I was watching a debate this morning on a breakfast show and how some people don’t send Christmas cards any more. Instead there’s a movement to “donate money to charity instead” or “buy a goat in some African village”. While I think these are perfectly acceptable for some people, personally I feel that nothing really beats a Christmas card. It tells you that someone is thinking of you and have a really personal touch. I love receiving Christmas cards and that includes cards that companies I’ve worked with send me.
I like these Business Holiday Cards for example. There’s a huge selection of cards which you can personalise or tailor with your choice of greetings, colours and even your logo or custom artwork. If I was running a business and needed some business Christmas cards, this would be just the sort of service I would be after. They’re also a great company to be supporting because they support the Texas Childrenâ€™s Pediatric Associates Project Medical Home by donating 4000 personalised cards to them.
Some people thing that receiving Christmas cards from companies can be a bit impersonal, but I like the fact that I’m remembered, especially when it’s a company where I have built up a great relationship with the staff who work there; good enough that they remember to send me a Christmas card. It’s amazing how little things can mean so much so many years later.
