Amazon Christmas Decor

Hi friends! Who else is already feeling the Christmas magic in the air?! I’ve already started decorating for Christmas, but I haven’t completely finished. I saved a little bit of decorating for after Thanksgiving so I’m not completely crazy, right?! I’m loving the natural & neutral this year & I’ve linked a bunch of decor items I found on Amazon!!

Fraiser Fir Candle 6.5 oz

7.5 ft Pre-Lit Fraiser Slim Tree

48 in Faux Fur Tree Skirt

Artificial Snow Spray

Battery Operated Wax Pillar Candle Set – remote controlled, set of 9 varying heights. Would look so beautiful on a mantle!

9 ft Pre-Lit Garland

Mercury Christmas Tree Set – comes in gold and silver & varying sizes.

Pine Picks Set – set of 6 of them! Use to hide the ends of your Garland, add more dimension to a tree, or even in a festive vase.

Boho Ruffled Pillow Color – set of 2 and comes in tons of colors as well a multiple size options!

Stocking Holder – set of 4. I love how simple these are. I think these are a great option if you’re wanting to decorate the top of your mantle with a garland or candles. Sometimes stocking holders have cheesy sayings or characters & this allows you to choose what you put on the mantle, but still be able to hang your stocking in a beautiful & secure way.

Cream Cable Knit Stocking Set – comes in a set of 4.

Mistletoe Dinner Plate Set

Gold Bells – I’ve seen these styled at the base of a staircase hanging from a garland, on the end of a mantle, & even displayed sitting on a tray. They’ve been selling out everywhere & I can see why the coloring is beautiful.

Velvet Green Pillow Covers – these come in a few color options as well as sizes. They’re so beautiful & elegant!

Mistletoe Serving Bowl – if you’re hosting this year this bowl & serving tray below will definitely help elevate & keep your event cohesive. These are gorgeous pieces to invest in that you’ll be able to pull out & use or display each year.

Mistletoe Serving Tray

Pre-Lit Birch Tree Set – 5 ft & 6 ft trees. These would look beautiful in an entry way or dinning room. I love finding pieces that are neutral & won’t clash with current decor.

12 pack of fairy lights – 7 ft each. I add these to EVERYTHING garlands, wreaths & trees. I got a tip from an interior designer to add multiple types & sizes of lights to your tree to make it look more ethereal.

Tabletop Christmas Tree Set – I love these bottle brushes! Would look beautiful styled on floating shelves, an entry or dining table.

Gold Candlestick Set – there’s something so beautiful about a simple tablescape with candlesticks at different heights.

Natural Wood Nutcrackers – these would be beautiful on their own & fit perfectly into the “natural” Christmas vibe, but you could also use them for a craft project. They would look beautiful sprayed white or black & I’ve seen both trending this year.

High Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans – on sale right now for only $39 & they’re normally $78! This is such a steal for the cutest black jeans ever. I love these because there distressing/fraying is only around the ankle so you don’t have to Rory about the holes in your knees getting bigger over time, my biggest pet peeve!

Ribbed Open Front Cardigan – 30% off right now! Cozy longline Cardigan, comes in 4 colors. This runs large order 1 size down.

Turtleneck Maxi Sweater Dress – such a flattering sweater-dress. 50% off right now!!

Moto Leather Jacket – a great leather jacket should be a staple piece in every closet. This is something you can wear over and over throughout the years.

Cheetah biker shorts – I absolutely love the biker short trend, it looks so adorable with a long band tee over the top.

Collarless Blazer Sweater – such a great laying piece that will keep you cozy & warm. Comes in 5 colors & is 46% off right now.

Over Sized T-Shirt Dress – I need this ASAP such a simple dress that looks so dang cute. It looks so cute paired with sneakers. If it’s a little colder where you are pair it with tights/leggings a pair of combat style boots a jacket or flannel.

Zella High Waisted Leggings – over 7,000 reviews with a 4.5/5! Great alternative to lulu leggings if you’re worried about price! Non slip waistband, wicking material, great for working out.

