It's beginning to look a lot like... the holidays! Once Black Friday deal busters begin (often before Thanksgiving!) and late-night panic purchases of all those gift tags you just realized you needed, it can be easy to forget about the true meaning of the holiday season. If you love hiding presents, making eggnog and getting your friends and family into the celebratory spirit, you're probably also the person who's known for sending the perfect holiday card. There's so much to organize, purchase and wrap this season, don't worry about coming up with something creative and unique — we've got you covered. Use these 40 holiday quotes for your cards, captions and photo book titles, which cover Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s and more.

And after all that time spent on holiday presents decor, it's no wonder your camera roll is filled with cute shots of your family in coordinating outfits (and pictures of all those presents you spent hours wrapping). Don't let those pics get lost in your phone, print them in a holiday-inspired photo book, or hang them on your wall with Canvas Wall Tiles.
