We scoured Amazon and found tons of Christmas decorations, many of them on sale. If you're looking to brighten up your home or office this season, all it takes is a few clicks and some thumbtacks to hang a string of twinkling lights or a few stockings by the chimney with care.

Scrolling the pages of products on Amazon to find items worthy of adorning your home can be a job unto itself. That's where we come in. Our top picks for decorations include unexpected decor such as a vintage Christmas banner to a miniature lighted Christmas tree. 

Best Christmas decorations for 2023

Candy cane lights are an easy way to turn a standard walkway into a magical winter wonderland. This set of 10 is easy to set up -- just stake them into the ground and plug them in. The final result is a showstopper. Bonus: They add the perfect amount of extra outdoor lighting for nighttime gatherings.

Party Joy

If you're craving a traditional atmosphere this season (without the dropped needles), decorate with these artificial cedar garlands. You can drape this 5.9-foot garland over doorways, wrap it around mirrors or use it as a table runner accent on the dining table. It comes with a set of LED lights, which you can choose to wrap among the pine needles or use separately.

Whether you're famous for your homemade holiday cookies or just want a festive place to store Santa's chocolate chips, this ceramic jar is a must. Standing nearly a foot tall, it's hand-painted and made from sturdy earthenware, ensuring it'll last decades. Plus, at $45, it's currently nearly half off the list price of $78.

christmas tree
Amazon

If you don't have room for a full-size Christmas tree, or you want to add a smaller tree to your home for extra ambiance, this 2-foot mini tree is perfect. It has some underdog Charlie Brown energy and requires exactly no watering or pine needle cleanup in January.

Oriental Cherry Store

Add a festive touch to your mantle or doorway with this Merry Christmas banner. We love the vintage vibe and the size of the rustic-looking 5.8-inch cards. They have pre-punched holes and a ribbon, so you'll have to string it together yourself, but it's pretty easy to assemble. And the best part is the price.

Amazon

These simple, cozy knit stockings make any fireplace (or stairway or anywhere else) more festive. The set of four breaks down to just $5.50 per stocking, and they come in ivory, burgundy, green and khaki. Choose your color combo and your quantity, and place a custom order for your family.

gingerbread house
Raz

If you're not in the mood to build a gingerbread house this year, this resin version is the next best thing. You can get one as a centerpiece, or collect more houses in the same style to create a village.

yankee candles
Amazon

The simple act of lighting a fragrant candle can change a home's ambiance. Yankee Candles are beloved for their quality and value, and this 22-ounce size burns for over 110 hours. The scent's festive blend of balsam, cedar and juniper berry will put a smile on your face. 

lighted-gift-boxes
Amazon

Choose a trio of gold, silver or white gifts to bring the festivities up a notch. These sparkly boxes (the tallest one is 10 inches) provide eye-catching decor inside or out. String lights inside the boxes create a cheery glow -- just plug them in and prepare to be dazzled.

plaid pillows
Amazon

Pillow covers are an easy way to update your couch for the season. A traditional Buffalo Tartan plaid dons this set of holiday pillow cases, available in sizes from 12x20 inches to 22x22 inches. The durable cotton linen covers have side zippers for easy transitions and cleaning.

ladder santa
Amazon

If you just can't pass up an animatronic Santa, this is your guy. "Mr. Christmas" climbs up and down a 17-inch ladder with his little string of LED lights. Other plush characters are also available: an elf, a reindeer and a gnome. You can also size up to the 42-inch ladder. The whole thing is battery-operated and plays songs to boot.

Who wouldn't want to be greeted by a tiny gingerbread man and little reindeer? This natural mat is made from coconut husk fibers and features a non-slip vinyl backing. There are other holiday-themed designs, too.

kurt adler alpine house
Amazon

Light the candles on this charming wooden piece and watch their heat turn the windmill, which turns the carousel. Charming wooden figures rotate around as it spins. Originally a German tradition, carousel pyramids have been a delightful Christmas presence since the 1700s. Four red candles are included in this delicate set.

Amazon

If you're in the market for a unique, affordable tree skirt, look no further. Woodland animals populate this folksy polyester piece, finished off with tassel and ties. The wintery theme is pretty and the skirt comes in multiple sizes.

Amazon

This 24-inch pre-lit wreath is a classic piece of holiday decor with a modern lighting element. Pine cones, berry clusters and frosted branches wind among the white lights. The wreath features battery operation (three AA batteries), so no need to fuss with cords, and a timer button keeps the wreath on for 6 hours and off for 18.

Kurt S. Adler

Make your home look like a gingerbread house with this faux candy garland from Kurt Adler. The 6-foot glittery strand is lightweight so you can drape it on almost anything. Create an impressive peppermint Christmas tree with multiple strands of garland.

christmas-laser-light.png
Amazon

Create a mesmerizing light show without the hassle of stringing up lights. These laser lights look amazing on bushes, trees or the side of a house. I pointed ours on a giant maple tree in our yard, and the effect was surprisingly realistic. 

bottle brush trees
Amazon

Thirty mini bottle brush trees in five sizes make adorable additions to mantels and more. Also perfect for crafting, ornaments and table decor, they come in an assortment of light green, dark green and silver. Each tree sits on a wood base so it can stand alone.
