With Halloween now well behind us, its time to go full-fledged on the holiday home trimmings. What better way to get in the mood than by perusing West Elm’s lovely new line of Christmas and Hannukkah décor for this year’s celebrations?
In particular, these nine items are guaranteed to bring in some winter cheer:
Ombre Felt Letter Ornaments
These individual letter ornaments can make for great personalized gifts or just spell out some season’s greetings around the home. Handmade by craftspeople in Nepal in a Fair Trade-certified facility, the felted wool letters are on sale right now for only $0.99 each.
Ceramic Tea Light Houses
This trio of tea light homes is a modern take on the classic miniature Christmas village. In simple white and terra cotta, the houses (starting at $20 for the smallest) make a sweet gingerbread-esque display on their own, but they can also be paired with West Elm’s Ceramic Christmas Trees to create an entire yuletide scene.
Light-Up Mercury Glass Globes
These eye-catching globes would look great on your tabletop or windowsill this holiday season. When illuminated by flameless candles or LED lights, these orbs transform from speckled silver to glowing amber. And at just $12 for a set of two, their cozy radiance is sure to set the right mood for any festivities you might have planned.
Shiny-Brite Tree Topper and Ornament Set
This collection-within-a-collection ($58) includes a set of 20 colorful glass bulbs with painted pastel stripes and a stacked-glass tree topper. Created exclusively for West Elm, these tree decorations are reminiscent of the signature Shiny-Brite originals dating back to World War II. The packaging is just as satisfying to look at, with each ball wrapped in printed tissue paper and nestled into its own chocolate box-like compartment.
Leaf Kraft and Glitter Garland
This 72-inch jute string of golden, shimmering leaves will up the holiday wow factor in any room you put it in. Mantels, doorways, and trees can all get an instant pick-me-up with this piece of sparkly foliage.
These stockings elevate traditional hanging socks into works of art, with embroidered gold rectangles inventively placed on their creamy cotton fronts. Measuring 20 inches long and fabricated in India, each stocking sells for $40.
This might be the most sophisticated way to light each night of Hanukkah. Constructed of crystal glass, the lines of this menorah ($60) are sleek and allow for light to pass through from every angle.
Luxe Lines Runner
This table runner, selling for $39, is an extremely versatile piece perfect for all every holiday from Thanksgiving to New Year’s. With its delicate slashes of gold on an ivory cotton base, this 90-inch runner helps dress up every meal.
Any door decked out with this wreath is destined to be a conversation piece. Made of quince slices, tallow berries, juniper, spruce cones, and other freshly cut plants and herbs, it measures 22 inches in diameter and sells for $120. Best of all, the ring’s eucalyptus leaves and cinnamon sticks provide a welcoming aroma to all who approach.
Even if the holidays look a little different this year due to COVID-19, dressing up your home in these festive accessories can help it feel a little more like a normal and cheery season.
