A Review of “My Letter From Santa Claus” – My Family Ties

Getting ready for Christmas

My Letter From Santa Claus

It’ s that time of year when we all start to think about the upcoming organisation of all things Christmas.  In a bid to be super organised this year I am getting one step closer by getting the Christmas letters to Santa all ready for my daughters. On the list this year is a lean to the more traditional Christmas so when I had the opportunity to review My letter From Santa Claus I was intrigued to see if it was as traditional as it looked on their website.

When you go the website of My Letter From Santa  the first thing you will notice is a really easy navigation through the different steps on how to order, which is essential when you have what I call ‘Christmas brain” (mum’s out there will know what I mean!) and need nice easy websites to do your Christmas shopping on. When you have lots of things to tick of your list the last thing you need is a hard to read website with difficult navigation.

Having been kindly provided with a letter to review from My Letter From Santa I went straight to the website to set up my order.  The options are clearly set out for you to order Premuim £5.59 (with free postage) right down to a handy e-letter £ 2.69 which is available right up to Christmas Eve.

I decided on the Premium letter for my daughter Lara, and once you choose your letter, it is very straightforward to go through the form and select the information you want to include on the letter that your child will receive.

There are so many choices to personalise the letter so individually for your child which is a lovely way to make it special and so authentic and realistic sounding for the child.  The options to include I know she will really love as you can add what their favourite toy on their Christmas list is (Lara wants some Monster High Dolls).

You can also add a huge range of other personal information such as siblings, I added Lara’s sister Siobhan and the town/village you live in and even somewhere special you have been over the last year

Once the form was completed and paid for, which was really clear and simple, I received an e-mail to confirm all the details I had filled out on the form. The letter arrived just a few days later in a plain white envelope with the red enveloped Letter From Santa Claus inside, sealed with a very lovely looking wax seal.

I have tried various different letters from Santa over the years but none were as detailed and personal as this letter, I really do like the authentic feel of this letter and all the little touches that make it feel real, and special.   The stamp on the letter says ‘Approved By Santa‘ and on the thick quality paper the calligraphy style writing looks like it has been lovingly written by the big man himself.

Lara will love the part of the letter that tells her Santa has just seen the elves wrapping her sister Siobhan’s present!

The letter also comes with a ‘Santa claus Nice List Certificate ‘ which again is on quality paper and has lots of little but important additions (for kids to notice) such as the signatures of Santa and Mrs Claus and also Jingle & Jangle the Chief elf.

Last but not least is the ‘Santa Stop Here’ (I’m tucked up in bed and fast asleep) poster a perfect sign to colour in and hang up to wait for Santa to visit with your presents.

If you are on the hunt for an authentic looking and highly personalised letter for your child, I would recommend this for quality and content, and although my daughters haven’t seen this yet I know they will really love the authentic look of the letter, as well as the personal message and all the special touches that are part of this special letter.

You can easily and quickly order yours at My Letter From Santa Claus  and if you have any questions or queries the customer service team are very helpful and are happy to help with any problems that may arise on your order.

The letters can be delivered to Ireland The United States and the UK, and the e-mail option is a very useful option to bear in mind.

Thank you for reading, it may seem a bit early for getting Christmas ready but we only have 11 weeks to go until the big day!

    What a great idea, I might order one of these for my niece (well, my brother's girlfriends daughter), she's only 4 so I'm sure she'd love it. Thanks for the reminder too, I've just pulled out my diary to start marking off payday's until the big day.
