Holiday Emails to Send to Your Employees

By | Newsletter Academy Mail Designer 365 EN

As a business owner, the holiday season is important. Not only do you need to come up with ideas to celebrate with your customers, thinking of holiday emails to send your employees can also be challenging.

Sending your staff a holiday email spreads positivity and is a great way of boosting morale during the busy holiday season. Here are 4 examples of holiday emails to send to your employees this December…

Holiday greetings

We’ll start things off with a simple holiday greeting. This is the easiest of the holiday emails to send your employees and you can make it totally your own.

Usually with these types of emails, less is more. Choose a simple festive motif to use as the basis of your design and then your own personalised message.

A festive feature image and a personalised greeting are all you need for this simple holiday email to send to your employees.

What to write in the message?

It’s totally up to you what you want to say to your staff in your holiday greeting. However, it can sometimes be difficult to come up with the words. Here are a few ideas you could use as inspiration:

  • Thank your employees: The holiday season is your opportunity to say thank you to staff for a year of hard work and dedication.
  • Look towards the New Year: Inspire your employees by setting out some of your goals for the coming year.
  • Be lighthearted: Don’t be afraid to throw in a few festive puns or a joke every now and again – it is the holidays after all!
  • Encourage them to take a break: Your employees have been working hard all year. Encourage them to relax and enjoy the downtime with family and friends.
  • Wish them all the best: Simple and straightforward, yet super meaningful and effective. Wish your employees a happy holiday season and all the best for the New Year.

Holiday events

Many businesses hold special events around the holidays to celebrate with staff. Another important contender on the list of holiday emails to send your employees is the festive event invitation.

Use email to spread the word of your special event. Remember to include all the most important information like: when, where, what time, what’s involved, etc. so that all your employees are well informed.

Use email to send your employees a stylish invite to your end of year celebrations.

Yearly roundup

December is a great time to look back on the past year and see what you’ve achieved. In particular, this is a great motivator for your employees to firstly make them proud of their work and also help get them ready for the new year.

Think about all the exciting things your business has accomplished this year and compile them into a yearly roundup email. This could be anything from new products, awards, business milestones, or impressive sales stats.

Sharing this type of information with your team gives everyone a reason to celebrate and is another good way to bring all your employees together.

A yearly roundup email is a great way to get everyone feeling proud of their achievements over the last year.

Festive newsletter

The holidays can be a busy time and everyone has a lot going on. Make your employees’ lives easier by sending out a festive newsletter with all the key information they will need for the coming weeks.

In essence, you can treat your festive newsletter as a combination of all the ideas for holiday emails to send your employees.

Things you may wish to include:

  • A holiday greeting
  • Information about office opening hours during the holidays
  • Reminders of holiday events
  • Good news from the year
  • Ideas for fun activities to take part in over the holidays
  • Festive tips or recipes
  • A team photo to round off the year

The key to a good newsletter is a clear layout. Divide your content into sections with clear headlines to make it easier for busy employees to skim read and pick out the basics.

Don’t forget to use festive colors and images to get everyone in the holiday spirit!

A festive newsletter is a great way to keep everyone in the loop about what’s going on over the holiday period.
