Holiday Card Picks : Happy New Year Cards

I’m still trying to accept the fact that Christmas is less than a week away, but before we know it, the sparkly ball in Times Square will be droppin’, champagne corks will be poppin’, and the new year will be here. 2017. Twenty seventeen. The big 1-7.

Now, if you still find yourself sans Christmas cards, nevermind the greeting writing, addressing, and sending of said Christmas cards that you haven’t yet bought, you might want to look into sending Happy New Year cards. So many awesome stationery shops have added New Year cards to their collections in recent years, and there are plenty of great options that range from elegant to clever and funny.

So, if you missed the boat with Christmas cards, first of all, you’re not alone. And second of all, it’s no biggie because there are oodles of Happy New Year cards, including the shiny and bright bunch below, just waiting for the chance to end up in the mailboxes of your friends and family!
