1. Sugartown Greetings Cute Animals Merry Christmas Cards Collection
Even the name of this greeting card company is cute. This set of cards features cute critters, including a bear, a fox, a raccoon, and a deer. This set of 24 cards gives you four of each of the six designs pictured above. The price is also quite reasonable, we’ve seen similarly large sets of greeting cards going for double the price of one 24-pack of this design. All cards say “Merry Christmas” on the front, while the interior is left blank for you to write a custom message. This cards a bit on the small side, at 4.875″ x 3.375″ when folded, so if you have a lot to write, you may want a bigger card. That being said, the small size means you may spend less on postage. Overall, this is a great design for animal lovers, nature documentary enthusiasts, or anyone who just thinks animals look cute in human clothes.
Price: $9.95 for 24 cards

2. 3D Papercraft Christmas Greeting Cards
We did these last year and they were a huge hit with our friends and family. These cute, delicate papercraft cards “pop up” when you open them, and they’re totally delightful. You get seven cards in each set, which is an odd number, but one that might work perfectly for you if you have some multiple of seven as the total number of people on your Christmas card list. These are the kinds of cards people love to display on the mantelpiece, or save for posterity. Designs included in this pack are as follows: Christmas tree, reindeer with frosted evergreen trees, a reindeer on a bridge, snowman with a tree, dancing Santas, a house with trees, and of course, Santa riding a motorcycle. There is a somewhat small area for writing a personalized message, so again, if you have a lot to say, you may want a card with more interior room for writing. These cards are quite expensive, so they may not be the most budget-friendly option if you have a lot of cards to go out this year. However, if you want something special and attention-grabbing, this is the right choice for you.
Price: $18.99 for seven cards (72 percent off MSRP)

3. Juvale Assorted Christmas Greeting Cards
The Santas are cute. The animals are cute. Even the font is cute. This pack is a winner. These cards comes 48 to a pack, making them an economical choice for those with very long Christmas card lists. There are six designs in total, so you get eight of each design in every pack. We appreciate that this card set comes with one “Happy Holidays” card, which is a nice option to have if you want to send holiday greetings to friends and family who don’t celebrate Christmas. The “peace and love” bear design is also a nice option for non-religious/non-Christian friends and family members. The interior of all cards are blank.
Price: $11.99 for 48 cards

4. Best Paper Greetings 48 Pack Winter Animal Designs Cards
This collection of 48 cards features six different designs. Each card features some adorable animal wearing a nordic-inspired textile like a sweater or a hat. This strike the perfect balance between elegant design and a high cuteness factor. All cards read “Happy Holidays” on the outside and blank on the inside. If you prefer the sentiment of “Happy Holidays” to “Merry Christmas” or “Season’s Greetings”, then this is the card set for you.

5. The Best Card Company Dog Christmas Cards
This is the ultimate cute Christmas card for dog lovers. The front of these cards features a group of dogs in Christmas hats, taking a selfie. The interior of the card simply reads “Merry Christmas”, but there’s plenty of room to add a personalized, handwritten message. These cards come in packs of a dozen. These cards have a glossy finish, rather than a matte finish. If you have a lot of dog owners on your Christmas card list, this cute option is definitely going to be a crowd-pleaser.
Price: $18.99 for 12 cards (17 percent off MSRP)

6. ‘Tis The Season’ Penguins Under Mistletoe Greeting Cards
These penguins under the mistletoe are just too much. I can’t even. If you like your cute Christmas cards with a whisper of romance, these are a great option. We could see this being the cute card of choice for newlyweds, or anyone else who believes in love. The cards are blank inside, and come with matching envelopes. If this design is too lovey-dovey (lovey-penguiny?) for you, another cute option we recommend is this cute hot cocoa snowman Christmas card.
Price: $7.99 for 18 cards (29 percent off MSRP)

7. Sustainable Greetings Christmas Cards
Sustainable Greetings markets these Christmas cards as “girly”, but we think they’re a charming option no matter what gender you identify with. There are 48 cards and envelopes included in every box, with all designs either reading “Season’s Greetings” or “Happy Holidays” on the front. The interiors are blank. We particularly like the wacky yeti and the fancy deer designs in this pack. If you’re looking for a set of Christmas cards that don’t actually say the word “Christmas” anywhere on them, this is a solid choice to consider.
Price: $11.99 for 48 cards (20 percent off MSRP)

8. Avanti Press Fat Cat & Cookie Crumbs Christmas Cards
If you love cats, this goofy cat card is a great option. It features a cat who’s eaten all the Christmas cookies left for Santa. The interior of the card reads: “Gonna Need a Bigger Chimney. Merry Christmas”. This design is available via the link below in packs of 10, 20, 50, or 100 cards. We like that no matter how many cards you buy in a pack, these designs come with matching envelopes. In fact, you get a couple of extra envelopes in every pack, which is great in the event of a pen mishap or if you make a mistake writing out an address.
Price: $12.95 for 10 cards (Other counts available, including 100 cards for $69.67)

9. Robert Sabuda Perky Puppy Boxed Holiday Pop Up Cards
This adorable pop up card is a great way to announce a new puppy joining your family this holiday season, or you can just send these cards because you love dogs. These cards are colorful, and we love the use of pink to keep things fresh. The main drawback here is the price. $22 only gets you six cards, which may be prohibitively expensive for some people. That being said, if you really love this design, and you have a smaller Christmas card list, this could still be a home run.
Price: $22 for six cards (X percent off MSRP)

10. Hallmark Signature Christmas Greeting Card (Cute Bear Die Cut With Santa Hat)
Paper cards are cool, but sometimes you want something special. This soft fabric card is perfect for those who want to stand out from the rest of the Christmas cards. The inside of the card reads: “Have a beary merry Christmas!” This soft card is a nice option for kids or the elderly, or anyone who loves bears in hats. However, the price point is on the high side, so if you’re looking for a bear card that’s more budget friendly, you might consider this 30-pack of holiday polar bear cards, which gives you 30 cards for about what you’d pay for two of these soft fabric cards.
Price: $7.99 each
