Get creative with your video.

Although some of the best Christmas videos are simple greetings, there’s nothing wrong with getting a little creative. Try something new for this year’s video, like filming the family opening their presents or having everyone sing a few Christmas carols for loved ones who live far away. You might even film your whole Christmas Day and edit it with Vimeo Create to create a Merry Christmas wishes short video that showcases your favorite highlights.Focus on personal instead of professional.

A family Merry Christmas wishes video should feel warm, like home. Try to avoid making it too “perfect” and movie-like, and instead let your personality shine through. There’s no need to edit out mistakes or bloopers unless you find it necessary (your family will probably love them!). Whatever you do want to edit, you can use Vimeo to do it. Trim videos, cut clips, and make everything come together with colors, filters, text, and more.

If you’re making a Christmas video for your business to share with customers, you can still get personal. Share clips of your staff enjoying holiday activities, tell your brand’s story as it relates to Christmas, and personally thank your customers for sticking around during the holiday season.

Make your message loud and clear.

Whether you’re sending season’s greetings to loved ones from a distance or spreading holiday cheer to clients, make sure your message comes across in your video. You can add holiday music to your video to set the mood and add text at the end with your holiday message. Use your images and video clips to tell the story the whole way through.
