwriting Christmas cards and share the Christmas joy with loved ones this year.

1. Make a list of all Christmas card recipients
This is the first thing I always do. I love to use my Christmas Organiser and make a list of all the people I’d like to send Christmas cards to. Then it’s as simple as writing, sealing, sending and ticking off!
2. Buy or make your Christmas Cards early
I like to choose my Christmas cards in October and early November so that I don’t miss out on my favourite kikki.K designs and I can get started writing in advance.
Don’t forget to buy your stamps now too! Avoid long lines at the post office in December and purchase your stamps ahead of time. That way you have everything you need to just seal, stamp and pop them into a post box.
3. Set some time aside each week now
The holiday season is always a busy time of year. Rather than waiting until December to start your Christmas Cards, set a little time aside each week to start now. Tick off five cards (or more!) a week, then, when December 1st arrives simply post them off to friends and family and tick that task off your Christmas To Do List.
I believe there’s nothing quite like receiving a handwritten letter, so make time for this beautiful activity and get started today.
