Another thing I love about Christmas is the decorating. I love decorating for Christmas because it just puts me in the Christmas mood. While I’m not one of these that leave Christmas decorations up all year long, I do enjoy the look of Christmas decor at Christmastime because I think it’s absolutely beautiful.
Aside from the normal Wal-Mart or Lowes for Christmas decorations, there is always the internet! Believe it or not, a lot of Christmas places are popping up, selling nothing but Christmas decorations! One of my favorite places to visit is Bronners, which is an actual store in Michigan. They have everything from trees to light displays to thousands of whimsical tree ornaments. They also have a few seasonal items including Halloween and Graduation gifts. You can request a catalog but I do warn you: you’re better off shopping online instead of their catalog because their catalog is mostly filled with ornaments.
A great place for Christmas decor HAS to be the Maine (pun not intended) store, 365 Days of Christmas. You have the choice of shopping by type (Disney, Bears, Angels, etc.) or shopping by category. They have TONS of decor to choose from. The Penguins~Penguins even have their own category! One thing they do not offer, which is sad for a collector like me, are nutcrackers. Bronners has a slew of nutcrackers to choose from. But Christmas 365 has TONS of other items.
If you are looking for pretty much anything for a good price, Christmasplace.com is the place to go. They have novelty items like the Texas Gnome Cheerleader, which only sells for about $15. Like the 2 previous places mentioned, this is also a real store that you can visit in Tennessee. They are also the only place that offers a reward program for every $250 you spend. Trust me, it would be super easy to do that! For more information on the Rewards Program, visit here.
Of course, we can’t forget about Amazon. They offer pretty much anything and everything you’d ever want for Christmas decorations and competitve prices. They also offeer items from Bronner’s so it’s easier to choose an item from Bronner’s.
So if you’re ever in the mood to do some early Christmas decor shopping, keep these places in mind because it’ll save you a lot of time!
