You Can Now Buy Mini-Santa Hats For Your Chicken Or Hedgehog

Make sure everyone can celebrate Christmas.

There are less than six weeks to go until Christmas and naturally many people are getting ready for the big day.

The coronavirus pandemic means December 25 will be different for people everywhere. Some are gearing up for a quiet, chilled meal for two, whereas some other lucky ducks will get their whole family and friends round to celebrate.

If you want to go a step further than just putting up a Christmas tree, then why not try Santa hats for everyone. And we mean everyone.

A crafty Etsy user has been selling Santa hats for chickens and other small animals and they are positively adorable.


HandMadeAmErika says the hat is suitable for hedgehogs, ferrets, iguanas and people's fingers (if you're that way inclined).

Erika said: "The base is a little larger than the size of a quarter and comes with a delicate elastic chin strap that is adjustable. All of my hats have a sturdy card stock interior and are built to last!

"If you are unsure of the size, test-fit your pet with a quarter on the top of his head to get an idea of how this hat will fit."

She's also just started making larger hats for rabbits and similarly sized animals.

You can grab them for a little more than $15 each and costs $20 to deliver to Australia. She's sold more than 2,000 of these bad boys and admits that while stock is low at the moment, there is plenty more to come.

She's also received hundreds of reviews, with one person saying: "Perfect little hat for my hedgehog! It is very sturdy and amazing quality!"

Another added: "Adorable little hat, perfect to sit upon my hedgehog's adorable little head. 10/10 would annoy my hedgehog with this again."

A third wrote: "I love this hat so much! Erika was wonderful and made the perfect hat! Thank you so much."


Speaking of Christmas, if you are buying a tree, then you might want to wait a tiny bit longer to make sure it's looking its best for December 25.

Many people are choosing to welcome the festive season a little earlier this year, in a bid to help drum up a bit of excitement during an otherwise pretty tiresome period.

Speaking to the Daily Record, Liam Lapping from Flowercard said: "The day you buy your Christmas tree is one of the most important decisions if you want to make sure it's still intact throughout the festive season.

"If you take your Christmas tree down straight after New Year's Eve then you should buy your tree on November 28th.

"However, if you take your Christmas tree down on the Twelfth Night then you should buy your tree on December 2nd December."
