Below, we’ll walk you through each of the holiday email templates and how to use them. But first, let’s quickly cover what makes these templates special.
While we like to think of ourselves as humble folks, we’ve got to toot our horn over these email templates. With so much going for them, it makes them a hot commodity:
We don’t have a holiday email template for every special day (there are a lot of holidays, you know), but our simple, responsive designs are customizable for any day of the year with a quick tweak to the colors and images. Intentionally designed, these templates make personalization fast and easy.
Send a Black Friday promotional email that packs a punch with an email template focusing on bold images, quick copy, and white space galore. Whether desktop, tablet, or mobile users, they’ll see your headline and hero image front and center above the fold, making sure your message makes an impression.
And while Black Friday is still a few months away, you should get your campaigns in order now. Here are a few tips to prepare your program for success:
Just because you don’t have a holiday sale doesn’t mean you can’t capitalize on the spirit of the day. Use this email template to feature customer reviews about your business or services. However, keep in mind this template works best if you have a compelling hero image that’ll capture your reader’s attention.
Capture the Halloween spirit with a spooky email template. You don’t necessarily need a sale or special announcement to have something to say, either—just provide an engaging experience for your audience. Remember, always focus on providing value for your customers. So if they walk away from your email with a grin on their face, you’ve done your job.
The retail holiday email template works great for promoting a special discount with a traditional newsletter element. Tailor it to your brand by showcasing your big-time deal at the top with your hero image and bold CTA button, then using the remaining real estate to feature relevant blog posts.

Email templates provide a time-saving way for marketers to create beautiful responsive emails. And now that you’ve seen a few templates, let’s discuss a few tactics for how to choose the right prebuilt email template and customize it to match your brand and campaign.
First, think about your purpose. Some emails will do better with a single CTA, while others lend themselves to showcasing multiple ecommerce products. Next, think about your brand’s voice. While you can edit the fonts, colors, and design of any template, look for one that already feels like your brand from the get-go. This’ll minimize design work on your end.
Once you’ve chosen the right holiday email template, here’s how to customize it to make it yours:
