Types of Christmas card messages
The note you put in a Christmas card depends greatly on the type of card you’re making. The message you put in a holiday card to a friend from school will be completely different than one that’s addressed to a person who belongs to your place of worship. General Christmas card messages are ideal if you’re printing multiple copies of one photo card you’re making. Classic Christmas card messages like, “Happy Holidays from the Soandso family,” also work well for a mass appeal. If you’ve got a lot on your plate, Christmas card messages from 2021 will do in a pinch.
Here’s a few other types of Christmas card messages you might consider for this holiday season.
Religious Christmas card messages
If your faith is important to you and your family, then sending a religious Christmas card is a great way to share a blessed message. Consider a favorite passage that captures the spirit of Christmas. Here’s a few options to use or modify for your card:
- May God bless you and let this Christmas season bring comfort and happiness to you and your loved ones.
- May God’s blessings be yours this Christmas.
- Hosanna and blessings to us all as we remember the birth of our Lord and savior. Happy Holidays.
- Rejoice in the birth of our Lord and Savior. May the blessings of Christ be upon you and your loved ones this season and into the New Year.
Funny Christmas card messages
Should you always look for the humor in every moment of your life, funny Christmas card messages are a perfect option to consider.
- Knock, knock! Who’s there? Mary. Mary who? Mary Christmas!
- What goes “Oh, oh, oh”? Santa walking backwards
- Get out the stretchy pants! Christmas is here!
- “You know you’re getting old when Santa starts looking younger.” – Robert Paul
- Christmas is a time for remembering family and trying to guess everyone’s sizes! Merry Christmas from our family to yours.
Also, think about some favorite movie quotes from classics like Elf, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story or Bad Santa. They might fit perfectly in your humorous holiday card.
Christmas greetings for family
With the handy Motif photo app, making customizable holiday cards for just about everyone is easy. Sure, telling your family members how much you appreciate them during the holidays is easy enough, but taking the time to make a personalized card complete with your photos can really say so much more. It’s something they might even save as a memento or keepsake.
- Thank you for sharing the holiday season with me and making it more special for me. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, my dear family.
- Merry Christmas to my sister! All the wonderful memories we’ve shared together still fill my heart with happiness.
- There is no greater gift this holiday season than spending time with family around the Christmas tree.
- What can be better than opening presents, eating food and singing Christmas music? Doing all of them with family like you!
Romantic Christmas card messages
Again, Motif lets you easily create custom Christmas cards to that special someone in your life. The holidays can be stressful and a strategically worded Christmas card delivered right in the middle of it all can certainly bring calm to the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Be sure to track down some mistletoe for the icing on that cake. Here’s a couple ideas to use or give you some inspiration for your own.
- Merry Christmas my love. Sending all my love to you on this special occasion.
- Your love is the best Christmas gift for me. Merry Christmas, sweetheart.
- You’re still my favorite gift.
- You’re at the top of my Christmas wish list.
- I’m so lucky that I have you to meet under the mistletoe.
- Merry Christmas to the reason I feel merry and bright every day. I love you.
- You’re all the present I need.
Christmas wishes to your boss and colleagues
It’s always a good idea to send a card to your boss and close work colleagues. They’re often the people you spend the most time with throughout the year. If you’re lucky enough to consider colleagues friends, there’s no better reason to wish them a happy holiday season.
- Our team wouldn’t be the same without you. Merry Christmas!
- Happy holidays to a terrific mentor—looking forward to doing great work together in the New Year.
- I like seeing you at work– you add a bit of happiness to the place. Happy Holidays!
- Our team wouldn’t be the same without you. Merry Christmas!
- I definitely didn’t want this holiday season to pass by without me wishing you a Merry Christmas! P.S. I’m happy we’re on the same team!
