Boost your loved ones’ spirit with these painterly pick-me-ups. Pairing inky backgrounds with lettering in various finishes, our wall hangings are truly mesmerising and make for the ideal gift to send this Christmas. Go for faux lettering by playing around with shadows, try metallic effects with acrylic paints or simply print out your chosen quote, trace and cut out with a craft knife.

5. Personalise it

Send a bespoke present and you’re seriously onto a winner! We’re all huge fans of the personalisation trend, but this year the craze is going to be bigger than ever before. Take a leaf out of Sarah Louise Matthews’ book with her exquisitely engineered paper botanical monogram. Made from individual papercuttings, be sure to box it up well before you send to avoid the pieces getting damaged. Check out more of Sarah’s works of wonders at sarahlouisematthews.com.
