Celebrate Christmas With Choosey Greetings Cards* & 25% Off

Christmas. The one word you can't avoid hearing at the moment. The festive spirit is in the air, the holidays are coming and now we have even more of an excuse than just being bloggers to adorn everything we own in fairy lights and bunting. You've got the presents sorted, the LBD for your Xmas Night Out and managed to nab a last minute appointment to get your brows done pre obligatory Christmas family photos. But... did you remember to pick up Christmas cards?

I ALWAYS forget about Christmas cards, meaning that I spend a lot of my time at Christmas in the office hiding, feeling proper sly that I forgot to get anyone a card and trying to avoid having to do that awkward 'thank you' to better organised humans who actually remembered.

And yeno, there's also the fact that most greetings cards at this time of year are either ridiculously old fashioned and traditional [which I'm defo not], insanely lame [with terrible puns and naff looking cartoon Santas], plastered in glitter that sheds everywhere and RUINS LIVES or way OTT with the verses inside. Like you know, I do love those closest to me and all that, but some of these verses are like, chapters long and a bit too emosh for me to cope with. So this was the situation I faced. But then, I found Choosey* - and kaboom, all my Christmas Card Conundrums were solved.

Merry Christmas Tinsel Tits Card*, £2.99

Everything's done online these days. It's just so much more convenient, isn't it? We can shop in our pjs [without having to leave bed] and have someone hand deliver our shopping to us within one hour, in some cases. Which is fantastic - but a downside to this digital day and age, is that time flies by before our eyes. Before you know it, it's been weeks since you've spoken to some of your friends or family members; but because you've liked a couple of their photos on Insta, your mind tricks you into thinking you've remained connected.

Christmas, despite all its good intentions, can be one of the loneliest times of the year for those who don't have many friends or family members living close to them. So I reckon this year, we should all use the technology we have so readily available at our fingertips to reach out to someone we've not spoken to in a while.

No matter how busy you are, how unsociable your working hours are or how many miles you live away from your family - Choosey's got your back; for all your traditional Greetings Cards needs... or for something a little bit different, too. Keep reading to find out the ultra modern twist you can add to Choosey Cards.

Merry Christmas Card*, £2.99 | Home Alone Quote Card*, £2.99

But now... back to that twist I mentioned earlier. 

As well as offering traditional greetings cards [which you can have printed or write yourself by hand]... Choosey also lets you create printed video greetings cards, which work by the 'magic' of Augmented Reality. How cool is that?!

So you start by creating your card as normal [which, by the way, doesn't necessarily have to be a Christmas card; Choosey have a card for every occasion you can think of!] You can choose to have a message printed inside, or have the card blank; for you to handwrite when it arrives. Then, through the miracle of modern technology, you can upload a video to your card; using either your computer or via the Choosey App on your phone or tablet [available on Apple App Store or on the Google Play Store.] The video prints as a unique code in your card - which, when scanned by another phone or tablet running the Choosey App, displays the hidden video to your recipient. 

It's SUCH a clever idea - you could upload a video of yourself wishing the other person Happy Christmas, or maybe you could upload an old video, personal to the friend you're gifting. Something to make them smile and feel connected to you; no matter how long it's been or how far away they are from you.

White Merry Christmas Card*, £2.99 | Jingle My Balls Card*, £2.99

The cards themselves are high quality, glossy and even though these are classed as Standard sized, cheaper [£2.99] cards - they're really big!! I was super impressed. You can order the cards to be sent direct to your recipient, or back to you with a spare envelope; like I did.

#TeamRudolph Card*, £2.99 | Nothing Says Christmas Like A Piece Of Folded Card, Card*, £2.99

I love how modern and fun Choosey's designs are - and how there's a style for everyone - traditional, funny, cute, rude, modern, animals - all lovingly created by independant designers. And obv I chose the rudest, funniest options there were for this post, haha - but that's just me!

I'll definitely use Choosey again; my whole experience with them has been flawless. Delivery was fast, their prices are super reasonable and the quality is really high. The only difficult part of this experience was being able to just pick out a handful of cards - there's so many incredible designs on Choosey's website, it took me the best part of three hours to whittle down my choices to these ten!
