It’s that time of year again — time to pull out the ornaments and lights from your garage, your basement, or your shed and decorate your home for the holidays! And even though some decorations may have special meaning or hold special memories, it’s always nice to add a few new pieces each year.
And no matter what your style is, there are thousands of decorations out there to choose from. Whether you want to keep it traditional or go for all-out winter glitz, it’s easy to find decorations to suit every taste and every budget.
Here are our top picks for the best Christmas and holiday decorations for 2019 (and a few of our favorite motifs and themes).
