"Santa Baby" is a 1953 Christmas song written by Joan Javits and Philip Springer.
The song is a tongue-in-cheek look at a Christmas list addressed to Santa Claus by a woman who wants extravagant gifts such as sables, yachts, and decorations from Tiffany's.
"Santa Baby" was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt with Henri René and his orchestra in New York City, in July 1953. The song was a huge hit for Kitt, and she later said that it was one of her favorite songs to record; she reprised it in the 1954 film New Faces
"Santa Baby" has been covered in recorded and live performances by many artists throughout the years.
