8 Must-Have Christmas Decor You Can Buy Right Now
Kickstart Your Holiday Decorating With These Essentials
When I decorate for the holidays, I always start with the basics: a tree, some lights, stockings, and classic ornaments. Because to many of us, this season is nostalgic and filled with classic traditions—so your Christmas decor should reflect that! Use traditional decor as your foundation, then just add new and creative spins on them each year. So if you’re in charge of holiday decor for the first time or if you want a refreshing new take on the holidays, these must-haves are the perfect starting point!
1. Christmas Trees
What’s Christmas without a tree, right? If you’re pressed for time or too busy to decorate a tree from scratch, get a pre-lit one like these from Wayfair. All you need to do is hang ornaments and place a topper! Get your own Christmas Tree here.
2. Tree Toppers
Speaking of tree toppers, sometimes simple designs make the most impact. With everything else going on in your space—lights, colors, textures—a clean and classic tree topper like this star from Ikea might even steal the show! Get a beautiful tree topper in this link.
3. Holiday Stockings
Looking for unique Christmas stockings instead of the usual red and white? I found some trendy designs on Urban Outfitters! This woven one combines bohemian style with classic Christmas decor. Buy this cute holiday stocking using this link.
4. Unique Ornaments
When it comes to Christmas decor, the little things matter the most. One way to keep your holidays fun and fresh is to look for unique ornaments! They’re easy to switch up every year, and they’re also a way to showcase your creativity. Buy this unique ornament by using this link.
5. Stocking Holders
A unique or eye-catching stocking holder is another way you can put a new spin on classic Christmas decor. Instead of plain hooks or boring designs, why not go for something more festive? I love this one from Pottery Barn. Buy a set of stocking holders here.
Garlands are some of the simplest Christmas decor you can have, but they make a huge impact as well! Something about garlands really puts me into a festive mood, even in the most modern and trendy of homes. If you only have room for one Christmas decor, it would be a toss up between garlands and lights! Pick this garland for your home in this link.
Whether you place them indoors or outdoors, lights are Christmas decor must-haves! And they’ll be worth the splurge because you can use them in so many different ways beyond Christmas. Buy the Christmas lights in this link.
8. Table Decor
Table decor is also classic and versatile pieces you can use all around the home this season. Style your mantel, coffee table, or side tables with festive and unique pieces like these mini trees from Crate and Barrel. The rose gold and white makes it trendy as well! The perfect table decor for you can be found on this link.
