Christmas is upon us, which means everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit. That invariably means changing avatars to look like Santa for some reason, and if you’re using an iPhone or iPad with Face ID, you can customise your own Memoji to make it look just like the big man in the red hat.

The process of doing exactly that isn’t complicated, but if you don’t know how to do it, we can imagine it tripping a few people up. All you’ll need is a compatible device and a minute of your time, which seems like a decent proposal for something that will kick your Christmas preparations into top gear.

In order to get started, you’ll need an iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, or 2018 iPad Pro of either size. Assuming you do, creating a new Memoji is super-simple and we have our own guide on doing exactly that, so be sure to follow that if you’re struggling. Once you have your Memoji, it can be customized to suit your needs, and the Santa hat is in the headwear category, which should be at the very bottom of the list.

Once in there, the Santa hat itself is again right at the bottom of the list, although you may need to edit it to give it a bright red color just like the man himself. Unfortunately, that isn’t one of the preset colors, but tapping the multicolor option will allow you to select a different color, including the iconic red.

And that’s it – your Memoji now has a nice Santa hat, perfect for taking screenshots and then using wherever you like, including Twitter, if you really must!
