International Elf Service™

“These were the best things I have ever (and I mean ever) ordered!! I’ve never seen the magic or happiness last so long x”
– Jolene (August 2017)

* Completely new letters and content each year!

AGE: 5+

Includes our Letter From Father Christmas!

* If your child(ren) have shorter attention spans, the North Pole Christmas Letters may be better for your family.

We deliver a well-disguised package to you, containing:

  • 25 Christmas letters from Elfie, magically interspersed with letters from 7 other Elves. Letters 1-24 are dated, and all are addressed to your children. Each letter is lovingly illustrated by hand, and complete with ink splodges, marks, and smudges.  *Letter 25 is for delivery any time after Christmas Day.
  • An Emergency letter from Mother Christmas explaining why Elves aren’t allowed to reply to letters children write to them, but encouraging them to continue doing so.  Believe me, this will be very handy!
  • 26 envelopes with all the children’s names on each one.
  • A map that Elfie has drawn of the village in the North Pole.
  • A certificate from the Postmaster General congratulating the children for being chosen to receive the letters.
  • A Letter from Father Christmas for your child(ren) to find on Christmas morning!

As the Christmas season arrives the excitement gets the better of the Elves. They’re easily distracted, rather clumsy, and make huge amounts of mess. Do your children know what a Cinnamon Mine is or what a Magical Wind Machine does?

Each day through December, on the lead up to Christmas, you secretly deliver a new letter on the Elves’ behalf!

The Practical Bit

Hide them among the bills and junk mail, or laying on the table first thing in the morning, stashed among the toys, or snuggled up in their bed. You choose where your children find the letters, to create a magical daily family ritual the kids will love!

Christmas 2017: North Pole’s Top Talent

…Elfie tells us a magical and fun story full of adventure that really sparks children’s imaginations through Advent on the countdown to Christmas …

Jenny trips and falls while holding the In-Flight Notebook, and a page from last Christmas Eve flutters out … apparently Father Christmas lost his Cranberry sandwiches overboard, and the Emergency Sleeping Powder went up his nose making him almost miss the last delivery!

And important questions are raised: will Marty’s new invention ever work the way he wants it to? How do Candy Canes grow? Why do blank letters whoosh out of the Magical Wind Machine from time to time? What’s happened to the Sleigh’s sparkle and can the Elves get it back in time? Who on earth has written asking for ten million three billionty trillion Christmas gifts, and what will the Elves do with this enormous Christmas List?  What grows on Stocking Bottom Trees? Why does Rudolph look a bit odd? What ‘extras’ will Father Christmas’ uniform and the Sleigh have this year? …

… and more importantly, who will win North Pole’s Top Talent?

A bit more magic…

For families who prefer fewer letters or have busy children, we have our North Pole Christmas Letters (5+ years old).  For the much younger children (3-4 yrs old), who prefer more activity based magical letters, our Candy Cane Christmas Lettersa seven letter set, are perfect!

Please note that due to the printing methods that Elfie uses and the nature of recycled paper, the product and the print may vary.  Do have a read through our Testimonials!

Children’s Names *

Please enter the names here exactly how you would like to see them on the letters eg: Ava, Lucas & Jack NB: Emoji’s print as black.

    I love these letters. The certificate you give them before the letters is fantastic. Tells them they have been chosen to receive letters from The North Pole. I can’t wait to see her face when she receives the certificate never mind the excitement of the letters. My daughter is going to love these. I can’t wait to see the magic and excitement throughout December as she reads her daily letters. I’m so excited for Christmas celebrations to start. £35 seems a lot but how can you complain when this will bring the magic of Christmas alive. So worth it.

    These letters are amazing. I’m sure my 5year old grandson and 2 year old granddaughter are going to absolutely love them. I’m looking forward to seeing their little faces. Thank you xx

    I bought these for my nieces & nephew the past couple of years. My sister has said they have been so excited to get them, she hides them around the house with an elf. As their aunt I get a kick out of adding an extra bit of magic to their Christmas.

    We got these letters for the first time last Christmas and it made December a very special time. My daughter loved waking up to the letters every morning and reading about what was happening in the North Pole. Excellent quality and lovely stories. This is something that I will do every year now and I’m delighted that we have just received our letters for 2017 which are amazing.

    Absolutely wonderful! Bought for 3 wee ones of varying ages. They searched high and low for them every morning. Letters turned up in cereal boxes, in the bathroom, on the dog… some days they were easier to find than others. The stories were fab and the children loved the humour & were hooked, wanting to find out what would happen next. Have ordered for this year already, they are too good to miss! A new tradition which is loved.

    Love love love these letters!
    My Daughter Megan was so excited to receive these letters last year (so I’ve bought them again) she would come running into my room every morning to read them to me.
    The story and pictures on the letters are stunning, a perfect Christmas memory Xxx

    These letters made my sons christmas. They are without doubt THE best thing we have done for christmas. The world these letters create is wonderful, the letters are beautifully illustrated, funny, touching and truly magical. My son is now 7yrs and has decided Father Christmas is not real, and he was fine about it…but he was much more upset the next day when he realised that no Santa meant Elfie wasnt real either. Elfie’s letters meant more to him that Santa’s stocking of prezzies, and I love that. Thank you so much.

