Dear [name of child],
Greetings from the North Pole!
I am writing to share with you that your present this year is particularly special.
The elves are working very hard to get your gift just right, so there may be a slight delay in the delivery of your gift.
Please know that we are working around the clock to get this under your tree on Christmas Eve, but we may need some extra time. But don't worry, it will be well worth the wait!
Because you have been such a good girl/boy this year, I know that you will be understanding of our situation. Thank you for your patience.
May your holiday season be merry in many other ways!
At the bottom right is Santa Claus' signature in red.
