Anthropologie may be best known for its boho-chic clothing and statement-making furniture and decor, but it’s also a great place to shop for unique Christmas ornaments. Every year, the distinctive retailer releases a special collection of monogrammed ornaments, each emblazoned with the year somewhere on the ornament. This year, it’s all about this whimsical snow globe ornament (which is sold in letters A to Z). Of course, that’s not the only ornament the retailer sells. They have a variety of chic ornaments that are bound to stand out on your tree, ranging from felted characters, like this Pampered Poodle ornament, to miniature takes on cult-favorite holiday village houses and much more.
Always Fits
Don’t let this cheeky gift site fly under your radar this holiday season. It’s a one-stop-shop for inside joke-worthy finds, retro relics and pop culture-inspired goodies—including ornaments. After the year that Britney Spears has had, everyone is celebrating the pop icon. If you want to take your adoration of her to a new level, this “Baby One More Time”-era ornament is a no brainer. Others pop culture icons who can make their way to your tree courtesy of Always Fits include Dr. Anthony Fauci, Post Malone and Yayoi Kusama.
West Elm
West Elm is nothing short of an ornament-filled wonderland. While much of the brand’s furniture takes on a more mid-century modern appeal, many of the ornaments it sells offer a more retro allure: namely, its notable selection of Shiny-Brite ornaments. If you’re unfamiliar, Shiny-Brite ornaments first came out in Germany back in the 1930s and grew to be very popular in the ’50s and ’60s. While they had a bit of a hiatus, 2020 saw a resurgence of Shiny-Brite-inspired bulbs and baubles. And now if you’re lucky, you can snag the real thing. But don’t wait—these sell out fast. West Elm sells more than just Shiny-Brite ornaments, though. They also have a handful of felted monogrammed ornaments, geography inspired ornaments and bottlebrush ornaments.
World Market
World Market knows a thing or two about head-turning trinkets, and there’s no exception when it comes to Christmas. The international-inspired retailer sells a wide variety of ornaments, ranging from trendy blown glass food items and travel-inspired baubles to glittery showstoppers and vintage-inspired characters. Some of our favorites include the Silver Mirrored Disco Ball Ornaments, Glass New York And London Ornaments and Pier Place Mini Glittered Nutcrackers.
If you’re looking to create your very own food-themed Christmas tree, you can’t go wrong with Food52. The brand brings its joy of food beyond the plate with ornaments like the Cody Foster Breakfast Sandwich ornament, above. Other standouts include the Fruit and Vegetable Ornaments, Christmas in New York-themed felt ornaments (that includes a slice of pizza), and Handmade Felt Food Ornaments (FYI, there’s a rainbow bagel in the mix).
Target is a great place to shop for just about everything—clothes, shoes, groceries, toiletries—you name it. And, come Christmas (and actually months in advance of it), the bullseye retailer is a fantastic place to scout out unique ornaments. Take one look at the adorable Glass Oven Ornament above and you’ll see what we mean. The affordable one-stop-shop lives up to its reputation with a bounty of beautiful ornaments, all at jaw-dropping low prices. A few of our other favorites include the glass dog bowl-themed option, a lit ceramic retro Christmas tree and a tequila bottle.

Free People
Free People is known for its gorgeous bohemian-inspired clothing, but did you know that it offers an assortment of ornaments, too? The selection may seem limited, but it’s worth pointing out that of the 16 ornaments, most are sold in multiple colors and shapes, so there are really quite a few to choose from. Take the Home State Ornament above, for example: It’s sold in 50 silhouettes to represent all the states.

While his ornaments are sold across the web, it can be difficult to find an abundance of them in one place. Luckily, Nordstrom has us covered.
