Personalized Ways to Welcome Holiday Houseguests

As you play host to family and friends this holiday season, make them feel right at home with décor and gifts featuring favorite photos. From the living room to the kitchen, discover how to add personal touches your guests will notice — and appreciate!

The Living Room

Create a comfy, cozy vibe in your living room with Sherpa Fleece Blankets featuring treasured family photos. Partner the throws with Photo Books stacked on the coffee table for a snuggly scene that’s just perfect for lazy afternoons spent reliving holiday memories from years past.


The Guest Room

When setting up bedrooms for out-of-town family, place personalized Reusable Shopping Bags in each room and fill them with travel essentials like toothbrushes and cotton swabs. Guests are bound to forget something and will breathe a sigh of relief when they realize you have them covered!

2The Halls

Take stock of the photos you have hanging on walls, displayed on tables and propped on the mantel. Is everyone in the family represented? From a cousin’s new fiancé to a niece’s new baby, there may be some recent additions you’re missing. Print photos that feature these new family members and add them to the mix so they feel included.

3The Kitchen

If a hot cup of coffee or cocoa brings your family together during the holidays, plan ahead and create Photo Mugs for each guest. This personalized surprise will instantly put them at ease, ensuring a smile with every sip.

Creating fun-filled photo greeting cards

Sending personalized photo greeting cards is an easy way to show friends and family that you care. When loved ones receive your custom cards, they’ll be excited to see personal photos and cherished memories along with a printed message or a handwritten note from you. Take a look at some of the occasions you may want to remember with a photo card.

Valentine’s Day

Tell friends and family that they have a special place in your heart; send them a personalized photo card. Add a picture of your family or just include the kids and make Valentine’s Day cuter than ever. You can even send your kids to school with flat cards that can be cut in half for a small Valentine that’s perfect for exchanging. Flat cards come in sets of 20 and include envelopes.

Mother’s Day

Show Mom some love with a 5×7 folded card featuring a favorite photo of you both. Or get your family to tell her how much she is appreciated with a card that includes them all. Folded cards are perfect for occasions when you want to celebrate someone in particular because they are sold individually with an envelope.

Thank You

Send a special note of thanks with a custom greeting card that lets friends and family know just how grateful you are. To send a thank you for holiday gifts, you may want to add some of your favorite pictures from a holiday gathering or to say thank you for a special favor, you could send a picture of you holding a beautiful bouquet.

Whether you already have a photo in mind or not, it’s easy to get started!

  • First, choose your occasion or holiday.
  • Select a card with a portrait or landscape orientation that complements or frames your photo well. You can also select a photo that works well with a postcard design that you like.
  • Narrow your search by style or sentiment.
  • Each custom photo card comes in a variety of sizes and can be printed on glossy or matte photo paper.

Always remember to edit your photos to remove red-eye and change color, size and brightness according to your preference. Different fonts can also help you add your own style to any card. When you’ve finished creating the perfect card, ordering is simple. Review your card and choose the quantity. It’s as simple as that. So, create your photo card now and make someone’s day tomorrow.
