Christmas Presents for Moms and Dads

Posted by Santa Claus on December 16th, 2008

Many of my friends ask me, “Santa Claus, what can I get for my Mommy and Daddy for Christmas?”.  Then some of my friends ask me, “Santa Claus, why do you not bring as many presents for Mummies or Daddies or other grown-ups?”.

Well, the answer may surprise you!

You see, there is one present that grown-ups want.  Mommies and Daddies.  Grandmas and Grandpas.  Aunts and Uncles.  All Grown-ups! 

It is a present they want more than anything else in the world.  But it is not a present elves can make.  It is not a present Santa can bring.  It is not even a present money can buy!  It is a present only you can give them!

What they would like most of all this Christmas is just to know how much you love them and how much they mean to you.  Trust me!  I have known the grown-ups in your life for a long time!

So here is what I want you to do: I want you to make up some gift cards for all the grown-ups you love.  You can make a gift card that promises to do your Mom’s fingernails.  Or one to make your Dad breakfast in bed.  You could have one that promises to clean your room.  Or even one to do the dishes for a week.  You can make lots of cards for all kinds of things!  If you do not know how to spell a word, draw it instead.

Make the gift cards as pretty as you would like.  Put stickers on the cards.  Do fancy drawings on them.  Draw a picture of the person it is for on it!

Then you have to do this on your card. Write “I LOVE YOU!” on it!  That is what makes it special.

You can put your gift card in an envelope.  Or, fold it gently for them to open.  Then hide your card.  It will be a big surprise when you give it to them Christmas!

It will be the best Christmas present they have ever had!  I promise you.

Did you know even Mrs. Claus gives me special gift cards?  She gives me gift cards for… cookies!  But the part I like best is when she writes “I Love You” on the card.  :)  

Because, you see, Christmas is all about family and love.  As long as you have that, you will always have Christmas.  Presents and stuff like that are nice.  But, they really are just the trimmings on the Christmas tree!

Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus

P.S. What would you put on a gift card you made?  (You can leave a message for me.  Or, scroll down to see what others have written!)

    My friend Parker said:

    Dear Santa, all of my friends say you aren’t real. But, i don’t know what to believe. I feel that you are real.

    Reply from Santa:

    Parker, of course I exist! I exist just as surely as love and the spirit of childhood do. Sometimes when kids and adults get older they lose their spirit of childhood. They even start to think that I don’t exist! But I have been around for a very, very long time because people of all ages have kept me in their hearts. Even if the way you think of me changes over time, I hope you will always keep my spirit with you. And even if I cannot bring you presents, you must always remember that I love you very much!

    It is also ok if others don’t believe in me. Everyone can have their own opinion after all (even if it does not happen to be right! :) . If talking to your friends or other kids about this makes you upset, then it might be best not to talk to them about it. You are your own person. You do not have to believe or do something just because your friends say so! And, as long as you keep the spirit of Santa in your heart, that is what is most important!

    Merry Christmas!

    Reply from the Elves:

    The best way to make sure your wishes get into Santa’s book is to email Santa. They go straight in that way! If you put them on this blog then someone might forget to add them :(

    Merry Christmas!

    P.S. What’s the magic word? :)
