Adapt the season’s spirit to your brand’s style and make a newsletter that tells all with a beautiful image and a button that stands out. Voila! Jolly simple and effective!

4. The all-in-one approach

There is no need to create several Christmas newsletters for your holiday campaign. Play smart by “packing” all your festive goodies in one email and make them shines with simple copy and beautiful images with clickable links.

5. FOMO approach

Yes, it’s gold and yes the whole email screams “luxury”. But what really does the trick here is the last order dates at the bottom of the page. This simple yet powerful addition to your Christmas email template can create a sense of urgency and makes your subscribers start shopping before it’s too late!

6. Prestigious approach

Rid of the red-green-gold triptych color palette, the unlikely Christmas newsletter template colors are unexpectedly classy and cozy.

Not-at-all Grinchy, as one could expect! Instead, this darker-tone selection endows the campaign with a touch of prestige and classiness.

We are in love with this email newsletter design, can you not tell?

7. Nostalgic approach

Nostalgia marketing has been working its magic across generations. 

Up until quite recently, every brand was looking for the marketing-forward Christmas newsletter template.

Now, more and more companies are looking for inspiration in their target audience’s childhood years!

We really like the photo above – one we’d expect to see that in an Urban Outfitters’ email or another vintage-lover-friendly brand!

Always with a matching font!

8. Packaging approach

With a growing percentage of design-savvy and packaging-sensitive consumers,

why not build on your amazing, special edition, limited Christmas packaging?

Use an image of your packaging options as a background for your single-image newsletter design.

Couple it with additional information, but …stylishly:

“The big box for Mum, the small box for Dad, and the one with the greetings for sis.

Can you make sure you add more bells, please? It should make its proper noise!

Your gifts this year will be a thing!

Just drop by any day from 9-9 and browse our wide selection,

over hot, large, creamy cocoa cups!
