As travelers, we may not be able to be with our friends or family on New Year’s Eve. The pandemic in 2020-2021 made it almost impossible for many to be able to go to visit their families.
But we can definitely surprise them with an amazing New Year’s e-card sent via e-mail. And a smile on their faces, even if we won’t be there to see it, is definitely worth it. So here are 10+ websites to send wonderful New Year cards to friends and family! I also included great sites with Happy New Year messages for family, friends, and more!
As a side note, I have to say that I spent a lot of time finding such wonderful websites to send personalized New Year’s cards.
I like to send beautiful holiday ecards, birthday cards, and so on, so I’m always looking for the best e-cards websites – with many options, animated cards, cards that are delivered, etc.
I also have to admit that I like being surprised with such a New Year’s Eve ecard (or Christmas card, or birthday card). It’s the gesture that I appreciate – and a nice surprise as, of course, I’m not expecting it.
Plus, sending an e-card is not only for travelers. No one can be with all their friends on New Year’s Eve. Maybe not even with the entire family. So a New Year’s e-card is a good way to make a wish, send them a good vibe.
Another advantage is that it is free. As opposed to calling/texting – which, if you live in different countries, may cost you (depends on the offer you have) – usually, we have free Wi-Fi in many places. So we can send such holiday e-cards from cafes, rented apartments, hotels, etc., as long as they have free Wi-Fi.
While there are numerous websites with great e-cards that you can send only if you pay, there are also many websites that allow you to send free holiday e-cards. Like I said, I use some of these all year round to surprise my friends.
Some of these websites even allow you to send those e-cards via What’s App – as many people use this app. So, even better, right?
Anyway, here is a list of 15 websites to send great free New Year’s Eve cards to friends and family:
123greetings.com – the site I use the most often when I send e-cards
Best Animations – they say you can share and download all the animations for free – share them on Facebook, send them via e-mail, etc. Awesome!

You have numerous templates – for blog posts, various social media platforms (Facebook post or cover, Pinterest, Instagram post or story, etc.), and other options: ecards, leaflet, etc. You have free templates or the possibility to start from scratch.
