I was given a chance to try out for free Itsyourstory.co.uk new photo personalised Santa letter service. My five year old son is still fully believing in the magic of Christmas whilst his eight year sister is a bit more cynical about it so I decided to get a letter for him.
It is a really simple process to set-up and create one:
- choose which version you want (Rudolf or Santa)
- add to your basket and then upload a recent photograph
- add the personalisation (Name, gender, address, town, names of 2 friends)
- say who asked Santa to write
- age of child next year
- a PPS with max 120 characters for end of the letter
Once the photograph has finished uploading you position it correctly in line with the elf cutout to turn your child into one of Santa's elves. You can choose standard or express delivery which is based upon the posting date on the web site front page (current 1st December).
The letter arrived yesterday in an envelope addressed to me (marked with it's contents so you know to open it secretly!). Inside was an envelope addressed to my son with a North Pole stamp and a picture of Rudolph on the front:
Bless my boy he was so excited that Father Christmas had written to him! All the little personalised bits made it so much more convincing too as only a real Santa could know all of that information about him! This has really put us all in the Christmas mood and is a nice extra touch for your child this Christmas.
