Christmas really is a special time of year for lots of reasons. There's the music, the food, and, of course, the presents, but most of all, it's a time to celebrate the people in your life. That includes those who've been around forever, like friends and family, as well as the newer additions, like your partner, and their parents or grandparents. So, when you're doling out the Christmas cheer, it may be helpful to have a few Christmas texts to send your partner’s parents in mind to help make their season a little brighter, too.

What you'll say to your SO's parents on Christmas will partly depend on how well you know them. If they're newer additions to your life, keeping it simple and heartfelt may be the best way to go. However, if you have a strong bond, getting a little more sentimental might be the right kind of holiday message to touch their heart. Not sure what to say? Here's some holiday texting inspiration to help you spread some of that wonderful holiday cheer.

1. It's gift-giving time, but I already feel like I've been spoiled by knowing [partner's name] and you. I hope you have the best possible holidays!

2. Warning: I get a little sappy this time of year. But I just wanted to say one of the things I’m most grateful for is getting to know the two of you this year. Happy holidays!
