Christmas Quotes and Sentiments for Cards & Gift Tags

Updated on August 20, 2014

A Gift of Words From My House to Yours ...

If you're at a loss when it comes to signing Christmas cards or expressing Holiday sentiments on gift tags, you've came to the right place! I'm here to serve as Santa's little helper and save you some time during this busy Season. As you can see from the Table of Contents, there is something here for everyone. Whether your cards are hand written one by one, mass produced in the form of a family newsletter, or e-mailed as the mood strikes you, they will be a little more thoughtful with thoughtfully selected words. Enjoy reading through the "warm fuzzies" and Merry Christmas!


Christmas Verses ...

Ideal for making your own cards

Heap on the wood!-the wind is chill;

But let it whistle as it will,

We'll keep our Christmas merry still.

- Sir Walter Scott

Somehow, not only for Christmas,

But all the long year through,

The joy that you give to others,

Is the joy that comes back to you.

And the more you spend in blessing,

The poor and lonely and sad,

The more of your heart's possessing,

Returns to you glad. - John Greenleaf Whittier

Oh! lovely voices of the sky

Which hymned the Saviour's birth,

Are ye not singing still on high,

Ye that sang, "Peace on earth"? - Felicia Hemans


Ideas for Using Quotes in Signing Your Cards ...

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."

~Norman Vincent Peale

Dear Aunt Betty, Wishing you a bit of magic on Christmas, and always.


"What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."

Dear Ones Near and Far, Wishing you peace and blessings!


"Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind."

~Mary Ellen Chase

Dear Uncle Frank, You are especially on my mind during this special season.


"It is Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air."

~W.T. Ellis

Dear Ben, From my heart to yours, Merry Christmas!

Or another heartfelt message ...

"Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts."

~Janice Maeditere

Dear Friends, With open hearts we wish you a Merry Christmas.

"From home to home, and heart to heart, from one place to another.

The warmth and joy of Christmas, brings us closer to each other."

Dear Grandma, From our home to yours, we hold you close in spirit this holiday season.

Convey the Reason for the Season ...

"There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries." ~W.J. Cameron

"When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs?" ~G.K. Chesterton

Christ Is Born - May the wonder of His love fill every waiting heart. Merry Christmas

We pray you'll discover many beautiful new reasons to praise God during this holy season.

May His love surround you at Christmastime and always.

God bless you at Christmas and always.

Great little One!

whose all-embracing birth

Lifts Earth to Heaven,

stoops Heaven to Earth. - Richard Crashaw

"Bless us Lord, this Christmas,

with quietness of mind;

Teach us to be patient,

and always to be kind."

- Helen Steiner Rice

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born,

to us a son is given,

and the government will be on his shoulders.

And he will be called

Wonderful Counselor, [b] Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Matthew 1:18-25

Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. (19) And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. (20) But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, "Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. (21) She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." (22) All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: (23) "Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel" (which means, God with us). (24) When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, (25) but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus.

Romantic Christmas Expressions ...

"My heart is totally filled with things

That words alone can't say,

This comes especially for you

With love on Christmas Day."

"I know I've told you many times

How much I love you, Dear,

And how it seems to me

You grow still sweeter every year,

But since this is Christmas day,

I'm saying it once more

With an even deeper meaning

Than it's ever had before."

Family & Christmas ...

especially nice for scrapbooking

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:

the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas

if you stop opening presents and listen."

Bobby - age 7

Simple Signatures ...

There are other options besides Love, & Sincerely,

Warmest wishes,

Always and forever yours,

God be with you,

May God bless you and keep you,

Missing you,

A Few of the Classics ...

"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year."

~ Charles Dickens (1812-1870), English author. From 'A Christmas Carol'.

"It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, "God Bless Us, Every One!".

Charles Dickens

"And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more."

Dr. Seuss

A Bit of Humor ...

The one thing women don't want to find in their stockings on Christmas morning is their husband.

Christmas: When you exchange hellos with strangers and good buys with friends.

A Christmas shopper's complaint is one of long-standing.

Christmas Candle ...

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;

It makes no noise at all,

But softly gives itself away;

While quite unselfish, it grows small.

- Eva K. Logue


Shall We Pause to Mention Clause?

"They err who thinks Santa Claus comes down through the chimney; he really enters through the heart."

~ Mrs. Paul M. Ell.

"Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. . . . Thank God! He lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

- - - Francis Pharcellus Church "The Sun" Sept 21, 1897

"What do you call people who are afraid of Santa Claus?" Claustrophobic

Ho, ho, ho, please say hello ...
