Last month my mom found an old letter that Santa had left me when I was very young. (You may have seen this picture of it that I posted on Instagram.) It was beautifully written in red calligraphy and was made to look as though it were on aged paper. I had no memory of receiving it when I was little, but it made me SO happy to see it now as an adult.
And of course it made me want to have Santa leave my children a special note. Problem is I don’t know calligraphy and there’s no way I’m going to successfully dye paper to look like it’s old (trust me on that one.). So I hopped onto the computer one night and made up some letterhead and a thank you note from the big man in red. (Hey – when you’re important, you definitely have custom stationery.) You can download it later in this post!
I think this set of Santa’s stationery turned out pretty cute and will lend some authenticity to any note Santa might leave your little one(s) – even if you don’t know calligraphy!
After I printed my letterhead and thank you notes out, I tried to write all fancy like Santa would. It looked ridiculous. I’m not even going to show you the full note. Womp womp.
I was much better at checking the boxes on the thank you note. (But even my x’s look a little sloppy.)
I might have to re-print and try again later.

No matter what you end up writing in your letter, or what boxes you end up checking, I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful and magical Christmas together. Enjoy the time spent in each other’s company and make memories that you will cherish for a lifetime. I know I will be doing that. (And then I will be practicing my calligraphy.)
