Write to Santa with NZ Post

Santa’s elves are gearing up to receive mail for Santa and Mrs Claus - with a little help from New Zealand Post. So it’s time to get writing!

Writing to Santa is a family tradition for many Kiwi families.

Bryan Dobson, NZ Post spokesperson, says NZ Post loves delivering Christmas for New Zealand, and helping children send off their wish lists.

“Every year NZ Post receives tens of thousands of mail from kids all over New Zealand. Messages can be sent to Santa online using our interactive website or by post.”

To make and send a digital postcard, visit www.nzpost.co.nz/writetosanta. Children can drag and drop their favourite items from fairy lights, milk and cookies, to presents and lots more to make their Christmas postcards to Santa special.

“Santa’s ready and waiting and looking forward to a snow-covered letterbox stuffed with mail.”

The address for letters, no stamp required, is:

Santa Claus
c/- Santa’s Workshop
North Pole 0001

Please ensure your full name, address, and postcode are on the back of your envelope.

Digital postcards need to be sent by 2 December and letters by 7 December to receive a response in the mail from Santa.

“Christmas is all about traditions like this. NZ Post has been delivering Christmas for New Zealanders for almost 180 years, and we can’t wait to deliver Christmas again this year,” Bryan says.
