Christmas Cards as Gifts - Unique Ideas for your Family Christmas Card this Holiday Season

If your family sends out a Christmas card every year, you may be seeking some unique and fun ideas to make this year's family holiday card memorable. As a family company with the Love Your Family brand of apparel, we are fortunate that our customers and friends and family share with us so many of their amazing creative ideas. Even though it is early in the season - although many people who purchase our matching Christmas Pajamas for adults with matching playwear outfits for childrens every year are already shopping early - I though I would share with you some of the fun and unique ideas that we have seen for creating a great Christmas Card to send to all family and friends.

** Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational and entertainment purposes. Footsteps Clothing sells pajamas in adult sizes only and does NOT sell pajamas in childrens sizes. All outfits in childrens sizes are designed as playwear and not intended for sleeping activities.

Often these fun cards are used as gifts and framed or put in scrapbooks or hung on the walls year after year. For my family, we take a goofy fun family picture every year and upload it to a photo website and have it printed on a calendar for the upcoming year. We upload pictures of our family vacations and other traditions in the respective month to complete the calendar. My children LOVE getting their personalized calendar year after year and they have such fun looking back on previous years events.

Here are a few other fun ideas for your family Christmas Card this year:

- Take a picture wearing matching family holiday pajamas for adults and they kids can wear matching coordinating play outfits, put on some boots and hats and scarves, and go outside. Find a snowy tree or a snowman to included as a member of the family and snap an outdoor shot.

- Traipse through the mall wearing your matching holiday outfits to a photo studio and get a fun professional picture taken. The fun is in walking through the crowded mall - you will get lots of fun attention.

- Instead of a boring smiling pose, mix it up by making a human pyramid.

- Dont forget the family dog in your family Christmas Card (we are thrilled that now we offer matching doggie pjs for families with canine friends who partake in the holiday spirit)
