Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, visiting Santa will likely look very different this year. In recent weeks, many platforms have been offering online virtual visits in lieu of the traditional visit to department stores. While many malls are still offering in-person visits with social distancing and mask requirements, if you’re looking for a virtual alternative, we’ve rounded up some options below.

Macy’s Santaland

While an in-person experience with Santa is unlikely at Macy’s this year, the department store is offering a replacement at-home experience: Santaland. Have your little ones meet Santa, take a ride on the Santaland Express and track Santa’s holiday calendar to see where he’ll be.

Sam’s Club

The chain is offering virtual visits with Santa that can be booked online. You’ll also receive a photo and a free video to download and share after the visit.

Jingle Ring

Book a call with Mr. and Mrs. Claus for $25 and up or get a recorded message for $20 and up. You can choose a language preference, and you’ll receive a free photo after the call.

Santa’s Club

The site is providing three tiered options designed to cater to your individual needs starting from $35. Depending on which option you choose, get a message from Santa, a keepsake video, a letter from the North Pole and more.
