    2. A bag of instant snow that'll look and feel just like real fluffy snow. Just add water and it'll expand 100 times its original size, so you can bring the snowstorm inside and enjoy it without, y'know, getting frostbite.

    3. A pre-lit garland with pine cones and red berries that'll add charming vibes to your decor. It's bendable, too, so you can wrap it around anything you'd like.

    4. A snowman flannel sheet set because a boring ol' bedspread will simply not do during this time of year. It includes a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two pillowcases that are all made of 100% cotton.

    5. A retro holiday placemat with frayed edges that'll give your tablescape a homespun feel. The colourful mistletoe, stocking, and candy cane motifs will bring you back to your childhood.

    9. An adorable gingerbread silicone spatula with a solid wood handle that'll add some holiday cheer to your baking. It's soft and flexible, so it won't scratch your cookware as you scrape away your batter.

    11. A little sled garland that'll make you want to hit the slopes every time you see it perched upon your mantle. The little snowflakes aren't holiday-specific, which means you'll be able to keep them up all winter long.
