Making holiday card writing meaningful and memorable

Sending and receiving holiday cards is such a cherished tradition. Taking the time to express a heartfelt wish in a card is an act of caring that reminds the recipient of their special place in our lives.

A wonderful way to connect with loved ones, writing holiday cards can also create memorable moments of togetherness at home. All you need is a little advance planning to make this a fun and festive activity for the whole family.

Begin by organizing different stations with everything you’ll need: the cards and envelopes, stamps and labels, a list of addresses, pens and markers, and any embellishments you’d like to add. You can designate roles — card writer, addresser, stamper and stuffer, list-checker, etc. — to get everyone involved.

To create a festive scene, put on your favorite holiday music or movies, and have a mix of no-fuss seasonal snacks and drinks on hand.

When it comes to signing each card, remember even a few, hand-written words of kindness, love and appreciation can create a moment of heartwarming connection with the recipient. To personalize even more, consider including a family photo or short letter sharing news of the year (download our free newsletter template to get you started), adding a touch of humor by writing from the perspective of the family pet or baby, or decorating each envelope with baker’s twine and a cute accent.
