Christmas Card Message Tips

Before you write each card, think about the person you're writing to. In addition to spreading the joy of the Christmas season, a heart-felt personalized Christmas message will make the recipient feel appreciated and special. Which really is what the Christmas season is about!

For close family or friends, take the time to compose a message that specifically mentions something you know they've experienced during the year or something that is coming up in the new year. This could be to do with their family, work promotions, holidays they've taken or will take etc.

For a client, business associate, or more distant relative, you may want to write a more formal Christmas card message wishing them a joyous Christmas season. You may also like to thank a client for their continued custom over the past year.

Add a Christmas quote or funny message if appropriate to your Christmas wishes to help share the joy of the holiday season.

Make sure you send out your Christmas cards in the first week of December (and no later than the second week). Don't forget to put your return address on the envelope in case the recipient would like to send a card back to you.
