Writing Christmas Card Messages You Can Be Proud Of

Writing great Christmas card messages

Here at Chocablock, we’ve been Christmas Card senders from way back. Although the artform of letter writing is dying (a modern tragedy) it’s still possible to make an impact at Christmas time. Think about what a Christmas card says to the person who receives it – that somebody is thinking of you, that somebody thinks you’re relationship has worth and needs to be celebrated. It doesn’t matter if you’re writing Christmas cards for family members or for clients, customers and colleagues. The value of a well worded Christmas card is undeniable.

Christmas cards are always a great way to stay in touch with friends, relatives, acquaintances, and loved-ones as the year comes to a close. While writing a thoughtful message sounds simple, many of us have trouble figuring out what to write. Whether sending electronically or by mail, consider these points:

“But I’m a terrible writer”

Just like we shouldn’t let truth get in the way of a good story, you shouldn’t let a lack of poetic prose get in the way of a good Christmas card. Nobody expects you to have suddenly discovered a talent you never knew you had, but using a greeting cards existing writing and then just signing your name underneath with a “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!” just won’t cut it.

Knowing where to start

The best place to start writing a Christmas card is to think why you are thinking about this person at Christmas time. If it’s someone you don’t see often, or have lost touch with, let them know you still think of them often and wish them well. You can bring up a highlight from the last time you saw them, how much you enjoyed it and that it’s been too long since.

Share a little

In many cases, it may have been a full year since you last spoke to somebody so it makes sense to play a little catchup in your Christmas card message. Share a few of the year’s finer moments such as your child graduating, or a holiday that you savoured or perhaps a business difficulty that you overcame. Sharing in its most basic sense makes us vulnerable, and when we’re vulnerable, we’re really quite likable.

Have your own cards designed and include a gift
