SAMTA "Straight from the Workshop", is not your typical Santa, a real beard and a real belly Grandfatherly Santa arrives in his formal traditional suit. If he removes coat and he is in workshop bibs, with woodcarving tools and projects in pockets is ready for work. I have a matching bag, bells run from work belt to ankles.
Your South Utah County specialist. Let me know your vision and we will make your Christmas party plans come alive.
He has several completed Christmas Ornaments (similar to photo) in his bag. For an additional $25 children can pick one to keep.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
Santa kept us updated on his arrival time, and the children enjoyed his carvings and his story.
Kiddos loved him!
He was personable, on time, and related to the kids very well. He brought in a spiritual element yet made it fun. He teased the kids and spent time with each one. Great Santa!!
Santa was great!
Everything worked out great. Contacts went well and was pleased with the deal. Would recommend GigSalad.
Great Santa, love the real beard, the bells, and the workshop moments. He was super cute with the kids and answered all of their questions. I would definitely book him again!!
Santa made it a special experience for all the kids for nearly an hour! They didn’t want to leave. Even little kids were very interested in all he did! Also his story on the “real” meaning of Christmas was a nice touch, since it was a ward party for all ages; & all did enjoy him!
Love the realistic costume and real beard. Kids loved the storybook, but it got a little long for some of them. Very nice personal touches and attention to each child.
He was very jolly and authentic looking. He did exactly what we hoped and expected. All the kids loved sitting on his lap. It was a special touch when he told about the symbols of Christmas with the hand carved ornaments he made.
My granddaughter is at the age of wonder and has seen her share of special visitors dressed in red. She now feels she has seen the real Santa because from his beard to his wonderful authentic costume, right down to his footwear, she is convinced this is the jolly old elf himself.
Price Range: Minimum of $50(0.5 hr), $25/0.25 hr
