How to Connect With Your Family This Christmas

We lead busy lives, and as internationalists, many of us won’t be by the side of our loved ones this Christmas. So, in the spirit of giving, here at Asda Mobile we thought it would be nice to show you a way to keep close ties with the people we care about, even if you’re on the other side of the world from them.

Snap happy Christmas

Snapchat releases new seasonal filters all the time and this Christmas promises to be no different. So make sure you send your friends and family some great photos – and don’t be afraid to make yourself look a bit silly! This year more than ever before, Snapchat will partner with some of your favourite brands to create unique new filters, so get them while they’re hot.

Send an incredible card

Sometimes, digital messages and cards just won’t cut it. Christmas is one of those times. However, if you draw out a card and message, you can use an app like Inkly to digitize the image and turn it into a real card that can be sent to your loved ones. Complete customisation and authenticity – what’s not to love?

A call from Santa?

If there are young children in your family, surprise them with a text or a phone call from Santa himself! Santa has a number of different reasons to call, and will even use the child’s name, age and interests during the call. It’s an incredible little app that is well worth downloading.

Voice to voice

While a simple text message is often the only option, at Christmas, try to call as many people as you can, rather than text. While it’s often easier to text, calling somebody leaves a longer lasting impression, and at Christmas, that’s important.

With all of the downloading, calling and texting your loved ones in the UK this festive season, you might need a boost to your data, minutes and texts. Thankfully, at Asda Mobile we’re giving away 20GB data, unlimited minutes and unlimited texts for just £10 with our Mega 30-day Christmas bundle!

To stay connected to your loved ones across the globe, take a look at our great international rates.
