XMAS 2015 - marks & spencer

Now December has arrived lots of peoples thoughts will turn to Christmas cards and wrapping paper and today I wanted to select a few highlights from UK High Street store Marks & Spencer. They have a few choice contemporary designs including a wrapping paper kit (below) with a graphic tree print on kraft paper, neon ribbon and baubles mixed with confetti dots. I've also picked out some card designs and a folky floral on giftwrap and tags.

XMAS 2015 - superdrug

 Next up we have some cute characters on Christmas packaging spotted in Superdrug. The range is called Sweet Snuggles and features a whole range of gift products illustrated with sweet woodland and winter characters.

XMAS 2015 - one must dash

If you have no room for a Christmas tree you might like these art prints from One Must Dash. Described as being less hassle than a real tree they are aimed at people who are tired of traditional Christmas decorations. Designers Anki Josefsson and Anneli Sandström have produced two yuletide prints, Christmas is Golden and the DIY poster One Two Tree, to which you apply circular stickers to ‘dress’ your tree. Available in neon magenta, matte silver or multicolour. As seen online here at One Must Dash.
