I used to think decorating for Christmas in early November was a total no-go and always waited until at least Thanksgiving weekend to put up our tree. I love Thanksgiving and wanted that holiday to have its own moment before we moved fully into all-things holiday in my home. But, then, a global pandemic happened and all “rules” went out the window—and I couldn’t get my tree up fast enough to enjoy all the cozy and festive vibes.
Though we’re a few years past that time, I’ve noticed I’m still in the mood to embrace holiday decor in my home earlier and earlier each season. If it makes you as happy as it does me, why not go for it?! Plus, now that stores seem to be stocking their shelves with holiday items super early (was it always like this?), it’s actually helpful to buy any new decor you want to add to your collection sooner rather than later.
With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite holiday decor to shop now before it sells out. Shop our favorites for Christmas and Hanukkah, plus some cute items for kids spaces too!
