I have seen a lot of really good ideas in my lifetime, blankets with sleeves, Sham-wow!, Magic Bullet blenders, the list goes on. But I found the best idea I have ever seen last night at the Sauk Rapids Coborn's, a "Letters To Santa" station!

They had a mailbox set up, a table, even pens and paper. Basically everything you need to send your letter to the North Pole this year. The kids can check it off their holiday "to-do" list, and while they write it, the parents can grocery shop in peace.

The holidays are crazy, and this is a great idea to give everyone in the family a moment of holiday cheer, and a little break from the hustle and bustle. I think every store should have one of these set up!
