The other day I sent out a blast on Twitter* asking if anyone had any clue where I might buy some Christmas cards, with the proceeds going to an Irish charity, working in Ireland. It was a tough call, because while there are loads of Irish charities making Christmas cards, a lot of them are working abroad, and a further lot of them are (and here I’m sure I’m going straight to hell) not quite as slick as I’d like my Christmas cards to be.

So when Darren Kennedy suggested I check out Brown Thomas’s selection, I was all ears (or eyes, as it happens).

The selection includes designs by Victoria Beckham (above), Tiffany & Co, Lulu Guinness, Lanvin and more, and all proceeds to go the ISPCC. I like these cards, especially the Beckham design which I feel is one of the most . . . um, stylishly grown up perhaps? BUT, the cards are three for €10, which is pricey by anyone’s budget. (I want to give to charity but I don’t want to be simultaneously ripped off.) AND I’d kind of like to get a whole load of vaguely matching-but-different cards. What do you think? Will you be forking out?
