The Twelve Giftees of Christmas... SPECIAL EDITION

Unsure of what to buy for someone in your life? Rock and Wrap's "The Twelve Giftees of Christmas" can help. Or, at least help you add more things to YOUR holiday wishlist.

It seems we have overlooked the fact that maybe you have not purchased your holiday cards yet this year. Want to escape from the sea of chubby santas and preach-y angels? Fear not. In this special edition of Rock and Wrap's Holiday Rundown, we bring you the We Card list. Get ready to go from not enough choices to a choice overload...

Feeling a little mod this christmas? Retro is in, so why not go for it. These unusually shaped cards from Velocity will stand out in a sea of blah rectangular envelopes. Plus, they're inexpensive and come in tons of different styles.

Keeping with the retro theme, we bring you Toast Event Design ('s funky holiday bottle cap magnet cards. Phew! There sure are alot of adjectives in that one. The truly great thing about this card though, apart from its striking design, is the fact that the bottle cap magnet can be used long after the card has been tossed, for years to come. It's like, the gift that keep on giving. Or something.

I know, i know! I've already talked about Luxe Paperie. But everything there is so super cute! I couldn't hold it in. Plus, the fabitty-fab people down at Luxe even were nice enough to give us a "Happy Holidays" card for our non-denominational friends. We cannot let goodness like that go unnoticed.

What else could we expect from the folks at MoMA? Nothing less than brilliance, i assure you. And we are not dissapointed. For some reason this webpage is in Japanese (i THINK it's in Japanese... really must brush up on these things) but luckily it's also in English so you all should be able to order without any problems. But before you take OUR word for it, just browse the page. Every card is unexpected and clever, and most are either die-cut or pop-up. What's not to love?

Looking for something a bit more modern? There's nothing more modern than these shiny silver cards from John Lewis. They come in assorted boxed sets, but frankly i love every style. While being modern, they still retain stylish, classic graphics... and i think that's important.

Enough choices for you? Haha, not quite. Being a very graphics-oriented person, i adore these cards from Soohoo On Paper. And i love that they're printed on recycled paper. The inside of this particular model features a primitive christmas tree drawing, just to sum up the crayon theme. I also rather like the simple stripes .

And that, my friends, is a lifetime worth of stylish papercuts.
