Best Santa costume 2019: from classic Santa to inflatable Santa

The Sun 0 month ago

CHRISTMAS JUST isn’t Christmas without a good ol’ Santa Claus.

If you have children, you can usually get away with skipping the dressing up yourself and taking them to a local Santa’s grotto, although chances are, you’ll probably need to don the red suit at some point for a school Christmas fete or for a kids’ party.

These Santa costumes suit all budgets and occasions

There are plenty of other reasons you’ll need a Santa costume this Christmas, whether you’re taking part in a fun run for charity, need a great costume for a holiday party or just want to get into that festive spirit and have a bit of a laugh.

Depending on what you want to spend – and the look you’re going for, there’s a Santa costume for every aesthetic – and budget.

You can even find an inflatable or ride-on Santa look for more of a comedy effect.

Fancy dress Christmas wear is all over the shops, so you can also enjoy a bit of Santa’s energy in your downtime: a Santa onesie might be the best choice if you need a look that you can have a movie marathon in.

Arguably, the most important part of the Santa outfit is the beard – some Father Christmas costumes include them, others require you to purchase them separately.

1. Best all rounder Santa costume

This Santa costume ticks every box – and comes with the beard

This is a great all-rounder choice for a Santa costume: it includes the red jacket and trousers, black belt and boot covers, a Santa hat, beard, glasses and gloves, so it’s very comprehensive. We also think it’s good value at under £30 considering the quality and all of the accessories you get.

‘Purchased this for “Santa” who does the grotto at my work. For the price I’m very impressed! The top and bottoms are a good size, I imagine most grown men would fit into this. Material not too thin not too thick, “Santa” had previously tried a more thick luxurious suit but wanted something more lightweight so this is perfect’, writes one reviewer.

2. Best embellished Santa costume

This Santa costume is perfect for a more traditional Santa look

We think of this Santa costume as the ‘Christmas market Santa’: it’s got a lovely burgundy colour, long embellished coat with capelet and fur trim, and should also include all of the accessories (expect to receive: mustache and beard, belt, shoe covers, hat, pants, top, gloves).

3. Best inflatable Santa costume

This inflatable Santa suit is sure to get a laugh

A fantastic choice for parties or charity runs/matches, this inflatable Santa suit will ensure you’re the centre of attention in every room.

It inflates quickly (you need to purchase 4 AA batteries to make it work), and includes accessories like the Santa hat, beard and white gloves.

Perfect for relaxing over the festive period – and another good choice for any charity sporting events.

5. Best ride-on Santa costume

This Santa costume will get a laugh – and you don’t even need to change your clothes

This costume looks like you’ve made a massive effort… but you don’t even need to change your own outfit to make an impact. This piggyback costume from Morph has self-stuff legs you can fill with tissue or paper.

The general consensus? ‘Was a great laugh wearing this’, writes a fan.

This hooded Santa costume for women is great for female Santas or Mrs. Claus

A lovely red hooded dress with white fur trim and embellished bodice, this female Santa dress is ‘lovely’, ‘snug’ and ‘warm’. Perfect for a Mrs. Claus look as part of a couple’s costume, and also works beautifully for any female Santas.
