Coming to you guys with a super random blog post that I’m actually super excited to write! I wanted to share 10 Black Santa Items You Need This Holiday Season because there are actually soo many that I’ve been seeing this year! Normally there isn’t too much representation, so it’s always nice to find products, decorations, and other items that look like YOU!
I feel like I’m always looking for ethnic Christmas decorations, so when I found all these items I got massively excited. The first item I bought was a brown Santa mug, and then I found Black Santa pj shorts and pants from Old Navy! Shoutout to the lovely employee who helped me find them in-store and who also stayed up until 5am to get them when they re-stocked.
Black Santa Pajamas
The one thing I was SO EXCITED to find this holiday season were these Black Santa pajama shorts! I originally wanted the Black Santa pajama pants, but when I went looking they were sold out. I was pretty disappointed, but the super sweet Old Navy associate helped me find the shorts and I prefer these! I wear shorts to bed even throughout the winter so I don’t overheat. These were perfect!
Old Navy has now re-stocked the pajama pants in this darker shade, in a more tan shade, and in a lighter shade! They really have a breadth of options which I feel is so inclusive and amazing. That’s how the Baublebar earrings are too! They come in three shades as well. I love that brands are starting to create products for ALL customers, and not just one segment of them.
Pro Tip: If there isn’t a matching top for your pajamas bottoms, grab a plain white (or black) long sleeve tee! I always do this and they’re usually really comfortable too.
My Cute Black Santa Mug
Almost every Friday when I get off work I head to Target. Since I’ve been working from home for the past 8 months, there usually isn’t a reason for me to drive places during the week (and my bf doesn’t trust me to drive). It’s almost a little reward for making it through the week! I usually shop around to see the new items for the season, get some Starbucks, or grab a few groceries.
A few months ago, I walked over to the kitchen section and saw a BLACK SANTA MUG! Well, he’s a little more brown like I am. Still cute though! I love his little happy cheeks and the fact that his hat is the handle for the mug. It was literally the only one in the store at that point in time, but now all the Target’s near me have them in-stock! You can also get them online linked (here).
Black Santa Fuzzy Socks
I saw these socks and actually squealed! Fuzzy/cozy socks are something I am always excited to add into my wardrobe (if you can call my overflowing drawer a wardrobe). I am also wholly convinced that any woman would be happy to get a pair of fuzzy socks for the holidays! I found these socks when I went in to purchase my Black Santa pajamas.
These cutie socks are JUST $3.00 on Old Navy’s site! They’ll probably be on a Doorbusters for $1 on Black Friday (they have been the past two years), so if you want to stock up for the family, be sure to get there early. Just like the pants/shorts, these socks come in three shades of skin! The darkest ones are sold out online at the moment, but if you want the brown skin tone, shop those (here)!
The Increased Diversity in Products
Honestly I am so happy that I am able to create this post. I remember being 8 years old and American Girl FINALLY came out with a doll that (kind of) looked like me. Representation is so important to so many people (especially children) and I love that stores/brands are making more of an effort to be inclusive! I love even more that they’re being inclusive with holidays that millions of people celebrate every year.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I had so much fun rounding up 10 Black Santa Items You Need This Holiday Season. They would be amazing gifts, stocking stuffers, and/or trinkets for yourself this holiday season! These products are also so affordable and can fit into anyone’s budget. I purchased the pajamas, the mug, the socks, the ornament, AND the advent calendar (oops).
