A Christmas Elf Letter from Santa

Chrismas Elf Letter of Introduction From Santa

The mischievous Christmas Elves visit children around the world in the run-up to Christmas. The elves are charged with the serious job of reporting back to Santa about good little boys and girls, but are also known to leave a trail of trouble and mayhem wherever they go.

Each Elf needs a letter of introduction – after all, he (or she) is part of the special North Pole SAS (Santa’s Annual Surveillance) Team. Christmas Elf letters usually give the Elf’s name, explains that he or she is visiting the house to report on the behaviour of good little boys and girls, and must leave on Christmas Eve in time to report back to Santa.

Often the letter gives a warning about how mischievous Christmas Elves can be. You can use our free Santa’s Elf letter templates – one from a girl elf and the other from a boy elf to see the kind of things  Santa usually says about his Christmas Elves. You can also download our ready to print PDF Christmas Elf letter.

And remember your Christmas Elf will be reporting directly to Santa. So, you’d better watch out, and you’d better be good for goodness sake!

Introductory Christmas Elf letter for a girl Elf

Dear {child’s name}

This is a special letter to let you know that an important member of my North Pole SAS Team (that’s Santa’s Annual Surveillance team, just in case you didn’t know), is visiting your house this year.

Please allow me to introduce you to {Elf’s name}. She’s one of my oldest and most trusted Christmas Elves, and I hope that you will take good care of her. For most of the year, {Elf’s name} lives with me, Mrs Claus, the reindeers and all my other helpers, here at the North Pole. This is one of her first trips to live with a real human family and she’s very excited to be staying with you.

How to care for your Christmas Elf

If you’ve never looked after a Christmas Elf before, or if you’ve forgotten what to do (after all it’s almost a whole year since last Christmas), read these tips on how to keep your Christmas Elf happy.

1.       {Elf’s name} doesn’t eat human food. Instead she needs lots of hugs and cuddles to keep her happy.

2.       Christmas Elves like to join in. {Elf’s name} loves to travel, so if you can, please take her with you when you go on trips with your family. ({Elf’s name} has asked me to tell you that she’s too old to go to school though.)

3.       Like all Christmas Elves {Elf’s name} likes to have fun, so please read the Elf Warning below.

Elf Warning!

While {Elf’s name} is usually very well behaved, she can be very mischievous. Please can you keep an eye out for her tricks and pranks and let me know if she gets into too much trouble.

A Christmas Elf’s job

{Elf’s name} will stay with you until Christmas Eve. Then she has to come home to the North Pole and hand in her Elf Report, which tells me how good you’ve been. Christmas Eve is such a busy time for me that I also need {Elf’s name} to help me load the presents onto my sleigh.

Please take good care of {Elf’s name} for me. And don’t forget, make sure you’re in bed early on Christmas Eve so that you’ll be fast asleep when I arrive.

Ho, ho, ho.

Love from

Santa Claus
