Share Holiday Joy This Season with American Greetings

Cleveland (Dec. 16, 2016) – Christmas is the perpetual winner for the most-popular card-sending holiday, and the festive selection of social expressions from American Greetings makes it easy to see why. As the colder weather sets in, merry greetings that are sure to warm the hearts of loved ones are the perfect way to share holiday joy. Whether you’re mailing Christmas cards, sending a digital greeting from a mobile device, wrapping gifts, or setting the table for a party - American Greetings has everything you need.

Shoppers visiting the card aisle will find an array of options for their circle of family and friends, ranging from traditional Christmas wishes to humorous and kids’ offerings. In addition to the classic holiday icons and idyllic winter scenes that evoke a sense of nostalgia, the selection of card designs that incorporate contemporary looks echoes today’s style preferences and relationships. The new Everyday Grace collection features holiday cards with positive, uplifting, conversational language where faith is reflected in the message, but isn’t the message itself. 

Whether they've been naughty or nice, the playful sentiments found on the paper and digital cards from the justWink brand help celebrate Christmas in unexpected ways. (Think cats wearing reindeer antlers and shooting lasers from their eyes or an infographic explaining what’s inside Santa’s beard.)

With a variety of cute, heartfelt, humorous and customizable ecards, the options are endless. Your most-tech-savvy card recipient will be thrilled to receive our brand-new customizable Snow Globe Wishes ecard that boasts such realistic animation that it truly looks like you are shaking a real snow globe!

According to the National Retail Federation, gifts make up the largest portion of consumers’ holiday budgets – so don’t forget to make the outside of the gift as thoughtful as what’s inside! Gift bags and wrapping paper featuring bright and bold designs with consumer-preferred Christmas icons and patterns are always a hit and come in a variety of sizes. Top it off with coordinating bows, tissue, trim and gift card holders for the perfect gift presentation. Be sure to pick up your party goods and accessories to give the season’s many celebrations that extra bit of cheer.
