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

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

    • It's been a pretty slow weekend here. Hope yours has been chilled too?
    • On the blog this week, we are sharing some of our favourite digital art resources. During these times of restricted movement, it's more convenient than ever to be able to purchase artwork that can be downloaded, sent to print and frame via online framing specialists like @draftframes and delivered to your door. I'm all about the convenience factor here! Link in bio for some of our go-to's

    • I've been thinking about all the kids rooms we've designed and installed over the past few years, many of which had desks included. Unless they're kids in senior school, I usually view desks as a 'nice to have' addition if space allows. But I'm guessing those desks are getting a lot of mileage these days with Dubai schools continuing online learning until at least the end of the academic year. #crazytimes #stayhome #staysafe
    • A quiet afternoon was much needed to round off the weekend. Hope you all had a good one? Just peeking out on the left there is my new, improved @fronteriors Billy bookcase. More on that tomorrow.

    • She's been cursed with my coarse, wiry locks (that take 400 hrs to dry), if only I'd been blessed with that gorgeous colour. Suddenly wondering why I've never tried it. #hmm #maybe
    • I'm out of the house and in someone else's home and its feeling like a big adventure after so many weeks amidst the same walls. We are finally  starting to install the spaces we've designed for a family villa that we've been working on remotely for several weeks. Installation days are not what they used to be for us. This one is happening over a number of days. Fewer handymen and painters on site, masks, a safe distance and a whole lot of handwashing. Its feels strange but its definitely a step in the right direction.
    • The kitchen. It's always been the heart of the home, but over the past two months, it's been more of a command central in the home. All the cooking, baking, copious tea and coffee-making, school planning, live lesson participating, news watching (we have a TV room to the left), snack foraging.... you name it, it's been happening right here.

    • If you'd told me a few months ago that I'd spend 8 straight weeks within the confines of my home, leaving only a handful of times for essentials, I'd have laughed out loud. And that's coming from a real homebody. Life sure is unpredictable.
