Alexander Girard and Flensted Dove Decorations

twentytwentyone’s selection of classic and contemporary Christmas decorations for the approaching festive season includes a flock of birdlife.

Alexander Girard’s stamped metal Dove ornament (above right) reflects the designer’s fascination with folk art motifs, while Flensted’s Love Dove (above left) offers a Scandinavian take on the traditional harbinger of peace and love at Christmas time.

The Robin is another Christmas stalwart, whether you opt for Lisa Jones’ cheery cut-out Christmas robin or Mikael Nilsson’s expressive hand-carved miniature avian sculpture.

If your preference is for festive fauna Lisa Jones has added a Polar bear hanging decoration(below left) and a Festive feline Christmas card (below right) to her collection of characterful seasonal designs.

Other Christmas creatures currently in-store and online are of a more magical and distinctly Nordic variety.

Lovi’s impish little Elf is a self-assembly, free-standing decoration that can be sent as a postcard. It also makes a great stocking filler.

While Flensted’s charming Pixies in the Forest mobile presents traditional Scandinavian sprites in their natural habitat.

If your taste tends more to the traditional with a twist, Cut and Make’s Bauble Christmas Cardand Lovi’s Spruce tree offer an ingenious take on some seasonal essentials.

Also present are contemporary graphic interpretations of festive regulars such as Christmas trees and baubles: Paul Farrell’s King Tree card (below left) and Cut and Make’s Red Bauble card (below right) with cut out detailing that can be folded to create a variety of visual effects.

Still seasonal but perhaps less traditional are Esme Winter’s Blue Dancers card (below left) and Stefi Orazi’s Modernist London Winter greetings cards (below right) which recast the traditional Christmas snow scene with six modernist London landmarks.

Some of our cards double as decorations, making them a gift in themselves.

Both Lovi’s Christmas Tree postcard and the Robin Christmas decoration by Lisa Jones come flat-packed for ease of sending. Once received, they can be assembled to make delightful and striking festive ornaments.

Finally, for those who receive as well as send Christmas cards, a letter opener is a seasonal essential.

Enzo Mari’s refined Ameland paper knife is a perfectly balanced, elegant and functional desk accessory that is a delight to use, all year round.
