The Top Digital Alternatives to Christmas Cards

So, you’re not overly fond of the idea of sending out a card in the traditional way this Christmas, and you’re wondering what other Christmas card alternatives there are out there. 

At the end of the day, what matters is that you’re able to share your seasonal wishes with whomever you wish, whether it’s colleagues, loved ones, acquaintances, employees or clients. 

Read on to discover the top digital alternatives to Christmas cards this holiday season…

Send out an ecard instead 

If you aren’t familiar with what an ecard is, think of it as an digital Christmas card

Getting your Christmas messages out using this digital alternative, as opposed to a traditional Christmas card, is a much better option – and for a variety of reasons.


The first reason is that ecards simply make life much easier. They are cost-effective in comparison to their traditional counterparts, and there’s no more of the Christmas cards you spent time and money on getting lost in the post, because they’re delivered to recipients’ inboxes instantly. 

For example, think how much time it usually takes to write out each recipient’s address for each Christmas card. With an ecard, you can send out a message straight to their inbox either individually or in a list format without a second thought.


Another great reason to choose an ecard as your digital alternative to a Christmas card this year is that you can put your own personalized spin on it. Gone are the days of scanning the Christmas card aisle looking for the perfect card, because you can make it as unique as you please.

 Got an inside joke? Great, use it for your ecard. Do you have pictures you’d like to use? Go for it! Or alternatively, if it’s for a group of people, you’ll still be able to design and word your ecard in whatever way you wish to suit a more generalized message. The possibilities are endless! 

Audio message 

If you’re not particularly technologically savvy but you’re still wanting an alternative to the traditional method this year, consider sending out an audio message instead. 

Sending a voice note can be easily done via your social media platform direct messages, or through any online messenger for that matter. Alternatively, if you’re not on social media, sending an audio message is also easy to do through an SMS text on most mobile devices.

Although audio messages are a simple alternative, they can sometimes lack the meaning that comes with taking the time to send a Christmas card. So, if you’re wanting to make it a little more special than an audio message – we’d still recommend trying out an ecard this year. 

Social media posts

Did you know that you’re able to upload your ecard creation as a post on social media?

If you’re super pleased with how your ecard turned out, and you want more than your recipient list to see it, simply upload it as a post onto any social media platform you wish! 

We’ll never deter you from spreading the Christmas spirit in any way you would like. If you’re in need of a little inspiration, check out our blog on the best alternative messages to write in Christmas cards here.


Last, but certainly not least, if you’re looking for a fun way to spread a little Christmas cheer this year, why not try something a little unconventional – like an interactive game. 

Our games can be easily sent to as many recipients as you’d like, the same and easy way you’d send out an ecard. 

At eCo2 Greetings, we offer four superb games that you can customize and send out to anyone you wish. If you’re intrigued by this digital alternative, we’ll include an overview of what you can expect from our games below – or feel free to watch the taster videos for all of our superb games here. 

Snowball Mania  

Our fantastic Snowball Mania game goes down well with workplaces! Have you ever wanted to throw a snowball at your colleague’s face? Well, technically, now you can! Even if it is in a virtual sense. 

All you have to do is send us over the images of anyone you want to be involved in the game, and we’ll do the rest. 

Snap Calendar 

If you love advent calendars, you’ll love Snap Calendar

When you send out our Snap Calendar game, recipients will get a chance to identify and match images hidden inside the game. 

And the best part is the images can be whatever you like! Popular choices tend to include company logos and pictures of loved ones, colleagues, employees, and sometimes even a product. It really is up to you! Snap Calendar is the perfect choice for you if you’re wanting to show a fun side to your business. 

Reindeer Race

Next up, we have Reindeer Race – the ultimate crowd-pleaser. 

Our beloved Reindeer Race is an interactive game that involves picking your favorite reindeer character to compete in a race against the clock to crown the winner. What’s more, you’ll also be able to customize the game with your own imagery. It’s the perfect choice for thrill-seeking recipients! 

Sliding Puzzle

If you love a good brain teaser, you’ll adore our Sliding Puzzle game! 

Getting your unique version of our Sliding Puzzle game is super straightforward to do. Simply provide us with the imagery you would like included in the game, and we’ll build a puzzle that your recipients will have a chance to enjoy! 

So, if you’re looking for an interactive game that can provide you with an opportunity to show off your problem-solving skills – Sliding Puzzle is the perfect option for you.
