Christmas Card Help
Dear all,

As Christmas is approaching pretty fast, my team members in horse riding lesson suggested that we should buy something for our trainner. Instead of buying seperately we came up with an idea that we'll divide things between us.

So as it was decided that One guy will get flowers, 2nd will get chocolates and I'll be getting a Christmas Card.

If you look at my habits you'll find out that I am very bad (infact worst) person to buy any kind of gift for anyone. That is the reason why I take my friends and family for lunch or dinner on their birthdays. However in this case I am sure time would not permit me to do so.

So I ask you all, what sort of Christmas card should I buy for our trainer which she would love! :-)

Any ideas will be welcome (any website links where I can buy cards will be welcomed too).

Many thanks

Oh and our trainer is a girl (in-case if there are men type Christmas cards out there. they wouldn't suit her).:D

Do you know in fact that she celebrates Christmas? If not a 'happy holidays' or a 'season's greeting' card might be in order.

The first thing I thought of when I saw the titled was "talk to Moxie" :lol: so I'm glad Moxie turned out to be the first one to have posted a reply! :D

Well she is Christian and I am sure she would celebrate Christmas. :-). I just don't know what kind of card would be good. Big ones, small ones, colourful ones, simple ones.....It's quite hard to find something for someone who you know let alone for those who you don't know that much.

Aaaaaa! hahaha :-)

Pretty much everyone celebrates Christmas over here, regardless of religion or faith, so I wouldn't worry about whether or not it says 'Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year'. Get something classy-looking, perhaps with a bit of sparkles - nothing with ridiculous cutesy cartoon figures. A medium-sized card, e.g. 15cmx15cm.

This style:
is better than this style:

Thanks Claire, I'll be going to the city center on Saturday to find one for her. Lets see what I find out. I will try and take a photo of it to show it here :-)

Ok guys I bought one after spending 1 hour in the Card shop. It took me so long because I could not find any neutral card (it was all about Christmas to Dad, Mum, Sister, Brother, Girl friend, Boy friend, Sister in law, Brother in law, Auntie, grand dad, Grand mum, Friend, and so many other relational cards but none related to general Christmas card.).

After asking help from a hot shop assistant, I finally got one. If my instructor doesn't like it I am going to go back to the shop and .... hahaha... just kidding :-).

Here it is,

Please note the actual card is with white sprinkles and bright white. This photo is from my XDA camera which sucks.

However you got the idea?! :D

Oh and it has been taken in my shop office if you wondering what is at the background. haha :D
