What to Write in Your Christmas Card?

Writer’s block isn’t just something for people wearing turtlenecks, sat in Starbucks with a Macbook writing their debut novel (trust us, you should have seen how long it took us to write that sentence). So, you’ve spent ages finding the perfect Christmas card for that special someone, and you have all these feelings you want to express...but...when confronted with that blank page...what on earth do you write? Have no fear, help is at hand! We’ve put together a list of festive message ideas for all the people in your life, making sure that you’ll know exactly how to say how much they mean to you this Christmas.

Romantic Things to Write in Your Christmas Card

If you’re looking to express your undying adoration for your husbandfiance, bae, sweetheart, boo, baby doll, ball and chain, main squeeze or cat this Christmas, then look no further. We’ve compiled a list of romantic sweet nothings you can write in their card this year and sweep them off their feet.

  • Merry Christmas, I love you more and more every year!

  • Screw the mistletoe, you can kiss me anytime you like!

  • You are the egg to my nog, and I love you. Merry Christmas!

  • There is no present under the tree that’s better than waking up and seeing you next to me every day.

Heartfelt Things to Write in Your Christmas Card

Whether you’re writing a card for your family or your friends, Christmas is an amazing opportunity to tell them exactly how you feel, and just how important they are to you. especially when you might not have been able to see them last year (thanks to a much less festive word starting with C). Say something heartfelt and meaningful, and put a huge smile on their face. Go on, feel all the feels.

  • You can’t choose your family, but even if you could, I’d still choose you!

  • Merry Christmas! Mum, thank you for everything you’ve done for me during the past year and beyond.

  • We’ve shared so many amazing memories together, and I never want to spend a Christmas apart again. Have a wonderful day!

  • Whether we’re together or apart at Christmas, you’re always in my thoughts and in my heart.

  • Christmas isn’t a day, it’s a feeling. I am so lucky to have you in my life, I love you Dad!

  • Every snowflake is unique, and you are just as special and magical to me. Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
