4 Creative Ways to Make Video Greetings that Send Holiday Cheer

December 17, 2012 / By

You know the routine. You go out, buy dozens of cards, sit down and write a message in each, and cross your fingers they get delivered in time. This year, spice up the routine with a video greeting card!

Below are 4 inspirational ways you can use video to communicate and share your message with friends and family all over the world.

1. Wish You Were Here

In this video, the Brushwood family simply set up a camera and filmed themselves making holiday treats from their warm and cozy kitchen. They then speed up the video time-lapse) and end with a big thank you and “Happy Holidays” message to everyone on their list.

2. Run Down of the Year

For the last 4 years, the Ramos family has put together a video of the year’s events such as achievements, vacations and family get-togethers. They fill in the silence with a piece of holiday music to bring it all together. This is a great way to quickly update everyone you don’t get to see as much as you’d like.

3. Musical

The Goodwin family really went all out by directing their own musical. Clearly, this was a lot of fun! You don’t need to be a video whizz to produce videos like this, you just need a great imagination and a simple video editing tool like WeVideo.

4. Good ‘Ol’ Family Fun

We may not all have access to the beach or a massive tree, but the Exum family had fun mixing together video, music, and images to show a unique twist on how their family lights up the tree.

With the great examples above, you must be ready to try this yourself.

  • Grab a load of old photos and blend them together with some great music.
  • Film yourself just talking for 5-10 minutes about the year, what you’ve accomplished and how you wish you could be with everybody.
  • If you have family or friends serving in the military that couldn’t make it home, record a greeting letting them know you love them and you appreciate all they are doing for our country.
