Personalize it.

Whether you’re sharing holiday deals with your customers or sending holiday wishes to your family, your video should make a personal impact. Let your personality shine, add your own video clips and images, and keep it candid. 

Be mindful with music.

Music has the power to set the mood in video, especially in a holiday video. Choose your own music or browse Vimeo Create’s stock library to find the perfect tune to match the holiday or add a cheerful or festive vibe to a holiday video to share with your loved ones. 

Keep it short.

Most holiday videos don’t need to be long. Try to spread your messaging across two or three minutes, depending on what the video is for and where you plan to share it. Vimeo Create’s free holiday video maker includes easy to use editing tools so you can split or trim video clips to shorten your video.
