A few days before Christmas, an early present (from me, to me) arrived on my doorstep in the form of the December Papergang box. I had been wondering what Ohh Deer might conjure up for Decemeber's box as - although, as I said in my Ohh Deer... It's Nearly Christmas! post, they are kings of Christmas - by the time it arrived on the 22nd of December, even the most unorganised of stationery addict had their Christmas cards and wrap sorted. Ohh Deer have toed this line beautifully, serving up a box of paper good which feel suitably festive without being full on Christmas-themed. There are no reindeer or Santas in sight, but the homely motifs which feature across almost all of the box's contents definitely bring the warmth and comfort of this wonderful time of year!
December's box was (much to my excitement) a little bigger than the usual box and it was filled to the brim with tactile, papery goodness. The box included an A5 exercise book (£2.95), an A4ish plain notebook (£4.95), an A5 notepad (£4.95), a riso-printed January calendar (£1.95) and a die-cut concertina house (£4.95) all designed by Megan Davies as well as a "Biscat" greetings card designed by Sophie Corrigan and an adorable wooly-hatted bear greetings card designed by Jamie Mitchell.
Like the last few boxes, this selection of stationery all has a visual theme - this time being quaint little houses. The most unique and adorable house-themed products was a tiny little laser cut, concertina house. This also happens to be my top pick from the box as I love adding festive touches to the home right up until the big day and this miniature addition added a whole lot of charm.
As someone who is as addicted to Christmas as they are to stationery, I would have gotten over it if Ohh Deer had gone full on Christmas with this box but this festive offering turned out to be even better! Getting a little sentimental for a second, reindeer, snowmen and Santas are all well and good but these tiny little welcoming homes capture the community aspect of Christmas (i.e. what it's all really about!) much, much better!
