Your first Christmas as a couple is a wonderful moment of sharing traditions and also creating new traditions and memories. How beautiful then to have a unique Christmas tree decoration to celebrate the year it all began.
These stunning penguins start as a wooden card, with space for your own personalised message amongst the stars above the love birds. The pair of penguins then "pop out" of their wooden surround to become a gorgeous Christmas decoration to put on the tree each year.
The watercolour Emperor penguins were hand-painted by Betsy. A great choice for a couple's decoration as Penguins mate for life and travel thousands of miles to return to their loved ones after the hunting season. If you're curious then you can see a time-lapse of the process over on Instagram.
The whole card is UV printed directly onto sustainable poplar plywood creating a wonderfully unique Christmas greeting card.
A wonderful card and gift combined and so perfect for a couple's first Christmas together, or any Christmas really.
The wooden card is presented in a white slide-open gift box, so it makes a fabulous card/gift to send to family and loved ones that you might not see over the festive period.
We've found a great and sustainably sourced poplar ply for this personalised Christmas decoration from some wonderful timber merchants practically on our doorstep. It means we can keep our carbon footprint low which is really important to us. The Christmas decoration comes with a length of gold ribbon to make the penguins ready to hang on your tree.
As a natural product, there may be some variations in the colour and texture of the wood, including thinner or thicker growth patterns from the tree and the odd knot or burr in the wood. This is what makes natural wood so beautiful and is part of the product, not a flaw.

The personalised Christmas card measures 12 x 12cm and the penguin hanging decoration measures approximately 8 x 8cm.
