You know it's Christmas when...

What marks the start of the festive season for you? Maybe it’s when you hear Mariah, Boney M or Bandaid on the radio. Or – if you’re in the UK – it may be when you spot the Coca Cola “holidays are coming” Christmas truck publicity on TV, first launched way back in 1995.

Or maybe the first screening of the department store John Lewis’s Christmas advertisement, which has become something of a tradition.


Many of us have a special connection to something that sparks the Christmas spirit. Well, here at Bawah Reserve HQ it’s all about the Christmas card. Our creative director never fails to amaze with her brilliant and unique Bawah Christmas card designs, and each year we look forward to the grand reveal.

So, we thought we’d take a moment to share with you our past four years of truly spectacular
Christmas cards.


2021
The snow globe

FINAL-PRINT-BR-christmas-card-collage-2021-125x125mm-2021_Page_1
A beautiful tropical island-inspired take on the Christmas snow globe. It contains all the things
we most love about Bawah – sailing boats, the seaplane, the jetty and our overwater bungalows, plus birds, sea stars, turtles, corals and other flora and fauna.


2020
The animated starlit jetty

Bang in the middle of the pandemic, we went for a digital animation showing the starlit jetty under the moon, including a guest appearance by Santa.

 

2019
The Christmas tree of life

 

bawah-christmas2019-animation
The Bawah logo represents the tree of life, topped with a bird and incorporating coral, fish and a
sea star. Here, our Christmas tree of life wove in more detail with beautiful illustrations of the
islands’ flora, fauna and leisure activities.


2018
The coral Christmas tree

BAF Xmas Card
A coral restoration process featured in the 2018 card, along with an important pledge to plant 50
coral tree nurseries. Amounting to 300 new staghorn corals, this promised hope for better, healthier, and richer marine life in the Anambas Archipelago.

 

Which one is your favourite?  We’d love to know! – drop us a note at georgina@bawahreserve.com
