Christmas is just around the corner. While we are encouraged to stay indoors for our health and safety, we can still enjoy the glitter and joy of the season by decking the halls at home. Whether you’re into the classic red and gold theme or going for the farmhouse trend, putting up Christmas decors will instantly make the celebration merry and bright.
Aside from the traditional Christmas tree, there are several kinds of decorations that you can put together. All are capable of achieving a cozy retreat that is filled with holiday cheer. In this article, we prepared a buying guide along with our top 10 recommended Christmas decors that you can purchase online.
Let us guide you on what to consider when buying Christmas decors.
Without a doubt, Christmas trees are the most well-known Christmas décor. It symbolizes the festive season with all its lights, colorful ornaments, and glittery ribbons.
However, if you don’t have the space or the time to put up a tree in your home, you can pick other types of holiday decors that are just as glistening and will give the same yuletide vibe.
Hanging decors such as garlands, wreaths, and stockings are best for front doors, blank spaces on your walls, and awkward or hard-to-reach corners in your home. They deliver the same warmth and pop of color but in smaller portions – perfect for a tiny space.
For instance, garlands provide the greenery of a full-sized Christmas tree, but they come as strands, which are more versatile. You can display them in the staircase, around the window frame, or drape them above the TV or the headboard.
On the other hand, wreaths are typically placed on the front door serving as your “welcoming décor” that gives guests a glimpse of the styling inside the home. Just like a tree or a garland, you can customize the wreath’s decorations according to your preferred colors and ornaments.
Meanwhile, displaying stockings is a fun tradition, especially for the kids. You can hang one per family member, even add names or initials for a more personalized touch. Then, add small gifts such as candies, little toys, or stickers inside for them to open on Christmas day.
Figurines that depict holiday symbols such as Santa Claus, snowmen, reindeers, and angels are a popular choice for table decorations and centerpieces. They easily add a touch of Christmas on side or center tables, desks, shelves and kitchen counters.
Meanwhile, a nativity set or a belen adds a traditional touch to your décor while teaching your little ones at home about the real meaning of Christmas. It will help you retell the story of Christ’s birth in Bethlehem as well as the roles of Joseph, Mary and the 3 Kings.
On the other hand, a Christmas village recreates a mini winter wonderland consisting of cozy cottages, charming stores, Santa’s workshop, trains as well as warm streetlights. Somehow, it brings to life classic Christmas songs and Hallmark movies that everyone loves. You can spread these little houses and shops around your home or display them in a single area to create a “Christmas central”.
If you prefer a more minimalist design, you can add holiday accents through table runners and throw pillowcases. They’re quick and simple yet provide the same warmth or coziness as other Christmas decorations.
More importantly, there’s no need to clean up figurines or attach decors to the wall. These holiday-themed fabrics instantly stylize your existing furniture.
Of course, decorating for the holidays will not be complete without the twinkling lights, which are perfect for both indoors and outdoors. Safety is of utmost importance so make sure that the product is DTI-approved.
For the best fairy light effect, opt for white or warm white LED lights. These enhance the color of your Christmas décors and ornaments. Moreover, LED lights produce less heat and shine brighter than compact fluorescent lamp or CFL bulbs. These are also more energy-efficient, which means there is less electrical consumption.
Meanwhile, lanterns and the iconic parol are best for jazzing up the terrace, garage, or backyard. This star-shaped décor has been a staple in Filipino households, whether made of capiz shells, bamboo and paper, or colorful plastic.
Buying Christmas decors can be overwhelming. There are so many choices and it’s harder to visualize when you have several decorating ideas in mind. So, it is important to pick a theme in order to filter or narrow down the items that you see online.
Having a theme gives you a unified motif that will tie together all the decorations in your home. You can easily follow a theme by looking at pegs or inspirations from Pinterest.
Choose a particular style such as farmhouse, which focuses on wood decorations and red plaid or buffalo patterns; winter wonderland, which uses the elements of snow and references to the North Pole; or Nordic-inspired, which incorporates the Scandinavian style of using neutral colors and natural materials.
You can also choose Christmas decors according to a color scheme – the most classic of which is the traditional combination of red, green, and gold. For a more modern take, you can go for a monochromatic look by selecting just one color and pairing it with white, silver, or another metallic accent.
However, if you love everything bright and merry, you can always choose all the colors and have a candy or rainbow-inspired motif in your home.
For families with little kids, it’s more fun to pick a theme that centralizes on an iconic Christmas figure or symbol like Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer, the Gingerbread man, angels, or stars.
This way, it’s a lot easier to select Christmas decors because your search is essentially trimmed down to a single character.
