When You Care Enough to Hit 'Send' -- The Best Places to Buy Electronic Holiday Cards

Need to send some last-minute holiday greetings stat? We rounded up the best e-card sites -- no stamps required

American Greetings

American Greetings

americangreetings.com

American Greetings is the world’s largest greeting card company, so you know its selection of e-cards won't disappoint. There's everything from funny talking animals to customizable photo frames. But our personal favorite is the animated Santa’s List card, where you can write a message that's read aloud by Mr. Claus himself. There are plenty of free cards, or you can pay $3.99 a month for an unlimited supply.

Punch Bowl

Punch Bowl

You may have used Punch Bowl before when planning a party, but the site is also a great source for customizable e-cards that look as good as paper ones. We're loving this sparkling, festive Holiday Peace card -- and its positive message. Get an unlimited supply for $19 a year.

Hipster Cards

Hipster Cards

hipstercards.com

Have some craft beer-drinking, skinny jeans-wearing friends who made the Nice list this year? Send them one of the cheeky, slightly sarcastic e-cards from Hipster Cards. They're free and unlike anything else you'll find on other sites. We especially love this Keep Calm and Kiss On message -- come on, you know you want to send it to that special someone!

Hallmark

Hallmark

hallmarkecards.com

Hallmark is synonymous with adorable greeting cards, so it should come as no surprise that its e-card selection is just as good. Exhibit A: This funny Dreidel Dance Off animated e-card, which is sure to bring laughs to the Hanukkah dinner table. An annual subscription to the site costs $12, which buys you access to e-cards and a helpful reminder service that alerts you when important birthdays and anniversaries are coming up. Genius.

Fleeting Greeting

Fleeting Greeting

fleetinggreeting.com

For the design-obsessed friend, we suggest Fleeting Greeting. The free e-card site has a beautiful selection that's worthy of emailing, pinning, tweeting and sharing. Our favorites are the chipper pink and aqua Merry Christmas card and the bright Happy card, which can be customized for whatever you're celebrating this season.

MoMA

MOMA

moma.org

For holiday cards that are anything but ho-hum, check out the selection at The Museum of Modern Art -- they're sourced from artwork in MoMA's vast collection. We think Robert Indiana’s classic Love print sums up the holiday spirit perfectly.

Blue Mountain

Blue Mountain

bluemountain.com

One of the oldest card and e-card sites around, Blue Mountain is a veritable treasure trove. Expect to find everything from classic to funny to animated cards -- our fave is the adorable Bear-y Warm Wishes. Send as many cards as you want during a free seven-day trial, or register for a membership. Plans range from $3.99 a month to $19.99 a year, and include access to e-cards and print at home cards.

Funny. Controversial. Maybe even slightly offensive... that’s what the holidays are all about, right? The free e-cards from Someecards.com are a guaranteed way to make your friends laugh this holiday season. We have to admir, we LOL'd at the Environmentally Friendly holiday card.
