Top Christmas Card Picks 2015





Christmas is lurking just around the corner, the lights are up and the decorations are starting to stock on the supermarket shelf.  If, like me, you're starting to write your gift lists, plan wrapping colour schemes and prep for the Christmas food shop then any kind of wish list or pinterest post is a huge help! After much research, I've pulled together my top seven christmas cards being sold this year and hope this will bring you some extra time saved.  

1| Kids are all about the new technology these days, I like to think I'm pretty up to speed so when I spied these interactive Christmas cards from John Lewis that lets you upload an interactive video to a Q code on the card I was so impressed! This is perfect for my younger brother who may not normally blink twice at a card, impress the younger generation with these cards!  Just £4.50!
2| I'm not a crafter, I can make beautiful wrapping and put things to together nicely but creation is definitely not my thing.  If you're a bit more crafty then me though and want to get stuck in, the DIY card kit from Hobbycraft is a snip at £5.
3 & 4| For those on more of a budget, head to card factory this season.  This has generally been our go to shop for packs of good quality hand finished cards for a reasonable price. I love these deer print and central park winter cards for £1.99 for 10 cards.  Write on the inside with a gold gel pen to make it super Christmassy!
5| Dog lovers will love this cute dachshund print card from John Lewis, it's simple and devoid of all snow/tinsel/christmas trees/mistletoe which make it perfect for those who want plain glad tidings.  
6| I always hit Etsy for special cards, I've got a cheeky sense of humour and cards with a bit of tongue in cheek are by far my favourite to send.  My favourite seller is Finch and Fallow, there were so many to choose from but this one made me spit my tea out when I saw it in laughter so it made the blog.  Go check them out!
7| Saving the best until last, I recently stumbled upon Quentin Blake's christmas cards when researching for charity Christmas cards to send this year. Every year he brings out a capsule collection for a different charity and his charming illustrations bring back lots of childhood memories.  He's yet to release this year's but I've popped the link to last year's on Amazon for you to buy in advance, there's a few special cards (for your mom, dad, nan, etc.) floating about so do have a little search.  I'll be purchasing a few of these this year for my family for sentimental value.

Hope that little list was helpful to you and saved you an hour to better spend elsewhere.  I'll be popping up a few Christmas help posts over the coming weeks so do make sure you stayed tuned!

See you Tuesday!
