Attaching a personal card to your holiday gift gives it that heartfelt touch–and will have friends or family thinking of the sentiment long after they’ve enjoyed your present.

Begin with a holiday greeting: Start off your note with a celebratory holiday message to set the tone.

Share a Christmas memory: Have you shared holiday seasons with this friend or family member before? Do you have any special holiday traditions?
