For many, Christmas is a time to celebrate and reflect on the year gone by. It’s a time to catch up with relatives, give and receive gifts, … or publish patents?

In celebration of ‘IntellectYULE Property’, we will be looking at some fun and quirky Christmas ideas that have been patented over time.

Christmas Tree Teabag

If you feel like a cup of English breakfast tea needs all the trimmings (not just milk and sugar) you need a Christmas tree-shaped tea bag. With this patent filed by Karen Tillquist in 1996, this tea bag will surely ‘light up’ the festive period.

Edible Gift-Wrap for Pets

We love to spoil our pets at Christmas, however, for many cats and dogs, the packaging is far more exciting than the gift itself! Susan Lea Carlson has the answer to this with her 2012 patent for edible gift-wrap for pets.

Cactus Christmas tree

For those who aren’t inclined to cold weather foliage, you can get your very own Cactus Christmas tree, patent originally filed by Kay Lynn Como in 2002. Although a sharp warning, this is not for those with ‘prickly’ dispositions…

Kit for replicating a visit from Santa Claus

As many of you know, Santa is taking special precautions this year to keep himself and others COVID safe, so he has asked many parents to help him out (just this once!) with the distribution of gifts. With this kit (patent published in 2004 by John I. Colak) you can keep the magic alive.
