Funny Christmas Cards From Our Family to Yours

I love Christmas cards. When I only had one kid, I used to hand make them all. As my list and fear of the dog being glitter glued while I was pre-occupied grew, I turned to the glorious internet to help create one of a kind cards. I pride myself on creating funny Christmas cards. 

Sadly, it seems each year I get fewer and fewer. I get they are a pain in the ass, but I send them anyway. Usually, though, I end up paying for rush processing and expedited shipping because I procrastinate. This year, I am making it a point to finish while Tiny Prints still has their Cyber Week specials going. (Affiliate Link – though I wouldn’t recommend them if I didn’t use them). Specifically, I am going to take advantage of the 25% holiday cards coupon and free shipping over $49.00 through December 8th. Yes, I will spend that much because my cards are legendary and my list is still huge.

I am a big fan of the quality of Tiny Prints. From the ease of use for of the web application in creating cards to the feel of them in my hand, it is a great experience. There is no limit to the creativity. My love for Tiny Prints was solidified last year when I jumped ship and went with a different company for a less expensive option. For the first time since 2007, I didn’t love my Christmas card. 

This year, I am going back to Tiny Prints. Even though my card will eventually hit a few hundred recycle bins post holiday, I want the very best card to showcase our family’s sense of humor. Ok, my humor at the expense of my family.

Funny Christmas Cards Past

I wanted to share a few of my past cards because I want to get as much mileage out of these puppies as possible. Disclosure: I had to stop sending Christmas cards to my mother-in-law because she didn’t think I was nearly as funny as I did.







2009 – AKA the year I shaved my son’s head for Halloween






And another cool thing about Tiny Prints, is the ability to customize the inside of the card, too!

My kids are usually the stars for the annual Christmas card, but my husband has taken one for the team a time or two.

I am still undecided on this years card though I am determined to get them done by Sunday. Perhaps I could showcase pictures from hanging with 7000 naked bike riders when I turned 40. So do you still send traditional Christmas cards, e-cards, or forget it all together? 

(If you haven’t checked out Tiny Prints for yourself, you totally should. They have great deals this week, including 35% all gift items on Friday)

    OMG, hilarious!! I love making cards like that because I accomplish a few things: I embarrass the kids – I mean, I teach them how to raise their children (i.e. “pay it forward”) – and I piss off a few people that I won’t have to send cards to the next year!

    Poppy, I’m just jealous I hadn’t thought of doing funny cards like that!!! It is so much harder finding “good” pictures than the ones that show the real deal.

    I LOVE your captions. Especially the one “keeping it real.”

    This is the first year that I took over the Christmas cards – my husband always did it in the past. I included a less-than-perfect photo, and I have to say that I’m really looking forward to sending them out – late, of course.

    I love your lumpy, bruised, nose-picking family.

  • Lady Jennie ,

    Poppy! You are so risqué! I am totally cracking up at these! :-)

    And I think it’s amazing that you continue to send them out. I think it’s the overseas postage for me. The last one we did was for William’s birth 6 years ago and I sent out about 100. That put me back quite a bit.
