So festive, yet so stylish
Target knows most of us are headed straight towards its bullseye to do our holiday shopping, so they’ve given us an early gift to kick off the season — Magnolia Holiday decor items from the Hearth & Hand line by everyone’s favorite HGTV couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines.
The entire line is rustic without being kitschy, and the closest we’ll probably ever get to having the Gaines give us home decorating tips. And it’s all at a Target price point, so you can deck the halls without blowing your budget.
We’ve pulled out a few of our favorites things so you can head to the store with a gameplan, because you know this stuff’s going to go fast.
How cute is this letters to Santa mailbox ($40)? No need to tip off the mailman or make a trek to the mall to make sure your kid’s letter gets to the North Pole, just have them put their requests for Fingerlings right in here. It looks sturdy too, which is a major plus.
This leaf and berry wreath ($35) is an easy way to make the neighbors think you’ve got your holiday shit together, even if the inside of the house is a wreck. Plus it’s made from artificial leaves, so you can use it year after year.
This photo frame ornament ($5) would make a great stocking stuffer for that friend who’s a Fixer Upper Superfan.
Glitter paint flaking off the kids’ old stockings? These plaid and pompom stockings ($13 each) say “Holidays” without screaming CHRISTMAS in your face.
So long cardboard advent calendars filled with cheap chocolate that tastes like sand. This Christmas countdown calendar ($30) has tiny, fillable metal envelopes that will hold up to years of your kids’ peeking and poking.
Let the kids go crazy covering the bottom with their glitter and foam snowflakes while you stare at this gorgeous star tree topper ($14) and day dream of that day that they’re old enough to handle glass ornaments.
Or if your kids can understand keeping their paws off the branches, how about a new style for this year? Red and green are classic colors for the season, but we’re loving the sophistication of these black patterned and galvanized tree ornaments ($13 per set).
It wouldn’t be a Chip and Joanna line without a birdhouse somewhere in the mix. This cute stocking holder ($10) is both functional and proof that your holiday style is totally on trend.
How the gifts look under the tree is aesthetic choice all on its own, and Chip and Joanna didn’t disappoint. The line includes chic tissue paper ($4) and gift tags ($5) so pretty you might be loathe to write on them.
This artificial wreath with bells ($20) looks totally rustic and charming, but won’t shed needles or invite tiny bugs into your home. Thanks Joanna!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some shopping to do. See you in the parking lot.
