:: How to Send a Letter to Santa & How Santa Writes Back! :: :: Free Christmas Letters from Santa :: Official Letter from Santa ::

Year after year, our little ones are sending their wish lists to Santa, but wouldn’t it be nice for Santa to write back? Even better, its postmarked from the NORTH POLE! And even BETTER, it’s FREE! Here’s what you need to do:


  1. Have your kids write their letters to Santa.  Place it in a large Santa Mailenvelope (DON’T SEAL IT QUITE YET!) and address it to:
    North Pole Christmas Cancellation
    5400 Mail Trail
    Fairbanks, AK 99709-9998
  2. Using this template (or use your own), write a letter from Santa to your child. (Type it up on the computer or give it to a friend to write it for you –to help conceal your handwriting!)
  3. Place the letter you wrote inside a self-addressed stamped envelope that is addressed as follows:
    TO: Your Child’s Name
    Your Child’s Address
    FROM: Santa
    North Pole
  4. Place the self-addressed stamped envelope addressed to your child INSIDE the large envelope that contains your child’s letter. Mail it all together. The U.S. Postal Service will apply a North Pole, Alaska postmark to the inside envelope and deliver it. Just make sure your letters are in Fairbanks, AK by December 15th so they make it back in time! write letter from santa

Package From Santa



They offer three different packages: Gold, Silver, and Platinum, starting at $14.95.  I personally purchased the Silver Package which includes:  Personalized Video from Santa (You get to pick between two videos, of which are very well done (seriously, high quality!). It mentions your child’s name and state, picture of your child when Santa is trying to see if he/she has been naughty/nice, their picture again in the end of the video on the “nice wall”; Personalized Call from Santa (which you get to set up the time/date and get to select from a list of which type of call you would like to get from Santa); Personalized Letter from Santa Claus; Personalized Nice List Certificate; 8 1/2 X 11 Autographed Santa Claus Photo; Autographed Rudolph Photo; Santa’s Special North Pole Return Address Label; Special Elf Shipping Label Addressed To Your Child; Genuine North Pole Stamp; 60 Day Money Back Guarantee.  You know you are getting high quality stuff, when companies are featured (like this one, in People, Good Housekeeping, Parenting Magazine, American Baby and Fast Company), and offer a money back guarantee!

    This is the greatest idea to do for little children! I remember doing it with my own two and they would absolutely light up in thinking that Santa really was responding to them. 🙂 If only you could keep them young longer. Great post! 🙂