    I bought these last for last Christmas. I bought a cheap stocking and glued some battery lights to it, and hung it on the mantle. Every morning, Max would come down and see a letter poking out of the stocking. Elfie had also left him a chocolate coin. The look of wonder on his face each morning, was priceless. Children grow up way too fast, and making special memories, is so important. These letters, make such wonderful memories, and made it special for all of us. I’ve bought them again this year, and I can’t wait to make even more memories.
    Buy them, you won’t regret it at all.

    These truely magical letters are certainly going to be a new tradition for us. Having been following the FB group for just over a year now I’m made the leap to purchasing these and am not disappointed. The incredible way the letters have been written, the details of drawings and splodges on the paper are amazing and once you start reading you just cant stop. I am definitely going to be doing these every year and can’t wait for December to come to introduce our 2 girls to this magical writing and in the future when our baby boy gets to delight in these too. Thank you for your beautiful imagination and helping to bring a little special magic to our home x x

    A fabulous lovely magical idea.
    The letters are written lovely and are very funny, my 7 year old loved receiving them each morning.

  29. Rated 5 out of 5

    I ordered Christmas letters last year for my son & daughter which they absolutely loved! The letters are so cleverly thought out and we had so many laughs. I also ordered my son a birthday letter which he thought was great! He loved the idea of the elves celebrating his birthday at the North Pole. I also ordered one for my daughter’s birthday which is in October. I can’t wait to see how she reacts as we will be on holiday. I am looking forward to the questions, ‘how did the elves know where to send the letter? Etc. Overall, brilliant!!!

    This will be the 3rd year I’ve used these letters for my granddaughter who is 9yrs. She gets so excited, as I use them in connection with our own Advent Calendar. I usually hide the letter with a little gift, which she can find through clues in the calendar draw. It makes December so special.
    The letters are beautiful and lets the children believe in all the magic of Xmas.
    I have ordered Birthday letters for the first time this year. Once I send them (October) to my grandchildren I will let you know what they think.
    I would recommend the letters to anyone who wants to enjoy seeing the children so thrilled with the thought that she has her own personal elves helping Santa. Keeps the magic alive.

    • I’m so pleased your Granddaughter enjoyed her letters Dee! Thank you so much for your kind words. Much appreciated x

    I ordered the Elfie Christmas letters for my 4 children in 2016, and my mother said after witnessing their reactions: “wow, that was the best £35 you’ve spent!” They were blown away by the magic and excitement, and went squealing round the house in the mornings, searching for letters, opening them with trembling hands, and phoning family members to tell them the latest from the North Pole. As my eldest said once the second letter arrived: “it’s real, it’s really real….this truly is magical”. Nothing beats bringing that joy to your children.

  32. Rated 5 out of 5

    My daughter is 10 and this was probably the last christmas that she would believe so we wanted to do something special – and this was it! amazing letters with great detail, she loved each and every one. Highly recommended

  33. Rated 5 out of 5

    Such a beautifully presented and high quality product. My children (aged 4, 6 & 8) were so excited to find the letters that I had hidden in the run-up to Christmas. They sparked their imaginations and my eldest wrote letters in return. A wonderful alternative (or addition) to an advent calendar. Thank you Emily!

  34. Rated 5 out of 5

    I can not explain how much joy these letters have not only given my daughter but my husband and I. So beautifully written . We all look forwards to reading them everyday. My daughter has even kept them all in a box in mint condition as she say they are so special. Well worth the money. These really make the run up to Christmas special. We have had these in 2014 and 2015 and can not wait for the next instalment of the letters.

  35. Rated 5 out of 5

    I ordered Elfie’s letters for my 2 and 4 year old to make the run up to christmas a little bit more exciting.

    On opening the first letter my 4 year old was spellbound, he loved looking at the map and kept asking me to read it over and over. Everyday they would rush down the stairs to find the next letter and they even started doing drawings for Elfie.

    Elfie often left activities and little gifts for them, which made them even more excited.

    The letters themselves are beautifully written and engage the children so well. My 4 year old still talks about the standing still contest and Marty parping (Marty was his favourite after Elfie because of this letter!) and he’s already asking if Elfie will write again next year.

    The letters are amazing, the customer service is fantastic and I can’t recommend Elfie’s letters enough.

  36. Rated 4 out of 5

    Can’t recommend these amazing letter’s enough! They have brought great joy to my children (aged 5, 7, and 11!!). It has really made our Christmas that extra bit magical. The kids are far more interested in what Elfie and co. get up to next, than what’s hiding behind their advent calendar door…and who can blame them! Wholeheartedly, the best countdown and build up to Christmas EVER!

  37. Rated 5 out of 5

    They were lovely, thank you! They made my 2 children feel really special and they loved the funny stories, we’ll be buying again this year : )

    A definite new Christmas tradition in our house. Both kids (2 and 5) loved them. Great stories. Lovely packaging. So imaginative. Thank you for adding some effortless extra magic to Christmas!
