Santa always leaves behind a trail of cookie crumbs or footprints after dropping off gifts. Here are some easy and fun hacks to make Santa's presence even more memorable! Check it out on this episode of "Holiday Hacks."

1. Set out cookies for Santa, "donuts" for the elves (aka Cheerios) and carrots for the reindeer. Take a few bites and leave a note from Santa.
