Royal Mail has been issuing Christmas Stamps every year since 1966, and itís fair to say that they are now a much-loved part of the festive season. we are delighted to announce a Madonna and Child theme for Christmas 2013. These have been created using details taken from Madonna and Child paintings down the ages and across many cultures, including the newly commissioned Neo-Coptic style stamp, painted by Fadi Mikhail.
When we announced our first Christmas Stamp Design Competition for 30 years, the nationís 4-11 year-olds did us proud. They entered 240,000 pictures, from which we picked two fabulous festive designs as the winners.
Itís that special time of year again, when we all start looking forward to the festive season. We have brought together our biggest ever selection of gift ideas, making it easier than ever for you to find the perfect present for all of the special people in your life.
