Ideas for words to put in a Christmas greeting card

With Promaxx’s printable greetings cards you are able to design personalised Christmas cards for family, friends, acquaintances and business contacts. You can either create one design and print many, or make each one unique. But how do you decide what wording to include inside? There are a wealth of places to look for inspiration – here’s a few ideas.

A line from a traditional carol

Nothing makes us feel more like Christmas than the sound of carols being sung. And there are many lines from these traditional songs that sum up the very essence of this happy time of year. So why not pick a verse from your favourite carol as your seasonal message of good will? From Hark! The Herald Angels Sing to God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen- there is a wealth of time-honoured words to choose from. 

Words from a seasonal pop song

If Christmas Carols are a bit too traditional for your taste then you could include a line from one of the many Christmas pop songs that have been released down the years. From Slade’s classic: “Merry Christmas Everybody” to “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday” by Wizzard, there are some real gems out there. Add a bit of glitter to the card for that authentic Christmas glam feel. 

A Christmassy quote – some funny, some wise

Here at Promaxx we love a good quotation and there are plenty of quotes that have a Christmas theme. A quick search on the Internet and you will find the poignant, such as “Christmas is the day that holds all time together” written by Alexander Smith, to funny quips like Bernard Manning’s: “I once bought my kids a set of batteries for Christmas with a note on it saying, toys not included.” 

A message of thanks from your business

For many businesses, a Christmas card is a convenient way to thank customers and suppliers alike for their continued support, as well as send them a seasonal greetings. A personalised Christmas card also enables you to put your own stamp or brand on the card.

Whether you would like to thank customers directly for their business over the past year with wording such as: “A special greeting at Christmas time to thank you for your continued loyalty and support”, or simply leave it unsaid and leave a more generic message is ultimately up to how you feel.
