I love Christmas—the food, the gift-giving, the Christmas Eve service at church. I especially take joy in decorating my home for the holiday. The weekend after Thanksgiving, my husband emerges from the basement with multiple storage bins full of Christmas magic—lights, greenery, ornaments, dishes, cards, and wrapping paper. We blare jazzy Christmas tunes and in a matter of hours, our home becomes a winter wonderland.

Four years ago, approximately a month before Christmas, my husband and I, who are both Caucasian, became parents to an African American baby girl through domestic adoption. Two years later, we became parents again, to another brown baby girl. As each Christmas passed, I became increasingly aware of the lack of holiday décor and cards that reflected my children’s race. So, as any good Krazy shopper would do, I began my hunt, coupons in hand, of course.

If you, like me, are on the hunt for Christmas décor that reflects specific races, allow me to make your quest a bit easier this year.

Here’s what I have found so far this season:

  • African American Santa “dolls” at JCPenney. The Santas come in various sizes and styles, ranging from a traditional Santa to a baker-style Santa. If you order online, there’s a drop down menu that says “pick a product” where you can select a white or “ethnic” Santa. The 18 inch tall Santa is currently 50% off, making it $24.99.
  • Pottery Barn Kids Christmas stockings featuring brown girls. Options include an angel, a ballerina, or a doll. If you have a PB credit card, you get occasional special offers. My current coupon is $25 off any $50 purchase. And stockings qualify for free shipping.
  • Hallmark offers a few diverse ornament collections: Mahogany, Sinceramente, and UNICEF. The Mahogany line includes an African American Santa, male angel, and female Barbie. The Sinceramente line offers several choices including a poinsettia and three wise men. Though Hallmark coupons many not be used on ornaments, Kohl’s carries some Hallmark ornaments in stores in which coupons can be used. Kohl’s is currently allowing customers to redeem Kohl’s cash which can be used on ornaments. There is also a printable coupon for 20% off your entire purchase expiring 11/20.
  • Hobby Lobby offers a vast array of Christmas merchandise. Some stores even sell ethnic Christmas décor. Check their ads often. They run great sales on Christmas decor and you can almost always find a 40% off coupon!
  • Willow Tree currently sells two brown-skinned female figurines—Blessings and With Love . Current issues of Parents and Parenting contain a $5 off $10 Hallmark purchase coupon which can be used on Willow Tree items sold at participating stores.
  • Totsy has ten holiday African American angels, figurines, and snow globes to choose from at 50% off or more.
  • Macy’s sells an African American tree-topping angel, currently on sale for $47.99. In store I have seen African American Santa dolls and ballerina ornaments, which are currently 50% off. There is the potential to save even more as posted by the KCL.
