If you really want that special someone to have a Merry Christmas this year, Kristen Bell suggests that a few taps on your phone should do the trick. 

The actress and singer has paired up with the a cappella group Straight No Chaser for the new song "Text Me a Merry Christmas," a holiday ode to an age when everyone is glued to cell phones and don't want to bother making an actual phone call. The song reminds listeners to make sure "to fully charge your phone" this December and "that just a word or two of text from you will remind me you're still there." 

Bell also suggests throwing in a few emojis to really convey the emotion, and that even a few spelling and grammatical errors are OK, because it's the thought that counts.
