When you experience a momentous occasion around the holidays, it's natural to want to share the news with everyone you care about. Sending a traditional holiday card as well as a separate announcement can be cumbersome and time-consuming, so why not combine your special announcement with a themed holiday card and minimize your work?

Here are nine creative and unique that we absolutely adore (and we think you will, too!)

Christmas Birth Announcements

Imagine the joy on the faces of your friends and family as they open your Christmas card to reveal a birth announcement! By ordering your cards online, you can easily customize them with a cute photograph of your family's newest addition.

Christmas birth announcements are the perfect way to bring an extra dose of holiday cheer to all the people on your Christmas card list while giving them an up-close look at your family's newest member.

Christmas Moving Announcement Cards

If you have recently moved, there is no better way to make the announcement than to include it in your Christmas cards. Take this opportunity to share your new address with friends and family members while wishing them happy holidays.

Make your card even more fun by adding a photograph of your new home, or the general area where it is located.

Christmas Wedding or Save the Date Announcements

There is something magical about getting engaged or married during the holidays. Share a touch of that magic with your friends and family by sending them Christmas wedding cards or save the date announcements this holiday season.

If you were married within the past year, celebrate the occasion by sending Christmas cards featuring a lovely wedding day photograph of you and your spouse. If you have recently become engaged, include a save the date announcement in your Christmas cards so that recipients can mark the special day in their calendars before you even send out your official wedding announcements.
