There’s something very special about receiving a hand written card in the mail. In a time when emails, Facebook messages, tweets and texts can fly back and forth between friends in an instant, their words and meaning are just as quickly forgotten. Luckily the holiday tradition of sending cards to the people we love continues to carry on year after year. Classic holiday cards decorated with winter scenes and red and green color combinations are nice, but nothing out of the ordinary. This year, why not add some tropical flare to your holiday greeting cards? Two of our LeiHut vendors make it easy.
