Holiday cards are often the first thing sent out during the season, however it usually finds itself pushed down, down, down our to-do lists. Don’t let this one slip away from you! Planning ahead will not only kick off the season with minimal stress, but it will also save you money by not having to pay for those hefty rush-shipping fees. There’s also a great sense of pride that comes when you get to sit back and relax while the rest of your friends scramble to get their cards together. Ha!
To start, create a list of all the friends and family you want to send a card to. Don’t forget to add extras for last minute additions, colleagues, etc. I highly recommend creating this list digitally so that you can easily print off the names and addresses once complete. A digital list also makes it easier to keep track of and make edits as people move or get married for years to come.
I have one absolute game-changing resource when it comes to holiday cards and planning for the holidays with ADHD: INeedYourAddress.com. This website provides you with a simple link to send out to your friends and family in order to collect their addresses (no more manually inputting them, but you can go in and make edits/additions if needed). Furthermore, this site also allows you to print the address directly onto peel-and-stick labels (purchased separately) for a small fee. This one-stop-shop has truly taken the stress out of mailing out holiday cards by keeping everything organized and easy to bring to life!
