The Best Celebrity Holiday Cards
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi
Can you guess the celeb inspiration for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi's holiday card? The celebrity couple created their own spin on Kim Kardashian's "break the internet" PAPER magazine cover, but with a slightly more modest approach. We think the red ribbons add an elegant touch! (Ellen DeGeneres is used to posing for the camera. Check out her high school photo in these Never Before Seen Photos! 15 Celebs as High School Athletes.)
The Duggar brood focuses on the true meaning of Christmas with this season's greeting. The Christmas card features a photo of the always-expanding family with "Happy Birthday Jesus" above written in script, and a Bible passage from Isaiah that tells the story of Jesus' birth.
It looks like Tori and Dean put all their drama behind them, because they and their children were all smiles in this year's photo. From the elegant glittery gold border to the chic gray backdrop, this is probably the most "normal" celebrity holiday card we've seen yet.
When Beyoncé makes a statement, it's silent and powerful. Instead of huge holiday card unveiling, her photo was quietly released by a lucky recipient on Instagram. But, don't expect a Carter family snapshot—it's actually just of Bey striking a pose and wearing 2015 glasses. We're guessing those glasses are going to be a big hit this New Year's Eve. (Beyoncé is one of our 8 Favorite Philanthropic Female Celebrities.)
Well, Hugh Hefner and wife Crystal Harris look cozy and festive in this year's Christmas photo. The loving dog owners made sure to get their pups in on the fun, too. Seriously, how cute are the paw print signatures below?
Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger
Joshua Jackson and wife Diane Kruger introduced the "Christmas card selfie." The couple decked themselves out in tinsel and Santa hats for this charmingly modern holiday card.
Seth Rogan and James Franco
Seth Rogen and James Franco took their bromance to the next level in this uncomfortablely festive shot. On Saturday Night Live, James joked about how he was the latest victim of the hacking scandal, and this intimate Christmas card was part of the leak.
Give the gift of Mindy Kaling this year. The actress and comedian teamed up with Farfetch to create these hilarious holiday gif cards. Each of the six cards has a fairytale princess paired a snarky caption (cue Mindy's witty humor) that accurately describes what the girl are really thinking. (She sure has a way with words. We just loved what she said in our roundup of Celeb Body Images Quotes We Love.)
The Kardashian/Jenner Clan
The Kardashians own the category for outrageous family Christmas cards. And since we're still weeping over the fact that Kim Kardashian and her clan are not releasing their annual card this year, we're bringing back this 2013 gem. From the glitzy backdrop to their over-the-top facial expressions, they sure know how to do it big. (Also, check out Kim K's killer six-pack in the 25 Female Celebrities with Awesomely Toned Abs.)
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burka
Neil Patrick Harris and David Burka managed to melt our hearts with this adorable holiday card from 2013. Their twins Harper and Gideon are front and center, smiling and laughing away, and reminding us that this season is all about happiness and joy. So we have to ask: Did this year's card get lost in the mail, fellas?
Sean "Diddy" Combs
What a happy looking family! Last year, Diddy rounded up his six kids to take this elegant black and white holiday portrait. Still waiting for this year's family pic....
Last year, Kelly Clarkson brought holiday cheer (and a few laughs) with this awkward family photo of her and the family "wrapped in red" decorations. The person responsible for this hostage? Santa Claus, who's indulging in his milk and cookies as the family awkwardly gives him the side-eye. Can't wait to see what she and her family have planned this year.
