Stay connected over the holidays

Connecting with far-flung friends and family is even more important during the holidays. If you can’t physically visit loved ones, here are a few ways to share some love and stay connected during the holidays.

Share the fun on social media

Use photos and videos to keep friends and family around the world updated on all your holiday festivities. Consider using an app or website to make a fun graphic. We know you secretly love the dancing elf videos! Why not invite your family to use a specific hashtag when sharing? With the tap, click, or swipe of the hashtag, you can follow along throughout the season! #GreatestFamilyChristmasEver

Set up a family movie night

A virtual movie night is one of my favorite activities any time of year. It doesn’t matter if you’re across the state or on the other side of the world. Video streaming makes connecting over the holidays easy. Stream your favorite film, grab some popcorn, and everyone hit play at the same time. Double the fun by staying on the phone during the flick to sing along together.

Send some snail mail

We do so much on the internet. It’s always nice to see a letter from someone you know when you open the mail. E-cards are fun, but go old school and send a sweet holiday card or fun family newsletter!

Video chat

Gather around a computer or video-enabled smart device to spread a little holiday cheer. Seeing a special family member’s reaction when they open the gift you sent is just as special over a video chat. Make sure you have a fast internet connection so your gift giving or caroling doesn’t get glitchy.

Pick up the phone

Sometimes, hearing the sound of a loved one’s voice can be the best gift of all. If friends and family live in another country, make sure you have an international calling plan so you can talk, text, or carol all season long!

Snag great tech accessories
