Christmas is one of the most magical holidays, especially for kids! If your child still believes in Santa, I know they probably get pretty excited to write him a letter every year. That’s why I’ve created four’ Letter to Santa’ templates to make this Christmas tradition even more memorable! Plus, these ‘Letter to Santa’ templates are totally free! What’s better than that?! 😉
Let’s get started!

The ‘Blank’ Letter To Santa Template
Download all four templates here or at the end of the post!
Our first template is the ‘blank’ letter to Santa. This template is ideal for older kids who are pretty good at writing and know just what they want to say.
Still, if your child needs a little nudge with some prompting, you can suggest they list some good things they have done this year. Listing their ‘good’ accomplishments will help to shine a light on their excellent behavior!
Of course, in addition to their list of nice behavior, they can ask Santa for their Christmas wishes. Kids always look forward to telling Santa what they want for Christmas!
The ‘Prompted’ Letter To Santa Template
Next up is our ‘prompted’ letter to Santa template. This template is perfect for kids who are just starting to write and prefer to fill in the blanks.
The ‘Wish List’ Letter To Santa Template
Our third template is the ‘wish list’ letter to Santa. This type of list is becoming increasingly popular, and for a good reason!
This wish list focuses on four gift ideas; something they want, something they need, something to wear, and something to read. Listing four gift ideas is perfect for a simplistic holiday or if you have a large family and don’t want to overspend.
If your kiddo chooses this letter to Santa, you can always have ‘Santa’ choose one gift, and you can get the others or use them as suggestions for other family members.
The ‘Coloring Page’ Letter To Santa Template
Lastly is our ‘coloring page’ letter to Santa template. This template is fantastic for creative children who want/need no guidance and want to do their own thing!
After coloring in the images, your child can draw Santa some pictures of their Christmas wishes or simply write whatever they want! (Or both 😉 )
How To Print These Letter To Santa Templates
Naturally, when writing a letter to Santa himself, you want it to be of excellent quality. I mean, Santa is pretty special.
If you don’t have a printer at home, you can send the templates to Staples or a local print shop and request nicer paper. These templates are US letter size 8.5″ x11″, which is pretty standard, especially for at-home printers.
If you choose to print these templates at home, I suggest using a higher quality, thick printing paper like this. The thick paper gives the letters a unique feel.
Whether you choose to print at home or in-store, I suggest getting festive envelopes to send the letters in! These red envelopes add a finishing touch to your child’s letter, and they scream ‘CHRISTMAS!’.
Where To Send The Letter To Santa
Once your kiddo has finished their letter to Santa, it’s time to get it in the mail!
When I was younger, I’m sure my letter to Santa never made it out of the house, as there wasn’t an actual place to send it. But these days, you can send your child’s letter and get a postmarked letter back!
If you’re in the US:
Head over to the USPS website for details on how to send your letter to Santa, and receive one back! If you choose to get a letter back, make sure you let your child get it out of the mailbox and watch their face light up with joy!
It’s recommended to send your letters between November 1st and December 2nd to ensure you receive your response!
If you’re in Canada:
Here is the Canada Post website for details! They update the website with instructions as it gets closer to Christmas, so be sure to check back if you don’t see the info you need!
And there you have it! I hope you and your kids love these Letter to Santa templates and create beautiful memories to look back on.
Also, if you love to have keepsakes, it’s a fantastic idea to make a copy of your child’s finished letter. Each year, you can compile them, which is super fun to look back on, mainly when your child is older!
