It’s the most wonderful time of the year… well, once all the decorating and planning’s done, that is. If you’re anything like us, you often fall behind on sending out your Christmas cards in time, your Christmas tree ornaments are in need of a dire upgrade, and you struggle year after year looking for something as simple as mistletoe. To avoid any festive frustration this year, we planned ahead and scouted out the best places to pick up a bit of tinsel and something for your tree. Godspeed mamas, you’ll have the jolliest Christmas party décor in no time!

Christmas Cards

Kikki.K
No matter what time of year it is, a visit to a kikki.K store never fails to see us squealing in delight. This Christmas, the brand delivers once again. Inspired by kikki.K founder Kristina Karlsson’s childhood Christmases spent in Sweden, kikki.K’s Christmas Collection of cards, decorations, trimmings and more brings the idea of a Swedish white Christmas to life. You can buy cards in a pack of 10 ($19.90), or individual pieces from $5.90, to $12.90 for the 3D pop-up card pictured above.

ION Orchard #B2-53  Singapore 238801 Tel: (+65) 6509 3107 

The Letter J Supply
Singapore-based calligraphy and papergoods artisan The Letter J Supply doesn’t disappoint if you’re looking for calligraphy-based cards. They do customisations as well.

100 Beach Road, Shaw Towers #02-38 Singapore 189702. Open Saturdays 2pm – 9pm, or by appointment via [email protected]

The Paper Bunny
Instagram-famous stationer The Paper Bunny is not just known for flatlays on Instagram. Their products, which range from greeting cards to notebooks, are made of good paper stock so your scribbling will never bleed. They’ve just launched a limited pre-order for a box of eight Christmas cards with matching lined envelopes ($32.90) for an extra touch of luxury and surprise.

PEEPnPRESS
These cards may be generic, but they’re ridiculously adorable and add a little local flavour – quite literally – to your holiday cards. Brainchild of local illustrator Natalie Kwee, these cards from her Shiok Sonnets collection have quirky illustrations accompanied by little poems like “You are the chicken to my rice, life with you is just not nice” as an homage to her home. These generic cards are also perfect for recipients who are a little iffy about associating themselves with religious holidays! PEEPnPRESS also does custom illustrations and cards.

Prints
Prints keeps it simple, so it’s a perfect place to pick up cards for your colleagues and distant relatives that you’re not close to but are obligated to get cards for anyway. Check out their range of  wrapping paper and gift bags as well.
