Spreading a Little Festive Cheer with Me & McQ

Sending Christmas cards is one of the most delightful festive traditions. It's right up there with decorating the tree, baking cookies, or watching our favourite festive film with a streaming cup of hot chocolate. 

Whilst the number of Christmas cards being sent has fallen over the years, there just seems to be something delightfully nostalgic about sending your loved ones a handwritten message in a beautifully crafted holiday card. We might live in an age of digital communication, but we are not ready to let go of the handwritten card quite yet.

With the arrival of the first of December, its time to prepare for Christmas cards from friends and family coming through the letterbox so you can get ready to adorn your homes with a sprinkling of festive cheer. But it does also mean that it is time to choose some festive cards to send out into the post for my loved ones. And what better way to make a statement via post than with a luxury Christmas card? 

Me & McQ has some of the most beautiful designed 3D greeting cards, winning two prestigious Louie Awards for their efforts along the way, and is now the UK’s leading producer of stand-up cards. The maker believes that greeting cards are for more than just a moment, but a gift and keepsake that family and friends can keep in their home or place on their shelves, to cherish for years to come.

Every exquisite cards has been carefully crafted by a small team of paper engineers and illustrators to create something that is much more than a card. The 2023 Christmas Collection includes 12 beautiful new designs, from the traditional to the whimsical with a variety of laser cut pop-up Christmas cards with some available in 3D version. Some of the designs include Santa's Cat Sleigh topped high with presents, Cinderella's Carriage, or may even spot an adorable Jack Russell in the The Christmas Hut. There is also Santa's Train setting out to deliver gifts, a London double decker bus busy with festive animals, as well as a Tartan Christmas CarSilent Night and a Gingerbread House

There are so many wonderful design to choose from that it will be hard for you to choose which ones are your favourite. Our favourites include Silent Night which is another beautiful Reuben McHugh illustration brings to life a frosty night deep in the countryside. A joyful red fox leaps amongst the snow as all the birds and animals enjoy the frosty night. Snug and warm in the stone cottage, the winter moon shining bright on the snowy crisp ground as a hoot from an owl pierces the silence.

You will also find a brand new book on their website called Let It Snow which would make a really unique and loveable stocking filler complete with it's own fabric gift bag and tag ready to drop into a lucky Christmas stocking.

The season of snowy paw prints has swept over an idyllic country village, and a little cat is about to face a big change. This brilliantly illustrated gift book, the perfect size to sneak into a Christmas stocking, or perhaps a Christmas Eve Basket is a beautiful way to share a moment of seasonal joy with loved ones this year. Beautifully illustrated by Reuben McHugh this stunning picture book is written by Lauren Everdell.
