DescriptionBefore Christmas Letter: The Wrapping Room
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
“The Wrapping Room” is a letter which gives life to a very special room in Father Christmas’ house where, as its name suggests, all the presents get wrapped. It can be rather more trouble than it sounds though, especially when a new, somewhat clumsy elf turns up to work. Poor old Father Christmas finds himself having sort out everything from breakages to wrapped up elves!
What else would it be useful to know?
Although our letters are intended for all ages, we’ve had parents say they’ve enjoyed giving this to younger children (of around five), as their little ones have liked the pictures of elves.
At the end of the letter, Father Christmas mentions that Rudolph often goes out flying to practice for Christmas Eve – and that he likes to see that children are being good about going to bed. This makes this a very useful letter if you’re trying to encourage children to go to bed on time. (The idea that Rudolph might be flying over your house to check can work wonders!)
Father Christmas makes a point of saying well done for being ever so good in this letter, so if you’re adding a P.S., you probably don’t need to reiterate that.
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!
