How to make Christmas magical for 2022

Happy December everyone! The countdown to Christmas has begun and we’re very excited to put up our Christmas tree, crack open our advent calendar and wear our festive jumpers with pride. For many this year, the cost of living crisis has led to a tightening of Christmas budgets and so we’re here to help you keep the magic of the holiday season alive without breaking the bank. After all, Christmas isn’t about gifts but making precious memories with your loved ones!

There are lots of inexpensive ways to spread that festive feeling but here’s a few of our favourites:

1. Christmas Cards

Of course, the top of our list has to be the act of sending Christmas cards! For as little as 99p, you can reach out to someone you love to let them know that you’re thinking of them during the holidays.

Want to spread festive cheer far and wide?

Our packs and boxes of Christmas cards are fantastic value. You can find a pack of 5 cards for only £1.99 (40p per card!), perfect for sending to friends, work colleagues and neighbours. We also stock many Charity Christmas Cards that help support over 30 important causes, why not let your money go a little further this year?

The weather outside is frightful, but our online cards are so delightful…

With petrol costs, rail strikes and potentially a reappearance of the Beast From The East, why not stay wrapped up and shop online this year. With FREE UK delivery and same day dispatch, you can relax and wait for the cards to come to your doorstep. Just remember to order early to avoid delays due to the upcoming Royal Mail postal strikes.

2. Christmas Gifts

Another way of spreading festive cheer is by picking out a gift that will make your loved one smile. With our ‘Quick Search’ tool, you can specify the exact style, theme and budget of the gift you’re looking for. Whether that’s stocking filler gifts under £5 or secret santa ideas less than £10, we have lots to choose from!

After all, a gift that involves heartfelt thought is far more valuable than the one with a big price tag. This could mean a bookmark for a friend who loves to spend time reading in the garden or a notebook for the brother who always forgets. The effort you put into finding something special is the gift that will warm their heart this year.

3. Letter From Santa

Our favourite gift for your little ones this year is our Personalised Handwritten Letter From Santa. This gorgeous idea allows you send a special message from Father Christmas himself, straight from the North Pole.

The spectacular 3D Pop Up card design will mesmerize their imagination… Something this special could only be made by the elves in Santa’s workshop!

Add unique details like ‘thank you for the carrot you left for Rudolph last year’ for a personal touch that truly brings the magic of Christmas alive. For only £3.99 (and with free UK delivery) we hope that this thoughtful gift will be an inexpensive way to help make your child’s Christmas as magical as those we remember when we were younger.

4. Christmas Stamps

Brand new for 2022, this range of stamps are the perfect festive touch to add to your Christmas cards. The extra special nativity themed designs will stand out amongst their mail and let them know that a very merry surprise is waiting inside.

Join us on Festive Friday on 2nd December when we’ll be writing and sending our own cards across the country.

5. Christmas Homeware

It’s officially time to transform your home into a winter wonderland! With a few special cosy touches, you’ll never want to leave home again during those cold, dark days of December. We have new candles for 2022 that smell just like Christmas morning, cosy socks to keep your feet toasty and special ornaments ready for you to deck the halls.

We hope that these Christmas ideas help to make your holiday season even more magical!

Let us know if you use any of the ideas by tagging us in your photos on social media. You can find us at @lovekatescards
