Do you have believers in your house? And a sense of tradition and nostalgia? Time to discover the new updated Polar Post website.

Polar Post is a site launched in 2015 by Charlotte Wood, a mother and committed letter writer. This September, she redesigned the site making it a slicer operation.

Polar Post describes itself as the ‘official’ postal service of the North Pole, sending letters to and from Father Christmas. ‘In an age when letter writing is no longer in fashion, Polar Post strives to keep alive the devotion so many children still feel when it comes to writing their letters to Father Christmas,’ says Charlotte. The site sells charming illustrated stamps, envelopes, personalized letters and tags that double up as childhood keepsakes to celebrate this magical time of year.

Returning for a third year, the 2017 stationery and stamp is created in collaboration with illustrator Helen Stephens, best known for her well-loved children’s books ‘How to Hide a Lion’ and ‘Fleabag’. This year, there is a new collection including Christmas gifts and stocking fillers such as leather pocket money purses, Maileg mice and sweet treats from ‘Merrys Sweet Shop’. Also new for 2017 is their wrapping paper illustrated by Jessica Russell Flint.

Polar Post’s range of personalised letters from Father Christmas includes: Baby's First Christmas Letter, Letter From Father Christmas, The Believe Letter and Christmas Morning Letter. This year’s Letter From Father Christmas tells the story of Comet the Reindeer and his adventures winning ‘The Annual Reindeer Race’. The Believe Letter is designed to help assure little ones who might have any doubts about the existence of Father Christmas. There is also the Christmas Morning Letter tells tales about Santa’s journey from the North Pole and is designed to be found with their stocking when they wake up. Last Christmas, Polar Post introduced the North Pole Hamper, and this year will add two more wicker hampers for sale; the Midnight Feast hamper and a mini hamper.

It gets better. Charity plays a part in every letter sale; For every Polar Post letter bought this Christmas, Polar Post will donate £1 to UNICEF, helping to protect children in danger.
