One of the best parts of the holiday season is getting out the boxes of decorations, opening them up to see what’s in there, and then decorating the tree and other items in my home. Each year, I buy a few new items (sometimes to replace old/broken ones, other times because my style has changed a bit), but I tend to stick to the same large pieces year after year.
Year to year, the following five stores put out great collections of Christmas and holiday decorations (check out my post from last year featuring Target’s collection— maybe some of the items are still in stock). It’s no surprise I included Target again this year, along with Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Anthropologie.
Here are my picks for the best Christmas decor for 2021.
Target Christmas Decor
Target has hundreds of new arrivals in terms of Christmas decor, including exclusive lines from Hearth and Hand with Magnolia, Opalhouse by Jungalow, and Threshold with Studio McGee. I ordered a handful of new ornaments this year from Target, including these classic red balls and then a few adorable faux fur deer ornaments.
Oversized Tree Embroidered Lumbar Throw Pillow | XL Wreath with Bell | Bottle Brush Tree Decorative Figurine Set | Faux Fur Deer Decorative Figurines Set | Ceramic House Set | Bold Center Stripe Stocking
Crate & Barrel Christmas Decor
One thing I love about Crate and Barrel is the neutral color palette of most of their decor items. I’m boring when it comes to Christmas decor – I stick to neutrals with pops of reds and greens, so it’s right up my alley. I also love the natural wood elements of a lot of their holiday items, a few which are seen below.
LED Ceramic Tree Decorations | Black Reindeer Decoration | Washed Cotton Velvet Pillow | Evergreen Trees Paper Placemats | Wooden Snowman Decoration | Wooden Reindeer Decoration | Wooden Star Christmas Tree Ornament | White Ceramic Church
Pottery Barn Christmas Decor
Pottery Barn’s line of holiday decor features lots of dark reds, greenery, and gnomes. Lots of gnomes this year.
Merry & Bright Doormat | Faux Silver Dollar Eucalyptus Wreath | Felt Candy Cane Ornament | Christmas In The Country Guest Towels | Reindeer Ceramic Mugs | Plaid with Sherpa Back Pillow Cover | Wooden Nutcrackers | Painted Metal Merry Christmas Sign | Monique Lhuillier Prism Candle Set – Winter Berry
West Elm Christmas Decor
How cute are the wooden houses and the fox pillow below? Or maybe I’m just a weirdo who likes things with foxes on them?
Anthropologie Christmas Decor
I’m obsessed with the gingerbread house doormat at Anthropologie below. They also have a lot of cute, kitschy items for the holidays like colorful ceramic houses and fun ornaments.
Gingerbread House Doormat | Frosted Bottle Brush Tree Candle | Seasons Greetings Hooked Pillow | Nathalie Lete Santa’s Sleigh Serving Platter | George & Viv Light-Up Holiday Village | Susannah Garrod Merry Moments Boxed Candle
