I’m feeling lucky this holiday season. The magic of Santa Claus is still alive and well in my household (due to minimal effort on my part, thankfully)!
My daughter is a proud kindergartner and my nephew is only 20 months old. So to date, there have been no questions from them about whether or not Santa is real. I’m working hard to keep that the case for as long as I possibly can. My husband and I love Christmas and the childhood enchantment that comes along with it! And, it turns out we’re not the only ones.
Fellow Boca Raton mom and entrepreneur, Sarah Blain, also loves the holidays. So much so, she founded Sealed by Santa, a Delray Beach-based company that sends out customized letters to children with a special postmark from Santa’s Workshop each year. These original Sealed by Santa gifts are authentic, personalized and could honestly turn even the worst Santa cynic into a believer. They’re that realistic.
Since her 2016 appearance on the ABC show Shark Tank, Blain has been working almost as hard as the “man in red” to find more new ways to share her love of Christmas with Sealed by Santa customers and devoted fans. So, I’m happy to have the inside scoop this year that Sealed by Santa is offering an even larger range of packages from the North Pole! Here are some of my favorite options:
Train a Reindeer
Help put a reindeer through flight school with Sealed by Santa’s fun “Adopt a Reindeer Kit” ($29.95). The kit includes a reindeer stuffie, an official “Adopt a Reindeer” adoption certificate, craft kit, North Pole stickers and a Santa Top Secret ornament with video message. All delivered right to your door!
Tamper with Evidence
With the “Twas the night before Christmas/Parent Evidence Kit” ($39.95), you’ll have all the elements that parents need to create the ultimate “Santa was here” scene. This kit includes a Santa boot stencil, Santa’s license and even a Christmas Eve map. For your Boca kids, they can count down the minutes before Santa arrives by making cookies for him with the Santa Cookie Recipe, playing with the Christmas Activity Book and crayons, and enjoying Santa’s favorite hot cocoa.
No Chimney, No Problem
When your South Florida home doesn’t have a fireplace, Sealed by Santa has the solution. The company now offers “Santa’s Magical Key” ($4.95), a charming skeleton key that can amazingly unlock any home that doesn’t have a chimney, so that gifts can be left inside. The key can be personalized with your child’s name and address and a postcard can be added to the order along with a frame-worthy ‘Nice List’ certificate, illustrating that your child is on the correct list for presents, for an additional fee.
I’m making a holiday pact with my fellow Boca moms to keep the holiday magic alive as long as possible! Santa will be welcome in my home (hopefully) for many years to come. My lips are…well, sealed!
