Babble Best Holiday eCards of 2011
If your November came and went without any thought of holiday photo sessions or card ordering, there's no need to panic. E-cards may have originally been looked at as a cheesy, last-minute stand-in for greeting cards, but today's versions are more entertaining, convenient, and sometimes more thoughtful than their paper alternatives. (And the fact that you can wait until the very last minute certainly is a plus.) Although nothing can replace the feel of cardstock or the excitement of getting an envelope in the mail, many of these e-cards would blow away even the most dedicated paper enthusiast. So whether you're looking for photo cards, video greetings, or even holiday party e-vites, we rounded up our favorite e-card options for the holidays and beyond. Did we miss one you love sending out? Nominate it here! - Michelle Horton
