Getting a Head Start on the Holidays: 5 Reasons to Start Shopping Now for Christmas Decorations

Sep 19th 2023

You may be sorry to say goodbye to summer or totally into the autumn vibe. Chances are, you’re probably not thinking about Christmas yet - but maybe you should be! The fact is, there are now fewer than 100 days to Christmas.

Did that thought just remind you that last year’s Christmas decor looked a bit tattered? Was the mantel a little bare? Did the cat wipe out your Christmas tree and half your ornaments?

Relax, there’s still plenty of time to plan! We’ve come up with five great reasons to start shopping now for your Christmas decorations.

1. Great Selection

While you were swimming, biking, learning to play pickleball, vacationing and enjoying the summer, Christmas Central was getting ready for Christmas. That means we’re fully stocked for Christmas, with more items added daily. We have a fantastic selection of artificial Christmas trees, wreaths and garland, ornaments, outdoor decorations and indoor decor ready right now! Find stylish neutral Christmas decor, merry magentas, classic silver and gold, and popular retro styles among our extensive Christmas collections.

2. Boost Your Mood

Face it, Christmas is fun! Whatever the season and whatever you’re going through, the lights, glitter and upbeat music can’t help but lift your mood. You may find yourself humming “We Need a Little Christmas,” or some other catchy holiday tune as you browse through beautiful Christmas ornaments, life-like Christmas trees, festive wreaths, cheery snow globes and fun Christmas inflatables. (We know we do!)

3. Budget Friendly

Christmas can be expensive. So many beautiful things - such limited funds! However, shopping early for your Christmas decorations makes great financial sense. Planning ahead means you can splurge a little now and have them paid off well before the holiday rolls around. Spreading the cost lets you update your Christmas look without breaking the bank come December.

4. Greater Self Control

We get it – all those bright, shiny Christmas decorations can be so tempting! The closer we get to Christmas, the stronger the siren call of glittering ornaments and glowing Christmas trees. However, shopping off-season might actually bolster your self-control. Browsing for Christmas decor when everyone else is focused on pumpkins and Halloween decorations could be the motivation you need to avoid budget-busting distractions.

5. Less Stress

Remember the stress of the holidays? Bustling here and there, squeezing in time for parties, family and shopping, trying to get everything done and still appreciate the joys of the season? Good news – shopping now lets you beat the rush. There’s no hurry as you search for just the right new decorations, no worry that your online orders won’t arrive in time. Plus, there’s much less chance of deliveries being delayed by bad weather!

Shopping early for Christmas isn’t for everyone. Some people thrive on the adrenaline boost they get from the mad rush of the season. But if you’re in the market for new Christmas decor, a little pre-season Christmas shopping may be just what Santa ordered!
