Santa baby, just slip a sable under the tree for me,
Been an awful good girl Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight!
Santa baby, a ’54 convertible too, light blue,
I’ll wait up for you, dear Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.
Think of all the fun I’ve missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed.
Next year, I could be just as good If you check off my Christmas list!
Santa baby, I want a yacht and really that’s not a lot,
Been an angel all year Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa honey, one little thing I really need, the deed to a platinum mine,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex and chzecks,
Sign your “X” on the line Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight.
Come and trim my Christmas tree with some decorations bought at Tiffany.
I really do believe in you, let’s see if you believe in me!
Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring, I don’t mean on the phone,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight!
Hurry down the chimney tonight! Hurry, tonight!
First performed by the multi-talented American entertainer, Eartha Kitt (who the great Orson Welles once called “the most exciting woman in the world”) “Santa Baby” became one of her two Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 when it released in 1953 with Henri René and His Orchestra and became the bestselling holiday song that year. Since then, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood, Ariana Grande, Gwen Stefani, among others, have recorded what has become a Christmas classic—but none came close to Eartha. If Santa Baby asks you what you want for Christmas, follow Eartha’s lead—and our suggestions.

“Santa baby, a ’54 convertible too, light blue…”
You would stop traffic behind the wheel of a 1954 Cadillac 62 Series deVille Coupe Convertible in light blue. With its 331 horsepower V8 engine it’s got plenty of power, a longer wheelbase than the Eldorado type, V-shaped golden crest ornaments on the hood and deck, whitewalls, and fluted beauty panels to decorate the lower rear body sides. Tell your Santa Baby that if he finds you one in new, original condition with low mileage, he should be prepared to spend $85,000. After all, you’ve been “an awful good girl,” just like the song says…right?
“Santa baby, I want a yacht…”
The 54-meter VITTORIA EXPLORER BOWSPIRIT SYT yacht is a beauty with its strong lines, generous outdoor space (which includes a large swimming pool at the stern of the Beach Club deck and second on the highest sun deck), and a Crow’s Nest above the Hard Top which affords a 360-degree panoramic view that goes to the horizon. Depending upon the layout, this magnificent yacht offers five or six cabins, quarters to accommodate eight crew members, and a wheelhouse with a walk-around console—just one of the many common areas where guests can hobnob. Powered by MTU 16V2000M61 engines, the Explorer Bowspirit can reach a top speed of 16-knots. Just remind your Santa Baby that you’ve been an angel all year when he writes the check, about $25 million. firstname.lastname@example.org
“One little thing I really need, the deed to a platinum mine…”
The Salt Chuck Mine in the Kasaan Project area on the Prince of Wales Island in the Ketchikan Mining District of Alaska is for sale. Discovered in 1915, the mine had three glory holes that produced copper, silver, gold, platinum, and was the world’s largest source of palladium until the outbreak of World War II in 1941, when the mine closed. Here’s your chance to become an explorer and mine new veins—who knows, you may discover the Mother Load. Contact Skeena Resources Limited—but if you don’t want an entire mire, Skeena just started trading on the New York Stock Exchange November 1, 2021 (ticker SKE) so it might be wiser just to buy some stock. www.skeenaresources.com

When Eartha sang “Santa Baby” and asked for some decorations from Tiffany’s, she probably was talking jewelry. But Tiffany does make some wonderful ornaments and what’s more, they’re affordable. www.tiffany.com

Last but not least, if you want your Santa Baby to get you a ring, you’ll find an Aladdin’s Cave worth of jewels at Tiffany’s. When you ask him, remember to add, “Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight!” www.tiffany.com
