It’s that time of year again! Time for magic, joy, peace, and the celebration of Jesus’ birth! That means that it’s time for your children to write out their Christmas letter to Santa. A few months ago I shared this free printable Christmas wish list with you, and I promised that I’d be sharing one for your kids to fill out. My free printable letter to Santa is here! Make sure to read to the end to find out the fun way to “deliver” your letter to St. Nick.
Make sure you pin this printable so that you can come back to it and print it again, year after year. I would love for you to share this with your friends and family so they can print their own. You can do that with the buttons at the bottom of the post, and that will also allow you to find it again because it will share it on your profile page. This is for personal use only. Please send your friends and family to this page to print their own, and do not print many yourself. Feel free to print one for each of your own children. Sending everyone here helps me to continue to make and keep these printables free for you. Thank you so much for understanding and for spreading the word about the blog!
More Christmas Wish Lists
If you need a wish list for everyone else in your life, make sure to go print the original wish list I made. You can use it for friends, family, teachers, etc. It allows them to write things they’d like, need, wear, and read, along with favorites like teams, restaurants, books, etc. There’s also a section for sizes so the gift recipients won’t end up in long lines returning items after Christmas.
I have adult versions, for your husband & yourself, that I’ve created and will be available soon. It’s not vulgar, just flirty, and I think your hubby will definitely like it. There’s one for yourself to fill out for him so he can get you something you won’t return lol, and one for him to fill out so you get what he wants. I also have plan to create an at home date night and other fun Christmas printables that will available soon. Enter your email address below, and you’ll get an email when I add new tutorials, printables, and other great posts, and you’ll never miss a thing!

Download Free Printable Letters to Santa
Fun, Child-like Version
The first version of the free printable letter to Santa is a fun childish letter. Your child can mark if they’ve been naughty, nice, or like most of us, a little of both. There’s a place for the thing that they want most. We call it their main gift (usually the most expensive). There’s a place to add more gifts they’d also like and a place for them to sign the list. I’ve added some fun graphics including a notation next to a plate of cookies letting Santa know they’ll be leaving him some. Use the button below to download the letter.
If you have kids that are older and don’t want a “baby” letter, I have created a more grown-up free printable letter to Santa. My two children are eight years apart so there came a time that my daughter didn’t believe anymore, but she still needed to write a Christmas list so that my son didn’t get suspish. This free printable is more teen-y than kiddy.
First Christian Version
I created two Christian versions of the free printable letter to Santa because, after all, Christmas is about the birth of Jesus. This version has adorable blue nativity scenes and characters. I’ve always told my children that the reason Santa delivers gifts to children of the world to spread the love and the news of Jesus. This letter reflects those sentiments.
Second Christian Version
I couldn’t stop with only one nativity printable. This free printable letter to Santa has a cute ornament with baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph and another with the wise men. The bows on the top of the ornaments are pink which make this the perfect Christmas list for girls.
How to Deliver the Free Printable Letter to Santa
Store Bought Mailbox
There are several ways to deliver your children’s Christmas list. We have a Christmas mailbox that we purchased from Michael’s a few years ago. My kids put their letters in it on the night after Thanksgiving. That is when our Elf on the Shelf, Elfis, comes. That’s also the night when all of your elves come as well I’m sure. The next morning our kiddos wake up to a letter from Santa and Elfis in the mailbox. Every day following that for a few weeks, they get a random act of kindness task to complete that comes in the mailbox from Santa. I want our children to care more about giving than getting gifts at Christmas. You can get that same free printable letter from Santa and RAOKs here in this post.
Buying a Christmas mailbox from places like Michael’s usually costs $39 to $59. If you’re like me, spending that kind of money during this time isn’t always palatable. I made a full size mailbox of my own using Dollar Tree supplies. An actual, full size mailbox. It’s absolutely adorable. It will be going in my son’s room this Christmas. I have different themes in different rooms in my house, and his this year is the bright red and green fun Christmas colors and shapes. Dollar Tree has several different color options to choose from, so you can follow my tutorial and customize the mailbox to fit your home. Once it’s made your children can put in their letter to Santa, raise the flag, and then expect their return letter and RAOKs to be delivered every morning. You can make the mailbox in an hour or so.
Direct to the “North Pole Mailbox”
A final way to deliver the letter to Santa is direct through the North Pole mailbox. When my daughter was little we didn’t have a Christmas mailbox. She placed her letters in the freezer, which, when it’s closed, opens directly to the North Pole on the other end. Let your little ones place their free printable letters to Santa in the freezer, and tell them that the NP has a mail carrier just like we do, and once a day they gather the letters delivered to the frozen mailbox, and place any outgoing mail in it. You can print out my letter from Santa and ROAKs, and your kids will be so excited to get them out of the freezer in the morning.
You can also mail your letters to Santa from the actual US Post Office. However you won’t have those precious memories to keep. I have all of my children’s letters to Santa. I’m sure you want to keep yours to be able to look back through the years at how your babies’ grew from messy misspelled words to neatly printed letters.
