According to research, Christmas Eve is the most popular day of the year to get engaged and in a recent survey 31% of participants decided on the 24th December compared to only 12% for Valentine's Day!

And I'm sure that comes as no surprise, if you, like many, saw the New Year in with endless tweets and snapchats of gigantic diamond rings and smiley faces as your nearest and dearest finally got engaged.

Our popular entwined letters engagement card is a great way to congratulate the newly engaged couple. The initials are cut out of birch plywood, which is an eco-friendly and durable material. The surface of the wood on the ampersand is engraved on to, with your special message to the couple, or simply the date they got engaged.
The wooden motif is then attached to the card, which is made from 100% recycled materials with satin ribbon. You can choose the colour of both the card and ribbon from our selection. The cream is a lovely option as you can see the speckled texture which shows it is made from recycled paper.
