This Rudolph-inspired oven mitt is one of the best homemade Christmas gifts for anyone you know. However, did you know that Santa's reindeer were first referenced in The Night Before Christmas? Also known as A Visit from St. Nicholas, this poem from 1823, is still a Christmastime staple. However, only Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen were named. It wasn't until the story, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, was published in 1939 that Rudolph became part of Santa's sleigh-pullers. The song of the same name followed in 1949, increasing the popularity of the now infamous red-nosed reindeer. There's no character quite like Rudolph and he has become one of the most iconic Christmas characters known by adults and children alike. They were right, Rudolph would go down in history. Christmas wouldn't be the same without him, especially with ideas for homemade Christmas gifts like this one.
