A puffin themed Christmas tree ornament to send to family and friends overseas. This is the perfect letterbox gift for sending love across the miles to those who are far away in miles but close in your heart.

This decoration has been designed with those who are far apart in mind and was inspired by that cute little bird - the puffin.

When I learnt that puffins spend most of the year out at sea, returning to land and their burrow for only a few months of the year, and usually the same burrow, I couldn't help but think how similar that was to the life of those who moved far from home or to another country. It's hard to be apart from family and friends, especially at Christmas, and this thoughtful card and ornament combo can really bring a smile to your loved ones face year upon year as the decoration is hung on the tree.

The ornament features two puffins, one giving the gift of a Christmas bauble to the other and both are perched on a banner. The banner reads "Far Apart but close in heart", and the card is printed with further message reading "Sending Love Across the Miles". The ornament is available individually or on a greeting card. It's light weight and flat making it easy to post. The puffin's are a digital college of an illustration and my ink paintings. The design was then printed onto birch plywood and threaded with red satin ribbon.

The back of the ornament can also be personalised with a name or a family name. It can be personalised with a message too but please contact me via Etsy Convos/Etsy Messages for a quote before ordering and to check that the message is possible (the text size can't be too small).
