Ever since emails overtook letters, the post has rather lost its sparkle - it's always bills and junk mail. But not at Christmas - no, suddenly, beautiful handwritten cards scatter the doormat.
So you can only imagine the beauties we get at ELLE HQ, where the cards come from fashion's biggest designers. Well, imagine no more - we've picked out some of our favourites from this year.
We loved this print on Christopher Kane's dresses, and now we love it on our mantelpiece too.
Sometimes the simplest designs are the best ones - like this bright red Monica Vinader card.
This quirky dress-up card is the next best thing to actually getting a pair of Charlotte Olympia shoes under the tree.
