I am really into this very cute idea.

The International Elf Service will deliver you a bundle of Christmas letters “written” by the Elves at the North Pole.

For £35 you receive a box of 25 letters and matching envelopes (with your kids names written on them) and you dish each one out for every day of advent, leave them on the breakfast table, or arrive in the room clutching one between your teeth.

(Just make sure the telly’s not on when you present a new letter because if yours are like mine you will have to blow yourself up to get them to tear their eyes away.)

Find them, along with other letter options and a festive little video showing what you get, here.
