Last year we had the opportunity to review Lapland Letters and I am super excited to have the girls review them again this year. The build-up to Christmas Day for a child is full of excitement, and with my girls being 5 and 3, they are at the beginning of believing in the magic surrounding Christmas.
What better way to begin the festive season than the girls receiving a personalised letter from the Big Man himself. Father Christmas.
What Is Included in The Bumper Activity Pack:
– Personalised Lapland Letter
– Lapland Stamped Envelope
– Secret Santa Map (On the Back of the Letter)
– Activity Christmas Card and Thank You Santa Postcard
– Activity Santa Sheets and Colouring Door Hanger
– Santa Stop Here Poster
– Good Child Certificate
– Lapland Wishing Stars
– Santa’s Magic Key (Martha received the Reindeer Food in hers)
The letters are personalised for each child with their name, where they live, their best friend and what they would like for Christmas. You can either choose to have it from Father Christmas or Santa depending on what your child calls him. When the letters arrive they come in a red envelope with Santa’s stamp and a big question on the back. ‘Have You Been Good This Year. See Inside’. How exciting for any child! From ordering them to them arriving it was around a week. So really quick.
Just like last year, we decided to get the girls to write their letters to Father Christmas and burn them on the fire. In the morning, on December 1st, the letters were beside the fire. Just waiting to be opened. This time around we popped some extra treats with it such as advent calendars, pyjamas and activity books to really get the festive season kicked off.
There is something so special seeing the reaction on the girl’s faces as I read out the letters to them. They get to hear their name being mentioned along with what they have asked for and it is signed off from Father Christmas. The added touch of Santa’s Magic Key and Reindeer Food just grabs their imagination into believing in him. They both squealed with excitement and jumped around the room already wishing down the days until Christmas Eve. This is when Mabel said to me ‘we will be going to bed super early Christmas eve so Father Christmas can use the key and we will put the reindeer food out for them’. It is such a wonderful thing just seeing how happy they are.
That is the beauty of these Lapland Letters. Just watching the amount of joy that comes from such a simple thing creates memories to treasure. With lots of companies doing something similar, I think it is a wonderful idea for children to receive a letter, especially when they are young. What I feel makes Lapland Letters worth the money is the extras and the amount of personalisation that goes into it.
Never Stop Believing In The Magic.
