There’s still plenty of time to deck the halls! Holiday decorations can get pricey real fast, and it can be tough to fill your space with holiday cheer without making your wallet very sad in the process. Folks, never fear. Holiday decorations can come from any place you spy a little inspo. We’ve gone and rounded up holiday decor from places that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to have awesome decorations. These aren’t the obvious go-to superstores (everybody knows Target has tinsel and lights), but rather, lesser-known gems that are actually holiday goldmines.

1Christmas Central

Christmas Central

Ok, duh, it’s not unexpected that a place called Christmas Central is an amazing site with all things Christmas and holiday…shocker! But what makes this site extra special is the sheer range of styles and massive offerings. The only caveat? You can spend hours perusing this place. Consider yourself warned. But our favorite part of Christmas Central is their impressive collection of colored Christmas trees. We’ll take pink, please!

2Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters

UO has a whole holiday section brimming with fun and slightly subversive decorations, like this gingerbread man “bite me” ornament. Also noteworthy: their printed, non-traditional stockings.

3Zara Home

Zara Home

Who knew one of our favorite clothing brands has a to-die-for holiday home division?! Ok, maybe you knew, but a reminder is always nice! Zara Home has super chic and affordable items that will add sparkle to your table, tree, and more!

4MoMA Store

MoMA Store

The Museum of Modern Art has a stunning store and holiday section that will add some modern design to your seasonal celebrations. Some of their items are a tad pricier, but they are truly unique — like this glass menorah. And who doesn’t want to support an iconic museum?

5Everything But the House


Everything But the House is a collection of online estate sales filled to the brim with holiday treasures. You’ll find wreaths and lights, holiday china and ornaments, and all kinds of vintage and antiques delights. You can get great finds at great prices…plus you’re bound to find something with a cool backstory.

6Bass Pro Shop

Bass Pro Shop

We’ve haven’t gone crazy, promise! Bass Pro Shop isn’t just for finding a fishing rod; it’s also a great place to round out your holiday best. With enviable collections of artificial trees, Elf on the Shelf accessories, and all things camo-Christmas, this is the spot to go decoration hunting if you like that rustic vibe.


Yay for decorating with a good cause in mind! Check out the “Holiday Home” section at GreaterGood to find ornaments, candles, and other fun holiday décor items with profits that support the fights against hunger, breast cancer, Autism, and more. You’ll be supporting a good cause and making the space around you beautiful.

Now, you have a list of places to scout for holiday magic, so there’s no excuse for a less-than-stellar affair. Go forth and decorate, friends!
