DescriptionBefore Christmas Letter: My Magical Greenhouses
What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?
Father Christmas writes this letter from one of his favourite places, a greenhouse full of strange and magical plants, where he has retreated for a bit of peace and quiet. He tells the reader all about them – and about the interesting creatures who help him organise all the Christmas presents and fit them in his sack.
Unfortunately for him, Father Christmas can’t linger in his greenhouse too long, as he has so many things to prepare for Christmas. He signs off by reminding your child to write a Christmas list.
What else would it be useful to know?
In this letter Father Christmas writes: “I must ask you, have you written your Christmas list yet?” Consequently, this letter would be best for a child who has not written a Christmas list this year.
This is a lovely letter for those children who like finding out more details about Father Christmas’ home in the North Pole. If your child likes imagining weird and wonderful plants, this would be a particularly great choice.
AGE RANGE ADVICE: “My Magical Greenhouses” suits a wide age range and strikes a gentle but amusing tone. Although our letters are generally designed for 6+ years, parents have reported that children of 5 and under have enjoyed this one too.
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!
