DescriptionBefore Christmas Letter: A Winged Gift
NOTE: An unpersonalised version of this letter is available to print for free elsewhere on our site. Many people still purchase it because they want us to add their child’s name, a special P. S., wrap it with ribbon and place it in a beautiful Christmas envelope, but others are happy with without those things. It’s up to you!
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
“A Winged Gift” is one of the most gentle letters in our before Christmas range. Father Christmas is up early and on his way to feed the reindeer, when he is stopped by the post penguin – who has a special delivery for him.
It turns out that an old friend has sent Father Christmas a flying horse as an early Christmas present. It appears that the horse has been rather lonely because in the past, he has had to spend a lot of time on his own. However, he moves into the reindeer stables and soon becomes great friends with Rudolph and the other reindeer.
What else would it be useful to know?
This letter is an obvious choice for any child who likes horses!
At the end of the letter, Father Christmas writes, “Carry on being good until Christmas, won’t you?” so you don’t need to add that if you’re writing your own P.S.
AGE RANGE ADVICE: We think this is a great letter for practically any age but from what our customers tell us, it seems to be especially popular with children of 7 and above.
What’s all this about adding a P.S.?
If you like, you can add a short P. S. to this letter. It’s your chance to play Santa!
Customers usually add something personal which is just for that child. Some examples from other parents are: “Well done for that brilliant story you wrote for your teacher. You’re so good with words – it’s quite a talent!” or “Give your brother a hug from me and tell your cat my reindeer are looking forward to a chat with him on Christmas Eve!” You get the idea.
We will place the P. S. on the bottom of the letter, using a font of Father Christmas’s curly handwriting. Please note that while we try our best to be vigilant, we cannot guarantee that we will spot any typos or spelling errors you may make.
Adding your own P.S. is entirely optional – the letters look just as pretty without.
We do not charge extra for this service.
How is the letter packaged?
This letter is gently folded, tied with a ribbon, and placed in a colourful envelope bearing your child’s name. The whole thing is then placed in a plain envelope for posting, addressed to a parent or guardian. This is so that if there are small eyes around when it arrives – it looks like an ordinary piece of mail. Tip: We suggest that you leave your child’s before Christmas letter somewhere around your house for him or her to find. There’s nothing like the look on a child’s face when they think a letter has magically appeared!
