Got T-minus three days until your holiday party? No sweat: Try Amazon. Amazon Christmas decorations don’t disappoint for fast shipping and endless ideas—you can find practically everything you need to turn your home into a winter wonderland. From the huge variety of different Christmas lights to wall decor, gingerbread houses, and beyond, there’s something here for every design style and color palette.
Are you a sucker for all things monogrammed and crafty? Then you’re probably already familiar with Etsy, which is a free-for-all for DIY queens and kings. But the handmade holiday decorations are just as fun: You can find both indoor and outdoor Christmas decorations, but Etsy really goes above and beyond when it comes to kitchen, tabletop, and living room staples. Shopping at Etsy is a great way to support small businesses and artisans while stocking up on items you can’t find anywhere else—many of them personalized too, like Etsy Christmas stockings. Bonus: It’s also great for holiday shopping, so check some gifts off your list while you’re at it. A set of holiday cutting boards for the family chef? You bet.
One major plus about Target‘s signature Wondershop is that majority of the home decor items are made to be paired with others in the collection, but you can mix and match too if you want to be ~different~. And if you’re putting together a last-minute holiday bash and need wintry touches like Christmas villages or gingerbread houses, the best Target Christmas decorations are just a drive away for many.
Chic, elevated, and (sometimes) out of the ordinary is how we’d describe Anthro‘s home decor and holiday decorations. You can swap a holiday tree for a prelit mushroom, or add every candle under the sun into your space with one of its many candelabras—your choice. But that’s not all: Ornaments, throw pillows, and kitschy-chic figurines make the cut for decor must-haves too.
We look forward to Pottery Barn‘s holiday edit each year because it gives us serious inspo for transforming spaces into a ski lodge, Nordic getaway, or North Pole–esque setting that will make Santa feel like a chump. With everything from holiday-themed pillows to Advent calendars, it offers high-quality decor—so you can ditch the standard tree skirts and ornaments and turn your space into the winter dream scene you deserve.
Yet another destination for unique items, Urban Outfitters‘ holiday lineup is right on brand for anyone who wants to stand out (in a cool way). From artificial trees in funky colors to denim stockings and more, trick out your home with nontraditional holiday touches.
Not only are Walmart‘s holiday decor options virtually endless, but the retailer’s affordable price range makes them accessible to everyone. You can be a little extra and pop an inflatable snowman on your front lawn alongside some string lights, or keep it simple with a cute wreath on your front door. Pro tip: Bring your holiday decor shopping list with you on your next grocery run and kill two birds with one stone.
The Disney store is more than just a place to stock up on character and movie merch. Sure, you can get all the Mickey and Minnie accessories to wear as you celebrate the holidays, but you can also amp up your indoor decor with throw blankets, snow globes, ornaments, and more. And don’t worry: You can totally show your love with Disney Christmas decorations and make your space kid-friendly without an overwhelming amount of polka dots and mice taking over your living room.
