It’s the time of year again when everyone scrambles to get the best gifts under the Christmas tree and spend time with loved ones. In a digital age where people email gift cards and text heartfelt messages, it seems like physical cards are a lost art.

While writing and sending out Christmas cards takes some time, it’s well worth it. Whether it’s a short message or a long letter, handwritten and delivered cards make people feel special. If you plan on sending cards out to ten people or 100 people, there are many cute, funny and heartwarming messages to choose from. But, if you find yourself sitting in front of your cards puzzled about what to write, you can take some inspiration from your favorite Christmas carols, movies, icons, etc.

Who you are writing to is important to consider as well. If you’re writing to family, friends or a significant other, something more personal or funny may work, like an inside joke. If you are writing for your boss or coworkers, neighbors, clients or your kid’s teachers, something more simple yet professional is a better approach.

Get into the holiday spirit with these Merry Christmas wishes to include on your Christmas cards.
