1. Baudville

Christmas website

Baudville parades its website in soft colors that are easy on the eyes. It’s a company that offers assorted gift ideas for employees, making it easier for business owners to celebrate events and occasions. The overall Christmas-themed design is impressive, with the proper hierarchy of text. The layout presents the heading bearing the biggest font down to the description of the gift items in a brief paragraph. Even though the copy is relatively longer, combining different font style pairings makes it legible. 

2. Apple

Christmas website

Apple has been a quintessential brand for writing the best and most persuasive copy ever. The brand also banks on simplicity and sophistication, which shows in its copywriting. Apple delivers the message to their target audience with only three sentences containing punchy copy. Apple then showcases the different product categories so customers can quickly choose one. This makes the user experience topnotch, keeping the shopping time brief and straightforward. 

3. Hydroflask

Christmas themed website

A limited-time offer is another way you can build excitement while sprucing up your website for the holidays. Hydroflask writes, “12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS” to indicate their daily offers starting at 9 AM from December 1 to 12. This marketing tactic is a way to grab attention and have customers return to their website to check the daily exclusive offers. 

Hydroflask’s website design also looks festive, donning all Christmas colors. The different patterns across the homepage also give this website a lively and energetic tone. 

4. J.Crew

Christmas themed website

J.Crew took a different approach to their Christmas-themed website. By integrating real people wearing their products, customers can see how they will fit them. Although they won’t be able to virtually try them on like other augmented reality clothing retail websites, they’ll still be able to imagine how the clothes would look. The company also chose the color gold to symbolize the Christmas festivities. They choose gold kids’ dresses, pants, gold shoes, belt, accessories, and a golden headband. 

5. Target

Christmas themed website

Target has one of the best Christmas websites with a clean layout. The homepage looks playful and bright, just in time for the Christmas holidays. Target’s red color palette also aligns with the season’s color.

As you can see, Target has a web page that shines with a bright red color with a big heading that says “deal of the day.” It’s then complemented with product images, price, and the discount percentage for each product. Displaying how much you’re slashing off the price is a good Christmas advertising strategy, as everyone is scrambling to get the best deals as gifts for friends and family. 

6. Starbucks

Christmas themed website

What better way to celebrate the spirit of giving than offering discounted drinks to your regular customers? Starbucks is about giving back to their regular patrons by letting them order drinks at half the price every Thursday afternoon in December. Choosing a particular day and time could be a good marketing strategy to increase sales during relatively slow days.

Starbucks only offers this promo to Starbucks Rewards members. With a call to action on its homepage, this will encourage Starbucks fans to sign up. Paired with a nice, enticing image of the drink, Starbucks hit the nail on the head with this year’s holiday-themed website. 

7. Sephora

Christmas themed website

Sephora’s cotton candy colors on its website exemplify how branding consistency is crucial. This brand’s target audience demographics are between 24 and 36, so choosing these fun and vivid solid colors is apt. Sephora laid out their Christmas promos strategically by making the discount rates the most prominent on a fiery red background. These promos are then paired with the products’ images in a grid with different colors. Overall, Sephora’s Christmas website shows how structure coupled with copywriting works in online advertising!

8. Elf Yourself

Anyone who has tried Elf Yourself SNOWS the drill. It’s an American interactive platform that allows users to upload images of themselves and put them on dancing elves. Since its inception, there have been over 1.5 billion elves created that entertained everybody all across the world.

No-fluff Christmas websites like this one have all the traditional Christmas colors and elements such as wreaths, Christmas trees, and of course, the elves. On the main page, five elves with blank faces will welcome users. They will have the option of uploading up to five photos of the dancing elves.

Once the photos are uploaded, the elves then dance to different songs and themes. The users will have the option to post the video or save it for kicks. Since Elf Yoursel’s origin as an advertising campaign in 2006, it has become a hugely successful website to date. So if you want to take an ELFie, put the photo to good use and “Elf Yourself.”
