Retail Boutique: Holiday Gift Cards

Sometimes generic grocery store greeting cards just don’t cut it. This holiday season, try wowing customers by offering a variety of original and affordable boutique cards your clients haven’t seen before, and you’ll save them one more stop in their busy holiday schedule.

Sidepony’s holiday collection features humorous cards designed and screen-printed by owner Kim Russell. The cards are filled with snarky holiday-themed messages — such as “did you spike my eggnog?”, “happy festivus,” “rock the halls,” and “hope your holiday isn’t frigid” — giving the chilly winter weather a bit of a kick. Additionally available are custom holiday cards. Both stock and custom cards can be shipped anywhere and are made from 100% recycled paper and non-toxic ink. Sidepony’s wholesale and retail merchandise is available for purchase online and in select stores across the U.S.

Smudge Ink’s 2011 holiday line features four new greeting cards in packs of six or 10. They are decorated with colorful snowflakes, bicyclists with presents, and red berries — each card gleaming with holiday cheer. Select cards are offered in a smaller gift-card size. Also available is the city/state holiday card series, which is a seasonal and heartwarming nod to the cherished landscapes of 18 different locales across the U.S. and Canada.

Smock is a wind-powered environmental stationery line that prints strictly on sustainable paper and donates 1% of all sales to environmental causes. In true holiday spirit, support Smock’s efforts by purchasing its holiday cards, which capture traditional wintery themes in soft, delicate pastels.  The company’s four best-selling cards are “Merry Christmas,” “Seahorse,” “Merry Everything,” and “Igloo.” Each card is accompanied by an envelope lined in a matching design.

JulieMcGDesigns’ holiday gift card packs allow your clients to celebrate in style this winter season. Each card features a warm and simple yet elegant design on its cover, and includes blank space inside for a personalized message. Retaining a special, handmade quality, these holiday cards are a great way to thank loyal salon customers. The wide variety of cards is available in packs of eight or sold separately.

Man vs. George Design’s modern greeting and holiday cards are printed on 100% recycled paper and feature color-rich designs that wrap around both the cards’ front and back. Festive as much as they are fun, the cards are available as singles or matching sets. You can also purchase the company’s Be Prepared Packs, which offer an assortment of greeting cards that cover many special occasions throughout the year. Enter promotion code MVGSHOW11 either online or in person to receive 11% off your entire purchase now through December 31.

Cara’s Scrap ’N Stamp Art offers unique, handmade holiday greeting cards, which can be purchased individually or in box sets of four. Made from quality cardstock — and decked with embellishments such as beads, rhinestones, and buttons — these cards feature designs and wording specific to winter holidays as well as the broader winter season. Enjoy a discount of 15% when you use coupon code “NAILSMAG” on Cara’s website before December 31.
