Although the iconic poet John Clare sums up my Christmas evenings (except it’s a dog, not a cat):
“The yule cake dotted thick with plumbs
Is on each supper table found
And cats look up for falling crumbs
Which greedy children litter round
And housewives sage stuffed seasoned chine
Long hung in chimney nook to dry
And boiling elderberry berry wine
To drink the Christmas eves ‘goodbye’.”
The Christmas range features a charming array of cards from single relations to general cards including box sets, decorations, gift wrap and bags, Christmas stationery and napkins perfect for Christmas day or a festive supper. The range has been designed to co-ordinate and work well together theme-wise so whether you prefer the festive stag or the jolly robin, each piece can be matched perfectly or match various designs for a unique look. You can view the whole Christmas range here.
For small gifts, a gift bag and tissue paper is ideal as it protects the gift and looks rather pleasing to the eye. With a selection of various sizes and illustrations from snoozing foxes to a proud stag with bauble decorated antlers, Wrendale Designs has something to offer. Complete with a red ribbon to keep the gift secure, a little tag with the same jolly robin illustration and holly berry on a red background, this gift bag echoes Christmas in the countryside. I popped in a little tissue paper to keep the gift secure and as it’s fragile; will protect it too. The pack of tissue paper includes four sheets with charmingly illustrated characters (this one features the classic stag design).
