Some say, and there is a lot written about this, that the art of sitting down and actually handwriting a letter is getting lost in this modern world.

Well we think Santa would disagree with this. Writing to Santa is probably one of the most exciting (and important) things that a child will do every year.

It’s a letter filled with many moments worth of thought, so much hope and all the anticipation in the world.

When you sit down to write a letter to Santa with your child this year here are some tips to help you get all that most important information out in a clear and concise way for Santa.

Tip #1

It’s always a good idea to remind Santa where you are going to be sleeping on Christmas Eve – although he knows these things, it’s never too silly to double check this with him!

Tip #2

Santa loves hearing about clever children – tell him something you have achieved this year that you are really really proud of.

Tip #3

Don’t forget to mention a few of the things you are hoping to be given at Christmas time in your stocking! Maybe even some of the things Mummy and Dadddy don’t know about!

Tip #4

Have you been “good” I know Mummy and Daddy always say Santa won’t come if you haven’t been good. But I’ll let you into a secret – Santa actually likes a little bit of good wickedness. Tell him…

Tip #5

And finally don’t be afraid to sprinkle your letter with colour, sparkles and pictures. It’s inspiring and makes the letter memorable for Santa!

To complete the experience order a highly personalised REPLY LETTER from Santa. Just imagine the delight when it arrives in the letterbox!

Do your kids write a letter to Santa every year?

  • My Nan used to have letters from Santa sent to us from the local Department Store. It was great for a few years until I got annoyed that Santa just sent the same letter to me as he sent to each of my brothers. Lazy Santa….LOL


  • My kids did write to Santa every year. Came in handy to to know of what they wished to get for Christmas. They also got replies from the North Pole. So much fun


  • Great ideas and tips Pippa, cheers.


  • yes in regards to the last comment, i think that you are totally correct but maybe some people need ideas as it might be their first time dealing with santa letters lol. i think the letters make great keepsakes for the future!


  • I really dont think Tips on how to write a letter to santa are even necessary, a letter to Santa is something special and from the heart of an excited child, not a scripted letter, just my opinion…


  • yeah i saw something from aus post and sending mail through them to Santa


  • my daughter sent one this year and received a reply…beautiful!


  • My son knows about Santa now, but he did used to write a letter to Santa each year. Sometimes I had to post it with my son – he insisted. Other times he left it with me to post so I have a few in his time capsule for him to look at later.


  • My children always wrote to Santa and got letters back. They are now in their 40’s and 50’s – so I am so glad to see this tradition is being kept on. It must be the only way young ‘write’ these days – everything else seems to be done on phones or tablets!!!

    • We do thank you notes, birthday cards and other hand written notes and letters. It is a skill that needs to be maintained.

  • I will be helping my daughter write a letter to Santa this year
