Get inspired by the best department stores’ windows, then head here to find the perfect trimmings for your tree. Everyone at your Christmas party will be super impressed.

The Christmas Cottage

Midtown West

For the past 30 years, this shop has provided New Yorkers with everything they could possibly want to deck their halls with jolly style. And while Christmas may come but once a year, this store is open year-round—just in case you get a hankering for a Fabergé Santa in July.

Chelsea

Since 1976, this store has peddled the best antiques and collectibles. If your personal style includes a vintage flair, check out this old-school outfitter for ornaments shaped like watermelons—in the 17th century, when Hans Grenier manufactured the first Christmas tree ornaments from blown glass and clay, the fruit-shaped ones were his favorite.

Christmas Village in New York City

Midtown West

In addition to the many city-centric offerings here (read: ornaments painted like taxi cabs), you can get yours personalized. So that NYPD badge you hang during yuletide can be embossed with your (or whoever’s) name.

Commune

Williamsburg

While this hair salon traffics mostly in fancy ’dos, it also offers an assortment of home goods—including ornaments. Get yourself a Christmastime coiffeur, then cop something pretty for your tree so that everyone and everything can look snazzy for the season.

Little Italy

If you’re starting from scratch with your ornament collection, head to this store for fully decorated Christmas trees. There’s also a Christmas museum on the lower level, if you want to find out where exactly decorated Christmas trees come from. (They date back to the 1500s, so yeah, there’s lots to cover.)

Dinosaur Designs

Nolita

Around the holidays, this store offers an elegant selection of ornaments with, yes, dino designs. There’s also handmade jewelry and home decor goods, if you really want to send your apartment back to the Jurassic Period this holiday season.
