Printable Christmas Stationery Set 2018

04/12/2018
Designing a set of free printable Christmas gift tags for you, our lovely readers and social media followers, has become somewhat of a tradition around here. With the exception of last year (and I’m not even sure what happened there), I have put out a set from the very beginning in 2013 through 2014, 2015 and 2016. It’s quite interesting to look back at the style evolution over the years. As any reliable advent calendar will tell you, Christmas is just around the corner. Which means the annual gift wrapping marathon is about to commence and we are due to deliver some printables for your downloading pleasure.

This year, we have a special edition of our gift tags. Instead of offering you just a regular graphic design, we reached our to one of our favourite illustrators, the lovely Camilla Hind, and asked her if should would be willing to do a custom illustration for this year’s gift tags. Camilla illustrates everything from custom prints, to cards and stationery and we are smitten with her work to say the least. In fact, we were so thrilled with the result of the beautiful illustration that she made just for us, that we have taken things a step further for this year and created a stationery set, including the gift tags, name cards and an editable menu template for your table settings. So we have you covered for more than just gift wrapping.

As we were all caught up in the spirit of things, we decided to pull together a festive table setting to photograph the stationery and we had such fun with it. We used a few really cute serve ware items on the table so let us know if you’d like to see more detail on that in a separate post. In the meantime, here’s a look at this year’s gift tags.

 

The name cards have been designed with a simple fold-over method and we have made sure that they look good from whatever angle you see them from at the table – be straight on or from above, it’s pretty from all sides. We also opted not to make these cards editable so that you can write the guests names for a more personal touch. It may be time to pull out the fancy pen.

 

 

Lastly, we have the menu template. Christmas dinner or lunch just got fancy schmancy. We have set the template up as a powerpoint document for easy editing and I hope that the font settings will remain in the text box. You can of course change the fonts as you wish, but if you want to keep the look as we have it in the images, be sure that the headings are set to Avenir, 8 pt and the description text below is Goudy Old Style, 9pt. For best results, print all of the documents on A4 borderless size and ensure that your printer is set to its best print quality.

We would love to see how you use these stationery bits for your own festivities. Please share them on social media using the hashtag #HOHXmas 

Here are the links to the three printable documents: gift tags | name cards | menu

You will need:

  • Cardstock of at least 180gsm (we used a watercolour paper stock)
  • Single hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon, cord or embroidery cotton

    • These Rร–NNINGE chairs are new at @ikeauae and we're wild about their elegant simplicity. In fact, therevare a few new items that have caught our eye there recently so we've rounded up some favourites on houseofhawkes.com. link in bio. #ikea #favourites
    • Can we call it a day yet? #home #evening #winetime
    • It started with a conversation over lunch that went something like this: 'so these custom doors and tops that we're forever making for clients, we should probably just make more and sell them because everyone always asks where we got them'... hmm, 'seems like a perfectly reasonable plan for two people already overwhelmed by their workload. Yalla, let's do it!' And then there was the #billyhack that accelerated our @fronteriors launch plans. Read all about my exciting new business venture with @liveloudgirl on the blog. Link in profile.
    • Walking our the door with a long to do list ahead of me, including a stop to pick up Ethan's new passport that I applied for early September 2018. Better late than never, eh!? In case you missed the news about my design collaboration with @helmiibeds there's a post on the blog with all the details - and it's available to shop online if you're in the market for an awesome new bed with a handy removable cover! ๐Ÿ“ท by @marli_smithphotography #helmiiXhouseofhawkes #bedslipcover #removablebedcover #bedroomstyling #bedroomdecor #houseofhawkes

    • I'm taling the kids on an overnight mini vacay to Ras Al Khaimah today, although they've talked it up to something substantially more glamorous... and now it's raining. Really, weather?! Anyhoo, how cute is this room? Our refreshed website is live and a tour of this space will be on there soon. But first, the mini-break. ๐Ÿ“ท by @marli_smithphotography

    • Bed. That's where the party's at for me tonight. I can feel a cold coming at me like a freight train so I'm dosing myself and catching some early zzz's. This room though, and that afternoon light, from our styling sesh at casa @whitemossdecor is giving me good vibes. Night night insta family.
