    I'm looking for best practices for keeping track of who I send Christmas cards to - I'd like to use the Contacts app if possible.

    One thought is to create a Group and drag contacts to it.

    Another approach would be to create a smart group, and have it search for text within individual cards "Holiday Card".

    But - How do I handle one household with multiple contacts (husband and wife for example)? I'd like the count of Contacts in the Group to help me with how many cards to order - so should be de-duped by Household.

    Yes, I created a group and drag those contacts who I send a card to. For me that was the easiest solution.

    I just type "xmas" in the notes field for card recipients. Then each year I just type xmas into the search field and it only shows my xmas contacts. Then command-a to select all and command-p to print (save) to a PDF. I have been doing this three years and it works perfectly.
