Ohh Deer... It's nearly Christmas!

December seems to be going by even faster than ever this year and suddenly there are only 2 short weeks to go until the big day! With the festivities flying in fast, it is easy to let trying get organised overwhelm you and stop you from enjoying this most wonderful time of year. To try and offer a stress-busting solution to this, today my final Christmas-themed post of 2016 (you may thought the 12 I already posted as part of my 12 Days Of Blogmas series was enough Christmas content for one blogger but oh no!) is all about my favourite one-stop-shop for all your festive needs - ohhdeer.com!

Ohh Deer's extensive Christmas range includes lots of things I would expect like gifts, stationery and greetings cards as well as a few extra surprises such as baking kits...

I love this Meri Meri kit as it combines my 3 favourite things in life - illustration, cake and Christmas! I love baking and have been toying with the idea of incorporating it in to my blog for a while now and so when Ohh Deer sent over a few baking bits for me to try it gave me the perfect excuse! I really enjoyed making these Christmassy cakes (they are plain sponge with cinnamon icing in case you were wondering) and definitely plan on doing more posts like this in the new year so keep your eyes peeled for lots more cake coming this way! 

The cupcake kit contains 24 shiny cake cases and 24 illustrated cake toppers in 3 different designs, letting you add an artful twist to your festive bakes! Ohh Deer also stock some beautiful Meri Meri gift tags featuring similar reindeer and santa designs which I love! At Christmas, it is the little details that make all the difference and these adorable accessories add a little extra festive cheer to proceedings.

As I said, I love cake but even I admit it isn't enough to make a great Christmas. Let's be honest, for that, presents have to be involved too! If you have a pet-lover, illustration-addict or lazy-loafer you are struggling to find the perfect gift for, you might want to have a look at Gemma Correll's huge Ohh Deer range...

Having worked with Ohh Deer for quite some time now, Gemma's iconic black, white and red designs have now been applied to notebooks, pencils, stickers, patches and much, much more all of which you can browse here.

The people I feel best equipped to buy for at Christmas are fellow stationery lovers. For that reason, I thought I would do a mini stationery-themed gift guide, rounding up my top picks from Ohh Deer's ever-growing range....

My top papery picks: A5ish marble notebook, black cacti notebook, dark palm diary, A4ish blue marble sketchbook, A4 kraft notebook, moose greeting card and rose leaf jotter. Stationery is also a great gift as it is so easy to wrap! And if you are looking for a unique, DIY way of wrapping then why not pick up some of Ohh Deer's new washi tape range and have a look at my 6 DIY Gift Wrap Ideas post for some inspiration? 

If you are going all out and want to really earn some love from the stationery lover in your life then you could gift them a subscription to Ohh Deer's Papergang. I reviewed the September and October Papergang boxes but got too swept up in festivities to remember about November's, so here is a quick snap of the box's content...

By the way, this post was not sponsored and is made up of a mixture of things I have been sent by Ohh Deer to review, bought myself as gifts (I won't say for who incase they are reading this) or just spotted online and had to share. I really do recommend that you go and check out the Ohh Deer range as I have been super impressed by their festive offerings and love the fact you are supporting independent artists when you buy from them. And if have have seen anything you fancy then I have great news - the kind folk over at Ohh Deer have given me an exclusive discount code to share with my lovely readers:

Im now going on a little Christmas blog-hibernation so won't be posting for the next few weeks as I will be busy eating all the cakes I have made and watching Christmas movies! I hope you have the most wonderful, magical, jolly and, of course, creative Christmas ever!!!
