Just A Card Christmas Gift Guide 2017

By Sarah Cowan

At Christmas it can be a challenge to find the perfect gift for your loved ones. You want to choose something you know they’ll love. But if you also want your gifts to be unique and original, then we can help!

I’ve spent many happy hours picking my favourite card and gift ideas from the hundreds of entries we received. You’ll find my top picks from forty artists, designers, makers and galleries below. There are in four categories - Christmas cards, gifts under £15, gifts under £50 and gifts under £100, along with the all important information you’ll need to find out where to buy them.

As you may know, the Just a Card campaign is wholly run by a team of volunteers. We all have our own businesses or jobs alongside the work we do promoting independent designer makers. So this year we’re inviting you to Christmas with the Just a Card team as we also bring you a selection of the things that we, the Just a Card team, design and make in our businesses.
