We recommend planning your display around one large centerpiece item. It allows you to have a focal point that draws attention and can be complemented with simple strings of lights and outdoor tree ornaments. Here are some suggestions that are sure to make your house is the holiday focal point of the neighborhood.
This 15-ft. tall inflatable gingerbread house suggests medieval lebkuckler bakers helped build the display in your yard. A Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive, this giant gingerbread house is decorated with an assortment of sweets, all illuminated by 83 LEDs. An integrated air pump keeps it all inflated.
The Illuminated Candy Cane Archway transforms your front entrance into a holiday spectacle. Only from Hammacher Schlemmer, the sparkling tinsel-covered metal frame stands seven feet high to flank a walkway for your guests. The striped red and white pattern reflects light from 350 built-in bulbs. This larger-than-life decoration also makes a unique gift idea for the person on your holiday list who really does have everything.
Standing nearly two stories tall, this inflatable Rudolph will welcome holiday revelers. His underbelly is more than nine feet above the ground at its highest point, inviting carolers and visitors to walk beneath. Another Hammacher Schlemmer exclusive, his sweet and eager expression is sure to delight all who come to call.
Rudolph’s buddy, Bumble the Abominable Snow Monster, is also ready to grace your lawn. His enormous 15 foot stature and five internal lights draw both attention and astonished stares from passersby.
In cold-weather climates, it’s best to set up your display while weekends still offer mild weather and before any snow coats the ground. Having your yard decorated early gets you in the holiday spirit and frees up time for shopping for all those unique gifts for family and friends.
