Warning! This blog post is not for you if you’re currently sitting on the ‘Bah! Humbug’ bus with your anti-Christmas blinkers on.

Yes, that logo. That perfect masterpiece of design, the symbol of your awesomeness. What better way to show your festive cheer than by making a few seasonal tweaks? Be it subtle sparkles or full on sleigh reshaping there’s always something we can do to liven it up!
A Christmas landing page in red and green could really set the scene. Or candy cane red and white. Or snow white and green. Or maybe – be Blitzen bold and Christmas colourise your existing home page.
So many choices! Whether you choose images or words, or a combination of the two, a header is a great space to share your Christmas message with everyone that visits your site!
Who doesn’t love a quality animation? Let it snow, let it snow; or have Santa stomp his footprints all over that perfectly laid out homepage; maybe brighten it up with Christmas lights or bring on the dancing reindeer (it could happen!)
If it works for your site without inducing visual overwhelm – go for it!
Especially useful if you’re heading towards a sale, or a holiday, or a giveaway.
People like to participate, especially if there’s the chance of winning something!

Everyone recognises the 12 days of Christmas as an unofficial countdown, so if it fits in with what your business does it can be a great way of filling your sales department with seasonal cheer!

A perfect way to send a personalised – thank you and here’s to another great year – message to every one of the clients that supports your business by giving you their business.
If any of these festive and fun ideas appeal to you – we salute you!
