The simple act of lighting a fragrant candle can change a home’s ambiance. Yankee Candles are beloved for their quality and value — this large 22-ounce size burns for over 75 hours.

Santa stands alongside a friendly snowman inside this charming globe lantern. You’ll want to gaze at the glitter “snow” falling over this festive scene forever.

If you just can’t pass up an animatronic Santa, this is your guy. “Mr. Christmas” climbs up and down a 17-inch ladder with his little string of LED lights. Other plush characters are also available: an elf, a reindeer and a snowman. You can also size up to the 40-inch ladder. The whole thing is battery-operated and plays songs to boot.
Who wouldn’t want to be greeted by a tiny gingerbread man and little reindeer? This natural mat is made from coconut husk fibers and features a non-slip vinyl backing. There are other holiday-themed designs too.
Light the candles on this charming wooden piece and watch their heat turn the windmill, which turns the carousel. Charming wooden figures rotate around as it spins.

This 24-inch pre-lit wreath is a classic piece of holiday decor with a modern lighting element. Pine cones, berry clusters and frosted branches wind among the white lights. The wreath features battery operation (three AA batteries), so no need to fuss with cords and a timer button keeps the wreath on for 6 hours and off for 18.
Thirty mini bottle brush trees in five sizes make adorable additions to mantels and more. Also perfect for crafting, ornaments and table decor, they come in an assortment of light green, dark green and silver. Each tree sits on a wood base so it can stand alone.
