Posted By Rebekah Henson On December 6, 2012 @ 8:54 am In Email Marketing | 13 Comments

Gift giving is a big part of the holiday season. And in that spirit, we have some free gifts to dress up your email campaign for the season.

Our design intern Bethany has been as busy as an elf, creating new holiday email templates to make your campaigns festive.

Look for them in your AWeber account, or if you don’t have AWeber, check the bottom of this post for your gift. Happy holidays from AWeber!

Merry Holiday Templates

Here’s what Bethany has to say about this year’s holiday email templates:

Christmas Collage

[1]“This was the first holiday template I made, inspired by a handmade Christmas card.

On the bottom, cotton “snow” provides a base for three evergreen trees which are decorated with contrasting red buttons. This template would be great for a variety of content and can accommodate wider images without breaking the design.”

Ways To Use This Template

“Christmas Collage” is perfect for sending a simple holiday greeting to your readers. And it stretches for wider images, so use this template if you have a bigger image to send and want to add a seasonal touch to your campaign.



“In this template, Santa and his 9 reindeer arc across the sky in front of a full moon over a chilly Arctic landscape. Blue snowflakes overlay the white shapes of the moon and trees, adding a fun pattern to the scene.

If you look closely you will also notice Rudolph’s red nose faintly glowing, lighting the way for Santa’s sleigh.”

Ways To Use This Template

The “Merry Christmas” image is replaceable in the drag-and-drop message editor. Remove the image and replace it with another of the same size.


[3]“When I was younger, my sister and I would decorate gingerbread houses in December. Now that she’s grown up and married, I had to channel my creativity into a digital version.

This design captures the brightness and fun of the holidays. Colorful candy drops are stuck on with tasty icing, and candy canes spiral up the left and right to frame the content of your email.

A line of piped icing acts as a divider you can duplicate to separate your articles. It’s perfect for a cheery winter newsletter or announcement.”

Ways To Use This Template

You can pack a lot of articles into this template – it stretches vertically and the candy cane pattern repeats for a seamless look. Plus, the icing divider adds visual separation between your newsletter articles.


Snowspin [4]

Snowspin is our first animated email template! The spinning snowflakes add a subtle, eye-catching design.

“I designed this template to look good as it is or with an additional sidebar you can add in the message editor,” says Bethany, and the “Happy Holidays” text is easily replaceable. “Keep your eyes open for more animated templates in the future!”

Ways To Use This Template

The subtle animation in the header brings attention to your headline. This is a great template to add a sidebar to, with a table of contents for your newsletter or important information about your holiday business hours.


[5]“Just like its name, “Present” resembles a gift, wrapped in Christmas paper and tied up with a neat little bow. The “Merry Christmas” headline is fully customizable, allowing you to change the message or add more content above the bow.

I like this template because it gives a classy holiday look without being overpowering. It’s for emails that need a subtle holiday touch.”

Ways To Use This Template

Corporate holiday greetings need a sophisticated touch. This is the perfect template to dress up your message for the holidays without overwhelming readers with glitz and glitter.
