101 Christmas Card Messages

Personal, handwritten Christmas messages really show that you’re thinking of the receiver, and bring extra warmth to your Christmas cards and gifts. But when it comes time to send Christmas wishes, a lot of us draw a blank. No matter how special the folks on your list are, the pressure to come up with the right words can leave the most eloquent wordsmiths at a loss.

The holiday season ushers in a flurry of social events, visits from family and friends, and shopping. When you tackle that stack of cards to send out, a little help composing your Christmas wishes is a welcome time and energy saver. A list of Christmas card messages for the folks you appreciate all year long can give you Christmas greetings to use just as they are, or change up a bit to be a little more personal. 

Gifts are our business, so we’d be slacking if we didn’t pitch in this time of year to share some Christmas card messages with our busy readers. So if you’re already stressing over what to write on a Christmas card, you’ve come to the right place. Browse through our list of Christmas wishes to brighten up your holiday cards, gifts, and flowers.

Show your bestie, a favorite teacher, or the customer who made your year how special they are with a plant or bouquet.
