For Christmas last year, we left everything SO late that we completely forgot about the magical Christmas traditions that both my hubby and I used to do as children.
We were very late with the carrot buying for Rudolph and his crew, and we were lucky that hubby happened to have a drop of whiskey to leave out for Father Christmas too. However, I had quickly thrown together a Christmas Eve box for both the girls – bare in mind they were only 1 and 2 at the time. They had their Christmas jammies, a Christmas film to share and a book each. I had sadly forgotten about writing to Father Christmas though. For Amelias 1st Christmas we did write to ‘Santa’ via Royal Mail, but last year it completely slipped our minds.
This year we have actually got our Christmas a bit more organised – I mean, it’s pretty early still as it’s October but hey, how early is too early really?!
For this years letters to the girls, I have chosen to receive a letter from Lapland Mailroom*. They have a really simple and easy to use website, 3 different letters to choose from, aswell as a “baby’s first Christmas letter” and packages that come with certificates and an activity pack – there’s so much choice! With the amount of choice, I didn’t think it would be easy to pick a letter, but when I briefly read the examples, I found it easy to decide and I then began to personalise my first letter.
It was super quick and easy to personalise and have both of the girls letters ready to order! There are so many extra details too, like adding the exact age of your child!
I really like that you can see exactly how they will look before they actually arrive. Sometimes you have to see a copy of these things before you know if you’ve definitely made the right choice – if you now what I mean.
Now we wait! The mailing date for Father Christmas’ letters is 5th of December, and as we’re actually away for Christmas this year, I think that’s perfectly timed ready for the big day 20 days later! I’m so excited for the girls to see their letters!
