Your parents do it. Your friends do it. Hey, even Grandma Janet still sends an annual reminder to confirm she knows what month it is. Yes, we’re talking about holiday cards, and yes, they’re still a thing.
Countless celebrities are flooding social media with this year’s mementos. So, if you want to save yourself the trouble of scrolling through Instagram, keep reading for the merriest celeb holiday cards of 2018.
The former Bachelorette shared a photo of this year’s holiday card, which features herself; her fiance, Justin Pasutto; and their two children, Leo (2) and Annie (2 months). When in doubt, pretend it was supposed to be candid.
Jessica Alba & Cash Warren
Seasonably appropriate pajamas? Check. All three children? Check. Two (semi) sane parents? Gang’s all here!
Instead of featuring a photo of her husband, Mark Consuelos, and three children—Michael (21), Lola (17) and Joaquin (15)—Kelly Ripa opted for a pic of the actor’s Riverdale family.
Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott
Unlike last year’s card, which featured dark hues, Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott and their five kids—Liam (11), Stella (10), Hattie (7), Finn (6) and Beau (1)—opted for a bright color scheme. Coordination at its finest.
You can’t go wrong with superb selfie lighting. Take Kendra Wilkinson and her two kids, Hank (9) and Alijah (4), for example.
We can only imagine how many tries it took to get 7-month-old Cairo to look at the camera. Props to Tia Mowry, husband Cory Hardrict and their 7-year-old son, Cree. (#MissionAccomplished)
Nick & Vanessa Lachey
Sure, their youngest son, Phoenix (1), isn’t looking. But all three children—including Camden (6) and Brooklyn (3)—are showing off their pearly whites, so we’ll consider this a win.

Busy Philipps and her husband, Marc Silverstein, brought their kids—Birdie (10) and Cricket (5)—to the Happiest Place on Earth for their holiday photo.

All we want for Christmas is a photo of everyone looking (dog included).
