NSPCC letter from santa

With Christmas just around the corner there’s no better time to arrange those special treats to get your little ones all excited for the big day.

Why not arrange for them to receive a Letter from Santa and put together a fun little Christmas Eve box for them.

How do I get a Letter from Santa for my little one?

The NSPCC is running its popular Letter from Santa campaign once again this year and for a suggested £5 donation to help cover the cost, you can get your child a personalised Letter from Santa delivered right to your front door.

As well as personalising the letter to include your child’s name, age and hobbies, you can choose from a range of enchanting Christmas illustrations and stories. 

Letters are designed to be age appropriate, with shorter copy that's easier to read for younger children and longer letters for more advanced readers.

The money raised from the Letter from Santa campaign will help fund vital NSPCC services such as Childline, and help keep children safe this Christmas, and all year round.

To order yours, search online for NSPCC Letter from Santa or visit the Free Stuff section of your Bounty app.

What’s a Christmas Eve box and what do I put in it?

The anticipation of Christmas being just one sleep away makes Christmas Eve the most exciting part of the festive period with all the preparation of getting stockings ready and preparing a treat for Santa and the reindeers. 
Creating a Christmas Eve box will just add to the magic too!

Ideas to fill your Christmas box include:

It’s a great idea to have some activities to do together throughout the evening as a family, such as a board game, activity books or craft making activities. 

Sweet treats
Their favourite chocolate bar, some festive sweets, hot chocolate and marshmallows or a gingerbread house are all great ideas. You could also include a baking kit to bake cookies or mince pies as a treat for Santa (and yourselves).

Books and films
What better way to spend Christmas Eve than to read a Christmas story with your little ones or watch your favourite Christmas Movie snuggled up on the sofa. 

It can also be a fun idea to make and put up some last-minute decorations, hang your stockings and pop up a sign to let Santa know where he can stop.

Pjs and slippers
Probably the most popular item to include within your Christmas Eve box is brand new PJ’s. Lots of families make this a tradition or throw in new slippers or some cozy Christmas bed socks. 

Whatever you fill your Christmas boxes with, getting them and a Letter from Santa will just add that extra bit of magic to your little one’s Christmas.
