Guide to the Santa Claus Village Post Office Gift Shop

The Santa Post Office is in the Santa Claus Holiday Village. 

Want to see Santa in Lapland? You won’t find Father Christmas here because he’s in the MAIN Santa Claus office, 100 metres away in a separate building. 

Santa Claus Reindeer are just nearby too. 

But before you go there, shop at the Post Office shop. 

Here’s 14 different Lapland gifts you can buy for friends and family at the Rovaniemi post office in Santa Claus Village.

Popular Finnish Souvenirs and Gifts from Lapland

No.1: Finland reflector –  5,50 euro.

Reflectors are VERY popular in Finland.

A Finnish local told us people wear them, or attach them to clothes, to help drivers in cars and trams to see you in the darkness. 

Especially in the odd half light.
