We all need an extra dose of Christmas joy this year. And hearing from Santa sure might raise our spirits given the stressful, tumultuous year it's been. Well, Portable North Pole has just the remedy for you: Personalized video greetings from Ole Saint Nick himself.

That's right, you can get a customized video message from Santa without plopping down any cash or coal, as we recently learned from To get your hello from Mr.Claus simply download the app in the App Store or from Google Play. Once you've got the app, you can choose from 60+ videos, calls, and video calls with both free and premium in-app purchase options available. If you opt to spring for a paid greeting, take comfort in knowing that Portable North Pole donates up to 5% of web purchases to children's hospitals across the globe.

Per the app's description, youngsters and kids at heart can look forward to Santa saying their name, showing their picture, and more in his video or call, as well as letting them know "if they've made it onto his Nice List." (Deep breath.) For those who know they'll be using this app frequently, you can subscribe with the annual Magic Pass option for access to all their premium video and calls, multi-device access, and exclusive bonuses. Or, opt for the Ultimate Pass, which gives you all of the Magic Pass features for 10 years.

Since traditional gatherings with Santa Claus or mall portraits with Kris Kringle are off this year in light of the coronavirus pandemic, it's an especially meaningful time to gift one of these messages to a loved one so they can at least experience the magic of Santa virtually.
