Before Christmas Letter:The Runaway Table

What does Father Christmas write about in this letter?

Keen to escape the pre-Christmas chaos, Father Christmas has taken himself down to his cellar – where he knows he’ll get some peace and quiet. While there he writes to tell your child lots of magical things about his house, from spiders who spin artworks to furniture with a mind of its own! This letter is both funny and enchanting and has become one of our customers’ favourites.

What else would it be useful to know?

Nothing really. This letter is a good all-rounder, a nice choice for any child.

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!

How much is shipping?

    DS was given this as a surprise and it was an ace read, whole family loved it, tickled DMIL for some reason she couldn’t stop laughing and DS keeps looking at our own table oddly. Soooo tempted to start making up stories about it.

    Liked envelope, the glitter, plust the little spiders to count were a nice touch. Great fun ahead of Christmas. Will recommend.
