Writing a holiday letter is a great way to update family and friends on everything that has happened over the year. Create a family update letter they’ll love reading with these simple tricks:
1. Keep it short Focus on 4 to 5 highlights (new job, babies, trips — but leave out the bragging), says John Llewellyn, associate professor of communication at Wake Forest University.
2. Include the kids Have young kids dip their thumbs in green acrylic paint and stamp on a corner. Add red dots and you’ve got a cute holly.
4. Go high-tech Bring a copy of your text and a family photo to Kinko’s, where they’ll superimpose your letter over the image for $40.
5. Seal it with a photo Turn a family picture into a postage stamp at photo.stamps.com. Twenty 37-cent stamps are $17.
