Santa is very busy at this time of year and sometimes needs a little help getting all his letters answered. His elves do the best they can to help with the huge pile of mail, but occasionally Santa has to rely on parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles to make sure he doesn’t forget anyone.
You can help Santa by filling out the letter below for your favorite child. Simply click one of the Santa letter images below to open and personalize the letter in Microsoft Word. Then include any special Santa surprises you’d like to add and send it to the North Pole to get Santa’s approval and an official North Pole postmark. You might also want to visit our Santa’s Nice List Shop for gifts you can customize with your child’s name and the year.
If you don’t have Microsoft Word, you can copy the sample Santa letter text below into your own word processor and print it on your own holiday letterhead.

Sample Santa Letter
Dear **CHILD’S NAME**,
Merry Christmas! I can’t believe another year has gone by so quickly and it’s almost time to visit you in **CITY, STATE** again.
The elves have been very busy this year and I’ll be bringing you something very special they created just for you. I’m sure you’ll like it, just like you enjoyed the **LAST YEAR’S TOY** they created for you last year.
How is **BEST FRIEND’S NAME**? I see that **HE/SHE** is on the list of good girls and boys with you. I’m so proud of you! I’m really happy to know you **SPECIAL ACCOMPLISHMENT** this year.
Well, it looks like the elves need me in the toy factory now, so I have to say goodbye. Be sure to leave a little snack for me and the reindeer on Christmas Eve because we get hungry flying to visit so many kids.
Keep being good!

Ho, ho, ho! We’ve been very busy at the North Pole getting ready for Christmas Eve. Mrs. Claus is making me a new suit, the reindeer are getting in shape, the elves are finishing the toys, and I’m making my list and checking it twice. That’s why I’m writing to you!
I saw you’re on my Nice List of [__AGE__]-year-old [__GENDER__]s this year. I’m so proud of you! I’m also proud that you [__ACCOMPLISHMENT1__] this year.
The elves are making you a very special gift this year. I know you want [__FAVORITE TOY__], but I can’t tell you what they’re making because it’s a surprise! I know you’ll like it.
I’m really looking forward to visiting you in [__HOMETOWN__]. Don’t forget to leave out some cookies for me and some carrots for the reindeer. We work up quite an appetite delivering toys.
Have a very merry Christmas!
I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas again!
I know this year you’re really hoping for [__FAVORITE TOY__]. Well, I can’t tell you what I’m bringing because it’s a secret, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!
I also want to tell you how proud I was when I found out you [__ACCOMPLISHMENT1__] and [__ACCOMPLISHMENT2__] this year. That’s great for a [__AGE__]-year-old!
Well, I have to go now to make sure the elves are putting the finishing touches on all the toys. We have a lot to do before the big night. But Rudolph says to tell you first that he’s really looking forward to visiting [__HOMETOWN__] to deliver your gifts. It’s one of his favorite places to stop because there are so many nice children like you who live there, and he knows that people will leave out some treats for him and the other reindeer.
Don’t forget to go to sleep early so we can visit.
See you soon!
I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas time again! It’s so busy up here at the North Pole at this time of year. I just came from the toy workshop, and the elves are hurrying to get all the toys finished for Christmas.
I’m looking forward to visiting [__HOMETOWN__] to see you this year. I can’t believe you’re already [__AGE__]! I know you’ve really grown since last year, and I was so proud to hear that you [__ACCOMPLISHMENT1__] this year. That’s great!
Can you guess what I’m bringing you this year? I know you really want a [__FAVORITE TOY__]. Well, the elves made me promise not to tell you what I’m bringing, but I promise it’s something [__AGE__]-year-old [__GENDER__]s like you will enjoy.
I’m looking forward to seeing you soon. Don’t forget to go to sleep early and leave out some treats for me and the reindeer. We get hungry flying all over the world. It’s a big job for one night!