– Shoes –

Cheetah New Balance Shoes – just added these to my list this year. I’m OBSESSED! Such a good price point too.

Nike Renew Run Shoes I need these shoes in EVERY COLOR and they make a lot of them. Some of the colors are on sale right now too! Varying prices depending on the color combo.

Adidas Cloudfoam Sneakers – ON SALE. These sold out on Adidas but i found them at Nordstrom rack on sale. I actually have these on while writing this. They are by far the most comfy sneakers I own. Side note : would be awesome Disneyland shoes if it ever opens back up!

Gradina Block Heel Bootie – This print has been so popular this year, I love the slit detail it’s so cute + makes them easier to get on. 33% off right now!

Marc Fish Izzie Lugsole Boot – full disclosure these boots are a higher price point but they are also quite possibly the most perfect pair of boots I’ve seen.

Vans Asher Slip Ons – I’m pretty sure everyone under the sun owns these but they are easy,cute & comfy. What more could you ask for? If you haven’t grabbed a pair or if you new a fresh pair now is the time!

Steve Madden Studded Sandals – way too cold to wear these right now in Utah, but these would be perfect to have for next summer! They have a few different color options!

Tory Burch Sandals – these are a best seller every single year. They have so many colors too! Not quite as expensive as the Marc fisher boots but these are a higher price point.

– Accessories –

Joanna Straw Hat – super cute hat + protections from the UV rays? YES PLEASE. every poolside and beach day needs this hat.

Wireless Soma Bra – doesn’t this look like the comfiest bra to exist!? I have a similar one from VS but honestly this one looks way nicer.on my list this year!

Quay After Hours Sunnies – quay sunnies are such great quality & they always have the cutest styles. By far my favorite place to get sunglasses. BOGO 1/2 off right now.

Prism Hydroflask – my mom just ordered this & I’m not joking the pink is the cutest colored hydro flask I’ve ever seen.

– Beauty –

Shape Tape – #1 selling concealer, by far my favorite. On sale for only $19 right now.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo – I didn’t understand the hype about this until I tried it. I will NEVER use another dry shampoo. And I’ve tried a lot of them.

Supergoop Sunscreen – this product is amazing, no surprise it has a cult following. It’s a primer/sunscreen duo that grips your makeup and protects your skin. It’s also a clean product at Sephora! I love innovating products like this!

Olaplex No. 3 – hair treatment to strengthen and repair damaged hair!

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum – this serum has a higher price tag but for me it’s well warranted because this is professional grade skincare. They have higher levels of active ingredients which will actually help you achieve the skin results you’re looking for. Professional grade skincare also has to meet FDA guidelines.

Fenty Bronzer – smooth easy to blend bronzer, comes in 8 different colors! You have to respect the versatility here. Most brands have anywhere from 3-5 ish shades in their range. I.e. hoola has 4, too faced & Marc Jacobs both have 3.

– Home –

Modern & Contemporary Full Length Mirror – the minute I get a house I’m ordering this full length mirror. It is SO beautiful. Not a bad price either with it being on sale.

Barefoot Dreams Blanket – I have no words for how soft this blanket is. By far the best blanket. Not too hot but just the right amount of cozy.

Caraway Ceramic Non-stick Cookwear – I saw these the other day and wow they’re beautiful but also practical because they’re non-toxic! I didn’t even know my other non-stick pans were made with chemicals that come off onto your food over time.

Hyacinth Storage Bins – I’m not surprised these were a best seller this year after the internet breaking series The Home Edit on Netflix. Such an awesome thing to grab now to start 2021 right!

Dyson V11 – every house needs one or three! Hahah we have 3 in our home right now but we’ve had I think 5 at one point. Awesome because it’s cordless, lightweight & fits anywhere. Perfect to take out to your car, up and down the stairs and under basically any bed!

Tuft&Needle Mattress – on sale for 10% off right now but it’s already a great price especially for a mattress. The over 31k reviews 4.6/5 speaks for itself.

Studio McGee Spindle Chair – another Netflix series that was super popular this year! Comes in 2 colors!
