When it comes to holiday decorating, everyone has their own theme. Some enjoy a colorful and nostalgic display, while others go for a contemporary and monochromatic design. However, for those who celebrate Christmas and love a traditional color scheme, there's one item that you could use to decorate your home like Joanna Gaines for the holidays. The specific piece is the Letters to Santa mailbox from the Hearth and Hand with Magnolia collection, which Gaines' includes when showing off her son's Christmas-decorated bedroom on Instagram. According to Homes & Gardens, the piece was also featured on Gaines' Instagram story, where she claimed that it was one of her favorite items from the collection. 

The mailbox is made out of aluminum in a dark, evergreen shade with a powder-coated finish. The front is embossed with 'Letters to Santa' and has two holes on the back so it can be displayed on the wall, but mounting hardware isn't included. Sold for $49.99, it's available at Target and can be paired with the Hearth and Hand Letters to Santa Stationery Kit, also available at Target for $6.99. The kit comes with six envelopes addressed to the North Pole and six fill-in-the-blank stationery sheets for kids to write letters to Santa. It also comes with eight envelope seals, one decorative button, and six Christmas cards for Santa to write back with.

How to show off this unique piece

The Letters to Santa Mailbox from Joanna Gaines' Hearth and Hand with Magnolia collection is a unique festive touch you could include when decorating for Christmas. While this mailbox could be hung on the wall, it can also work well on a shelf, coffee table, or side table. Place the mailbox on a flat surface and surround it with bottlebrush or ceramic Christmas tree figurines. You could also opt for more traditional decor and use garlands, poinsettias, and candles. If you decide to hang the piece, place it next to a garland or a wreath. On Instagram, Gaines shows off some of the wreaths and garlands available in-store and online at Magnolia that would pair well with the mailbox, such as the Red Berry and Cedar Wreath that costs under $100. The mailbox would also look good in a gallery wall over a console table or hutch, and the flat tabletop could be the ideal place to display the stationery kit.

Above acting as a decorative accent, this decor piece can also be the center of kids' Christmas traditions. Kids can write their letters to Santa, explaining what they want and how they've been good this year. Then, they can place the letters in the mailbox and magically send them off to the North Pole.
