Every 26th of December I wake up ready to add some new holiday decor to my collection. (And shop spend my new gift cards on some major sales!) After all, it’s the best day of the year to shop Christmas Clearance for the home! If you’re looking for Christmas mantel ideas, I chose to go with a cozy neutral theme this year.

Christmas Mantel Ideas
It has been so much fun decorating our home now that it is starting to look cohesive! This was our first Christmas with a mantel to decorate. (And a kitchen!) I’m not quite ready to take it all down! I will soon be reminded of all of the empty spaces that I need to fill in our home. These flameless candles are a favorite of mine. I picked up another medium size, along with 2 of the champagne style linked below. This is the best time to buy these candles. They can add up quickly, so I add a couple to my collection each year.
I am a big fan of Joanna Gaine’s Hearth & Hand line at target. She has a ton of neutral and cozy pieces with touches of green. Browsing through her collection will give you tons of Christmas Mantel ideas and inspiration!
Christmas home sales that I shop:
Here’s what I bought from the Crate & Barrel Sale:
I’ve done the glitter, the bright red, and all of the snowmen and reindeer figures. It feels messy to me. (Love it in other homes, but not mine.) I prefer to use black, white, wood, and forest green. If you’re interested in our fireplace, brick, or mantel details I wrote all about this project here! Picked up more of this prelit garland for next year. It is $12 off right now. I love that it is battery operated so we don’t have cords everywhere.
You can’t go wrong with pretty Anthropologie candles. Just don’t buy them full price! You can find them on sale every once in a while throughout the year. I love this sugarcoated jar for the holidays.
Decorating tip: Looking at stockings online will provide you with tons of styled Christmas mantel ideas!
