Why Write A Letter To Santa This Year? | Santa's Post Office UK

Why you should write a letter to Santa this year

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about whether you are on the naughty or nice list and what you would like to receive from Santa this year.

Writing letters to Santa can be a fun family experience to build up the excitement for Christmas, promoting gratitude for when they open their presents on Christmas Day.

Our elves can’t wait to receive your letters and pass them onto Santa but make sure you send them off in time. Don’t leave them until Christmas Eve!


Letter to Santa Ideas

Our elves have created the perfect list to help you decide exactly what to put in your letter this year, taking the difficulty out of structuring your letter:

  • Your name. Don’t forget this!
  • Remember to say thank you for last year's presents.
  • Whether you think you have been naughty or nice this year.
  • What you would like to receive for Christmas.

Santa loves to receive well-decorated letters with drawings and patterns, so take your time being creative with your letter. Turn it into a fun crafting session with your children to get the most fun out of writing your letters, inspiring them to be imaginative with their creations.


Personalised letter from Santa

Santa’s letters are a great way of telling your child how good they have been over the past year and they are delivered straight from the North Pole with an authentic stamp.

Children will love reading a magical story, chosen from a dozen different options with an amazing range of designs, created by the elves just for you.

We will bring the joy and magic of Christmas alive with a letter addressed to your child, as well as a free ‘Santa Stop Here’ door hanger and Christmas Eve checklist to help your children have their best Christmas yet.

With a personalised message from Santa at the end of your child’s letter to congratulate them on their achievements, they will know that every small achievement matters. Whether they were in a nativity play or started their first year of school. 

This is something that they will treasure for a long time.
