Are you ready for Christmas? We put up our Christmas tree last night and the kids could barely contain their excitement!
Our eldest was in kindergarten last year and since she didn’t know how to write, she came up with her own version of a Santa letter that consisted of drawings of all the items on her wish list.
But now that’s she’s in first grade and learning to write, she wanted to do something a little more “grown up” this year. So a cute template that she could use to write her very own letter to Santa Claus seemed like the perfect thing!
I know you may be looking for the same thing, so of course, I had to share it here.
Because let’s face it—there are so many things for parents to do around Christmas that the last thing anyone needs is to spend hours googling “Santa letter ideas” to figure out how to write the perfect letter to Santa.
Thankfully, this template takes all the guesswork out of the process. All your child will need to do is check off a checkbox and write a few lines of text. Filling this out with my daughter took under 10 minutes, and it would have taken even less time she hadn’t needed help spelling certain words.
So if you’re looking for ways to save time during the holiday season, make sure to grab the template below and print it out for your child (or students) to use this Christmas!

After you download the PDF to your computer, all you’ll need to do is print it on Letter-sized (8.5 x 11 inches) paper and give it to your child so they can write a letter to Santa and mail it to the North Pole. (If you’re not sure how to do that, I’ve provided more details below.)

How to Use Your “Dear Santa” Wish List Template
1. Print Template
Once you have downloaded your blank “letter to Santa” template, start by printing it out on US Letter-sized paper (8.5 x 11 inches).
Most home printers aren’t capable of full-page printing, so you’ll probably notice a small white border around the edges.
The white border didn’t bother me personally, but if it bothers you, feel free to cut it off so that the colourful border of the template reaches all the way to the edge of the paper.
2. Write Christmas Wish List
Grab the printed letter to Santa stationery and have your child write their name, age and Christmas list on the provided lines.
They’ll also need to check off one of the boxes to indicate whether they’ve been naughty, nice or a bit of both this year—use this as an opportunity to discuss their recent behaviours (both good and bad) in a meaningful way!
3. Mail Letter to Santa
When your child is done writing their letter to Santa, place it in an envelope and mail the letter to Santa!
The exact process to do this, including the address you should address the letter to and deadline to mail the letter if you wish to receive a response from Santa, will depend on where you live.
I’ve linked to some information for a few English-speaking countries below. But feel free to look up “how to send a letter to santa + [your country name]” on Google if your country isn’t listed!
- For US residents: USPS Operation Santa
- For Canadian residents: Canada Post Santa Letter Program
- For UK residents: Royal Mail Letters to Santa
- For Australian residents: Australia Post Santa Mail
I hope you have fun with the template, and here’s wishing you a very merry Christmas!
