There's less than three months to go...time to start thinking about Christmas!! I know it's early, but it's almost October and I think we all know how quickly the time flies past; it'll soon be the big day before we know it! Each year, I'm never quite ready for it. I'm usually the unprepared one; the one spotted rushing round the shops a few days before and baking handmade gifts until the early hours of the morning. But not this year! This time I'm going to plan ahead!
First up on my list is something of a 'tradition' in our family started by my Parents, and that is a letter from Santa Claus for my two little ones.
My Letter From Santa Claus (www.myletterfromsantaclaus.com) are based in Hertfordshire and are a very small, family owned business offering beautiful and traditional letters from Santa Claus for parents to order for their children. They offer 4 different Santa letters, starting at just £2.69 and can deliver anywhere within the UK, Ireland and the USA.
I created my letter on the company's gorgeous website, www.myletterfromsantaclaus.com. It was an easy site to navigate and use. Putting the letter together was very simple and required filling in answers to questions asked about my little one, such as their name, a big event that's happened this year, their age, etc. Within 5 minutes or so I had a beautiful, personalised letter.
The letter arrived just a few days after it had been created and was concealed in a standard envelope...perfect for ordering early and hiding until a few weeks before Christmas. The letter itself was contained in it's own, Christmas red envelope, with my eldest's name written beautifully across the front. It was also adorned with mail stamps from the north pole and a wax seal.
The letter was wonderful and was printed onto quality paper, giving it a premium product feel. It read well and was very much a personalised letter that gave the feeling that it was a 'one-off' written only for my little one. It was definitely something rather special.
Along with the letter was a stunning certificate, of equal quality, awarded to my Little Miss for making the 'Nice List.' It is a wonderful touch and something that I know my Miss will absolutely love when it's time for her to see it. There was also a 'Santa Stop Here!' colouring page included with the letter which will keep her entertained on Christmas Eve and is something she can stick in her window that night to make certain that Santa stops by.
Everything from the ease of the ordering to the beautiful, quality letter that I discovered on opening the wax sealed envelope was fantastic. It was very easy to see that My Letter From Santa Claus are a company that really care about quality and creating something incredibly special and personal. The letter, and all the brilliant extras, cost £5.69 and was wonderful value for money. This is a product I can see myself ordering, and being loved by my two cheeky monkeys, for many more Christmases to come.
