‘Tis the season for buying Christmas cards, and reconnecting with your loved ones. While there are lots of classic Christmas card options out there, we think a funny card is a great alternative to a standard holiday greeting card. Humor makes your card stand out from the rest of the pack, and who doesn’t want to be more memorable? Make the holidays more fun with one of our favorite funny Christmas cards. We’ve rounded up lots of funny options that will suit any budget. Humor is a very subjective thing, so we’ve curated a list that includes card designs that will appeal to different senses of humor. So whether you’re a fan of slightly raunchy cards or looking for something funny-yet-family-friendly, there’s something on our list below that will tickle your funny bone. When selecting a holiday card, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. Think about your own humor and sensibility, as well as those of your intended recipients. You might think a card with off-color language is hilarious, but if your grandma is on your card list, she might be less impressed. It’s also important to take note of how many cards are sold in a pack. You may want to select a card design that’s sold in multiples that make sense for the total number of cards you want to send out. For example, if you have exactly 50 cards to send out, you might not want to select a set of cards that come in boxes of 12, because you’d have to buy four boxes to get to 48 cards, plus an additional box to get to 50. There would be a few of leftover cards, which you may want to avoid as a cost-saving measure. Most Christmas cards come with envelopes, but it’s always good to double check, because finding envelopes is an additional stress (and an additional cost). Some sets of cards come with exactly the same number of cards as envelopes, while others include one or two extra envelopes, to give you coverage in the event of a leaky pen or an incorrect address.

1. NobleWorks ‘Stressful Holidays’ Merry Christmas Greeting Cards
This design is funny, and perfect for those who have a lot of cat lovers on their Christmas card list. It’s also perfect for anyone who feels chronically stressed out during the hectic holiday season. The interior of the card reads: “Hope your holidays are a knockout. Merry Christmas”. These cards come in boxes of 12 cards, and come with festive red envelopes. NobleWorks has a couple of additional funny Xmas cards design that will appeal to cat lovers, including this funny “holiday returns” style and this card with two cats hanging out next to a fallen Christmas tree.
Price: $18.99 for a set of 12 cards (17 percent off MSRP)
2. Hallmark Star Wars ‘Yoda’ Christmas Card
Looking for a Christmas card that will appeal to your fellow Star Wars fans? This cute card features Yoda, along with some “Yoda speak” greetings. The front of the card reads, “Here, Christmas is…” while the interior reads, “…very merry, you must be!” This card ships with a perfectly sized, perfectly festive red envelope. We like this design a lot, but due to the somewhat high price of each individual card, this may be a better option for those with a relatively small Christmas card list. That being said, if you’re a die hard Star Wars fan, you may be perfectly happy with the price of this funny design.

3. Hipster Christmas Cards From The Invite Lady
These hilarious hipster Christmas cards are perfect for the hipsters in your social circle. They come in a set of 12 cards, with three total designs available. You get four of each card design in the set of 12. Red envelopes are included, so you can drop these in the mail as soon as you grab some stamps. If hipster isn’t really your vibe, you could consider these darkly funny snowman Christmas cards instead.

4. 24 Assorted Funny Christmas Cards by Stonehouse Collection
These are the kind of lightly funny, kind-hearted cards that are perfect for sending to your more conservative friends and family members. Each box contains an assortment of 24 different cards, pulling from eight different designs, so you’ll get three of each design in every box. Many of these designs feature misbehaving reindeer who are too busy with their smartphones to do what Santa wants them to do. One nice perk about this set of cards is that you get 25 envelopes for 24 cards, so if you make a mistake addressing one envelope, you’ve got an extra.
Price: $22.95 for 24 cards (8 percent off MSRP)
5. NobleWorks ‘Amazon Prime’ Funny Christmas Card
This is a card that will resonate with any frequent Amazon shopper. The front of the card reads: “The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes Amazon Prime soon would be there.” The interior of the card reads: “Christmas is coming! Merry Christmas”. These cards ship in sets of 12 (all the same design), and include white envelopes for mailing. If this isn’t quite what you had in mind, we also like this funny “Frosty in a hot tub” card from the same company.
Price: $18.99 for 12 cards (17 percent off MSRP)
6. American Greetings Funny Santa Christmas Card With Music
This is another funny card with a somewhat high individual price point. But if you have a relatively small Christmas card list (or just want to impress your friends with a fancy card), this may be a great option for you. This musical greeting card plays “Here Comes Santa Claus” when opened. The interior of the card reads “Of course, after 1.8 billion glasses of Milk, it could just be his ‘I need to pee’ dance.”
Price: $7.99 for each card
7. Tim Whyatt’s Christmas Crack Ups: Assorted Box Of 10 Hilarious Christmas Cards
This assorted box of 10 cards includes one of each of the designs pictured above. Some of these cards are definitely on the raunchy side, so take a close look at each one and make sure they won’t be objectionable to anyone on your Christmas card list. Overall, this is one of the funnier assortments we found online. If you have a more adult sense of humor, this set will definitely appeal to you and your card recipients.
Price: $14.99 for 10 cards (17 percent off MSRP)
8. Set of 12 ‘Born In A Barn’ Funny Christmas Cards
Looking for a religious card that’s still funny? While this card may not appeal to those who don’t want to take the Lord’s name in vain, it’s definitely a solid choice for many folks. The interior of the card is mostly blank, save for a “Season’s Greetings”, so you have plenty of room to write a personal note to your recipient. A version of this card with an entirely blank interior is also available. Both come with red envelopes for mailing.
Price: $18.99 for a dozen cards (17 percent off MSRP)
9. ‘Naughty is Nice’ Assorted Hilarious Christmas Cards
Love the retro look? This saucy Christmas cards are perfect for those who like their Christmas cheer tempered with a side of Christmas sarcasm or Christmas grumpiness. Each box includes one of 10 different designs, along with 12 total envelopes, in case you make a mistake when addressing the cards. These cards are funny, but a couple of them use naughty language or innuendo, so if you’re looking for a funny-yet-“clean” Christmas card, this is probably not the best option for you.
Price: $14.99 for 10 cards (17 percent off MSRP)
10. ‘Pug Tooter’ Hallmark Christmas Greeting Card With Fart Sound
This farting pug Christmas card makes a fart sound when squeezed. The interior of the card reads, “Hope your Christmas reeks of joy.” And for a card that plays back sound, it’s quite affordable. This is a great Christmas card to send to dog lovers, or send if you’re a pug owner yourself. This card may be a little juvenile in its sense of humor, but it will definitely appeal to a wide variety of people. We also like that it’s more special than a standard Christmas card, so it will definitely stand out on a mantelpiece if your recipient chooses to display their cards.
Price: $4.99 for a single card (23 percent off MSRP)
