In our opinion, the magic of Christmas should be preserved for as long as possible and one of our favourite ways to do this is to arrange a personalised letter from Santa to your youngster.

Available to buy at a variety of price points (and even different formats!), you'll be able to specify details about your child ranging from their name and age to their birthday, what they want from Father Christmas and even whether they've been naughty or nice, ensuring your youngster feels truly special.

As well as making them excited for the big day, a personalised letter from Santa can also be a subtle reminder for your child to be on their very best behaviour to ensure the elves make all their presents! And we could all do with a bit of that now and again eh?
