holidays‘Tis the season for giving, and what better way to show your friends and family how much you care this holiday season than by sending them personalized video greetings?

This week we launched two holiday-inspired themes – “Happy Holidays!” and “Merry Christmas!” – and they’re perfect for creating memorable, personalized video greetings to share your life, the highlights of your family’s year, and other precious holiday moments with family and friends, near and far.

To create yours, just login to the Magisto iPhone, Android or Web app, select your favorite photos and videos and then choose the “Happy Holidays” or “Merry Christmas!” theme and one of the holiday songs from our music library. Give your Movie a title and sit back while we create your holiday greeting for you. You can add an extra personal touch in the following ways:

  • Include your friend or family member’s name in the Movie’s title
  • Photograph yourself holding up handwritten signs with holiday messages
  • Include photos and videos you know the person you’re making the holiday Movie for would especially appreciate

Once your Movie is completed, you can share it with your friends and family via email, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or text message.

This time of year, people are shooting more video than ever. In a recent poll of our users, 80% said they plan to shoot and share video this holiday season – that’s a 56% increase over the number of people who shoot video in an ordinary month! Why not take that video and turn it into personalized video greetings?

Looking for inspiration? Check out a couple holiday Magisto Movies below – the first created by our CMO Reid and the second by our Community Manager Megan! You can also view Movies from our community (and share your own!) in our special “Happy Holidays!” open album. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
