Quite the little gift shop here. Lots of kids waiting to sit on Santa's lap, so I decided to eat the great fudge and by gifts for my fiancé. An attraction worth visiting if near North Pole, Alaska.

If you are in Fairbanks, you must visit the North Pole where Santa Clause's house is. A fun place to shop and visit Santa with ornaments that you have not seen anywhere else. They now have a fudge/espresso area where you can purchase refreshments to warm up with. You will not be disappointed. You can also see the reindeer that... More

A magical wonderland, the Rv Park was fantastic, a resident reindeer and a friendly greeting from Santa in his gift shop. Pity the grandchildren weren't on holiday with us

Loved the Santa Claus House. A trip to North Pole just wouldn't be complete without it. Everything you would expect including Santa, his sleigh and the reindeer.

Ok, so maybe dad won't be completely impressed, but mom will be overwhelmed with gift options! With a fine cup of North Pole Coffee in your hand, you can shop this one and only store of its kind. Yes, there are other Santa shops, but this is the Real Deal! My wife regularly find a new addition to her Christian... More

So many ornaments and souvenirs for travelers it is rather overwhelming, but in a good way. Many of the gifts were Alaskan Made which were rather unique. Ornaments are everywhere so there is bound to be something to catch your eye.

Make sure this in on your bucket list. Plan to spend some time looking at the different options to send your kids, nieces, nephews, or other youngsters. And surprisingly - the fudge is really good! Don't forget to go see the reindeer, and get a picture in the big-man's chair!

This place is every child's dream! Santa is AMAZING! Friendly, kind, & authentic. The store is great too. Has everything one could ever want that is related to Christmas. They have unique & beautiful merchandise. A bit pricey, but this is Alaska. One drawback: the cashiers/employees could be more friendly & Christmas-spirited. I asked one lady to take a picture...
