If there's ever been a year to be extra grateful for our pets, it's been this one. Amidst the long months of social distancing and staying at home amidst the coronavirus pandemic, spending extra quality time with our four-legged friends has been a bright spot. Long walks with our dogs, couch cuddles with our cats, chatting with our parrots, dressing up our bunny for Halloween...the highlights reel of recent memories with our beloved pets goes on and on.

And during this difficult year, as we spend the holiday season apart from many of our loved ones, a holiday photo card featuring our canine, feline, or other animal friends can be a pick-me-up for friends and family, too. That's why we were so excited to see minted.com's pet holiday cards collection.

With all of minted's collection featuring the work of independent artists, there's no shortage of unique and dazzling designs. This season, we're especially loving the peace + love + treats card, the paws to enjoy the season card, barking around the Christmas tree card, and the not a creature was stirring card. It's been a ruff year is another greeting card favorite of ours for the holiday season. For all of the cards in minted's photo cards collection, you simply upload your photo(s), and choose further customization details like the color theme, text, and paper type. The process is fun, simple, and with pricing starting at $137 for 105 postcards to $190 for 8"-by-6" inch cards, these playful, personalized greetings won't break the bank. (Pro tip: If you don't go with a COVID-19- era card that nods to the ongoing pandemic, write your card's text with words that don't specify the date so you can use extra cards to send to different people in your life next year.)
