The Very Best in Holiday Decor

Nothing makes me feel holly-jollier than decking the halls with great holiday decor (and, ok, thick pours of eggnog and a bountiful cookie tray and/or cheese plate to indulge in). Since most of us are hunkering down at home this season, isn’t it time we upped the decorating ante? We rounded up some of our sugar-dusted favorites to trim every inch of the tree—and then some.

Calling all DIYers—this craft kit makes for an ideal evening in (just add a Hallmark movie and beverage of your choice). “These paper snowflakes have made such a lovely addition to my holiday decor this year!” says Madeleine Letellier. “They look beautiful hanging above my Christmas tree (I swear it makes that corner of my apartment magical—like it’s snowing just in that corner), and it made for a really great and meditative arts and crafts project. Especially with this year being so hard, I’ve found a lot of joy in decorating my living space with the season—and these are easily my favorite find this year.”  By the end of your night, you’ll have “made” 12 shimmery snowflakes of about 5” to 8” each. Jack Frost would be so proud.

Plus, it’s the perfect background for holiday Zoom calls.” Consider us charmed.

Home & Kitchen 24 Inch Real Cotton Wreath

Paging Joanna Gaines. This 24-inch wreath was made of real cotton, and adds a delightful burst of nature’s bounty wherever you like, from the front door to that bare spot over the mantle. Harrison White uses hers year-round and calls it a “must-have for any modern farmhouse.” We love it for its ethereal simplicity.
