6 Group Video Ideas for the Fall

Fall Group Video & Video Message Ideas

Autumn is a season full of brightly colored leaves, cooler weather, and plenty of holidays and other special occasions. Be sure to celebrate and capture this season’s important life moments with a group video. Not only are group videos a meaningful way to make memories, but they make thoughtful, one-of-a-kind gifts that the recipient will love. 

Intrigued? Let’s dive in and take a look at a few group videos and message ideas for the fall. 

1. Back to School 

Need some back to school ideas for your student? Back to School Group Videos let parents easily create personalized digital keepsakes and are a meaningful way to mark big milestones. Whether your little one is starting school for the very first time or your big kid is off to high school or college, wish them well with video messages of love and support from friends and family.

Students are sure to appreciate the messages of congrats and encouragement! 

If you’re a teacher looking for back to school activities, consider creating a group video where your school’s administrators and teachers introduce themselves and welcome all new and returning students. Here's a wonderful example from Baldy Mesa Elementary School where teachers and staff created a group video to welcome students back: 

2. Rosh Hashanah & Diwali

Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) and Diwali (the Hindu New Year) are holidays that involve celebrating new beginnings and extending wishes for a good year to friends and family. Holiday Group Videos are meaningful ways to connect to a long-distance relative who can’t celebrate in person or a beloved synagogue or temple member.

Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah is a two-day observance where people celebrate God’s creation of the world and ask Him for forgiveness. Group videos for this holiday can incorporate Rosh Hashanah customs such as lighting candles, saying a special prayer, and sending warm wishes for a good year to loved ones. 

Rosh Hashanah Video Message Ideas 

  • L’Shona Tova! May your home be filled with countless blessings this year. 
  • Shalom! Wishing you a year of peace.
  • Sending love and good wishes for the year ahead. 
  • May the new year bring sweetness, joy, and time well spent together. 
  • Shana Tova Tikateivu! (“May you be inscribed in the Book of Life for a good year!”)
  • Wishing you a Rosh Hashanah that is filled with love and meaning. 


Diwali is a festival of lights and one of the major Hindu festivals celebrated throughout the year. Group videos for this holiday can capture important traditions such as dressing in colorful clothing, lighting lanterns and lamps, and decorating with rangoli, a colorful artwork made with sand or rice.

Most importantly, be sure to record heartfelt messages that wish the recipient a Happy Diwali!

Diwali Video Message Ideas 

  • Happy Diwali! Wishing you peace and prosperity in the new year!
  • Best wishes for a joyous Diwali filled with love and happiness.
  • Wishing you a colorful, cheerful Diwali with your loved ones.
  • May this Diwali mark the beginning of a joyous year for you and yours.
  • Hope this year's Diwali is filled with wisdom and laughter.
  • May your Diwali be as luminous as the lights that celebrate it.

3. National Boss's Day 

Let your supervisor know how much you appreciate them with a thoughtful video gift on National Boss’s Day (October 16). Send your coworkers a link that invites them to contribute to the video, collect their video clips, and combine them into a final group video your boss will love! 

Employees can share their favorite thing about working with their boss or the best advice their boss has given them then wish them a Happy Boss’s Day. Below are a few video message ideas for inspiration.

Spread Halloween cheer with kids’ Halloween Videos for Grandparents. If Grandma and Grandpa can’t see their grandkids dressed as ghosts and goblins in person this year, parents can send them a video with the little ones explaining their costumes and showing them off!

Spread Halloween fear with a Spooky Story group video. Have friends and family share their favorite scary story and encourage them to dress up in character and decorate their backdrop to match the story’s theme. Once everyone has submitted their video clips, combine them into a collection of spooky stories that family and friends can watch on Halloween night!
