Holiday Gift Guide: Pear Tree Greetings Giveaway 12/10


I am not a historian, but legend has it that Christmas Cards originated in England sometime in the 1840's.  A Sir Henry Cole wanted to spread the word about his favorite charity so he asked an artist to paint a depiction of the poor being given food and clothing. Someone added the words "A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year to You" and the greeting card company was a boom the next day!  Okay, maybe not the next day, but the tradition definitely caught on, and it has expanded into a Holiday Tradition for most of us!


Up until a couple of years ago, I would go to the trouble of getting everyone dressed up in matching colors, go spend way too much money on family portraits, and then purchase expensive Christmas cards to send them off to all of our relatives and friends for Christmas.  No more!


Thanks to companies like Pear Tree Greetings, I can now order some pretty great Christmas cards from the comfort of my computer using the pictures I have taken of the kids through out the year.  It's really a win:win situation because I am only buying one product and saving a lot of time and money. I don't have to cut out pictures, write information on the back of the picture, endorse the card, and fill out the envelope.  Now, I can order the cards and just fill out the envelope or for a little bit more, I can order the envelopes already filled out for me!



Now this is what I call a Merry Christmas!  This mom of four has precious little time to waste and Pear Tree Greetings is helping make my life easier!  All I had to do was upload my favorite picture or pictures (if a card boasting multiple pictures is chosen), and the hardest part of the process was deciding which beautiful card to choose!

I had some really good pictures of my niece, and as you can see from the picture, her Holiday cards turned out just gorgeous.  They have selections such as Ornament cards, Clothesline style cards, Magnet cards and more!



The Pear Tree Greetings website has so many options to choose from, and I got some really good picture ideas from Pinterest.  Also, don't forget to check them out on Facebook or Twitter for the latest and greatest promotions!



One of my lucky readers is going to win a $25 giftcard good towards the purchase of anything on the website.  Just enter one or more options on the Rafflecopter!
