Yes, yes, I know it’s not very eco to send Christmas cards in the age of email and social media, but, if you’re anything like me, you won’t be able to resist the lure of this divine paper trail. Stay tuned for our Christmas guides to wrapping, stockings and decorations, plus the 2013 Gift Guide over the next couple of weeks. And, if you haven’t already, check out the super-cuteness of our This Kid Loves… Christmas feature and our top advent calendars.
Christmas owl, Â£3.35, Solitaire. Ideal for that special owl-loving friend… (hint, hint)
Christmas Jumper, Â£12 for five, Maple Tea. Everyone’s fond of a bit of festive knitwear.
Birds, Â£12 for twelve, Prism of Starlings. I think I’ll be investing in these ultra-modern birdies.
Jack Teagle polar bears, penguins and snowflakes, Â£9.50 for 9,Â Ohh Deer! Something for all tastes in this pack.Â
MoMA Robot, Â£21.95 for eight, DesignShop UK. Not wallet-friendly, but MoMA cards are always showstoppers.
Twelve Days of Christmas, Â£14, Abigail Warner. This ultra-modern typographic take on the 12 Days is ultra-gorgeous.
Naughty or Nice badge card, Â£4.50, Present & Correct. Which of Santa’s lists are you on this year?
Mittens cards, Â£8 for twelve, NineteenSeventyThree. Recycled, festive and very handy (sorry!).
Library card, Â£2.50, Papermash. One for bibliophiles (or people who are very bad with dates!)
Letterpress cards, Â£6.50 for six, Dowse. Love the vintage styling – made from paper milled from sustainable forests in the UK.
Bauble card, Â£2.55, Sarah Dennis. A reindeer on a bauble – the most Christmassy thing ever?
MAC Kids Helping Kids, Â£5 for six, Selfridges. A pack of cards designed by children to help children affected by HIV/Aids – what’s not to like?
