Tropical Christmas Cards to Personalize With Photos and Text

by dustytoes

Christmas cards that celebrate the tropical lifestyle are fun to send to shivering, snow-bound friends and relatives!

Living in a tropical climate means celebrating Christmas without snow and ice and freezing temperatures. Sending Christmas cards depicting typical December weather is not appropriate in the minds of many, and they search out fun cards with a theme of warmth. Santa on the beach, flamingos wearing red hats, and snowmen made of beach sand are common designs.

Find a variety of new tropical Christmas card options here. These cards and postage stamps (US only) include beautiful beaches and turquoise ocean water. Some have seashells and Hawaiian flowers, and all of them are customizable!

Add your own photos and custom message to affordable photo cards and postcards, as well as traditional folded cards. Then find some fun starfish postage to match the theme.

Christmas photo cards with a tropical theme.

These affordable greetings were created for those living in a warm climate.

Send tropical Christmas cards with a family photo.  These cards are your typical glossy photo cards, but with a theme that portrays a coastal lifestyle.  Whether it's where you live year round, or the place to escape for a long, December vacation, family and friends will appreciate receiving a personal picture.

Living in a climate where the sun shines most every day gives locals the ability to enjoy the great outdoors a bit more than those of us who deal with ice and cold at holiday time.

When you think of the tropics, you no doubt picture the beautiful beaches too.  And the beach is a great place to spend a holiday.  Choosing Christmas greetings that portray beaches, palm trees and boating, is just natural for those who want to share (or brag) about their special way of celebrating.

Traditional, Folded Christmas Cards

With so many options these days, families are sending more than the typical, glossy photo cards.  Even traditional, folded Christmas or Hanukkah greetings can be personalized with a picture.

I certainly wish that the online, template option for creating Christmas cards had existed back when I did the whole Christmas card thing. The old school way was very time-consuming.

These days the print-on-demand Zazzle site makes sending holiday cards so very simple. The cards and ornaments on this page can all be found there, like this starfish family photo card.

First, find a card you like (with a photo template or not) and use the templates, or example areas, to change everything to your liking!  

Upload a photo, or more than one on some cards, and type in your signature and the whole set of cards will be ready to mail out when they reach your mailbox!  All you will have to do is address them.

Themes of a holiday season spent in the tropics.

The most obvious symbol of life in the tropics would be beaches, seashores and coastlines.  Most beach christmas cards include Santa enjoying the sunshine, or participating in water sports.  Sand castles in the form of holiday trees, decorated with sea life make a cute card image.

Other signs of life in the tropics include manatees, which are known as gentle giants.   Of course we can't forget the frightening alligator, with it's mouth overflowing with sharp teeth.  Both are typical southern creatures found in the wild.  They may not be as popular as dolphins and starfish, but they are residents of the tropics too.

Address Labels to Use at Christmas With a Tropical Theme

I have made many address labels during my years as a designer at Zazzle, but the ones that sell best have a tropical theme.  Now I combine that tropical theme with the Christmas holiday to offer new types of labels.  

Many people live in tropical areas around the world, and celebrate the holiday season without any worries of snow and ice.  Those people require cards, stamps, paper and address labels with a warm climate design.

The address labels at Zazzle come in three sizes.  Choose the skinny, medium or shipping label size, but not all designs will work on every size label.  For that reason I often make more than one type.  Medium size labels can fit four lines of text.  People who need an extra line for a condo or apartment number, may need the larger label.

Below I have shown some of the new and popular tropical Christmas address labels for sale in my Holiday Store.

Postcards are very affordable ways to send a holiday greeting.

A Christian Christmas postcard with scripture and a tropical beach scene is an affordable way to greet friends and family.  Express your faith during the holidays and share a beautiful image of God's handiwork at the same time.  This card contains scripture from Isaiah which reads, "And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."

I think so too. I could see it on a Florida wildlife themed tree.
