The following is an open letter to Santa Claus. I am writing it this way because..well I explain in the letter. I’ve included my Christmas wishlist (obviously). Some of these items are affiliate links (I get a small kickback if people buy them, at no cost to you guys) and some aren’t. But all of them are pulled from my personal wishlists.
I know this isn’t the conventional way to write to you, but (as you know) this is my first letter to you. I’ve heard of several different methods for having letters delivered to you, but was unsure about the official means to write. I figured this was the most likely way for you to be sure to receive my letter.
I’m also keenly aware that I am writing my first letter to Santa at 31 years old. As with most things in life, I am doing this very backward. But I have a very good reason for not writing you until now.
You see, Santa, I was never taught to believe in you. I was taught to believe in the Christmas spirit. I was raised to believe in the spirit of giving. I was instructed to pretend to be you to make others happy. But never did I get to believe in the mystical and magical person of Santa Claus.
I never felt gyped as a child. I didn’t know any better. But the older I get, the more I have realized something.
A belief in magic is a wonderful and powerful thing.
I’ve always believed in magic, Santa. I genuinely do. Sometimes that magic takes on different forms and names but it is always there.
I have talked to my friends. Older ones, people who I trust. There, in a special spot in their hearts, is you Santa. Red suit, big white beard, and all. Sure they don’t talk about you all the time, but you are still there. A special part of them. A part that brings out the best of their childlike wonder, kindness, and faith.
I’ve thought a lot about this, Mr. Claus, and those are things I want too. I think the world needs more magic. The world needs more wonder. The world absolutely needs kindness. And I, for one, need more faith.
And because of that, I am writing my very first letter to Santa Claus. To let you know I believe in you.
So, Dear Santa, here are a few things I would absolutely LOVE for Christmas.
P.S. A lot of these things are made by friends of mine. Good artists who could use the support this time of year. I figured with the short notice your elves might need a break.

Commission for a black and scaly dragon! I wasn't able to find the exact fabric we wanted, but this is so gorgeous that I hope it makes up for it. This dragon has the iridescent fabric on the spikes, horns, belly, and inside of the wings! #dragon #plush #plushie #dragonplush #stuffie #commission
Speaking of baby dragon plushies, I’d love one of these from Lemon Penguin
Also, these house cups are FABULOUS from Hand Painted Nerd
I would love anything from Tribble Totes, but this one is super cool for $65
Again, anything from Pesceffects would be amazing, but this $50 bounty print is awesome
