Whether you’re looking to buy a card for a loved one, work wife or your nearest and dearest, pick a funny one. 

Sending a card or a thank-you note is not only a British tradition, but it’s also a lovely, heartfelt gesture, too.

So why not then for Christmas this year, send a card that packs a punch and one that your partner, friend or whomever will want to display for all to see.

From Paperchase to Scribbler, plenty of brands have penned some witty options to make us all open an envelope and laugh this December.

But you’ll have to act fast as Royal Mail has announced its post deadline: Tuesday 18 for second class mail and Thursday 20 for first class mail.

Hop to it, and pick a card below to add a smile to someone special this festive season.
