Don’t forget that even in the UK, we stop taking orders for DIY letters on 3rd December.
Please note that if there are delays within the postal service which are outside our control, we cannot accept responsibility for letters not arriving in time for Christmas. We advise you to order early.
It’s safe to order as early as you like because Father Christmas makes sure his letters arrive through your letterbox hidden in a plain envelope so that your children don’t spot them. Just set them aside until Christmas!
Why are our last order dates earlier than the Royal Mail’s last posting dates?
We get asked this a lot but the answer is simple. It takes time for Santa to personalise letters and the nearer to Christmas it gets, the more letters he has to get through. Also, as a family business, we understand that every letter is special and we want all of them to arrive on time.
Missed our last posting dates?
You can print free letters from Father Christmas from this area of our site. Sorry, they can’t be personalised with your child’s name, but as long as you’ve got a reasonable printer, they’re just as magical without.
