Below are 10 great outdoor decorations to get you — and, by extension, your neighborhood — into the holiday spirit:
1.Falling meteor shower or icicle lights
These falling waterproof lights have super bright LED chips and 360-degree shining angles so they appear brighter. Use them to decorate for weddings, parties, and the holidays.
2.Big outdoor LED snowflakes
These big hanging snowflakes have 105 cool white LED lights and durable polyproylene frames. They snap open for display and fold flat for easy storage.
3.A giant cheery Santa Claus holding a gift box
This 84-inch Santa Claus is illuminated by 400 clear LED lights and has a sturdy metal frame and weather-resistant fabric. You can also get it delivered for free.
4.Waterproof outdoor string lights
These 164-foot string lights have 2,000 LED lights to make the exterior of your home look brighter and warmer. They have eight different light patterns which can be controll by a button on the plug.
5.A small gift box covered in LED lights that automatically opens
This 12-inch gift box opens and closes to reveal a peeping Santa inside. The steel bar frames and stake help it remain sturdy even in the face of bold winds.
6.Pathway markers that look like candy canes
Nothing says Christmas like 10 glowing candy canes leading you to the front door. These come in sets of 10, are 22-inches tall, and have short stakes attached at the end for easy installation. Find a similar set from Wayfair here. If you’d rather walk home to candles, Wayfair has those too.

If your home doesn’t have a 5.6-foot long Santa riding a motorcycle out of your yard, don’t consider yourself finished decorating. This one has a metal stand to firmly sit on the ground and a controller that lets you set the animated light display — including chasing rope light wheels that “turn” while santa peels out of your driveway.
