33 Best Christmas Card Holder Ideas to Display Holiday Cards 2023

And so the influx of holiday cards begins! The annual tradition of sending and receiving Christmas cards is a kind and heartwarming gesture to let loved ones know you are thinking of them during the holiday season. It’s also a great excuse to get the family together for a yearly picture to show how everyone has grown and changed. However, the dilemma of the season soon becomes: What do you do with all of the Christmas cards you've received?

Our solution is to display them using a festive Christmas card holder, rather than plastering your fridge doors or simply keeping them in a pile somewhere. If you’d rather take on a Christmas craft, you can opt to make a DIY Christmas decoration to display your holiday photos and cards. We have plenty of creative ideas from bloggers in addition to the ready-to-buy card holders on our list. However you choose to present them, putting your cards on show is a great way to feel connected to loved ones near and far during the holiday season.

Depending on your decor style, there are festive card displays fit for every vibe: modern farmhouse, minimalist, traditional, and more. Browse through our top picks to find the perfect Christmas card holder for your home in 2023.
