— Christmas gifts

It can be daunting to think up creative client Christmas gifts. For those of us living in the Southern Hemisphere, Christmas is warm, not cold. We’re having relaxed Summer holidays, not Winter chills. The traditional imagery of snowflakes, candlelight and red fluffy hats doesn’t make sense.

Over the last ten years, we’ve designed quite a few Christmas gifts. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking creatively, from simple cards to elaborate productions.

1. Desk calendar

The gift that keeps giving for a year. Make it a theme that your client will love and they’ll be reminded of you for the next 12 months.

In the calendar below, two friendly pixelated characters remind us that ‘it’s okay’ to have good and bad days, to feel like shutting out the world occasionally, and that ever super heros need downtime.

2. Cocktail recipe coasters

Letterpress printed on a heavy, cotton-rich paper to avoid spills.

The green/red colour combination is subtle, but it still feels Christmas-y. 

3. Tea towels & film puns

Celebrating two of our favourite things: A night at the cinema & typographic puns.

A tribute to classic 1990s films : Neil Jordan’s The Crying Game & Gus Van Sant’s To Die For

4. Letter cards

Choose-your-own from a range of decorative letter cards.

Small in size, big in impact.

5. Colourful wall calendar

White icons highlight favourite holidays, sporting events, dates to remember and cultural celebrations. 

Printed at 2400 dots-per-inch for stunning colour reproduction.

6. Double-sided wrapping paper

Christmas on one side. Party on the other = wrapping paper suitable for any occasion.

Re-usable, environmentally friendly, easy to post.

7. A simple card

Get straight to the point. A clear message, with a touch of wit and a load of personality. 

Pick a matching envelope for exceptional first impressions.

Typographic card with a turquoise background. Text reads : I wish you very Merry Christmas. A Happy Day. Brand New year 2012
