Lapland Letters – Magical Letters from Santa – review.
Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat…
With only 4 weeks to go I am in full on Festive mode.
I normally start my Christmas planning in September but this year working and studying full time has ensured that I have barely done a thing.
One of the things I did make sure to get done sooner rather then later was ordering a letter from Santa for the children.
As with most things Christmas, I am really fussy.
I don’t like tacky and cartoon like letters, I like something a bit more traditional.
Ideally the missive would be written on magical paper from the North Pole and written by Old St Nick himself.
I appreciate that he is rather busy around this time and so will settle for something that at least gives that vibe.
This year I ordered personalised letters from Lapland Letters who offer ten different letter themes from Santa (or Father Christmas if that’s your preference). Themes for 2020 include a Lockdown Letter, First Year of School, Baby’s First Christmas and The Meaning of Christmas alongside the ‘classics’.
Costing just £5.95, all letters come with a copy of the Secret Map Santa uses on Christmas Eve to make his way around the world.
For an additional £2.95 you can add a bumper activity pack to the letter which includes colouring sheets and games, a door hanger and a thank you card to send back to Santa. If that wasn’t quite bumper enough, the early bird special includes a treat tray, nice list certificate and countdown to Christmas.
Perfect pre-Christmas entertainment.
Personalising your child’s letter couldn’t be easier. After choosing which letter format you’d like (ideal for making sure siblings letters aren’t identical) you simply fill in some boxes with the child’s information.
Their age, their best friends name, the gift they’d like etc. and your work is almost done.
You can even specify whether your child uses ‘Santa Claus’ or ‘Father Christmas’.
The ‘PS’ can be used to include any personal achievements or special information you would like included,
“Mummy & Daddy are so pleased that you enjoy your new school” or something of that ilk.
Maybe refrain from announcing a new baby brother or sister in this bit though.
That could ruin Christmas.
Once you’ve personalised your letter and paid, the Elves take over and will send out your child’s letter in early December.
You can tick one thing off of your to do list and maybe celebrate with a small sherry.
As well as personalised letters, you can also order personalised magical extras including Mrs Claus’ Cookie Mix, Reindeer food, Magic Keys or Christmas Eve box – it really is a magical Christmas Eve on stop shop!
Prices start at £5.95 and includes delivery to anywhere in the world and are available from Santa himself via Lapland Letters.
