Christmas is a loved and a celebrated holiday, and planning for it is a big deal. Most people ensure that their halls are decked with reindeer, a holiday tree, twinkling lights, candles, snowmen, garlands, stockings lining the mantle, and of course, Santa Claus! The following is a list of must-have Christmas décor items to make your holiday Merry and bright:
1. Christmas tree
Christmas without a family tree isn’t Christmas at all. Even if it’s a small tabletop tree; you cannot celebrate Christmas without one. When buying a Christmas tree, you can opt for artificial Christmas trees or fresh pines to decorate your family room, and store presents beneath. Purchasing a solid tree stand ensures the tree is upright, and if you opt for a fresh evergreen tree, ensure it is well hydrated. Flocked Christmas trees are also stylish.
Decorating a Christmas tree is fun, especially if you play Christmas songs and drink some festive nog while decorating. When decorating, there are many ornament options to choose from, including glass colored red, green, silver and gold bobbles, metallic stars, tinsel, or eclectic string lights. However, personalized Christmas ornaments make the tree really special. You can opt to have ornaments monogrammed with initials or names, emblazoned with old family photos, special dates (i.e., baby’s first Christmas) for every member of the family including the pets.
Christmas wreaths are beautiful decorations for front doors or windows. Wreaths are circular decorations used on either the interior (looking out) or exterior. Hanging a festive Christmas wreath on your front door welcomes all guests. You can purchase Christmas wreaths made of natural materials like balsam, pine cones, holly, or artificial wreaths made from festive feathers, garland and battery powered lights.
4. Monogrammed Christmas stockings
Everyone loves to wake up in the morning to find little goodies stuffed in a stocking hanging on the fireplace mantel on Christmas morning. Monogrammed Christmas stockings are a cherished tradition for many families. These are personalized with monogrammed names, stitched initials and even scanned photos.
5. Dancing Santas
Children look forward to Christmas because of Santa. Throughout the year, their parents use Santa’s name to make their children behave well so that Santa can bring them gifts and toys if they are good little boys and girls. Each home with a child would benefit from a dancing Santa, or a Santa figure so big and little children can anticipate his arrival on Christmas eve.
Festive garland is a Christmas decoration that is fun and festive in a variety of places around your home. Fresh evergreen garland adds a delightful scent when hung on the fireplace mantel, bedroom, headboard, and staircase. Tinsel garland can be used as faux ice, thanks to the shiny and metallic look that brightens up every home.
7. String lights
LED Christmas string lights are a must-have when decorating; the lights can be strung inside and out, along your roof line, the mantel, staircase, and more. People love light and brightness; hence, Christmas string lights will add a touch of light to your tree for cozying around the fireplace with a festive beverage. String lights can be used throughout the year; thus, it’s an investment and a decoration that will be useful and saves the family a lot of money.
