It’s that time of year again! While an alien from outer space might be forgiven for thinking that a magical Christmas is all about rampant commercialism and overpriced syrupy lattes, we parents still know the joy of the season – if only through the eyes of our little ones as they stumble downstairs wide-eyed on the morning of December 25th.

The run-up to that enchanting moment, however, can be quite exhausting, with multiple festive functions putting a dampener on even the cheeriest Christmas elves (read: Mum and Dad) whose nerves soon turn from “Jingle Bells” to jangled.

As the stockings and fairy lights come down from the attic, our calendars suddenly fill up with nativity plays, carefully orchestrated family meals and visits to Santa, not to mention all those days of dashing, dancing and prancing in the name of retail (what do you mean, you don’t stock partridges in pear trees?).

Of course, online shopping helps – and Created By Magic can become one of your favourite stops, offering extra-special festive gifts you’d never have thought of or perhaps had given up seeking on the been-there, seen-that high street, all from the comfort of your home. After all, when you’re making a list and checking it twice, a handmade, personalised twist is twice as nice!

From gorgeous, christmas prints to the super-snuggly Reggie Reindeer, you can be assured of a fresh outlook on the season here at Don’t forget a personalised letter from Santa – it’s guaranteed to put a twinkle in your child’s eye and prompt some extra-good behaviour.

There’s sacks-full more gift ideas throughout our website, but don’t forget – good ol’ Saint Nick will only be able to deliver presents ordered before 10th December, so it’s time to get cracking! Your ‘Magical Christmas’ shop will be done in no time, earning you the right to relax and actually enjoy the festivities – whatever they mean to you.

Happy Holidays from everyone at Created by Magic – now, where’s the sticky-tape…?
