Template for Letter From Santa
Writing a letter to Santa is a fun way to get your kids excited about Christmas (just in case they aren’t excited enough already). And what will make them even more excited is if Santa writes back!
I don’t mean to spoil anything here, but if Santa is going to respond to your child’s letter you’re going to need to do a little bit of work to make it happen.
Thankfully not too much. And my letter from Santa templates can help!
I have four different letter from Santa templates to choose from. So you can find the one that works best as a response to your child’s letter.
All four templates are perfect for responding to my Letter to Santa Template if you want to give your child some inspiration for their letter.
One of the templates is complete as-is. Another is fill-in-the-blank. And the second two are completely blank templates (one with lines, one without) that serve as Santa’s official stationary while you supply the letter’s content.
Take a look at all four templates and decide which one will work for you…err Santa this year when responding to your child.
How to Use These Santa Letter Templates
All four of the letter from Santa templates are available in my resource library here. I will try to make it super clear which is which so that you don’t have to open them all.
Each of the printable Santa letters prints out on regular 8.5 x 11 paper. And they look their best when printed in color.
How much writing you need to do will depend on which template you choose. But even if you’re starting from scratch with a blank letter from Santa template, you can use the other templates for inspiration on what to write.
Once your letter is written, I’ll tell you how you can send it to your child and get a North Pole postmark. But first let’s take a look at the templates!
Letter From Santa Template #1 (Done For You Letter)
This is a completely done for you letter from Santa template. Just grab it from the resource library. Print it and arrange to have Santa send it to your child.
It’s a nice letter if I do say so myself. And I don’t think many young kids will worry that it’s not personalized. However, the one drawback is if you have more than one child.
It might make them feel a little disappointed if Santa’s letter to each child in your family is completely identical.
But I might be overthinking this. Depending on the age of your kids, they might not even notice.
For you, as a parent, this option is gold. All you need to do is grab the letter from the resource library and print it!
If you do want a letter that is mostly done for you but you can quickly personalize, check out template #2.
Letter From Santa Template #2 (Fill-in-the-Blank)
This second letter from Santa template is super easy to fill out and personalize. You can add your child’s name. And an answer to the question they asked Santa if you used my template for a letter to Santa.
Kids will love receiving a letter from Santa addressed with their own name. And this easy to fill in template makes it simple to send one.
Letter From Santa Template #3 Blank Template with Lines
This template for a letter from Santa has a little bit of a framework with the lines but it’s completely yours to personalize for your child.
You can address the letter directly to your child with their name. Answer any questions they asked Santa. Or praise any artwork they sent.
And don’t forget to comment on their wish list. And anything else you want to add. I like the lines because it makes it easier for me to write straight.
And it keeps me from writing too much or too little. If you recognize those struggles in yourself, then the blank letter from Santa with lines is a good choice for you.
If you’re looking for a completely blank slate for your letter from Santa, scroll on down to template #4.
Letter From Santa Template #4 Blank Santa’s Stationary Template
This letter from Santa template is basically a blank canvas for you to create an epic letter to your child directly from Santa!
I did leave Santa’s signature at the bottom. Santa seems like the kind of guy who would have a cool signature like that.
But the rest of the letter is yours to complete. And make it as personal for your child as you want.
Of course, you might want to disguise your handwriting if your child knows it well. Or ask a friend or family member to take on the actual writing of the letter. That way your kids won’t recognize your writing.
No matter which of these 4 letter from Santa templates you want to use, you can get access to any or all of the templates by completing the form below (as well as access to my entire library of resources for moms)!
How to Get a Letter From Santa with a North Pole Postmark
If you want to really impress and amaze your child this Christmas consider sending a response to their letter from Santa directly from the North Pole!
The U.S. Post Office has a program that allows kids (and parents) to send a letter to Santa and get a response postmarked from the North Pole.
You can get the complete directions for how to send your child a letter from Santa with a North Pole postmark at the USPS website here.
To complete the process you will need to send your child’s letter to Santa in an envelope WITH your letter FROM Santa that will be sent back to them as Santa’s response.
The exact directions from the post office have changed a little over the years. So, please visit the Post Office website here for complete details. And to make sure you have the correct instructions.
Please note that you will need to have your letters mailed by December 7th to get a response in time for Christmas.
Other Ways to Get a Letter From Santa
If the North Pole postmark doesn’t matter to you. Or you’ve run out of time to complete the steps there is an easier way. You can always mail the letter from Santa to your child locally from the post office. Or ask a friend too.
Or sneak it into a pile of mail you bring in to from the mailbox. (I’m a fan of this easy method personally).
There are plenty of ways to make receiving a letter from Santa magical without needing to go overboard with elaborate plans that add to your holiday stress.
A little misdirection followed by some “look what came in the mail!” and you’re all set!
