1. A very ~aesthetic~ Advent calendar to help you count down the days while also doubling as holiday decor — this pastel dream is so beautiful, you won't even be upset that it doesn't contain little gifts inside.

2. A Lego gingerbread house kit — it's way less messy, and you don't have to worry about it going bad before Christmas!

3. A wizard-themed wooden countdown board if you marathon the Harry Potter films every December because of the cozy Christmas vibes.

A wooden 8- by 10-inch board with the words "I solemnly swear that there are 39 days til Christmas" written on it with various Harry Potter imagery

4. An ultra-cozy turtleneck sweater dress with *pockets* because you don't need a reason to walk around wearing a reindeer with a Santa hat. Plus, you'll already have an outfit for all those super-early holiday parties.

5. Or a more low-key Christmas sweater if you're kind of over the "ugly sweater" trend but still want a festive, wintry top for everyday wear.

6. Movie-themed Advent calendar cards for Christmas movie buffs. Each card gives you a classic Christmas film to watch along with a bit of interesting trivia you might not have known, even if you've watched these films dozens of times.

7. And a 24 Days of Tea Advent calendar so you have a hot, delicious drink to go along with all those Hallmark movies you'll be watching this Christmas season. You'll probably get to discover some new flavors as well!

8. A ridiculously soft red plaid throw blanket you can curl up with all winter long — but the colors will make it look especially great next to all your Christmas decor.

9. A pair of snowflake throw pillow covers to update your couch or bed for the festive season. The nice thing about these covers is they're easy to store and break out again next year.

10. A pack of 300 (!) snowflake window cling stickers in case you don't want to count on the fickle weather for a "white Christmas."

11. A balsam and cedar candle to give your home that fresh Christmas tree smell before your tree is even set up.

12. A beautiful city-themed Christmas mug inspired by various locales, from Los Angeles and NYC to London and Paris. Whether you live there or dream of visiting, these magical mugs will make your morning cup of joe a little more festive.

13. A new pair of satin pajamas so you can wake up and pretend it's Christmas morning...before you have to roll out of bed and go to work because it's only December 1. Sigh.

14. A "Stitch a Day" embroidery Advent calendar for stitchers looking for a holiday project — the best part is that once it's completed, you'll have a lovely piece of decor for years to come.

15. A grow-your-own-Christmas-tree kit you can set up now and watch grow over the years. You can even plant it outside once your seedling is at least 3 inches tall! 🎄

16. A Home Alone–inspired door mat that's really evergreen decor but works especially well around Christmas.

17. A natural-looking pre-lit pine wreath adorned with red berries and pine cones. Even when the battery-powered lights are turned off, this beautiful Christmasy piece will seriously upgrade your door.

18. Pine cone pre-lit garland you can scatter across a table or place inside a mason jar for dreamy holiday vibes.

19. Snowflake string lights to bring a warm, cozy glow to any room — and you can leave them up all winter long. Hang them on a wall or drape them around other Christmas decor to light them up.

20. A snowy artificial tree for when you just can't wait until the day after Thanksgiving to set up a tree. This popular tree comes pre-lit with a gorgeous snowy effect on the branches.

21. Or a pre-lit tabletop tree that's great for smaller spaces and less of a task to set up compared to larger trees. Nothing spreads holiday cheer like twinkling lights on a Christmas tree, no matter the size!

22. A festive kitchen towel celebrating your beloved feline and all the mischief they're going to get into once you set up your Christmas tree (if they're anything like mine, they simply won't rest until they try to pull off all the lights).

23. A ceramic gnome cookie jar in anticipation of all the Christmas cookies you'll be baking — this little guy will keep them fresh for longer as well.

24. And Christmas Baking, a new cookbook to inspire you to try out some new recipes this year. Peanut butter caramel bars, cranberry pistachio scones, peppermint chocolate cheesecake...yep, I'm already drooling.

25. A wool garland so you can channel that Christmas cheer all season long. The white minimalistic design blends into most spaces and gives it a lovely understated look.

26. Light-up birch trees that are so beautiful and versatile, you might even want to leave them up all year. You can put these out now (inside or outside) and add other Christmas decor around them in December, if you like.

27. A classic sweater-shirt combo with embroidered string lights on the Peter Pan collar. The subtle festive detail on this otherwise plain (but lovely) sweater is simply *chef's kiss*.

28. A darling pair of Christmas tree earrings you can wear on your trip to the local tree farm (or while you buy a fake one on Amazon, no judgment).

29. A vintage-style laser-cut Christmas display to set out so everyone knows you're already counting down the days until Santa arrives. Set candles inside for a dreamy nighttime glow.

30. A set of six reindeer tea light holders you can honestly sneak into your home decor as soon as the weather gets chilly and leave up all winter long. Get them as an early Christmas gift to yourself, because they're absolutely adorable.

31. Artificial mini trees to bring more of that rustic Christmas charm to your space — they're quite small, so you can stick them pretty much anywhere to help elevate other decor.

32. Classic knit stockings to hang from the mantle with care, because Christmas will soon be here!

🎶 It's the most wonderful time of the yeeear 🎶
