Christmas has landed at Polly and Me!!!

It is one of our favourite seasons as we get to create so many wonderful pieces! From our handwritten gift tags to creating beautiful menus and place settings for the Christmas dinner table. But it doesn’t end there. Over the past few years our Christmas range has really grown and we now have some super popular products that are a sell out each year. These make great personal treats for the home as well as wonderful gifts for friends, family and teachers. 

Here are a few of our most popular. If you are interested in placing an order for any, get your orders in soon as not only do they sell out, but we need to allow time for personalisation in time for Christmas. Our last order date is 12th December for christmas deliver

Letters From Santa

Letters from Santa
letters from Santa

See your Childs face light up when they get a letter back from Santa. With their name hand written, a reindeer watermarked letter written on a type writer at the North Pole and signed by the man himself they are sure to get excited. 

Each personalised letter comes folded inside a Navy envelope, sealed with a wax stamp baring the initials SC, your child's name hand written on the front and tied with golden twine. 

This then comes presented in a white posting box, with stamps from the North Pole Sorting office, tied with red ribbon and a wooden Gingerbread man baring your child's initial. The address on the front is written exactly how the man himself would describe your house. 

Personalised Modern Calligraphy Family Star

A free standing star adorned with Modern Calligraphy in your choice of words. Each star is Wooden, with a beautiful grain and then hand painted to order. 

These make the perfect gift for someone else, or just the ideal festive adornment for your own home.

Personalised Handmade Ceramic Bauble

The perfect keepsake Christmas bauble to stand the test of time. 

Each bauble is handmade from Slip Porcelain by Sophie Jarram and then hand written with Modern Calligraphy in your choice of words and adorned with real leather string for hanging.

Early Birds Christmas Gift Ideas

Polly & Me HOMEAlexandra WhittemoreComment

As we are all aware, Christmas is creeping up on us! I saw an online countdown marker the other day, and I'm sorry to break it to you if you were not already aware, but we have gone past the 100-day countdown point! If you are an early bird and like to get your Christmas shopping done early, I can image this time is crucial for you.

I have promised myself that I will try to be a little more organised with my shopping this year too, so with that in mind I though I would put together a little Christmas guide featuring our HOME range that could be bought as a gift for a Christmas wedding, a gift simply for a loved one’s home or a treat for yourself!

This features our usual Polly and Me ranges, but we are soon to have our festive range joining the collection very soon. 

Candles

Our Luxury, stylish candles are made in fragrances, and you can choose from four different designs. Each candle is filled using eco-friendly soy wax and has a wooden wick. They look gorgeous, smell amazing and the wooden wick makes a lovely crackling sound as it burns.  The white frosted glass candle is adorned with a handwritten modern calligraphy design. It also comes with a copper lid which can act as a base to stand the candle in.

Each candle is presented in a white box and makes the perfect gift.

"Lime, Basil and Mandarin"

"Honeysuckle and Jasmine"

And you have the choice of 4 Phrases:

"Be You"

"Be Kind"

"Let's Stay Home"

"Our Happy Place”

Prints

Our stunning modern calligraphy in wall art form would make the perfect gift for someone special, or maybe just for you! 

We have 6 pieces of letterpressed Polly and Me original artwork to choose from, all printed on white card. Each piece is individually pressed with light grey ink, using traditional letterpress machinery. These prints would look great in any room of the house.

Mugs

We have a range of 5 elegantly shaped Bone China mugs, with the 22ct golden designs printed from original hand written modern calligraphy by Polly and Me. 

You can choose from the following designs:

'Tea, Always Tea'

'Just One More'

'First Cup of the Day, Honestly'

'Definitely Not Prosecco’

These mugs are the perfect addition to your kitchen cupboard, but also make a great gift too. Why not fill the mug with the recipients favourite chocolates before wrapping to add that extra touch?
