Tis the season to be jolly – but wait – how are you going to sign the Christmas card with appropriate Christmas wishes for colleagues that you might not know all that well? At Collection Pot we are lucky enough to see all sorts of workplace collections, and Christmas parties, gifts and celebrations make up a big part of that. We’ve compiled some great ways to pass on Christmas wishes for colleagues that feel normal and not too cheesy during this special time of year.
“I Hope Santa rewards your very nice work on (Project Name) this year, (Colleague name)! Great job.”
“Thank you for another great year (Colleague name), it’s been a success. Especially working on (Project Name.) Here’s to another great year!”
“Have you been naughty or nice this year? Well, your work on (Project) was undoubtedly the success of the year! But your habit of (Insert funny habit – eg not making the tea, not bringing in biscuits) might sway Santa to put you on the naughty list! Just joking. Thanks for everything this year (Colleague name).”
“Your hard work this year hasn’t gone unnoticed! Wishing you a great Christmas break – you’ve earned it!
“It’s been another great year working with you (Name).”
“With love to you and your family this holiday season.”
“I can’t believe it’s been a year since I wrote you a Christmas card! Time flies when you’re having fun. Thanks for your support on (Project Name).”
“Wishing you a peaceful and enjoyable break this season, (Colleague name).”
“It’s the most wonderful time of the year (no, not bonus time!) Have a great Christmas break, (colleague name).”
“Wishing you and your family a healthy and happy Christmas and a joy-filled new year.”
There are also a few ways you can send happy holidays wishes in our new, post-pandemic world!
– Slack channels or other employee message boards work well for companywide greetings, but also allow you to single out individuals and personally thank them. “Hi (NAME), just reaching you on here as I am not sending cards but wanted to wish you a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year.”
– WhatsApp groups or working Facebook groups also allow you to give the gift that keeps on giving – a gif. This is best to ensure no one is missed from your greetings and allows you to reduce the words down to none! The dancing grinch says it all.
– Christmas cards to their home – If your colleagues are working from home, this now requires some forward planning. Your HR team might not want to give out personal data, so why not see if you can arrange a card collection at the office, or a plan to exchange at the Christmas party instead?
– Or instead of one-on-one greetings and cards, you could try organising a companywide collection for a charity or cause. Instead of each person buying cards, why not create a companywide collection to give to a charity of choice using Collection Pot?
So, there you are, a huge range of ways to give Christmas wishes for colleagues that you can personalise and make your own. Keep your eyes peeled for our post on the best present ideas for colleagues as well – unwrapping the perfect gift during the Christmas season is always going to be the way to win the day!
