Posted on December 15, 2016
A North Carolina woman came up with a new idea for wrapping paper after she was unable to find any featuring a black Santa Claus. The wrapping paper is covered in images of a cute Santa named Clarence Claus. The bearded Santa wears a Santa suit and carries a sack.The Daily Mail reports that Jackie Rodgers came up with the concept and she and her husband founded Greentops Gifts, which sells the wrapping paper for $7.50. They also sell mugs and sweatshirts.
In a video about the inspiration behind Clarence Claus, Jackie says she was unable to find wrapping paper with a brown Santa in local stores. She asked her friends in other U.S. cities to help with her search but none were able to find any. This is when she decided to create her own. Her husband was initially dismissive and told her, "There's no way you're going to create your own wrapping paper." She did it and now together they have their own gifts company. Take a look:
