Santa hat detail
Santa hat chathead

The Santa hat is a tradeable discontinued item. Santa hats appeared randomly on the ground all over RuneScape on 25 December 2002, when players could pick up as many as they wanted. They are now a purely cosmetic item having the stat bonuses removed upon transition to Runescape 2, and no requirement to equip.

Although Jagex described the hats as "just a bit of fun" at the time, they have since become an expensive and much-coveted item amongst players.

15 Days of ChristmasEdit

During the 15 Days of Christmas in 2013, this item, along with other Christmas-themed equipment, were given the Hybrid style of combat, and stats that scaled with the player's levels. This was so players could use these items in combat to assist in hunting for festive crackers during the event.


  • The Santa hat was called "Santa's hat" in RuneScape Classic. It also gave +3 to magic.
  • During the 2010 Christmas Event, the Forgotten Warriors (male and female) within Daemenheim would occasionally wear either a Santa hat or a Christmas scarf. The Dungeoneering Skillcape on a stand beside Thok had its normal hood replaced with a Santa hat for the duration of this event.
  • During the 2014 Christmas Event, most bosses wore a Santa hat.
