Merry Mailbox (giveaway)

This is the first year that Ashlyn has been old enough to begin to understand the magic of Santa.  We took her to get her picture taken with Santa on Wednesday, and once she worked up the nerve to actually talk to him she was a little put out that she asked Santa very politely for a new baby doll and didn’t get it right then and there.

Merry Mailbox is an Etsy store that lets your child receive a personalized letter from Santa!  All you have to do is answer some questions and Santa’s speical helper Marissa passes along all of the information.  The letter comes in an outer envelope address to Mommy or Daddy, and inside is a special envelope just for your little one!

I gave Ashlyn her personalized letter from Santa Claus this morning, so that Santa would have had enough time to send it after our visit this week.  Ashlyn loved opening her own envelope and she loved hearing all of the little details about her life (our cat’s name, what a wonderful big sister she is – Santa even mentioned her closest friends by name!) that are all throughout the letter.  She was thrilled that Santa included some stickers for her too.

This is a wonderful idea for any child who believes in the magic of Santa!  There is also a letter specific to baby’s first Christmas, and a religious letter from Santa if you’d prefer that to be the focus of the season.
