It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas – five months ago.
While decorating your home in red and green before December 1 is a very controversial debate, Christmas in July is a reminder that it’s never too early to play with “All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey.
But Amazon is doing better with its Christmas sale in July with deep discounts on a wide range of essentials.
So grab a cup of hot chocolate, light a peppermint candle, and start your seasonal shopping in the online megastore. Maybe you need an artificial Christmas tree for your new apartment, or you just want to save on gift wrapping. Whatever your up-front buying mission, Amazon has you covered.
With our top picks, from decor to not-too-ugly sweaters, we’ve put everything together to keep an eye out for winter – in July.
First of all, you need a beautiful Christmas tree to decorate your hallways. The National Tree Company Home Centerpiece comes with 10 pre-wired lights and 6.5ft, 7.5ft, 9ft and 12ft options to fit your living space.
Ornaments can be expensive, so investing in quality items on sale, like these red and gold balls, is a good idea. Plus, you can offset them with these tiny gold adornments for just over $ 10 on Amazon.
Gift shopping can be stressful enough, but running out of wrapping paper is even more stressful. Buy this pack of four traditional models to always have a roll on hand.
Even if you hate sending greeting cards, it’s still nice to have them for last minute gifts. Enhance the traditional card and envelope with these 3D greeting cards, featuring Christmas trees and pop-up snowmen.
If you love white lights and neutral holiday decor, these cable knit Christmas stockings are the perfect aesthetic for your coat. Plus, they’re extra long to hold more treats (well, room for hairspray and body lotion).
These color changing LED Christmas lights are great for adding more style to your pre-lit tree, or if you want extra decor in your living room. You can even change the brightness level and turn the lights on and off with the included remote.
Do you dream of a red and green setting similar to Better Homes & Gardens? No problem, especially with these Spode Classic Christmas Tree Design dinner plates. As one of the best Christmas deals in July yet, you don’t want to miss out on this deluxe set of four for under $ 70.
Calling all Elf fans! There is actually a MONOPOLY version of Elf. Dressed in Buddy’s favorite maple syrup, as a play and Hobbs & Son Publishing as a location on the board, I’m about to play.

Candy Cane Lights are just too cute to leave out. Buy this 10-piece set for your front entrance or lawn that comes in a rainbow of fun colors (who needs a light show, after all)?
The garland is one of those timeless decorations that appear to have teleported from a Hallmark Christmas movie to your elegantly wrapped staircase. The National Tree Company garland is pre-lit and adds holly berries and pine cones for a classic must-have piece.
Looking to offer something more sentimental? This limited edition Swarovski ornament has the year engraved on the gold emblem above the crystal and will match anyone’s tree.
We are in 2021, of course the Christmas tree is Alexa compatible.
Buy the Mr. Christmas LED Christmas Tree for under $ 200 – more of a bargain than the real Amazon Echo Studio (which is still great).

How beautiful is this crown? Let’s start with that. National Tree Company doesn’t disappoint with its pre-lit wreath, adorned with holly berries, pine cones and silver accents.
The Elf on the shelf was meant for little kids… until the adults took over and started putting Mr. Elf cooking macaroni near a pot or catching goldfish in the sink. That said, buy this set – including the Elf Pets movie – for under $ 45 to pre-plan your Instagram posts.
The crowd favorite hot chocolate is the drink of choice for watching “The Polar Express” or “Elf”. This Land O Lakes 11-flavor strain pack will likely have you fully stocked until December. Plus, it’s a great way to experience the most delicious flavor of the bunch to redeem.

Ugly Christmas sweaters don’t have to be ugly per se, and this one from Blizzard Bay has a slim, flattering fit with a llama front and center. It’s a great winter accent to store in your wardrobe.
If you’re not a fan of all that ugly sweater thing, you don’t have to be. This Christmas sweater cardigan is a little more chic than the vibe of the itchy sweater anyway. Plus, you can wear it around the house with pajamas, and nothing beats that.
While not red and green or snowman speckled, this 40 pack of baked goods will come in handy once it’s time to bundle up some homemade Christmas cookies and other goodies in December. It even comes with string and thank you stickers.
