To send a letter, use the card stand inside the Airport. Make sure you have Bells with you as sending a letter will cost you 200 Bells.
Select the recipient of your letter. You can only write one letter for one recipient at a time!
Select from the list of residents who will receive your letter.
You will select the date when you want to receive the letter.
Note that you can only send one future letter at a time!
Select the recipient from your Friends list.
Select from the wide array of cards. It's not necessary but it'll look nice if you select a card that matches the recipient's personality!
There are also special cards like the "Birthday-cake card" and the "Wedding card" if you want to greet somebody.
Some cards have limited availability such as seasonal cards like "Acorn card" and "Mushroom card".
Use the keyboard to write your message. Once you are satisfied, select OK!
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, there was an interface that will tell you if a resident will reply. However, New Horizons does not offer this feature.
You can go the extra mile and attach a present to show them how much you care! We recommend giving readily-available items like seashells and flowers as gift!
Take note that you cannot attach bugs and fish as present.
In some cases, a resident may write back to you. Sometimes they'll have a present for you too. This could also be influenced by how close you are to the resident, and the team is currently investigating this.
|1||Attach gift to mail|
|2||Gift through Nook Shopping|
If you have the gift on-hand, you can run to the Airport and attach the item to the letter to be sent. Again, you cannot attach fish and bugs as a present.
Alternatively, you can shop for a gift. When you place your order, you can either purchase it for yourself or for a friend.
This option has a default message to go along with the gift, but you'll be given the opportunity to edit the message!
