3 free tools to help spread the Christmas cheer

The season is finally upon us! ‘Tis the season to exchange presents, eat turkey, endless tins of biscuits and chocolates, watch awful Christmas movies and be very, very jolly. It really is the best holiday. There’s also the whole ‘Christ’ part and celebrating Jesus, but we’ll leave that up to you.

These days, it can be difficult to get into the Christmas spirit, especially in an office environment. A happy workplace is a hard-working workplace, so December is a golden opportunity to lift your colleague’s spirits and amp up that Christmas feeling.

At 256 Media, we’ll be letting our hair down and embracing the evergreen and cinnamon candles. The holidays are here, so let’s start having some fun.

For our festive themed Friday Freebie, we’ve selected 3 free Christmas tools to help you spread that Christmas cheer. Every little helps.

1. Send a personal eCard

Hubspot Online eCards for Christmas

Most online eCard sites come with a price tag and the free ones are useless, but thankfully, our friends at HubSpot have you covered.

They released free holiday eCard templates so you can customise and send them to your colleagues, leads or customers… How generous of them! Just open them up in Powerpoint or something similar and you’ll be flying.

2. Organise your Secret Santa with drawnames.com

Drawnames.com Secret Santa Organiser Christmas

Who actually likes writing down everybody’s name, cutting them up and picking them one by one? Drawnames.com is a Secret Santa generator that does all the hard work for you.

Just add the names and emails and each person will get an email with the person they have to spoil. It’s really easy to use and you can even add your own wishlist if you want to drop some heavy hints.

3. Elf yourself with ElfYourself
