So here we are. Blogmas day 11. Everyone probably already has there Christmas/holiday decorations out and up already, but if you are looking for some new ones, I have rounded up some of my favorite places to look for decorations.
(Just a note before moving forward, I am American, so all of these will be American stores. That said, if there are good decoration stores in other countries, please share them below!)
Target is just a beautiful store. You can get your decorations, your Christmas gifts, and your Christmas snacks all in one place. But the nice thing is, Target has a range or prices. So you can shop their dollar section, find decorations for $3, or find some other pricier options that still won’t break your holiday budget.
- Homegoods/T.J. Maxx
A Homegoods just opened up near me, and I still haven’t managed to go! And it is one of my favorite decoration stores because it just has such cool stuff in it. T.J. Maxx is owned by the same company, so they have similar stuff in there as well, but Homegoods is all about the home, and I find it easier to find things in. The T.J. MAxx’s I have been to have a lot of stuff everywhere when I go in and it gets overwhelming. But Homegoods is simple. It’s all about the home.
- Christmas Tree Shop
I am not sure how widely spread this store is, but it is literally for Christmas. It has stuff all year round, but it was made for Christmas. They also have a good range of prices for finding decorations. And you can find anything from traditional decor to Christmas flamingos. I might have a few Christmas flamingos
This is a store I like, but don’t go into too often because it can be pricey and it is a little religious-based. But Jesus is the reason for the season, so if you like inspirational quotes and bible-stuff, then this store is for you. It isn’t all God-loving and everyone can find something. And the products are good quality in my opinion.
- Dollar store
This is the place to go for quick blog props or picture props or small decorations. Or any foliage you may need for DIY decorations. Dollar Tree tends to be my favorite dollar store. It’s clean and has things that don’t snap apart when you look at it.
I have never bought anything from this store because it is definitely out of my budget, but they have such cute things! If you can afford it, I would pop on the website and have a look.
I should just be an affiliate. Amazon is like a God-send. You can find anything and everything. And it comes right to your house. And if you have prime, boi. If I had the extra budget, my house would be so festive right now.
- J.C. Penney’s or Macy’s
There is something about department stores that just screams Christmas. And they have good quality products. They fall in the middle-class of price ranges, but the products you are going to get will last a while.
- A.C. Moore/Michaels (craft stores)
The nice thing about these craft stores is you can DIY or you can buy an already made product. Or a little of both. You can’t go wrong with either. I like making Christmas crafts, but sometimes my projects come out a little wonky. I tend to like A.C. Moore over Michael’s (don’t ask why, I just do). But that brings us to our next point…
- Esty or DIY
If you want an original Christmas/holiday then buying from an artist or making it yourself is the best option. Anyone can buy a wreath, but one handmade will make you feel happy and more willing to show off your house. And original artwork by an artist is also something to show off too because most people will have not seen it on advertisements or in-stores already.
There are LOADS of stores you can get decorations from, these are just a few of my favorites. If you have a favorite store, please share! Also tag me or tweet me @renadeer in your decoration photos! I want to see everyone’s displays no matter where the decorations came from!
