Christmas Gift Guide: Greeting Cards


I'm so so excited to be finally writing this post!! I wanted to wait until it was really starting to feel like the beginning of the festive period and finally this weekend saw the return of both the Coca Cola advert and the arrival of Monty the Penguin thanks to John Lewis! I absolutely love everything about the coming weeks, i've learnt to enjoy the run up to Christmas as much as the Day itself - everything from spending time with friends appreciating a good hot drink, making plans for that wonderful week off work, starting to look for presents for my friends and family and not forgetting writing out my own wishlist too!

Since starting Paper Crush earlier this year i have to admit my wishlist has gone a little crazy - i love discovering and sharing all of the beautiful products with you and hope you find something new when you stop by too. There are so many great designers and makers out there, it can be really hard to pick your favourites - so this year i'd like to help by presenting you with a series of posts of the next few weeks picking out some of my top picks for Christmas - my Gift Guide for you.

Today let's start with Christmas Cards - with just over 5 weeks until the recommended cut off date for posting your seasonal greetings now is the perfect time to get stocked up, so i've picked out some of my favourites to help get you started...

Whilst this post is not sponsored and all of the cards were selected for this feature by myself, i would like to thank each of the makers for sending me samples - my first attempt at taking my own photos and whilst the perfectionist in me thinks i've still got a lot to learn, i was completely blown away by the quality and general loveliness of all of these cards - i still haven't taken them down... :)
