If you’ve ever been a child away from home for Christmas, you’ll know the feeling of anxiously writing to Santa to let him know exactly where you are – just in case. Luckily, Santa always manages to find us, but what do you do if you need to deliver presents abroad and you don’t have a team of reindeer who can traverse the entire world in one evening?
Writing a letter to Santa is a magical experience – having the opportunity to connect with the Big Man himself; thinking about Santa sitting at his desk reading your letter and talking about it with his elves; wondering if he will be able to bring the gift requested… but what if Santa writes back?
With a personalised fantastical Lapland letter, your child can receive their very own letter written by Santa which is bound to ensure a magical moment and provides excellent parental opportunities to remind your child to be extra good this year.
Woohoo! I feel like I can finally unleash all the Christmas fun I have been holding back now that it is December (well it will be tomorrow). Technically, my husband will still give me a look. You see when I was pregnant with J we decided not to celebrate Christmas or do anything Christmassy until after his December birthday. That went straight out of the window after the first year because J carries the Christmas loving gene and wants to celebrate all things festive as early as… well August. Yes, August is when my boy started singing Christmas songs to himself! Anyway… to get my Christmas fix I have created a list of Advent activities, one for each day to count down to Christmas and ensure that I get all the festive fun done. I hope that you love my Advent Activities Calendar and can use it to inspire your own Christmas ideas.
I love to support small businesses which are helping people to keep a roof over their head and supporting their family. Small Business Saturday is a great way to do this. Buying Christmas gifts from companies which may be local, or sell unique, or unusual gifts also helps to ensure that your gift stands out when it is unwrapped. To help make it easier for you to find great Christmas gifts for the children in your lives while supporting small businesses I have created this Small Business Kids Christmas Gift Guide.
