Illuminated robin Christmas cards

A stylish modern card with a delicate Christmas flower makes this a special keepsake lantern card.

The robin has a lovely glow if you use a flickering battery powered tea light.

Each card like this takes 2-3 days to make as all the flowers have to be cut and hand formed, ribbon threaded and parchment preparation. These are not ‘kit cards’ so you won’t find one anywhere else in the world.

You can purchase this unusual charity Christmas card from my Etsy shop or request a bespoke card to be made for you.

Top 10 quick and easy gifts using ornate envelopes.

Keeping a stock of ornate envelopes means you can make a quick and easy personalised gift for all occasions.

People will appreciate these keepsakes and enjoy the excitement of opening a pretty envelope to see what’s inside.

You can find the internet’s widest selection of ornate gift envelopes on ohhowlovelygifts – and they come with a feel good factor that all profits go to three U.K. charities supporting adults living with Muscular Dystrophy.

Here is a great top ten of ideas for using gift envelopes – all inspired by people who have told us what they have used them for.

Top 10 ways to use gift envelopes

1) Gift card / store cards

Small envelopes enable you to personalise gift cards with a pretty cover to match the theme of the gift card. Music, gaming, clothes, food – we can cover most occasions.

2) Gifting money

Gifting money at a wedding is a popular custom – and handmade wedding envelopes which can be personalised would add an extra special touch. Taylor them to the wedding theme or colour for a lovely keepsake.

Putting money inside a card is popular gift – consider putting it in a gift envelope for that extra special touch. People have used money gifts in a themed envelope for

  • Weddings
  • Travelling expeditions and camps
  • Passing exams and graduating
  • Baby showers
  • Christmas and birthday presents

3) Lottery ticket favours

Little envelopes are an affordable ornate wedding or event favour that can hold lotto/lottery tickets.

4) Gifting printed internet vouchers.

Nowadays you can buy vouchers online – where you can print out the code for someone rather than buy a plastic throw away gift card. This might be a great way to purchase a voucher but a home printed bit of paper doesn’t exactly make a very visually attractive gift! However, print and send it inside an ornate envelope takes the gift from good to wow.

5) Chocolate gifts and favours

Little envelopes take dinner mints for guest favours and also chocolate coins – great for children’s pirate party games and treasure hunts.

6) Bereavement messages for loss of pets

The loss of a pet can be difficult – and knowing what to say can be even harder. These simple but special message envelopes can show you are thinking of them and they have a memory envelope to store things like a collar tag or other special keepsake.

7) Say congratulations

All envelopes from ohhowlovelygifts come with an ornate insert to write a special keepsake message of congratulations. Perfect for

  • Exam success
  • Passing driving tests
  • X years at work
  • Engagement
  • Birth of your baby / adoption

8) Announcements

Announcements are extra special when it involves opening an envelope! Use the ornate insert for

  • Birth announcements
  • Gender reveal
  • Pregnancy
  • Engagement
  • Holiday destination reveals for children
  • Prize winning

9) Ticket / shows gifts

Quite often people buy venue, theatre or show tickets as presents – but end up with nothing to give as they are ‘collect on the day’ only. With nothing physical to give – tell them about your gift by writing a message in a themed envelope.

10) Gift a promise

Gift a promise where a person can choose a day out or something of their choice. You can also make DIY tokens eg ‘ Redeem this for baby sitting on a night of your choosing’, ‘Redeem this for a family pizza and games/movie night’.
