Can anyone recommend where I can get a letter from Father Christmas?

I could do one myself, but I thought if I could get one online it might look a bit nicer than I can manage on word with a few clip arts smile

Thank you

I had an e-mail from NSPCC today, IIRC you complete a form on line and a real letter gets sent through the post.

They do ask for a donation of £5 but they are really good

Yep we do the nspcc one every year, you can give whatever donation you like although they do suggest a fiver, you can put more than one child in as well on one letter. They're great and the kids love getting an actual letter through the post addressed to them.

My DCs like the NSPCC one too, DM organises it for them.

Oh thanks, I'll look into that. Have you had one before?

Rather give a donation to a charity if there are options...

Looks like Royal Mail do one as well...

My kids get NSPCC ones every year from grandma & they're lovely.

Have you used portable North Pole before? You get emailed a personalised video of Santa talking to your child and its amazing!

We get the NSPCC one too and it is really lovely and for a children's charity of course.

We get the NSPCC ones. They are brilliant.

Sounds like the NSPCC one is the way to go smile

I used portable North Pole last year, DD1 loved it... will definitely be using it again this year. It was a huge success!

Any other online ideas? I know we can track FC on Christmas Eve as well.

I need to start taking notes of everything!!

we do the nice list video every year - you can do it from end Nov - on http://family.go.com/santas-list/ you upload a pic and name and Santa tells the child they are on the "nice" list not the naughty one... best one to use if you only have one child though - it repeats the same script with a different name...

Look at Roof Top Post.

They are the most beautiful traditional style letters. Not the cartoony type. They are fully customisable so Santa or FC seems to know every detail about your child.

I will upload a picture of last years to my profile.

ByTheWay - thanks, that sounds like Portable North Pole, I'll have a look. I've got 2 DDs with another due (today!) but not sure whether DD2 will understand (20 months) so looking for DD1 mainly.

DowntonTrout - thanks, I'll have a look at that.

How do I look at your profile Downton? (Sorry dumb mumsnetter here!)

Rooftop post are amazing.

You get them from amazon this year.

Truly beautiful, really have the wow factor.

DowntonTrout Fri 09-Nov-12 21:04:49

I think you just click on my name and go to my profile. Then it will say view Downtons photos.

iloveholidays Fri 09-Nov-12 21:05:38

Oh no, now I don't know which one to go for!!! smile

I'm just looking on rooftop - there are some nice templates to print/colour etc.

Nspcc one is lovely.

We also do portable north pole videos online... not sure if the site is running yet. They are so good !! Great alternative to a letter !

iloveholidays Fri 09-Nov-12 21:07:16

Doesn't seem to let me click on your name (or any name for that matter...)

I'll see if I can find any help on the website...

Thanks

DowntonTrout Fri 09-Nov-12 21:09:56

Just google them.

It is the nicest one we've ever used.

iloveholidays Fri 09-Nov-12 21:14:47

Well they certainly do some lovely printable templates which I think I'll use... certificates, door hangers etc.

Thanks for the suggestion.

iloveholidays Fri 09-Nov-12 21:26:06

Think I'm going to start a thread with a link to that website... really lovely! smile

DowntonTrout Fri 09-Nov-12 21:52:01

Oh! Last year I used Classic Santa as DD is older now.

It is a very classy, grown up looking letter. Great quality paper, with a beautiful red wax seal.

They are ver nicely done. Completely different to the Rooftop Post ( still Favorite ever!)

HokeyCokeyPigInAPokey Fri 09-Nov-12 21:55:01

I have used this one since 2006.

You can personalise and choose the letter template.

Comes with a little door hanger.

Great quality.
