It’s that time of year! The holi­day sea­sons are approa­ching, and regard­less of which holi­day you and your cli­ents cele­bra­te, it is a nice idea to send season’s gree­tings to cus­to­mers, cli­ents, employees, donors, and whoever else con­tri­bu­tes to making your com­pa­ny suc­cess­ful. Whe­ther you send your holi­day messages by mail or by email, it is important to sound pro­fes­sio­nal and joy­ful. This arti­cle will intro­du­ce some com­mon phra­ses that are used to send holi­day messages. You will learn stan­dard and simp­le gree­tings as well as more busi­ness spe­ci­fic messages.

Standard Messages

If you want to send a simp­le gree­ting, here are some popu­lar stan­dard phra­ses to use. Keep in mind, “Mer­ry Christ­mas” has a reli­gious affi­lia­ti­on, so you may want to use “Hap­py Holi­days” or “Season’s Gree­tings” to send a non-deno­mi­na­tio­nal mes­sa­ge.

  • Mer­ry Christ­mas and a Hap­py New Year.
  • Mer­ry Christ­mas and Best Wis­hes for a Hap­py New Year.
  • Hap­py Holi­days!
  • Season’s Gree­tings!
  • Season’s Gree­tings from all of us at [your com­pa­ny name]!
  • War­mest thoughts and best wis­hes for a won­der­ful Holi­day and a Hap­py New Year!
  • Here’s to a hap­py and healt­hy 2018 for you and yours!
  • Peace, love and hap­pi­ness to all!

Business Oriented Messages: Customers, clients, donors

Here are some phra­ses to thank cus­to­mers, cli­ents, and donors for their coope­ra­ti­on and to wish them a joy­ful holi­day sea­son. Remem­ber, do not use a holi­day card as a sales act, but as a plea­sant remin­der to cus­to­mers you want to keep in the upco­m­ing year. So that the card does not seem mass pro­du­ced, you can add a per­so­na­li­zed mes­sa­ge with names or spe­ci­fic suc­cess­ful moments from the pre­vious year.

  • With 2017 com­ing to a clo­se, we wan­ted to reach out and send our best wis­hes to you and yours! It has been a plea­su­re get­ting to know you and your orga­niz­a­ti­on this year. May 2018 be your best year yet!
  • With thanks for our coope­ra­ti­on this year, we wish you a Hap­py Holi­day Sea­son and look for­ward to con­ti­nuing our joint suc­cess in the New Year.
  • Here’s to a pro­spe­rous 2018! We appre­cia­te your sup­port and look for­ward to future col­la­bo­ra­ti­ons!
  • As ano­t­her year comes to an end, we wan­ted to say thank you and wish you all the best.
  • We wan­ted to say thank you for sup­por­ting our cau­se and look for­ward to your con­ti­nued backing in 2018. All the best to you and yours!
  • All of us at [your com­pa­ny name] join in sen­ding you best wis­hes for a pro­spe­rous New Year.
  • As we at [your com­pa­ny name] look back at 2017, we remem­ber our faith­ful customers/donors with sin­ce­re gra­ti­tu­de. Customers/donors like you.

Business Oriented Messages: Employees

It’s a nice sen­ti­ment to send your employees or tho­se you work clo­se­ly with a per­so­na­li­zed holi­day card. It shows you are thin­king of them and appre­cia­te the hard work they have done. Again, try to avoid gene­ra­liz­a­ti­ons and add a per­so­nal mes­sa­ge to your card.

  • With 2017 com­ing to an end, I wan­ted to take this time to say thank you for all your hard work. Sen­ding you warm Season’s Gree­tings and a very Hap­py New Year to you and yours!
  • In warm appre­cia­ti­on, we wish you Hap­py Holi­days and a Hap­py New Year!
  • Thank you for your gre­at team­work and com­mit­ment this past year!

If you want to give a holi­day bonus, here’s an examp­le mes­sa­ge to inclu­de.

  • Thanks for all that you do! Here’s a litt­le token of our appre­cia­ti­on for your gre­at work and dedi­ca­ti­on.
