Christmas card messages

What to write in your Christmas cards

The end of year festivities are often a time to eat, drink and be merry, but they are also the perfect opportunity to warm the hearts of your friends and family, to make up for the winter frost nipping at their noses. Personalised Christmas cards are an easy way to wish your loved ones a happy Christmas and all the best for the new year. Whilst it may be easy to pick out your favourite design for your personalised Christmas cards, it is sometimes more difficult to find inspiration for what to write. Luckily for you, Rosemood is here to make writing your Christmas cards that bit easier with our suggested Christmas card wording ideas. If you are still lacking some inspiration for your Christmas card wording then hit play on that infamous Christmas playlist to get yourself in the Christmas spirit!

What to write in your Christmas cards

Putting pen to paper isn’t always easy, especially seeing as you may be sending out Christmas cards to a wide variety of people. It may seem like a lot of work to adapt your Christmas card message to suit your friends, family and colleagues but often a simple change of the closing line can turn your Christmas cards from heartfelt and sentimental to highly professional. We have created this helpful summary of what to include in your Christmas cards to help you start crafting your perfect Christmas greetings.

  • A simple Christmas greeting. Keep it short and sweet with a simple “Merry Christmas and a happy New Year”.
  • A personalised Christmas card message for close family and friends. Show your loved ones how much you are thinking about them with a heartfelt message specific to the individual or share some of your favourite moments from the year gone by. Your Christmas cards can also be a perfect place to announce some exciting news for the year ahead such as your engagement or pregnancy.
  • For professional Christmas cards: Be sure to use formal titles when addressing your Christmas cards to colleagues, or sending your Christmas cards on behalf of your business. In addition to a simple Christmas card greeting, you can also use your Christmas cards to share your appreciation for the recipient's assistance or custom.
  • Adapt how you sign off your Christmas cards based on the recipient. Use a warm closing phrase for friends and family, such as the simple “lots of love”, but keep it professional for your business Christmas cards with closing messages such as “Kind regards” or a festive “Season’s greetings”.

Keeping your Christmas card messages short and sweet

Christmas card greetings should come from the heart but if you are sending Christmas cards to a whole list of people, then it may be hard for you to keep thinking of new messages, especially if you are writing Christmas cards to people you aren’t very close to. Not to mention that you need to find time in your busy shopping schedule to write your Christmas cards! The easiest way to tackle your pile of Christmas cards is to vary between a few short and sweet Christmas card messages. You can also rely on the fact that “a picture is worth a thousand words” by personalising your very own photo Christmas cards! Otherwise, here are a few short Christmas card greeting examples to get you started.

Wishing you a

very Merry Christmas!

 

With much love at Christmastime, and always.

 

Have yourself a merry little Christmas!

 

Season's greetings from our house to yours.

Tis the season to be jolly!  

Wishing you peace, joy, and love!

 

Hope your Christmas is as wonderful as you are!

 

Have a fun and festive yuletide season!
