Spread the holiday cheer to your friends and family with these greeting cards they'll love.
PHOTOGRAPH: CarolinaBuzio From Carolinabuzio, $46.65 for 12 cards On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me… the cutest Christmas card. This set of 12 cards features brightly coloured, quirky illustrations that correspond to each line in the familiar Christmas song, “12 Days of Christmas”. Share them with your close family and friends and get that tune stuck in their heads for days (I bet it’s stuck in your head now, too!) PHOTOGRAPH: SteakAndEggsPlease From Steakandeggsplease, $6.80 We all have that one friend who’s always grumpy, even during the happiest time of the year. Send him or her a reminder of their resemblance to the popular Grumpy Cat meme to help them beat the blues, at least until Christmas is over. PHOTOGRAPH: Welovezakka From Welovezakka, $1.20 These cards double up as Christmas ornaments. Choose from four characters, Santa, reindeer, angel or snowman. Flip the card around and write your message on the back. After your loved one has read the card, they can roll the triangular sheet of card paper up and make it stand. PHOTOGRAPH: rhinesticknickknacks From Rhinestickknickknacks, $13.02 for five designs Print your own Christmas cards but leave the design work to the pros. Just download this package of five minimalist, understated designs in PDF format that you can use over and over. Just invest in some good quality A4 size cardstock. PHOTOGRAPH: CaptainLulo From CaptainLulo, $8.90 I absolutely adore this one. It’s Santa chillin’ in tropical weather – what’s not to love? The original paper cut illustration was painstakingly put together by hand and professionally photographed to produce this humorous print on matte card paper. PHOTOGRAPH: MyPaperCrafting From Mypapercrafting, $36.56 This intricately handcrafted box card probably won’t fit in an envelope, but that shouldn’t stop you from sending it your favourite people. The cards are assembled with utmost care, bubble-wrapped and sent out in a padded package. You can even get a customised order. PHOTOGRAPH: whimsywhimsical From Whimsywhimsical, $6.58 Choose from a selection of different designs that are hand-lettered and thoughtfully illustrated, featuring various woodland critters like foxes, rabbits and squirrels that you might chance upon on a wintry day. These will make your loved ones all warm and fuzzy inside. PHOTOGRAPH: Welovezakka From Welovezakka, $7.90 for a pack of 54 “cookies” Sure, no one else is going to see the packaging, but it’s half the fun of buying this cute bag of little cookie-scented Christmas memo cards, which can be strung up as decor for your tree or sent to friends. They come in many different shapes, including gingerbread men and women, rocking horses and pine trees. PHOTOGRAPH: TheFingersmithPress From Thefingersmithpress, $7.50 We might not gather around the fireplace roasting chestnuts, but we can certainly keep the tradition of sending greeting cards fresh with this witty twist that only Singaporeans will appreciate. PHOTOGRAPH: Loveadoodlestore From Loveadoodlestore, $4 Jazz up some plain cardstock with this hand-drawn Christmas sticker kit. These are perfect for when your kids want to help out with the card-making. (Just make sure they don’t end up hoarding all the adorable stickers for themselves.)
