Snowmen, reindeer and Santa (pillows)..oh my

It is no secret that I am a lover of throw pillows.  I have closets and bins full of these colorful decorative accents and cannot stop myself from buying more…especially during the holidays.  You can pick up affordable versions at discount stores like Home Goods, Marshalls and Target or you can opt for something a bit more elegant and unique at stores like Pottery barn, Neiman Marcus and Restoration Hardware.  Not to mention the unlimited styles available on Etsy.

Regardless of your home’s decor or your favorite holiday motif, there is a holiday pillow with your name on it.  Check out these options:

Pier I is always a favorite holiday destination.  They have such a wide variety of sizes and designs and this happens to be one of my favorites.  I especially like the mini size that makes it just right for the back of a dining room chair or to add to a jumble of pillows on your couch.  And who doesn’t love a dog in a cap and scarf?


A long time favorite of mine has been this pillow featuring a car with a Christmas tree in the back.  It just seems to say it all.  This version is available at Pottery Barn but other similar looks are available at World Market and Etsy, just to name a few sources.


Every holiday home needs a reindeer or two or three.  And this pillow from Pottery Barn proves that you do not have to use red and green in your holiday decorating in order to set the mood.


The man of the hour, Santa Claus, is a necessity in every holiday home and this vintage looking Santa pillow from Target is perfect and oh so affordable!



Some pillows can even be educational.  An Advent pillow  like this one from Garnet Hill not only helps teach the kids about the real meaning of Christmas by counting down during Advent season but helps with counting and number recognition and adds to the excitement of the holiday.


A little fur goes a long way in setting a festive mood and the best part, these pillows can be used throughout the winter months, not just during the holidays.  Therefore, more bang for your pillow buck, so to speak.


Typography is popular year round but never more so than during the holidays.  There is no prettier way to express your holiday wishes than with a pillow, beautiful in it’s simple message.


Plaid, plaid and more plaid.  Enough said.

And, last but not least, the lovable snowmen that melt my heart and celebrate my love of all things snowy and bright.  And you can enjoy this cute guy from Target all winter long!

    Mine, too Lulu. Maybe we need to set up an online “pillows anonymous” group so we can all share our pillow loving stories! Merry Christmas!

    Like you, I am drawn to throw pillows. My hubby wishes that weren’t the case.


Would love to hear your thoughts
