Personalised messages from Santa: Best Santa apps 2023

Personalised message from Santa

Having lived through the last few Christmas’s with covid, we have come to rely more and more on technology. On the upside, it has brought some cool apps into our lives, and none cooler than those offering personal messages from Santa!

Other than seeing the priceless look on your child’s face, a Santa app has other uses, including:

  • A gentle reminder that SANTA IS REAL for any little person heading down the non-believer path
  • Evidence that Father Christmas is watching all the little children which can encourage positive behaviour
  • For children of separated families who don’t know where they will be at Christmas, a personal message can reassure them that Santa knows mum and dad are divorced and will be able to find them, wherever they are, on Christmas Eve

Here is our list of apps to arrange personalised message from Santa.
