As sweater weather fast approaches, it’s easy to get caught up in the charm of the holiday season. Mushy Christmas adverts on the telly, the possibility of snowfall, and the promise of new gifts and festivities to come. It’s almost enough to distract you from the worst part of Christmas: figuring out what to write on a Christmas card.
Picture this: you’ve made your list, you’ve checked it twice, you’ve bought all the presents for those who were nice. You picked out the very best cards from the store, while visions of sugarplums and Christmas songs danced in your head. But now, as you look at all that empty space… the inspiration is gone and intimidation sets in. What on Earth should you say?
Well, fear not! Bags of Love has done all the hard work for you. We’ve got tons of ideas for what to write in a Christmas card, whether the recipient is your partner, your boss, or your family.
