Making personalised Love Santa letters special

If you are giving a special child a personalised letter, you want it to be special and something they will not only enjoy but also make them feel special and valued.

Santa Lady writing a listAs Santa’s Letter Elf, I will do my best to make every letter positive and exciting, but you can help make it truly personalised when requesting a Love Santa letter.

Tips for placing a Love Santa letter order

  1. use the name the child likes – if everyone calls Timothy Tim, he will be surprised Santa calls him Timothy!
  2. write information as if to the child – don’t tell me about it
  3. be particularly careful with spelling anything unusual – I can change ipod to iPod easily enough but if I don’t recognise something I have to accept it is correct.
  4. actively choose backgrounds and wording – I strongly recommend having different wording for siblings, and different backgrounds is fun
  5. only use capital letters where necessary – most toys and good deeds don’t need a capital unless you use a name
  6. list gift ideas that match what the child wants – don’t just write what you want him or her to get as the letter is about the child. Don’t worry – Santa never promises to bring anything specific as he prefers to surprise children anyway!
  7. it is nice to include good deeds from throughout the year rather than just the last week or so – but very young children have shorter memories!

    Love Santa Letters look great as scrapbook pages

  8. choosing a different design from previous years adds to the surprise and excitement – and makes for a colourful collection if the letters are kept from year to year

I strongly believe that Christmas can be for adults, too, and the magic around Christmas is fun, so go ahead and enjoy the process of ordering a Love Santa letter.

And enjoy the anticipation of waiting until the postie delivers letters to those special little people!

    I’d love to see a completed letter to a child before I decide to order.

    • Hi Sandra,
      We don’t have that facility – partly because the letters are personalised so I wouldn’t want to risk anyone’s privacy by making their letter public. There are photos of letters within our site – I’ll add some links for you later.

  • Sharon Summerfield says:

  • Erin McMullan says:

    Hi, I just bought a letter, but there was nowhere to add in the personal details, or select the stationary?

    Can you please advise?

  • Lorraine Webb says:

    Good morning, I was wanting letters from Santa to be delivered prior to 10 December as my Grandchildren are going on holidays. Is this possible.

    • Hi Lorraine, yes it is possible. On the order form you can select which week of December you want the letters to arrive in. And if you note that on the form I’ll check the letters go out as early possible 🙂

    I have just gone into your site and paid my money however none of the forms are coming up. Not the order form or the contact form. At the moment I appear to have paid $10 to type this message. Can you help please.

    • Hi Karen, we will email you momentarily (but you probably would have received a quicker response if you had emailed us instead of just leaving a comment on a blog post). Sorry you haven’t seen the order form – paypal should have directed you to the form once payment was approved but as it apparently didn’t work for you, we will send you the correct link. We hope you find the letter a delight for your child!

  • Fey Dane says:

    Hi, I have paid for a letter and filled out the form, but it just keeps clearing when I press order. I have tried several times to email you, but it won’t go through…keeps saying invalid verification code. Please help….I also have a request not to mention the boomers. We believe that Santa has reindeer. Thank you, fey

  • Fey Dane says:

    Hi again, I’ve just checked my email and can see that the order has gone through (twice, because I filled it out again after it cleared the first time, sorry).
    Hopefully you read this in time anyway, as I really hope you can omit the part about Santa having boomers. We leave out a carrot for the reindeer and milk and a cookie for Santa. Thanks, fey
