In today’s world which is dominated by digital communication, it is heart-warming to see the handwritten Christmas Card is still going strong. The Christmas card still holds a special charm that puts a smile on our face as we open the envelope and discover well wishes inside.
For those of you who appreciate the finer things in life, the art of penning a unique festive message to each loved one or acquaintance is a cherished yearly tradition that will never be broken.
However, when it comes to it, writer’s block can leave you wondering what to write. In this article, inspired by the art of writing, we will offer a selection of Christmas card messages that are perfect for everyone on your Christmas card list.
How to select the perfect Christmas Card
Christmas cards are available in a huge range of shapes, sizes, and designs. There is so much choice out there that it can often be overwhelming. Do you go for an elegant watercolour design, or something humorous?
There is no set answer here, but we would recommend choosing Christmas cards that express your personality and style. When opening a card first impressions matter and it is easy to tell when thought and effort has gone in to selecting a card and penning the message within it.
If you choose to handwrite your message, then selecting a card made from premium materials is recommended. The paper will take high quality ink well and display your handwritten note as beautifully as you intended. If you love using fountain pens, ensure that your chosen Christmas cards are fountain pen friendly, as all of ours are. Find out how to choose the correct salutation and ending for your Christmas card in this article that we have previously written.
Luxury Christmas cards usually feature a stunning unique design crafted by artists to make your card standout amongst the others on the mantlepiece. It’s unlikely that someone will have sent the same card as you!
Finally, as with personalised stationery, personalised Christmas cards are also available, allowing you to make this year’s card that extra bit special.
Christmas card message inspiration
There is nothing more frustrating than sitting in front of a blank card and struggling to come up with something to write.

This happens to everyone at one time or another.
To help you out, we have created Christmas card message options for every type of person on your Christmas card list.
Christmas card messages for friends and family.
When writing to the people who are closest to you, your message should be warm and friendly with a sprinkle of intimacy where appropriate. We’d recommend messages like:
