Six Christmas cards we’d love to get this year

Six Christmas cards we’d love to get this year

Although we admit we stick to WhatsApp for most, (ok, maybe all) of our communication during the rest of the year, Christmas is the one time you should really get your nice pens out and send a handwritten card. Writing cards is a great way to get in the festive mood, and we’ve chosen six that will definitely get pride of place on the mantelpiece.

Christmas cards

Not only do we love the fun design of this card, each one is letter-pressed by hand in Donegal onto 100% cotton card, making it wonderfully tactile. The envelope is made from 100% recycled post-consumer waste, and the clear protective wrap is fully compostable and biodegradable, so you can rest assured your greetings will have minimal environmental impact.  Let it snow letterpress card, €4.20, The Pear in Paper

 

Christmas cards

Perfect for the minimalists in your life, this geometric design still has a festive feel with beautiful gold foil detail. Printed on thick, textured card, it also comes in biodegradable cellophane. Navy and foil present card, €4.50, Industry & Co

 

Christmas cards

Artist Sally Caulwell has adapted her signature botanical prints for this Christmas card, exclusively available at Irish Design Shop. Printed in white ink on recycled brown card, it features a selection of winter botanicals including holly, larch, oak, mistletoe, blackthorn, Douglas fir and Scots pine. Sally Caulwell card, €4.50, Irish Design Shop

 

If you prefer to send your festive greetings as Gaeilge, this card is perfect, with a cute snowy design. They’re made in Dublin, and also come in packs of six, so there’s no excuse for not spreading the Christmas joy around. Nollaig Shona Dhuit Pack Of Cards, €8.00, Cuando.

 

Christmas cards 

A card with a surprise gift, the wooden tree can actually be removed and used as a hanging decoration. Whether or not that’s the only present you give them is entirely up to you. Wooden tree card, €3.50, Designist.

For something a bit special, Paper Bear do beautiful pop-up designs, from robins to snowflakes, and even this amazing scene of Dublin landmarks. Dublin’s Fair City card, €4.99, Paperbear.ie
