Get ready for the most wonderful time of the year (and avoid the crowded stores) with our guide to the best places to shop online for affordable holiday decor.
Excuse us while we buy everything festive on Etsy. The homemade marketplace has gorgeous holiday finds at various price points, including these Scandinavian bird ornaments for under $8, this sweet advent calendar bunting at $35 or this $17 Hanukkah garland.
In our experience, one of Target's (many) strengths at holiday time is string lights. The retailer offers a huge selection -- various colors and lengths, LED options, battery-powered varieties and more -- for well under $20 a pop.
We love how Cost Plus World Market's seasonal merchandise feels so cozy, like something you'd make yourself (if you had limitless time and DIY talent). This $29.99 owl throw pillow caught our eye right off the bat. (And P.S., this site is also an amazing resource for gift wrapping and entertaining supplies.)
CB2 has tons of sleek, modern holiday pieces at excellent prices and is the home of the Novogratz Collection, designed by husband and wife team Robert and Cortney Novogratz. We love these super fun and festive disco ball ornaments -- a steal at $1.95 – and these modern bulb ornaments, just $2.95 each.
A solid resource for holiday decor in general, Pottery Barn’s selection of Hanukkah-appropriate decor and entertaining is especially eye-catching. These mercury glass tidbit plates, at $29.50 for a set of four, are totally on trend yet manage to feel like heirlooms at the same time.
Wayfair has so much stuff, it can almost be overwhelming. But if you're willing to spend the time sifting, you can curate a great holiday look for your home at a super price. Among the finds we unearthed was this $16 owl doorstop that's so great for keeping the house open and connected when it's filled with tons of guests. It's the details, right?
If you're into personalizing decor with family names or monograms, Mark and Graham is where you should start. We love the understated, natural look of these quilted stockings, which cost $34 and can be customized with a name for no additional cost.
JCPenney’s designer collaborations continue to hit it out of the park and holiday is no exception. Exhibit A: this adorable $14 monogram ornament from the Happy Chic by Jonathan Adler collection. We also spotted this festive felt giraffe ornament for $12. If classic is more your style, check out Martha Stewart’s holiday collection. We love this Arctic glass ball with trees ornament for $8.
For affordable Christmas trees online, look to Home Depot. This artificial Aster pine pre-lit with clear lights goes for under $90, and gets a ton of great customer reviews. The retailer has a big selection of other budget-friendly holiday décor as well, like this bold red satin pin tuck tree skirt under $25.
If your taste tends toward the traditional, Improvements has a selection of indoor and outdoor holiday home décor at a variety of price points. This set of two pre-lit trees starts at $49.99 and would be a dramatic way to welcome guests to your front door this season.
