Looking for an unexpected way to infuse your Christmas decor with major cuteness? Add Kewpie dolls.
Their large eyes, playful grins and 20th century nostalgia are especially charming during the holidays.
Even if you don’t have a Kewpie doll, you can join in the fun with ornaments, cards and pillow covers inspired by the beloved antique.
Etsy has everything you need for a Kewpie doll Christmas.

Kewpie Christmas Decor
Retro Pillow Cover by vinnieboyvintage
Let the Kewpies take over your furniture with this super soft pillow cover. It’s printed with pink candy stripes and a grinning Kewpie doll in a Santa hat.
The pillow cover comes with a hidden zipper and red tassels on the corners that you can check out in the listing.
Complement it with even more Christmas decor from the vinnieboyvintage shop. They have stockings, buntings and reusable gift bags printed with retro graphics.
Decor Plaque by blueraspberrycharms
Spruce up your shelves with these snow-loving Kewpies. This is a Rose O’Neill postcard illustration printed on rice paper and secured to hardboard to make a festive plaque.
Be sure to watch the video in the listing. You can see that the artist added a red bow and sparkling glass glitter for extra magic.
At 5 x 7 inches, it’s the perfect size to accessorize a shelf or Christmas village display. The blueraspberrycharms shop also has garland, table decor and more ideas for holidays throughout the year.
Kewpie Doll Ornaments
Plushie Ornaments by WonderTreasures
Trim the tree with these soft and squishy gingerbread ornaments. You can choose the pants or skirt style with a red or green button, or collect them all.
The artist sews cotton Kewpie doll faces onto handmade plushies. I had a hard time picking a favorite among the gingerbread, reindeer and candy cane options.
There are even more to choose from in the WonderTreasures shop, including Halloween Kewpies.
Metal Ornaments by RoseCabinCraft
Add more mischievous Kewpie dolls to your tree with these flat metal ornaments. They are made with a button press and ribbon to hang on the tree.
There are three design options, including Kewpies getting into trouble around the fireplace, playing on a wreath, or dancing with Santa.
The RoseCabinCraft shop is full of button ornaments for every style. Proceeds benefit their cat sanctuary for kitties who can’t be adopted.
Kewpie Christmas Stationery
Glitter Gift Tags by THEVELVETRABBIT
Once your tree’s all dressed up, don’t forget about the gifts! Embellish them with sparkly gift tags featuring Kewpie dolls peeking out of Christmas stockings.
These 5-inch long tags come in a set of eight. The artist paints German glitter on the tags and attaches 20-inch red ribbon to adorn your gifts.

Holly Jolly Christmas Card by LisaBuchanan
Put a smile on someone’s face with this Christmas card. It’s covered in precious Kewpies bundled up in Santa outfits.
With multiple layers of festive cardstock complete with a satin bow, this card will make a memorable keepsake for the Kewpie fan in your life. You could also add it to a card wreath or pin it to the tree to enjoy throughout the holidays.
Check out the LisaBuchanan shop to find handmade cards for all sorts of special occasions.
Christmas Wreath Card by KatyDidsCards
This Christmas card is a reproduction of a Rose O’Neill print featuring a wreath full of ribbon-bedazzled Kewpies.
You can choose from one of three Christmas greetings on the front, or leave the space under the wreath blank. There’s also an option to order this image as a print, magnet, bookplate or set of stickers.
The KatyDidsCards Etsy shop has tons of cards with vintage graphics for a nostalgic Christmas.
Christmas Stickers by boopsiedaisy
Finally, you can give all of your decor a dash of Kewpie Christmas style with these Santa Babies stickers.
The set includes 17 stickers of festive Kewpie dolls celebrating the holiday season. One of them is enjoying my favorite Christmas movie, It’s a Wonderful Life.
Plaster these stickers on gift tags, cards and ornaments. And check out the boopsiedaisy shop for more Kewpie stickers and prints.
In addition to the Etsy finds above, you can create a Kewpie Christmas by getting a new holiday outfit for your doll. I made a Christmas dress and headband for my Kewpie with this Santa and snowman fabric from Jo-Ann’s.
Etsy has lots of antique Kewpie dolls for sale to expand your collection.
You might also want to pick up a tote bag (or several) to wrap gifts.
And you can even get an “ugly” Christmas shirt that is actually chock-full of Kewpie cuteness.
I’m loving my Kewpie doll Christmas display, even if my cat Jane isn’t a fan.
