    Busy Moms Can Survive The Holiday By Hiring A Holiday Card Service

    Busy mama, did you know that you can order personalized Christmas cards online?

    All you have to do is hire a holiday card service such as Basic Invite to create bulk holiday cards for you.

    Then you can rest assured that your cards are being taken care of.

    They have several unique card designs you can select from.

    But I would talk about a few.


    Photo Cards

    Maybe you have a military spouse or parents that won’t be home for Christmas, why not send them customized holiday photo cards.

    It sure would make them feel close to home during the festive season.

    Foil cards

    The foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold and you(the customer) can choose either a raised or flat design.


    Invitation cards

    And if you are throwing a holiday party, be sure that you can leave the holiday party invitations to Basic Invite.

    Here are some of the qualities that set Basic Invite apart from other online stationery companies

    Basic Invite Has Over 180 Colors

    With over 180 colors to choose from, you would definitely find the exact colors you want on your holiday card.

    Just select a card design and change the color of each element on it.

    Basic Invites Customers Can Order A Sample Of Their Cards Before The Final Order

    Oh! Before I forget, Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allow their customers to order a sample of their cards.

    To see how the card will look after it is printed, feel the quality of the paper, and maybe change the colors again before you place your final order.

    So your cards look exactly how you want them.

    Isn’t that sweet?

    Address Capturing Service

    Struggling to get everyone’s addresses?

    Basic Invite offers an address capturing service.

    This allows customers like you and me to share a link on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and more) to request our friends’ and families’ addresses.

    The addresses are stored in your account and can be selected during the design process.

    And Basic Invite would print each recipient’s address on each envelope for FREE, on all card orders.

    So you won’t have to worry about addressing every envelope, yourself.

    Take Some Time To Relax In Order To Survive The Holiday Craze.

    Yes mama, I know you have to do everything or better still make sure everything is perfect.

    But you need to take some time to rest, so you don’t burn out from the holiday craze.

    After all, you need to be well to take care of everyone else, as the live-in Santa.

    Some of the ways you can relax are by

    Declutter Your Home Just Because

    Most of us declutter during the holidays to create room for gifts and all that.

    But growing up, we declutter and deep clean the house just because…

    Or maybe the holiday stress can make you claustrophobic, get rid of things you don’t need.

    I know this because I get claustrophobic when I am overwhelmed.

    Whatever your reason is for decluttering before Christmas, do it anyway.

    My mom says “a clean house is a cool house”, temperature-wise. Lol

    And try to sell all that clutter on Poshmark or Mercari or just give them away.

    To Win At Christmas, Busy Moms Can Plan Their Holiday Meals Ahead of Time

    I have no idea what you cook for Christmas or your holiday parties.

    But in order to win at Christmas, I would suggest you plan your holiday meals ahead of time.

    You can season your chicken and freeze it in preparation for a Christmas party.

    Most grocery stores sell finger foods that you can toss in the oven and will be ready in minutes.

    Those will come in handy for your parties.

    So that you too will have some time to dress up chic and host your visitors.

    Don’t forget to order your holiday party invitations from Basic Invite.

    Make Gift-Giving Simpler But More Special With Customized Holiday Cards

    Santa mommy, you don’t have to do everything the same way every time.

    You can make gift-giving simpler but more special with customized holiday cards from Basic Invite.

    Or if you are a DIYer, you can make a homemade gift for your loved ones to go with the cards.

    Sometimes, the little things are more appreciated than the ones you broke a sweat over.

    I love the emphasis on self care. Take a nap- YES!! Also, I think the photo cards are such a thoughtful idea and pretty much a gift in themselves!

    Of course, you have to be well to take care of everyone else. And the photo cards with your kid's photo would make grandparents or spouses very happy. Thanks for reading, Sadie. xx.
