Delivered by Santa & the team at Lapland Mailroom, I think they look really special. So much detail has been put into them, even down to the stamp.
It was super easy to order the letters as it’s all done online. There are four options, each telling a slightly different tale about Father Christmas’ preparations for his big day, and each personalised.
For Little Mister I chose Letter #1, which I thought was slightly easier for him to attempt to read on his own. I do like the personalisation aspect. You can choose if they letter is from Santa or Father Christmas; in Letter #1 you can make reference to friends & family, what the child wants for Christmas and a ‘P.S section’ where you can add whatever proud moment you like.
For Mademoiselle, who is still a big believer at the age of 9yo, I went for letter #3 as it has a little more detail. I personalised it to include where we will be staying for Christmas and what was left out for Father Christmas last year, as well as what she wants & references to her best friend!
We received the £7.95 pack, which comes with a letter, an activity card & a Good Child certificate. You can pay an extra £1 for a Christmas activity pack. We didn’t because we’re inundated with Christmassy art…I’m sure I’m not the only one!
The Good Child certificate Made. Their. Day!
It’s such a lovely little touch which made both of the Little Shires very proud of themselves.
For any child, to be “officially” told you’re on Father Christmas’ good list must be like winning the lottery.
It was lovely watching my boy read his certificate *V proud mummy moment* and see the message sink in & take hold.
Easy online ordering is important to me because time is so precious this time of year & I don’t want to be spending hours personalising a letter. Honestly, it took me approx 10 minutes start to finish, and that includes the freestyling section.
For me, Christmas is all about keeping the magic alive and spurring on the imagination of the children for as long as they want it. These letters from Lapland Mailroom help fuel this. They’re beautifully created, the letter writing feels very warm with lovely, personalised interjections.
If you’d like Father Christmas/Santa to send your little one a letter,Lapland Mailroom is keeping its doors open until 19 December 2016.
Disclosure: we were gifted two letters from Lapland Mailroom in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own, honest & true.
