BEST CHRISTMAS DECOR IDEAS:
1. Simple Wreath
This gorgeous, minimalistic wreath is literally perfect for any apartment or house door. It’s light enough to put up with a command hook and will make your home feel really welcoming!
2. Classic red & white stockings
I love a good neutral white stocking, but there’s nothing like having classic red stockings to go with it! Christmas stockings are Christmas decoration staple.
3. Flocked garland
This would be great for your mantel, TV table, a doorway, or even the headboard on your bed. Honestly, you really can’t go wrong with adding a flocked garland somewhere for some extra Christmas decor!
4. Christmas candle
No matter the season, you always need a good candle to add to your decor collection!
5. Christmas throw pillows
One of the most effortless ways to add to your Christmas decorations is to grab some throw pillows for your couch! I love these ones because they’re super neutral and will go with any style of decor (we all know that Christmas throw pillows can be a little too tacky sometimes haha).
6. Nativity Scene Table Toppers
This nativity scene is absolutely beautiful and would be perfect on a shelf, coffee table, or TV table.
It is on the more expensive side, but if you can afford to invest in a really good piece of decor, this would be it!!
7. White reindeer figurines
These are the perfect little figurines to add either all in one place, or to scatter throughout your home. This is seriously some of the simplest affordable Christmas decor I’ve seen!!
8. Gold candlesticks
Gold candlesticks give any space such a polished look, and bring a lot of warmth and coziness during the winter season. What’s not to love?!
9. Mini white Christmas trees
These mini white Christmas trees are the perfect way to add subtle but festive decor anywhere in your home!!
I really want to grab some of these to put in our bathroom and our kitchen.
10. Chunky throw blanket
A lot of Christmas-themed throw blankets can be a bit much, but this chunky knit throw says “winter” and “neutral” at the same time. Obsessed!!
For as long as I can remember, my Grandma has always gotten a Pointsettia around Christmas time. They’re gorgeous and the perfect addition to Christmas decor!!
Obviously the one linked above is fake, but you can easily find a real one at a local store!
12. Mini light-up birch trees
These mini birch trees are great to put on top of your dresser or by your entryway. They’re great Christmas decor ideas without actually being *too* Christmassy!
13. Colorful lights
These colorful lights can be used outdoors or indoors, and would be great to string up your walls, along your ceiling, around your doorway, or even on a balcony or front yard. Christmas lights are really a classic you cannot go without!
14. Little Christmas Village
This is the cutest little Christmas village you can put together on your coffee table, dresser, or any other surface in your home.
Growing up, my Grandma would put up something like this every year and it was always one of my favorite decorations!
15. Kitchen runner rug
This is the cutest runner rug to add festive spirit to your home during the holidays!!
16. Festive tea towels
These are some of the prettiest tea towels I have seen! They are a perfect small addition to your home as holiday decor.
17. Christmas countdown sign
I know a lot of countdown signs don’t always look the most sophisticated, but I seriously think this one is so cute. Add this to your list of must-have Christmas decor ideas!!
18. Christmas cookbook
Not only do cookbooks come in handy, they can also be some of the best kitchen decor.
I love this Christmas cookbook because not only do the dessert recipes look delicious, it also has such a nice cover for decor purposes!!
19. Stocking hangers
Whether you have a mantel or just a regular tabletop to hang your stockings off, these stocking hooks are a must!! They’re seriously such cute Christmas decor ideas.
20. Metal star stand
This metal star stand is so cute and subtle, but perfect to add on a mantel or your kitchen counter.
21. Salt and pepper shakers
These holiday salt & pepper shakers are some of the cutest holiday decor ideas I’ve seen!! It’s subtle decor but it goes a long way.
