Christmas begins when Joanna Gaines says so – and she's kick-started the festive season with one of her favorite decorations for 2023. 

'One of my favorite things is this Santa letter set and mailbox from our Christmas collection at Hearth and Hand,' she comments. It's no surprise that her go-to decor comes from this Magnolia-designed collaboration that fills our homes with Jo-Gaines-approved style around the calendar. So, of course, the holidays are no exception. After all, as they explain, 'tis the season to make mantels merrier & gathering spaces cozier,' and these pieces are a failsafe starting point. 

Firstly, the Letters To Santa Mailbox, seen in Joanna's story, is a subtle nod to the season. Made with metal in a powder-coated finish, this mailbox is a fun (yet good-looking) accent that sits as a talking point on any shelf or tabletop.

Naturally, the perfect accompaniment is the Hearth & Hand Santa Stationary Kit, designed to work with the mailbox. The set includes six envelopes, six stationery sheets, and eight envelope seals that children will love – and Crew Gaines is no exception. In her story, Joanna shares her son's letter to Santa.

This set may be among Joanna's top decorations this holiday season, but we, too, have our favorites that may just rival this quaint set-up. Of course, we're looking to her Heath & Hand collection for more stylish picks that will continue to impress year after year.
