I know it’s early to be chatting about Christmas decor, but as I mentioned in my post on Christmas tree collars, things are predicted to sell out earlier than ever before this year! So, for those that are starting to plan out their holiday season already, today I’m sharing some of my Christmas decor favorites from years past that are currently in stock, as well as some fun new finds!

In-Stock Christmas Decor Favorites From Years Past
First, I wanted to walk through some personal and reader favorites from my prior Christmas home tours. I’m always excited to see when retailers bring back some of these finds! I’ll link the relevant home tours along the way so you can dig deeper into some of the looks if you’re looking for more inspiration!
These warm white fairy lights were a major win last year’s home tour! I love that you can pick a variety of color tones as well as number of sets. They’re battery operated and have a number of light settings, as well as built-in timers! They’re also waterproof! They were perfect for our entryway/stairwell garland, where I don’t have easy access to a plug without stringing it across a floor. I didn’t tuck them in super well to my garland for fear I’d never get them out, but I was shocked at just how stunning they were at night! The lights are also fun to throw in a large glass jar with ornaments or throughout other decor in your home!

I ordered this set of bells to use on the garland this year and think I’m going to go with brown and gold tones for the ribbon. I also saw this set of bells shortly after I placed my order, and they look like a great option too! It was actually hard finding any that would ship prior to mid-November!
The infamous real-touch garland that usually sells out by the end of October is still available! Mine is the garland you can see in the front in the below image. Unfortunately so many bloggers now own this garland that it doesn’t last long! You can also purchase it here if you prefer to order direct, but sometimes the shipping costs make it a lot more expensive. It’s a good one and I highly recommend it! I have two on our mantel here for length (with a thin cedar one behind it to compensate for our depth). If you prefer the look of a cedar garland, this one looks promising and is a similar price point. And our Plaid & Sherpa Lumbar Pillows are also back, in more options than ever! I can’t even tell you how soft the sherpa is on the back. Love, love, love these!

Our Plaid Bedding sold out rather quickly last year so I was excited to see they brought it back this year – and now also offer it in a black colorway! And our Faux Natural Christmas Tree was hit or miss if you could find it in stock or not (and the price was all over the board when it was). But, at the time of publishing this, it’s in stock and for the lowest price I ever see! It’s a good one if you’re wanting that natural, slightly sparse look where you can see the “trunk”! If you look through the reviews, it can be helpful to see it decorated a number of ways! I can pretty much guarantee the price will go up on this one with demand over the coming weeks.

My other, and perhaps all-time favorite, faux natural Christmas tree is back in stock, but I do feel the price is currently inflated. It’s likely due to demand and the fact that most retails no longer have it available. But I love this one so much! It’s very similar to the one above but is slimmer and with more upright and petite branches. Here it is in our living room two years ago in my 2019 Christmas home tour.

And here is the same faux natural Christmas tree last year in our dining room. It’s the same number of lights and everything, just photographed at different times of day when the lights are more/less noticeable. Kurtis actually loved this tree so much prior to me decorating it the first year, that he thought I should leave it as is! And you all know my big love for Christmas tree collars!

If you’re more of a flocked fan, the 9′ flocked tree we use in our office (that faces that street) is also still available. This one typically sells out pretty early, as well, because it’s a pretty decent value for the size. I like that the lights connect via the pole rather than cords. It’s also quite a bit less messy than other flocked trees I’ve use (but still messy). For reference, we have 9′ ceilings in our office and I still went with a 9′ tree and then just bent the top down a few inches to accommodate a star.

My nativity set is another favorite, shown below in last year’s home tour. My mom has the full set and I’ve loved it for ages. So, several years back, I decided to gift myself a piece or two each year. Unfortunately, they rarely go on sale so I just gradually add to it over time. I always enjoy the process of setting it up each year! I think this year’s addition will likely be the Three Wisemen.

In my 2018 Christmas home tour, I used plaid in every room and that kind of became my “theme” for the year. The indoor/outdoor plaid rugs I used in our kitchen were one of my favorites ever! I love that they come in a variety of shapes and sizes (as well as three color options) so you can use them in multiple rooms if you choose. You can also get them here.

If you love Christmas themed bedding as much as I do, this buffalo check bedding is back this year in more color options than ever!

And remember these fun outdoor faux birch trees? I found some over a decade ago at RH like these, and really wanted to buy them. But sometimes it’s hard to justify the cost for a seasonal item. I really love these ones that come in multiple heights. Up close and face-to-face, they aren’t anything special (it looks like white tape painted with birch marks). But, if you’re more than a foot or two away, they look great, especially at night! I love how pliable the branches are, and they fold up super flat for storage! I loved the ones in my courtyard so much after a few years that I bought another one for our front porch planter! This was perhaps the item I received the most messages about last year. It was so fun to see how everyone decorated them and to hear how much you loved them too! But they’re another item that tends to sell out quickly and doesn’t typically get restocked until the season is over. I actually leave mine up all winter!
We have the 4′ tree in our front porch since the ceiling limits it a bit (but I probably could have gone with the 6′).
And, we have the 6′ versions in our courtyard. I love walking by them each night down the hallway in the winter months!
New Christmas Decor Finds
Each year when I consider what colors I’ll use for my holiday decor, I usually try and find one or two items that inspire me and set my overall plans in motion. With that, I thought I’d share some additional Christmas decor finds that could help inspire your rooms as well!
I’m loving every single one of these Italian plaid pillow options! They’re all so good and these classic plaids will be relevant for years to come! I also appreciate that they sell them without or with an insert (only $10 more)!
As I mentioned above, I’m leaning towards the idea of using browns and golds in my decor with possible accents of navy and chartreuse. Since I really haven’t started sourcing many products yet, I’m not sure how feasible that will be, but that’s the tentative plan! These brown bottle brush trees are too cute and would work perfectly for what I have in mind!

I was able to score this pinecone wreath on major clearance last year after Christmas so I’m excited to find a place in our home for it this year. I love the bleached out effect of the pinecones!
I also really love these real-touch wreaths if you’re looking for something a bit more classic. They’re the same material as our real-touch garland I shared above!
And if you love the look of dried orange slices strung as garland but don’t love the idea of making your own. Check out this pack of 20.
How great are these lit evergreen spheres?! They’d be a possible DIY too, if you can think of a creative way to hide the battery pack or cord. But I love those in a tablescape as shown, but I think they’d be equally as cute in planters, on a mantel or in a large dough bowl!
These plaid stockings, available in three perfect colors, are basically exactly what I’ve been searching for the past half decade. Of course they offer them in the year I’m contemplating veering from traditional colors 😉
