When we think of Christmas cards, we don’t always think of sending or giving them to people so closely intertwined in our lives. To some people, a Christmas card is a chance to reach out to your more distant loved ones, and to tell them everything they missed during the year. Some people even include long letters about the year’s highlights in their mailed Christmas cards.
However, at their root, Christmas cards are a way to show people you care. Every holiday is special, and a greeting card is a way to tell people you were thinking of them during a busy time of year.
Why wouldn’t you want to tell your boyfriend you were thinking of him during the busiest time of year? Taking the time to send your boyfriend a card during the holiday season is the perfect way to show how much he means to you.
Showing your boyfriend you care is more than an easy way to win brownie points. It’s also proven that couples who continue to make gestures or give small gifts throughout their entire relationship really strengthen their bond. Read more here.
What’s more, a card is a permanent and lasting reminder of your love. Words and gestures are important – no one could ever deny that. But a reminder that you can look back at whenever you want? That is another invaluable experience you can give your boyfriend.
You might also find yourself thinking something along the lines of, “I’m already giving a gift to my boyfriend this Christmas, so a card isn’t important on top of that.” But as the saying goes, the more the merrier, and Christmas is the most important time of year for merriment. Use the card as the cherry on top of your present. Your boyfriend is sure to appreciate the extra gesture!

Now you know the importance of giving your boyfriend a Christmas card, and how it will show how much you truly care. However, a digital card can be an even more meaningful take on a Christmas card for your boyfriend.
We hate to say it, but the reality is that presents and gifts can be lost or broken. Over time, we might not need them anymore, and when it’s time for spring cleaning we’ll donate them to another life. Physical cards can be nice because they take up less space, so they’re easy to store.
Still, even a physical card can be lost, or a large collection of them can end up taking a lot of space as it grows! One perk of a digital card is that it will live in your email forever, taking up virtually no space. It won’t be easily lost, so your boyfriend can go back and look at it for years to come.
Since it’s really easy to keep track of a digital Christmas card for your boyfriend, it will be easier to maintain the collection over time. As you celebrate many anniversaries and Christmases together, his collection will grow, and he can look back fondly at all the digital Christmas cards you sent through the years.
Bells and Wishes has an amazing, diverse collection of Christmas cards for you to choose from. That’s another perk of digital Christmas cards – variety.
How many times have you found yourself scouring over your local convenience store’s card collection, only to find that none of the cards really capture the love you share, and the meaning behind your relationship?
The vast collection of digital Christmas cards we offer at Bells and Wishes just can’t be beat. Just browse the options and see for yourself how easy it is to find the perfect imagery for your relationship with your boyfriend.
What’s more, with a digital Christmas card, you are the one that customizes the text. Your card will be that much more meaningful without cheesy stock sayings, and with words that come right from your heart.
A Christmas card is the perfect gesture to express how you feel about your boyfriend, and a digital Christmas card is the way to take that gesture to the next level.

You might be apprehensive about making your own Christmas card to give your boyfriend. What photos should I use? What should I write inside? The options might seem overwhelming if you’re used to everything laid out for you.
However, as you know, a digital Christmas card creates a special opportunity to customize your card to reflect the love and feelings you share with your boyfriend. The first step is choosing a photo for your boyfriend’s card.
Think back on the love and laughter you have shared together. Are there any common themes? Maybe some inside jokes? These are all considerations you might include in your digital holiday card.
What many people don’t first realize about the cards on Bells and Wishes is that creators aren’t limited exclusively to photos. That’s right – when you’re making your Christmas card for your boyfriend, you can include a photo, GIF or video.
Using a GIF or video is another way to make your digital Christmas card stand out from the generic holiday cards available in stores. There are plenty of hilarious, or even adorable, GIF options out in the world, and using one is the perfect way to create a totally unique card your boyfriend will never see anywhere else.
You also have the option to use a video. It goes without saying that there are plenty of gorgeous, Christmas-themed videos out there that you can use to make a wholesome and memorable card.
However, don’t be afraid to take it one step further. When you’re making your card, why not include a video of the two of you together? There are so many options for home videos too. You can use a video from any random day, or you can make a point to select a video from a special and meaningful occasion. No matter your choice, the personalized touch is something your boyfriend will love and cherish for a long time to come.
Those are just some ideas for you to include in your digital Christmas card. Our library has plenty of options for any creator, or you can use content that you find online.
Messages to Write in a Christmas Card for Your Boyfriend
The media side of the card is only half the story. You still have to write the message! You might even consider the message the most important part of your digital Christmas card. When you write from your heart about how you feel, and what your boyfriend means to you, then you’ll surely get the most beautiful and sincere card possible. That is what your boyfriend will really want this holiday season too.
However, if you’re used to picking cards that say the words for you, it might be difficult for you to know where to start. Or maybe you don’t consider yourself much of a writer. As long as you are honest, your card will be a wonderful gesture, but we put together some options to help jog your creative juices.
The first option is to talk about how you met. When you’re celebrating a special holiday together, it’s only natural to look back at how far you’ve come. Usually remembering how you met goes hand in hand with that.
In the same vein, you can write about some of the meaningful memories you shared. You can include memories that you know both of you cherish as a couple, but you can also include some of your personal favorites. Your boyfriend will love hearing about some times that were special to you, and they will likely become special to him too.
Going even further off of that, why not talk about some of your favorite Christmas memories with your boyfriend? Like we said, it’s the perfect opportunity to reflect on the time you have shared together. And if you’re looking back on memories, why not remember your Christmases together? Your boyfriend will love the walk down memory lane.
Another time period to look back on is the past year. Since Christmas is at the end of the year, it’s the perfect time for you to think about everything you accomplished together in the past year, or all the time you spent together in the past year. If you do this every year, you will have a lovely annual recap of all your favorite memories.
As you think back on the year you shared, it’s only natural to look ahead too. With the new year right around the corner, don’t be afraid to write about your hopes, dreams or goals for the next year. It can be something as small as going to a new restaurant or date night spot together, or if you have a bigger milestone coming up, you can talk about how excited you are for you next chapter.
Whether or not you have plans to take the next step soon, it might be a good idea to say how excited you are for the future together. If you have been together for a long time and have talked about the life you want to continue sharing together, the holiday season is the perfect time to reflect on that again. Love for friends and family is in the air, and love for your boyfriend can be in the air too!
As you can see, there are many benefits to a digital Christmas card, especially for one of the most special people in your life – your boyfriend. It couldn’t be easier to create a personalized, meaningful card to give to your boyfriend this holiday season, so don’t wait to get started!
