Gift Guide: Holiday Decor 2023

November 4, 2023

I usually hold off till after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas, and it usually takes me all month long! I do however try to order anything we may need ahead of time so it I don’t have to think about it once the busy weeks come. It was hard to narrow down favorites this year! There are some really timeless options that you can re-use for many years.

1. Faux Cedar Pine Garland– This is by far one of the best faux garlands I have ever seen. We needed some for our banister, so I ordered this to hopefully re-use for years to come!

2. Gold lanterns – I have used gold lanterns for the past 5 years by our fireplace or on our porch. It is one of my favorite decor pieces for the holidays.

3. Merry Christmas Banner – I love the way this looks on a mantel. So simple and timeless.

4. Set of gold candlestick holders – I have some similar ones that I have used over and over again in all seasons!

5. + 6. Knit Stockings – I got these for the girls a few years ago. I loved that you can add personalization. They are large too!

7. Flameless tree candles with crystals – Such a beautiful set and nostalgic take on tree candles in a safe and re-usable style! I also have these clip on tree candles we have loved.

8. + 9. Gingerbread stocking holders – I love how this would make such a sweet village while also holding stockings!

10. Countdown to Christmas clock – Couldn’t resist including this – I know my kids would LOVE this visual countdown clock.

11. Golden bells – I love using these in wreaths or over banisters. This is a beautiful set!

12. Gingerbread mugs with lids – My favorite I have seen this season!

13. Nutcracker felt ornament set – We give the kids one ornament every year, and my kids still love the Nutcracker so going to give the youngest three these.

14. Mini wreath – I have used mini wreaths and ribbon on the backs of chairs, in windows, or over kitchen cabinets in the past! This is a great one from Kirklands.

15. Blue velvet ribbon – Beautiful velvet ribbon colors for wreaths, trees, stockings, etc.

16. Golden velvet ribbon

17. Cord bundler command strips – These were a game changer for hanging garland on the mantel! I was able to loop a few garlands through and it held the weight all month.

18. Gingerbread doormat – Doormats are something I can’t get to last very long! They get pretty demolished . I may have ordered this on October 31st.

19. Home for the Holidays doormat – I may have also ordered this one on October 31st.

20. Beaded garland – I share this every year because it is such a great addition to a mantel or christmas tree! I add the mini gold bells to it for our mantel.

21. Mini gold bells – These are what I pair with the beaded garland!

22. Mini potted faux tree – I have used similar ones in the kids’ rooms. They love having a little tree to add lights to.

23. Village houses– I have slowly collected village houses over the years. I ordered a few of these last year, and love that they light up and fit easily on bookshelves.

24. Advent calendar – (As pictured below) – We use this advent countdown card pack with our advent candles. Our kids take turns each night reading the scripture on the back of the card as we light a candle on the advent wreath.
