We’re heading into the holiday period and if you’ve forgotten what it’s like to send hand written greetings, here’s a chance to revive that tradition.

Felt makes it easy to send cards featuring your own handwriting through your iPhone or iPad. Just download the app and then design a card perfect for any occasion you need to send a greeting: graduation, wedding, congratulations—you name it!

Here’s how it works:

Scroll through your photos and select one that would be great for a card, or you can select a design out of Felt’s own library. There are hundreds of options to choose from on the site.

Next: use your finger or stylus to write a message. If your handwriting seems lacking on the screen, there are some cool designer fonts you can use.

Add in a handwritten address and you’re all done. Felt will print your card, seal it in a square envelope and even put on a hand-applied first class stamp. Your recipient will think it came straight from you, and really, it did.

The pricing begins at $3. That’s for one square card created on an iPhone, plus envelope and postage. All cards are printed on premium Mohawk paper and mailed within 24 hours of your order. The recipient will think you wrote it and stamped it yourself.

It can’t get more simple and affordable to reach out in a personal way–unless of course, you go old-school and buy an actual card. But who does that these days? Felt is a great way to remember people for any occasion throughout the year, but with the holidays approaching, you might find it more useful now than in July.

The 10 best movies to fall asleep to – from Pineapple Express to Friday
These are the kinds of comfort movies that make it easy to doze off
Bill Murray in Groundhog Day.

If you're a genuine movie lover, you've probably spent a fair amount of time falling asleep in front of your  TV or streaming device. Falling asleep in front of a movie can feel like a failure, but there's nothing wrong with snuggling up on the couch with a great movie and letting yourself doze off whenever you're ready. It doesn't necessarily speak to the movie's quality; sometimes, you're just tired, or you're so familiar with the beats of a certain film that you can't help but nod off.

There are some movies, though, that are especially great for sleeping. These are the movies that feel so comforting and warm that staying awake might be a challenge. Of course, you should try to watch every movie at least once all the way through. On a rewatch, though, you might find that these are the best movies to fall asleep to.

Ranked: The best Jack Nicholson movies ever made
From As Good as It Gets to Five Easy Pieces, these are the best Nicholson films
Jack Nicholson in Chinatown

Few actors in Hollywood's long history have had more legendary careers than Jack Nicholson. Ever since he first emerged as part of a new generation of acting talent in the late 1960s, Nicholson has proved that he's one of the greatest acting talents of his — or any other — generation, alongside the likes of Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. With a totally distinct look and an energy that is both terrifying and infectious, Nicholson has taken on a wide array of roles that span multiple genres.

Nicholson continued to deliver great performances decade after decade for nearly 40 years before unofficially retiring in the 2010s (he says he wouldn't call it retirement, but he hasn't been in a movie in about a decade now), and this list of Jack Nicholson movies chronicles some of his very best work.
