Guest writer Emma Jeffery of Hello Beautiful visits the Spoonflower blog again this week for another sweet and simple holiday gift idea for family and close friends, a festive photo throw pillow featuring a Christmas letter for a fresh update to a well-loved holiday tradition.
The lovely tradition of sending Christmas cards and annual Christmas letters has been around for centuries, but this year I changed things up and will be sending a personalized Christmas pillow — complete with a holiday photo on the front and a handwritten letter on the back! I’m a huge fan of using handwriting rather than typed text at any opportunity. It’s so much more personal and meaningful, and childrens handwriting in particular captures a special moment in the life of a rapidly growing child.
This Christmas letter pillow is bound to become a cherished gift for absent relatives, and since it can be brought back out year after year, it has more longevity than a card. (Though cards are nice too!)
Here’s how to make your own :

For all of you celebrating Christmas next week, Merry Christmas from the team here at Spoonflower. Our last rush packages have just gone out for delivery Monday, and the holiday buzz is already starting to fade a bit. Tomorrow we'll settle back in to a quieter pace of work for the next week or two. We're looking back on a lovely and eventful year — which included a move to a new office for us and the addition of more than fifteen new Spoonflorists to the team, as well as the launch of custom wall paper and wall decals — and looking forward to a creative new one. We're looking forward to seeing you in 2013!
