These letters from Letterjoy are a perfect gift for the amateur historian in your life.  With a subscription to Letterjoy, you receive a facsimile of an actual letter from an historic figure each week.  The letter will arrive in the mail, just as the original had.

Each month will have a theme, such as WWII or transportation innovation.  And each letter will be from someone who is participating in those historic events, such as a general, a scientist, an artist, or even a president.  Letterjoy’s designers create the letters to be authentic and readable.  Letterheads, signatures, stamps, and other aspects of the originals are recreated to make the experience as authentic as possible.

Subscriptions are available for three, six, or twelve months, with prices of $49.99, $99.99, and $149.99, respectively.  Purchase a subscription for you and the history lovers in your life at Letterjoy.

  2. Neat idea, and I was going to send this to my wife as a good idea for my birthday for later this year. But that’s far too expensive for what it is, in my opinion.

  3. got LetterJoy as a gift. Have had 3 separate issues with my account. Since this was a gift, I contacted them through their FB messenger. My first letter arrived (late- but I figured NBD) was excited, and happy… at first. Then my second letter arrived with 2 duplicate pages. I contacted c/s- was told they wouldn’t send a replacement- that they would add a letter to the end of my subscription (after a lot of verbal run around)… ok- so incomplete letter #2 – letter #3 never even arrived. I live in a pretty big city, no inclimate weather conditions, and got ALL my other mail timely. After a lot of back and forth I was given excuses, and ambiguous solutions that I had to ask for actual clarification… more than once. SUPER FRUSTRATING. Felt like I was dealing with a bot. As it stands, I’m NOW awaiting letters #2 and #3 – which I have been advised they are resending, and then hopefully whatever else is supposed to arrive as per my gift subscription – oh and TWO whole additional letters “for my troubles” As of now, I’m definitely underwhelmed. Hopefully others haven’t had my same negative experience with their customer service. It’s a cool concept and I was totally geeked when I found out about my gift… BUT- it doesn’t feel like Christmas every week when I open my mailbox and get NOTHING!!

        1. My daughter gave me a subscription to Sherlock Holmes letters. I’m I am such a fan that I have practically memorized the whole oeuvre. The letters are a real treat and seem very authentic
