Perfect Office Christmas Cards
There's only 7 weekends left until Christmas! It is often a mad dash in the last few weeks before the holiday season begins to get all the jobs on your Christmas to-do list ticked off.
Apart from sorting out your recipient list and finding impressive holiday gifts for every important and deserving associate, client and staff member, getting the right corporate Christmas card should be top of your list, too.
What's the best Christmas present for work colleagues?
Christmas is a wonderful time of year to thank all those who have worked with you as a team to achieve your company’s annual goals. Share a few words of appreciation with those who supported your business during a tough 2020 with its many ups and downs. Sending a genuine acknowledgement to those involved in helping your business adapt to a changing business world is crucial.

Let us give you some helpful advice on how to impress those important to you and show gratitude along the way—with a simple gift card.
Here are some ideas for how to make corporate Christmas gift cards more memorable.
1. Choose an eye-catching and unique design
Remember your brand and stick with your colour palette. Include your logo at the bottom but remember that the best company Christmas card designs are not overly fussy. Simple goes a long way and, especially at Christmas time, it’s all about the message you want to share.
There are hundreds of free Christmas gift card templates available online for inspiration. Brainstorm with your team and get some design ideas to build upon, but make sure to personalise it with your very own twist. An online Christmas gift card printable can easily be tweaked to make a unique card to suit your company.
A minimalistic gift card cover design can highlight your personal Christmas card message. You can find examples online for the best cover words and Christmas greetings to suit your company’s corporate branded gift card style.
Here are some gift card message ideas to get you started:
- It has been an honour and pleasure to work with you this year. We wish you a relaxing holiday and a busy new year.
- It is simply a joy doing business with you.
- May the beauty of the holiday season fill you with joy and love. Merry Christmas.
- Thank you so much for a productive year! We hope to continue our shared success into the New Year.
- Happy holidays from the team at (enter logo here)
- Sending the warmest Christmas greetings from our company to yours.
- Our team wishes you a wonderful holiday and a prosperous new year. Merry Christmas!
Your Christmas gift card saying can be simple, but still express how much you value your business relationship.
2. Personalise your Christmas message with empowering affirmations
The personal touch of a unique and heartfelt message in each Christmas gift card can add so much more value to your staff Christmas gifts. Every person loves to feel appreciated. A personal Christmas gift card message ensures they feel noticed and acknowledged. Thank your employees with a Christmas message such as, "Your work this year has been amazing! Enjoy your well-earned Christmas break."
We know it’s a busy time of year. An adaptable and relevant business Christmas card message makes your corporate gifting easier. It is important to find the right message that you can use on all your corporate gift cards that will make every single one of your employees and clients feel special. The best gift card messages will sound as though you are talking directly to each recipient. For a classic Christmas card message that is simple and meaningful, try, "This holiday season, we would like to express our sincere appreciation for your support. We wish you every happiness for the holidays.”
A simple, formal business Christmas card message like, "We wish you and your loved ones happiness and peace this festive season" goes a long way. You can add an extra appreciative note inside your gift card. For example, "We offer our sincere thanks for your loyalty and goodwill throughout 2020.” It might be appropriate to include a message acknowledging your ongoing business relationship, such as, “We look forward to continuing our partnership in the New Year.”
A casual Christmas message to thank customers for their loyalty throughout a difficult year might include a more personal greeting, such as, "As Christmas approaches, we want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support throughout the year. We wish you and your family a wonderful festive season.”
3. Go for Corporate branding on gift cards
Winning a premiership with a team rather than as a solo player often feels so much better when it is time to celebrate. Knowing you've achieved big things in 2020 and have met your milestone goals as a business team feels wonderful, especially when you can clink your glasses together and have a celebratory Christmas drink as a group.
Receiving a Christmas card that's personalised with your employer’s logo, colours and a personal message always enhances the feeling of satisfaction for a job well done. When it comes to the end of year staff party, it’s great to know you are part of team of like-minded, hard-working, goal-driven people that enjoys every challenge along the way.
If your regular end of year party has had to be cancelled due to travel restrictions or social distancing, you can still celebrate with a virtual office party. Organise to have gourmet food and wine hampers delivered direct to your staff and clients with personalised gift cards. Then schedule an evening to connect via Zoom to celebrate together as a team.
