African American Santa Claus Message in a Bottle, Stand-up Santa, decoration, ornament


  • Details
    Our little Santa Message in a Bottle has beautiful darker shaded skin to hopefully better represent other races, including African American. We think he is nothing short of adorable. A wonderful Christmas keepsake - and, if you'd like, we can add a hook that will enable him to be hung from a Christmas tree!

    He is adorned with hand-glittered mittens, beard, mustache, eyebrows and cap. Given that he's packaged in a plastic bottle, he would definitely qualify as a unique holiday greeting card, Actually, we think he's more gift than card - something that your recipient is likely to keep for years to come. He makes a charming Christmas decoration, and since he's light in weight, he can even be adapted to hang from the tree if you'd like.

    The Christmas Santa Message in a Bottle measures approximately 5" x 1 1/2" at its widest point and is handmade using double-layered 110lb card stock with foam mounting.

    The bottle is 7 1/2" in length and does open at the bottom, so our cute little Santa can either be left in the bottle or taken out. There are three festive red glittered balls at the base, some red ribbon hanging both inside and out, and a bell hanging from the outside of the bottle.

    While our message on the card on which our Santa stands reads, "Say Hello to Santa," you have your choice of any of the following: Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy Holidays, Jingle Bells or Merry and Bright.

    A separate card will be printed with any additional message you may wish to add - as long as it doesn't exceed 60 characters. Also included is a handwritten To and From, tag that will hang from the bottle itself.
