The kids are my greatest critics – they’re as sharp as knives, with imaginations bigger than anything else in the world. If I get their seal of approval, then that’s very high praise indeed …

This is what the grown-ups say …

  • "My daughter actually asked Santa in her letter to Santa to get Elfie to write to her this year again. She was extremely excited receiving the letter this morning. She enjoyed Elfie’s first letter (particularly the elephant poo reference) and is very excited about what Mother Christmas is going to tell Elfie tomorrow. "

  • "My children (and I) have LOVED the letters from the North Pole from International Elf Service this year! It’s been fun hiding them, and them finding and reading them. If you want something that wee bit extra to make December fun, we’d give them the big thumbs up!! "

  • "Second year running and we are thoroughly enjoying our elfie letters already! This year my son’s best friend is getting the letters for the first time and I can’t wait for the boys to discover this and talk about it!! It’s a firm tradition now in our house and my son looks forward to them so much. We actually count down to elfie letters arriving rather then Xmas day in our house!! Even the tooth fairy wrote to will and mentioned elfie in the summer "

  • "Perfect, thank you – pleased they arrived so quickly. I’m impressed with the beautiful expression of your idea – a joy to open! "

  • "Very happy to say that Elfie’s letter was here when we returned from our holiday, beautifully packaged (again) and looking forward to seeing our daughter open it on Thursday. Thank you! The new Christmas sets sound GREAT – something else to look forward to later this year. "

  • "Many thanks, [Elfie’s birthday] letter arrived yesterday & I managed to sneak a peek – it’s terrific! She will be delighted! "

  • "I’ve just placed an order for Elfie’s Christmas letters for my children.  In fact, it was them that prompted me into getting on and ordering the letters; as they have both been whispering about Elfie and said they were wondering if he would write again this year!  Although my daughter is at that age of “doubting”(or at least listening to others at school who spoil the fun!), your letters keep the magic and mystery alive so I am sure will keep her believing for at least another year (she’s 11 in January!). I do hope my order isn’t too late amongst all the pre-Christmas chaos you must already have!! You are doing a fantastic job in keeping the magic alive, amongst children and adults alike!!  I hope you and family have a wonderful Christmas! Wishing you and family all the best. "

  • "We are having the most wonderful time with the letters. My eldest has had the whole Christmas conspiracy revealed by a friend at school, but with these letters, the magic has been restored and I couldn’t be more grateful! And the letters arrived Harry Potter style on the day of the snow – perfect! Thank you! "

  • "Having now used all these [Elfie’s Christmas] letters I feel I needed to truly thank you for creating something so wonderful. I have used the letters in unison with a certain elf, and I can honestly say that the whole experience has been amazing for both me and my 7 year old son. He has thoroughly been captivated by the letters and grown to love our elf (he hated the whole elf thing before) We have had sadness that he is leaving tonight, but he thanked Elfie for telling him all about the North Pole. I will definitely be ordering again next year (and a birthday letter) So thank you very much for creating something so magical – Merry Christmas and have a wonderful New Year! "

  • "The quality and content of the letters was great and the service fantastic. My two kids (aged 4 & 2) absolutely loved receiving their elf letters. They looked for their letter every day, which would “appear” magically, at various times, in places like, on their favourite chair, on their pillow, on their bookshelf etc. They would get so excited when they found one and then we read it together every night before bed. Will definitely do it again next year. "

  • "This is our second year of receiving elf letters and the magic gets stronger despite being a year older ( aged 9). My daughter is spellbound by tales of Marty, Dave the Stitch and of course Elfie and these create such a wonderful build up to Christmas Day. Thank you so much for helping to create some wonderful childhood (and parenting) memories x "

    – Sharon (Jan 2018)

  • "I can’t wait to see this years letters from Elfie and the gang. We have had them the past 2 years and the joy and magic they give on the run up to the big day is just priceless. I’m looking forward to hopefully creating some magical memories with the help of the wonderful ideas you share. Lots of love and great appreciation for the magic you share! "

  • "Just letting you know that we received our order yesterday and I absolutely love them! The map of the elf village is already on our fridge and looking at it this morning put us in festive form, which resulted in a Christmas Carol session.  Something tells me I’m going to regret starting this so early! "

  • "I need to share with you how thrilled I am with the beautiful Elfie’s Letters box. I really am excited to do it again this year. I can’t wait to see the girls’ faces (especially Imani’s) on seeing these. I love the finished product. They’re fabulous. Thank you so very much for these. I’m looking forward to sharing with you the excitement I know they’ll generate again this year. "

    – Kirsty, London (Oct 2014)

  • "Thank you so much for our letters. To say they are ‘ok’ would be an understatement!! They look absolutely beautiful and I can’t wait to see their faces when they get their first one. I love the texture of the paper too. Really adds to that authentic look. Really well thought out and the envelopes are brilliant!! "
