The holiday season is here, and it’s the perfect time to give the gift of Christmassy content. Here are some festive video ideas to kick you off!
Whether it’s greetings cards, tree decorations or gaudy festive jumpers, Christmas is a fantastic time to show off your crafting skills. Everyone seems to get the DIY bug at this time of year, so it’s the perfect opportunity to put together a fun, seasonal tutorial video to share your wonderful skills.
Festive Life Hacks
The holidays are supposed to be fun, festive and full of glad tidings. However, inevitable stress can creep in – did I remember everyone’s gifts, will the roast potatoes turn out okay, why have half the fairy lights stopped working!? Sharing your nifty tips and life hacks to navigate the holiday period could draw in new audience members, and really make life easier for your existing ones.
Christmas-themed Gaming Livestream
You may already be having a laugh with your Twitch streaming, or you might be a super serious pro gamer, but sharing a light-hearted Christmas themed gaming stream is a great way to connect with your audience on a more relaxed and fun level.
Year Round Up
There is no denying, 2020 has been pretty shocking (insert plethora of other negative adjectives), but you may have an interesting take on things. Maybe you’re skilled in giving any situation a humorous spin and are feeling the absence of Charlie Brooker’s Yearly Wipe. A video rounding up the year is a nice way of tying a bow on the last 12 months.
Seasonal Fun Facts
So you think you know all there is to know about the holiday season? Why not spread the knowledge and prep your audience for their Christmas pub quizzes or arm them for the festive family small talk?
The best bit about the festive season? The food. Fact. Sure, presents are nice and seeing family and friends is lovely, but does that top cheese platters, cookies and fancy brunches? I’m afraid not. If you’re a whizz in the kitchen and have some creative Christmas recipes, I guarantee there’s an army of people like me out there who would love to see them!
Sharing love and appreciation is important all year round, but people generally get very warm and fuzzy inside around Christmas. It’s an ideal time to create a video thanking your subscribers/followers/audience for sticking with you and letting the know how much they mean to you.
Winter Wardrobe & Holiday Makeup
The change of the season means a change of wardrobe, and many people love to change up their looks around the holidays. Videos focussing on Christmassy capsule wardrobes and festive makeup are extremely popular – just look at Zoella.
Christmas Music Video
Be it your own track or a Christmas classic, creating a music video is a great way to show off your filmmaking or animation skills. Here at Synchedin we have a great playlist of royalty free holiday music for you to use alongside your green screen videos, animations or cinematic shoots.
‘Tis the season of giving. If you’re a content creator with a business or are working with partners or sponsors, December is a brilliant time for festive giveaways. This can be items, experiences, subscriptions, you name it! Creating promo videos for your giveaways will boost interest and spread the word about your business.
