Unique Christmas Out Of Office Templates

Christmas is almost upon us once again! As many of you are gearing up to step away from your hectic work routines and enjoy the holiday season with loved ones, embark on a skiing adventure, or catch up on all the fantastic shows you’ve overlooked, we can’t help but get organised. And we’re here to help you do just that! At TVAC, we’re organised by nature, so we’ve put together some fun and unique Christmas out-of-office templates you can copy and paste this festive season before you sign off until next year!

Many people opt for a ‘short and to the point’, no-nonsense message, but heck, it’s Christmas! Why not get a little creative and have some fun?

With that said, here are some unique Christmas out-of-office templates for you to enjoy. Feel free to copy and paste them for your own use.

Short and to the point

The ‘urgent emails only’ fun message


I’m out of the office for the holidays from [date] to [date]. However, I will be taking occasional breaks from binge-watching Christmas films and eating too much chocolate to check my email for urgent matters.

Please resend any messages that require my immediate attention with a subject line of “URGENT”.

If your matter isn’t urgent, it’s likely your note will temporarily be swallowed in a sea of unread emails, to be responded to after I return to reality in 2024.
