Letters from Santa! Holiday fun! Holiday Giveaway Opportunity!



Letters from Santa (, provides parents a simple way to create beautiful, personalized letters from Santa that can be printed instantly. Available in both a free and low-cost Magical Package version ($3.99) ,
Did I say personalized? That is an understatement! In addition to 16 gorgeous Letter designs, there are 13 highly personalized messages! The Letters are full of special details only Santa could know, and address a multitude of worries that little ones might have.

Santa eases the concerns of children that Santa won’t find them because they will be on vacation at Christmas time, because they have moved that year, or even because they don’t have a chimney. Santa soothes the little hearts of children whose families are living apart, or who have military family members that can’t make it home for Christmas. Santa even addresses specific gift requests, celebrates the little one’s big accomplishments, and commemorates Baby’s First Christmas.

In addition to these very special Letters from Santa, when you purchase a Magical Letter from Santa, it comes as part of a package which includes 2 envelopes, a lovely personalized printable Official Nice List Certificate (spectacular when printed out on heavy paper), a beautiful printable autographed photo from old St. Nick himself, and a 27-page printable Coloring& Activity Book!

But that’s not all…this year they have added a set of 16 adorable printable Christmas Lunchbox Jokes!

To sweeten the deal, they even have extra freebies on their website…from jokes, to printable gift tags and labels, to coloring pages, as well as an awesome Free printable Official Letter to Santa! It is perfect for your little people to write or draw their biggest wishes to the big guy himself!
