We've teamed up with The Better Brand Consultant to bring you a 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide. Over the next 12 days, we’ll be giving you considered and alternative options from within the LWL community. Each gift has been hand picked and you’ll be able to find something for everyone from the foodies to the fashionistas. And because we all love a bargain, look out for the special LWL offers and discounts which they’ve kindly offered.
In our ‘always on’ culture, there is something so satisfying about setting aside an afternoon, cranking up Destiny’s Child’s '8 Days of Christmas' and surrounding yourself with mince pies and mulled wine to get in the card writing mood.
Whether you like to keep things simple with a well worded note, or enjoy cramming in as much as possible including in-jokes, referencing moments of debauchery and perhaps including a little doodle, sending and receiving post is a little moment of joy.
So we recommend these star buys from LWL member and illustrator Cherie Jerrard, who creates “Soulful Products for a Colourful Life”. Cherie’s upbeat and vibrant designs run across wall hangings, prints and greetings cards, and are stocked in leading retailers such as Anthropologie and Papersmith’s as well her online shop.
Cherie says “I’ve never been great with words so I use pictures to express what I’d want to say. When I’m drawing I often think “what would I say to a friend?” And then I find a way to channel it into a drawing. Everyone needs to feel they matter whether it be with an affectionate kiss or a grumpy dog, we are all in this crazy life together so lets brighten it up!”
