There’s no faster way to get into a holly, jolly mood than to be surrounded by Christmas decorations. Something takes you over when Christmas lights twinkle, garlands frame every doorway, and stockings crown the fireplace. You instantly feel like you’re transplanted into a carol, and the festive mood kicks in. But choosing your decor can be quite the journey. Luckily, Amazon offers hundreds of options that can be sent to your door in 24 hours or less. The only issue is sifting through all those options to find the gems. But that’s where we come in.

This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

Check out our top picks for everything festive, from a mini-lighted Christmas tree to a white icing gingerbread house. (You have to see it. You’ll want it.) All the decorations you didn’t know you needed are right here. So go ahead and treat yourself to that reindeer doormat or plaid pillowcase cover — Christmas comes only once a year.


Candy cane lights are an easy way to turn a standard walkway into a magical winter wonderland. This set of 10 is easy to set up — just stake them into the ground and plug them in. The final result is a showstopper. Bonus: They add the perfect amount of extra outdoor lighting for nighttime gatherings.


For those craving a traditional atmosphere this season (without the dropped needles), focus on decorating your house with these artificial Norfolk pine garlands. These are wispier — and pricier — than the chunky spruce garlands we’re used to, but they’re more realistic and create a softer atmosphere. You can drape this 60-inch one over doorways, wrap it around mirrors, or use it as a table runner accent on the dining table.

Raz Imports

If you’re not in the mood to build a gingerbread house this year, then this resin one is the next best thing. It features a stack of provincial homes decorated with “icing” and lit with lights. You can either get this one as your centerpiece, or collect more houses in the same style to create a village.

Certified International

Whether you’re famous for your homemade holiday cookies or just want a festive place to store Santa’s chocolate chips, this ceramic jar is a must. Standing nearly a foot tall, it’s handpainted and made from sturdy earthenware, ensuring it’ll last decades. Plus, at $45, it’s currently nearly half off the list price of $78.


If you don’t have room for a full-size Christmas tree, or you want to add a smaller tree to your home for extra ambiance, this 2-foot mini tree is perfect. It’s pre-lit so you can just unpack, fluff up the branches, plug it in and enjoy the glow.


These simple, cozy knit stockings make any fireplace (or stairway or anywhere else) more festive. The set of four breaks down to just $5.50 per stocking, and they come in ivory, burgundy, green and khaki. Choose your color combo and your quantity, and place a custom order for your family.

yankee candles

The simple act of lighting a fragrant candle can change a home’s ambiance. Yankee Candles are beloved for their quality and value — this large 22-ounce size burns for over 110 hours. The scent’s festive blend of balsam, cedar and juniper berry will put a smile on your face. Bonus: While its retail price is $31, it’s currently on sale for $17.


Choose a trio of gold, silver or white gifts to bring the festivities up a notch. These sparkly boxes (the tallest one is 10 inches) provide eye-catching decor inside or out. String lights that are inside the boxes create a cheery glow — just plug this set in and prepare to be dazzled.


Pillow covers are an easy way to update your couch for the season. A traditional Buffalo Tartan plaid dons this set of holiday pillow cases, available in sizes from 12×20 inches to 22×22 inches. The durable cotton linen covers have side zippers for easy transitions and cleaning.


This wooden advent calendar is a charming holiday tradition that you can use year after year. Fill each of the 24 numbered drawers with candy, trinkets or even paper (listing fun winter activities) and watch little ones open each one, counting down the days until Santa’s visit.

ladder santa

If you just can’t pass up an animatronic Santa, this is your guy. “Mr. Christmas” climbs up and down a 17-inch ladder with his little string of LED lights. Other plush characters are also available: an elf, a reindeer and a gnome. You can also size up to the 42-inch ladder. The whole thing is battery-operated and plays songs to boot.


Who wouldn’t want to be greeted by a tiny gingerbread man and little reindeer? This natural mat is made from coconut husk fibers and features a non-slip vinyl backing. There are other holiday-themed designs, too.


Light the candles on this charming wooden piece and watch their heat turn the windmill, which turns the carousel. Charming wooden figures rotate around as it spins. Originally a German tradition, carousel pyramids have been a delightful Christmas presence since the 1700s. Four red candles are included in this delicate set.


If you’re in the market for a unique, affordable tree skirt, look no further. Woodland animals populate this folksy polyester piece, finished off with tassel and ties. The wintery theme is pretty and the skirt comes in multiple sizes.


This 24-inch pre-lit wreath is a classic piece of holiday decor with a modern lighting element. Pine cones, berry clusters and frosted branches wind among the white lights. The wreath features battery operation (three AA batteries), so no need to fuss with cords, and a timer button keeps the wreath on for 6 hours and off for 18.

Kurt S. Adler
