Where to Mail Your North Pole Santa Letters
Time for kids to pull out that dusty box of stationery from the grandparents and start writing. What better way to get on Santa’s good list than to write him a letter. Here is our list of Santa’s official mail receptacles. Most promise a return letter with the inclusion of a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
Kids can drop off a letter at the City Center Park Plaza. City elves pass your letter on to Santa but this drop does not promise a letter. Parents may want to get a peek at their kids letters before mailing so they can help Santa write a return letter. Up through December 26.
Dakota City Heritage Village, 4008 220th Street W., Farmington, MN 55024
Mail your Santa letters at the post box outside the Post Office in the charming historic village. Be sure to include your self-addressed envelope with stamp so St. Nick can reply to your child’s letter. Time this with a visit to enjoy the holiday lights on December 2nd, 3rd, 9th & 10th, 2023.
Gifts Galore, 207 E 2nd St W, Hastings, MN 55033 (7 days a week)
The Studio Downtown 205 2nd Street E, Hastings, MN 55033 (Nov. 25, 2023; 2-5pm)
Kids can drop off legible letters with a stamped, self-addressed envelope and receive a personalized response. If you would like to take a photo of your child dropping their letter into the mailbox, you are invited to share it on Downtown Hastings’s Facebook page. Begins Thanksgiving weekend.
