We know, we know: The holidays are still months away, and we've barely even started planning out this year's Thanksgiving dinner menu — let alone our Halloween costumes. So who's thinking about Christmas decorations right now?

*sheepishly raises hand*

Can you blame us? Home Depot's Christmas decorations are here, and we're in love with every single thing they're offering up this year. From ornaments to seasonal Christmas candles, their selection of indoor and outdoor Christmas decorations is the stuff of our gingerbread-scented dreams. There are larger-than-life inflatables to flip for, artificial trees to gawk at, and greenery that'll keep your front door and backyard looking as sprightly as your living room. If you can resist that, we envy your willpower.

Below, we're sharing Home Depot's best 2019 Christmas decorations in the hopes that it'll help make transforming your home into a winter wonderland a little less difficult. These are our personal favorites, but if your interest is piqued, you'll want to check out the full selection. There are so many more options online, in a variety of sizes, colors, and styles.

Here's hoping you find everything you want — and then some. Happy decorating, and happy (way, way, way early) holidays!


It's just not Christmas without a beautifully decorated mantel, stockings hung with care, and a few lovely figurines placed just so. With these fun new products intended for use inside our homes, we're even more excited to deck the halls and trim the tree.

Our top picks this year include a new-for-2019, vintage-inspired wreath and a stunning wooden Christmas tree collar that's full of country charm. Refined but rustic, it'd be a lovely addition to any home. We're also captivated by an enameled metal wall sign with gingham details that reads "BELIEVE" (perfect for your kitchen!), and an animated "Super Climbing Santa" that's as beautiful as it is whimsical—always a good combination when it comes to Christmas décor!

Admit it: You're falling for these sweet (and hilarious) creatures already! This year, show off your Christmas spirit to the neighbors with illuminated or animated outdoor displays, and select from a variety of new, wacky characters—including a six-foot-tall Ralphie inflatable from A Christmas Story and even a light-up cow. We're wild about inflatables all year long—whether they're acting as pool floats or outdoor décor—so it's no wonder we're even crazier about them at Christmastime.

Oh, and here's something your kids will love: Both the light-up Bernese Mountain Dog and the Ralphie inflatables are legitimately fuzzy!

Of course, Christmas just isn't Christmas without the classic decorations that remind us of childhoods spent by roaring fireplaces with plates of Christmas cookies by our sides and a few good Hallmark movies. Trees, garlands, and wreaths are barely optional on December 25, after all.

The good news: Home Depot has tons of new-and-improved Tannenbaums, wreaths, garlands, and more to keep this year's festivities feeling just like those of yesteryear...only upgraded. We were excited to see that nearly everything in their online catalogue is pre-lit and pre-strung, which means less tangled cords to deal with for us!

Among our favorite finds was a positively regal, classic standing yard deer as well as a pre-lit wreath and garland duo that are subtle enough to let the rest of your Christmas décor have its moment in the spotlight. A new artificial tree option, pre-decked to the nines in thousands of mini lights, also caught our eyes.

Here's to a season that's as colorful, fun, and beautiful as it is merry!
