In popular culture, Santa Claus appears a paradoxical figure, generous with children’s gifts, but stingy with tips for the Easter Bunny. Enjoy Santa’s largesse with today's Groupon: for $9, you get a 10”x17” gold-level scroll from Santa.com (a $19.99 value).
Santa.com's dedicated elves apply St. Nick’s signature to Merry Christmas missives customized for their youthful recipients. The gold-level scroll arrives in a brilliant silver tube, sparkling gaily as though sent directly through the North Pole's fabled pneumatic mail system. As cautious loved ones unroll the large 10”x17” letter, eyes catch glimpses of elegant scarlet-and-gold borders and a massive ornamental seal before reaching Santa’s personal note, inscribed in fanciful script on the archival-quality cover stock. Though Santa.com provides suggested text for the letter, parents can customize the language to reference specific gifts or upcoming dentist appointments when they order. In addition to the gilded letter, during the summer children will receive a bonus message from Santa in a digital mailbox hosted on the website, where kids can make a list of desired gifts for the jolly fellow to pass on to family and friends.
