  • Christmas Delivery - This card features Santa climbing amongst the roofs of London delivering his presents, with snow falling around him. The card is matt, with gold glitter detailing around the lights of the Christmas tree and windows.
  • Snowmen’s party – SOLD OUT – This card is a jolly celebration with the snowmen having a great time partying in the snow! So much so, the cards have danced their way out of our offices and into the hands of many of our supporters!
  • The Village Shop - This alluring design is our new personalised card this year with a wintery village scene, featuring Southampton Hospital Charity as the name of the shop sign, and our logo has also been placed on the shop door.
  • The Nativity - This attractive card captures the nativity scene perfectly with the birth of Jesus, three kings, and shepherds. It features the words “I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.”


Additional Christmas Packs:

  • Classmate packs – Each pack contains 30 cards, with five cards of six different designs. This also includes a teacher’s card so you can thank them for the work done this term!
  • Santa kit – Each pack contains a letter to Santa with envelope, reindeer food and a ‘Santa stop’ door hanger.
  • Reindeer food – Kids love this magical mixture of glitter and oats. Sprinkle the reindeer food on Christmas Eve to guide Santa’s sleigh to your home, and help the reindeer on their way.
