My word what a month this has been! I’m now ten days behind on uploading and we’ve got two days left until Christmas Day is here! I’m going to be uploading as many as I can for you!
I am so excited to be sharing this one with you because it reminds me of my childhood.
I was kindly gifted these products in order to produce this post. Although all items are gifted, all opinions remain my own.
Bringing the magic of Christmas back
I received two letters for my step brother and step sister, Charlie and Chloe. They were produced by https://www.laplandletters.co.uk who were absolutely brilliant!
When I was a child I would write to Santa who would then send me a letter back, and I would be ecstatic! As I grew up, I slowly lost my faith, it wasn’t just down to age, it was down to the fact my Gran told me that Santa didn’t exist when I was seven!
This year is the first year that they are part of the family, I wanted to make it special for them, so when I saw the opportunity to get the magic of Christmas back, not only for myself, but for them too (they’ve never had a step family before, I know that spending a Christmas in a house that isn’t your own with family that isn’t directly yours can be very awkward and sometimes uncomfortable).
They received a letter each, personalised to them too. It included their age, who their friends were, what they left for Santa last year. It really was a beautiful letter and I am so thankful that they were able to be apart of this.
On the back of the letter was a map for them to be able to track Santa too. It wasn’t just a letter they received, they received
- A letter from Santa
- Activity card and thank you Santa postcard
- Activity sheets and door hanger
- Santa please stop here poster
- Personalised certificate and Lapland wish stars
They’ve spent time decorating the door hangers, they’ve sent of their thank you postcards too. We’ve just finished colouring the cards and hanging the Christmas wish stars on the tree.
This year, thanks to https://www.laplandletters.co.uk we have managed to create something magical at home for the little ones, as well as us older ones who turned into Scrooge over the last few years. We are now ready to celebrate Christmas in our own dysfunctional way!
