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.
Best Santa Post Office Merchandise
Our top pick is this Santa Claus Christmas Coin.
You can’t buy it in any of the other Rovaniemi shops in Santa Village.
The Santa Claus Christmas Coin is 5,50 euro
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.
No.2: Traditional Paper Advent Calendars from Finland
Advent Calendars in Finland feature famous Finnish characters, and Tomten gnomes too.
Other ones feature Elves, and the Czech Mole character.
No.3: Moomin Advent Calendar
The Moomin characters are one of Finland’s most popular story characters, and beloved by all.
