What's in the custom letter?


When writing a message to your friends and family, first and foremost, speak from the heart. Here are some other great tips from Hallmark when choosing what to write:

1. It’s a big deal when family or friends are celebrating their first Christmas as a married couple, in a new house, with a new baby or any other exciting holiday firsts. Be sure to call it out in your personal message to them.

2. Miss-you message not required. If not being together for Christmas is a sore subject, then skip it and focus your message around love, gratitude or a warm holiday wish instead.

3. If you’re sending the package to people or family you know who are facing a difficult time, you may wish to choose quieter language, with more focus on peace and hope, as opposed to “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas” wishes.\

4. One Hallmark writer likes to keep it simple by closing with “Love,” for everyone on her list, no matter how close the relationship is. She just figures, if ever there was a season to be all about the love, Christmas is it.


Your own custom letter, directly to your staff, will have a profound impact, especially during this time.

We've created some sample templates you can peruse and invite you to change the wording as you see fit.



Say thank you to staff during this unprecedented year, wish them a Merry Christmas or give them a gift just because. There's so many reasons to say THANK YOU!
