With all of the Christmas events in full swing, we have been seeing a lot more of the big man himself, Santa. Here are two of the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament series that showcase Santa.
Here comes Santa is series that shows Santa on many different modes of transportation. The Here Comes Santa #1 was released in 1979 and has Santa in the motor car with a bag full of gifts.
The 1993 Shopping With Santa, has Santa in his beautiful read car ready to head out to the stores.
Santa is all ready for the snow this holiday season with the 2001 Santa’s Snowplow, that is #23 in the Here Comes Santa Series. Santa will brighten everyone’s spirits by plowing the road clear with is festive tractor and plow.
More Santa! Toymaker Santa is another Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Series featuring Santa….
In 2000, Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments came out with the Toymaker Santa Series. To start it off they released Toymaker Santa #1 showing Santa on a train holding a bell.
I personally have an entire tree covered in Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments of Santa from many different series. It is one of my favorite trees in my house. I receive lots of complements on it over the holiday season.
Do you have a favorite tree in your house for Christmas? What are the ornaments?

The man of Christmas, the one who brings joy to all the little girls and boys. That, of course, is the big man himself, Santa! Every year Santa and his elves make all of the toys.
Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments has a series called, Toymaker Santa. These ornaments show Santa making and playing with the toys he and the elves have made for all of the children. Many collectors have this series on their Santa themed Hallmark Ornament tree.
How it this series began….
In 1990 the very first Toymaker Santa was released. Toy Maker Santa #1 showed dear old Santa sitting on a toy train holding a train whistle and bell.
A Rare and hard to find Hallmark Keepsake Ornament….
Many Hallmark Keepsake Ornament series will have rare or and hard to find ornaments in them. For the Toymaker Santa series Toy Maker #3 is a rare ornament.
This rare Hallmark Ornament has Santa happily riding a bike and holding a bike horn.
Another rare Hallmark Ornament in this series is the 2011 Toymaker Santa Colorway. Here Santa is riding a little red tricycle. These two Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments are rare but we have them in stock here at The Ornament Factory!
The current year….
The 2018 Toymaker Santa #19 had Santa playing many sports. He is still wearing his work apron and has a hammer ready to build or fix any toy in need.
A few closing thoughts….
Using any or all of these ornaments in the series would make a thought gift for anyone in your life. Do not forget, you do not always have to put Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments on a tree. You can also use a wreath or make a display with them. We also have miniature ornaments for smaller trees to be decorated from smaller rooms and spaces.
That’s all for now from me! Back to work I go! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I look forward to hearing all about it.
