I’m not around Gift Drop Day, can I drop my gift off early or late?

Yes, but first please see if you have a friend or neighbor who will be attending Gift Drop and you can send your wrapped and labeled gifts with them. Having someone deliver on Gift Drop is the easiest way and most efficient way to ensure the gifts are sorted and stored where they need to be. If you can’t find someone, email santa@new.bedfordsanta.com or call David at (781)275-7631.

What are the gift restrictions?

  • Keep gifts small. The total number of gifts for your stop MUST fit inside a single standard-sized pillowcase. We will not be able to accept any gifts larger than 10″x7″x3″ in size.
  • One gift per child.
  • Wrap all gifts for the same address in the same wrapping paper.
  • Secure all wrapped gifts with tape, not string.
  • For each present, on a detachable tag (a “yellow sticky” works fine), print one family name and address on the front of the tag, print the child’s first name and age on the back of the tag.
  • If the child is a visitor, please use the “family name” of the family the child is visiting, because, if we must call in case of questions, we want to call the home where the gift will be delivered.
  • For last minute gifts, call us at (781)275-7631 and leave a message to request special arrangements.
