PM writes, "I love this site so so much and I've used other shopper requests to help me shop for friends and family. This, however, is kind of a weird request. I'm probably one of a few people who still writes Christmas Cards but it is something I absolutely love doing! My problem is that I used to get mine at Borders and now that they're no longer in business...yeah. I traditionally get cards with a more modern looking front (such as a cityscape with a sleigh visible in the sky). But also sparkly. I have about 40 cards to send and would like to keep my budget under $65 (for all 40). Thanks so much!"
Hey PM! Don't worry, you're not alone in your traditional snail mail seasonal greetings! I love sending Christmas cards every year. Half the fun is finding a good bunch of cards--you want them to stand out on the mantle! I found a few modern designs that fit your budget, but if they don't have enough sparkle for you, try checking out etsy.com. You may have an easy time finding exactly what you want from an independent artist!

Plus, I make all of my beauty purchases online just so I can get free trial size samples in the mail. If you're not sure about a product, chances are I've tried it!
