I’ve always loved the magic of Christmas. Now, as a parent, I feel responsible for creating a magical time for O too – especially as he’s really starting to understand and learn more each day. I was lucky enough to be asked by Santa’s Lapland Mailroom to review a personalised Letter from Santa which I know O will just love.
Lapland Mailroom offer a choice of 4 letters that can be personalised to be totally unique to each child, to include the child’s name, address, their best friend’s name, their most wished for present and something that only Santa knows. 3 of the letters are suitable for any age and are slightly different which is good for siblings, and also a Baby’s First Christmas letter which can be kept as a keepsake.
The website is particularly easy to navigate and got me feeling Christmassy straight away! I chose the design of letter that I preferred and entered the information that would help to make the letter more personal. You can also choose to have the letter sent from Santa Claus or Father Christmas, which I really like.
The letter arrived in a white envelope “From Santa!” with O’s name and address shown in the window – I can’t wait to see his face when he see’s he has mail! Inside the envelope was his letter from Santa, a Nice Child List 2014 Certificate and an Activity Pack.
The letter and certificate are printed to a brilliant standard on high quality papers – Santa would be proud. O’s letter is perfect and I can’t wait to read it to him closer to Christmas. I’m sure his Nice Child List 2014 Certificate will take pride of place in the living room too!
The Activity pack is really substantial and, again, printed to a high standard. It includes a Christmas card, a door hanger and “Santa Please Stop Here” poster to colour in and decorate among others. I did notice that the poster has a link back to the website in the bottom right corner. Although O would never notice this, a child three or so years older would maybe question this. I’m not sure there really is a need to include the website address anywhere on the items that the child receives. In spite of this, O will love to get his crayons, pencils, glue and glitter out and get a little arts’n’craftsy with the pack.
All in all, it’s a great product for a very reasonable £6.95. I can’t wait to see O’s face!
