Everyone who has come to my page asks me how I got started. Well, I was excited to see Black Santa on the shelves at Target! So, you could say that this time of the year is incredibly important to me and my time to shine! For my TWB Girls: These items are not Black Owned or Founded but they are representative of Black people.


Last year there were a few items that were gone before we could even think about wanting them. I am going to list those items here and also a few new things that I think will be a hot commodity this year. Enjoy!





Black Angels-- This is the number one request from the TWB community. This one will be gone before Black Santa starts checking his list the first time.









Black Nutcrackers--

There are three colors online now and if Target stays true to the holiday season there will soon be a 2022 nutcracker as well!











The Black Santa Advent-- I bought this one in 2020 and have hung it up every year since. My kids love to move the cute little candy cane to the next number. (They like to count up and I prefer to countdown. Which do you do?)









This Santa moves up and down to a cute Christmas tune. He would be adorable on an entry table or under the tree! Purchase Here!











Black Mrs. Claus--

There isn't even anything else to say?

The way Black women support Black Women, it is no wonder Mrs. Clause is the second most asked for item in the TWB community.









Hanging Pre-Lit Animated Musical Santa













This ballerina will sell out the minute everyone realizes it is back online for purchase. So, now! RUN!

Animated Black Ballerina.









Black Santa Climbing the Tree--


Confession I have this one but my mom found a Black Santa with grey hair at Cracker Barrel and that one is dang cute! If I find it again this year I will update this post with that one as an honarable mention!








Animated Black Santa Coming Down Chimney When he comes down the chimney, his feet dangle! This is what I chose for my entry table!












Black Joy Jammies













Black Santa Jammies Option 2








I don't care how technology forward the world gets I will never not send holiday cards!!

Here are some options to look out for:

10ct Anoosha Syed Sorted Holiday Cards


Anoosha Syed (View Anoosha's instagram profile) is a Pakistani-Canadian illustrator who is working with Target to design these amazing holiday cards. They are so incredibly cute and make me feel the spirit for sure!




In Conclusion, here are the Top 4 Must Haves according to TWB if you do not want to miss out this Holiday Season:


  1. Black Angels

  2. Black Mrs. Claus

  3. Black Nutcrackers

  4. Black Ballerina

XOXO Gossip --just kidding! (if you aren't into pop culture feel free to ignore this joke LOL)
