Growing up, I didn’t have a lot of Black characters to look up to. There were a beloved handful, sure, but the most prominent princesses, pirates, and superheroes didn’t look like me. Now in my 20s, I’m seeing more and more Black characters take centerstage in the media and it’s honestly so amazing and encouraging, especially when I consider just how impactful this is for younger generations. While I’ve come to know and love some new Black characters over time, none have impacted me more than King T’Challa and Princess Shuri from Marvel Studios Black Panther.
Of course these super characters have existed since before I was born, but they weren’t represented in the blockbuster mainstream until 2018 when the first Black Panther movie came out, dazzled us all, and became a major cultural moment. Now Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever, is finally here! (High-key, November 11 was a holiday for me.) Fresh off the movie and with Christmastime right around the corner, it’s a no-brainer to me to keep the celebration going and make this Christmas Wakandan with Hallmark’s one-of-a-kind Black Panther ornaments!
Trim the Tree with T’Challa and Shuri
We all have beloved ornaments that we bring out each Christmas. They’re basically part of the family and travel through the years with us as we grow. We pass them on, give them as gifts, and cherish them for as long as we can because—let’s face it—it doesn’t feel quite like Christmas without them! Well, if you’re a Marvel and Black Panther fan like I am, you’re for sure going to want to add these Black Panther-inspired ornaments to your family’s collection. Decorate your tree with Wakandan royalty!
The Shuri ornament is seriously one of my favorites. In classic Hallmark fashion, this ornament features a figurine of our favorite princess dressed up in her warrior garb complete with her iconic gauntlets. Shuri stands tall, tough, and fierce in this beautifully crafted resin ornament that will look amazing and bring a touch of our beloved fictional motherland to your home’s holiday décor.
The Dimensional Black Panther ornament is extremely cool. Sporting a metal dimensional head and sleek plastic figure, this small ornament shows King T’Challa dressed in his legendary Black Panther suit (complete with claws!), posed in one of his well-known fighting stances. He’s ready to pounce on any threats and protect your tree throughout the season. Get your T’Challa now because he’s sure to sell out quickly!
Now that we’ve finally returned to Wakanda, we might as well stay for the holidays! Visit Mahogany.com today and find Shuri and T’Challa ornaments in our Black Panther kits. Not sure which one to choose? Why not get both and make it a very Wakandan Christmas? (Besides, you couldn’t break up a set of warrior siblings, could you?)
