All of the photos here are from Target.
This time of year is when some of my most favorite things convene into a perfect storm of bliss: Christmas, decorating and Target.
Last year (also known as ‘The Year with No Rules’), I decorated for Christmas before Thanksgiving because it makes me happy and last year sucked big time. Plus, I was spending so much extra time in my house, I wanted pretty things to look at 24/7.
This year, Mr. KK (sort of) put his foot down that I was to not decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. Which I heard as, “You have extra time before you have to decorate, so you should buy more stuff!”
Personally, I can’t wait to start decorating because I am running out of
hiding spots places to put my new decor purchases.
If you haven’t been to Target yet this season, prepare yourself. Their holiday offerings are on point.
The minute you walk in you will be greeted by Bullseye’s Playground (formerly known as the Dollar Spot). During the holidays, they have great items like gift bags, gift tags, little houses, greenery…all for $1, $3 and $5. I have a love/hate relationship with Bullseye’s Playground; I love how cheap and cute everything is, and I hate how fickle the inventory is. I stalk Instagram accounts that showcase holiday finds, and I am SO JEALOUS of how awesome Targets are in other areas of the country.
And now, for the good stuff. No matter what your holiday decor theme is (or even if you don’t have one!) there is something for your home at Target. I’m obsessed with little houses, red trucks and bottle brush trees. And Target does NOT disappoint.
My Favorite Target Holiday Decor Finds
Light Up Trees, $10+
These trees come in 2 sizes, and are a perfect way to light up your decor. I have a similar version of these trees that I put in a bookcase where I don’t have any lighting and it lights them up so nicely! (NOTE: I will also be purchasing these this year!)
You can never have too many bottle brush trees, that’s my motto! And I love that there are a few different styles of trees! I can’t wait to add these to my collection.
Metal Truck with Tree, $10 (medium size)
I love, love, love the truck trend. In fact, I have an entire side table dedicated to red holiday trucks in our living room. And only $10 for the medium is a great price!
Metal Bus with Tree, $20 (large size)
If you get the metal truck, you have to get the metal bus to keep it company. How cute is this??
If you have a more modern decor or a darker color palette, this little ceramic tree is perfectly understated! I would mix this with cream and gold decor items of different textures.
Pom Pom Wreath, $20
If you’re looking for an alternative to a traditional wreath, this is it! It’s so colorful it can go in almost any room, and would be especially amazing in a kid’s room or playroom!
If you get the colorful wreath, you need the colorful tree shirt! If you’re like me and you have more than one Christmas tree, this is a great skirt for the secondary tree, wherever it may be!
Oh my goodness, I need these funky trees! They also come in red, purple and light blue. Going for glamorous, these are your trees!
Modern Wood Tree, $15 (small size)
These sleek, neutral trees will blend into any decor. They would be great on a mantel, mixed with other tree types in a cream and gold color palette.
Antique Table Top Tree in Gold, $20 (large size)
These three dimensional trees are the perfect accent, and would go beautifully with the modern wood tree above.
Ceramic Houses, Assorted prices and sizes
I mentioned my affinity for little houses – wood, metal, ceramic – and this little collection makes a cute little village. The glitter roofs add a special sparkle.
I can’t wait to add this sweet house to my paper house collection for the top of our living room built ins. Best part is they light up!
I have a few of these birds (the Fall version is out in my bookcase right now!) for Christmas but I love the red and pink outfits on these three. I’m sure I could fit a few more birdies into the decor…
Faux Fur Wreath, $15
Glam, glam, glam! Who doesn’t need a feather wreath in their lives??? Honestly, this could stay up year round!
Metal House Stocking Holders, $30 (4 pack)
How cute are these?? If you have a little house theme, these are the perfect addition to your mantel.
There you have it, all of my Target Christmas favorites. Stores have had limited stock, but everything is online! For your late night/early morning shopping!
