They offer a great way to share in the festivity of the season without spending a ton of money on a reindeer-emblazoned sweater set you’ll only haul out once a year. To build a fun wardrobe of holiday-themed pins, the FERVENT LOVE Wreath Brooch, Candy Cane Brooch and Bells Brooch are a great place to start.
Holiday Scarves, Hats and Face Masks That Jazz Up Any Look
Who says accessories can't be both festive and functional? There are plenty of great holiday-themed items out there that can easily help you spread good cheer during FaceTime calls to friends or essential excursions outdoors. Given that face masks will probably be necessities for some time to come, you might as well rock them in holiday style. Check out options like this cool rhinestone-studded Christmas Snowflake Face Mask, which is designed with high-quality material that's both breathable and soft, and this reusable Plaid Face Mask, which is a great choice for sprucing up an outfit even after the holidays pass.
Earrings and Necklaces That Are Sure to Be “Sparkling and Bright”
If you’re ready to go all-out with the sparkle, it’s time to dive into the deep end of holiday bling. Christmas jewelry offers a great way to add extra pops of sparkly fun to your holiday season. Fortunately, there are plenty of great choices out there, ranging from surprisingly elegant to shamelessly over the top. Take a note from Santa's sleigh and deck yourself out with the Your Little Lovely Jingle Bells Necklace, Bracelet & Earring Set. The bells actually work, creating a satisfying jingle-jangle as you move, which makes the set a great gift to give to small children — you'll never have to worry about being able to discover their hiding places around the house again.
Ugly Christmas Sweaters That Will Make You the Star of the Party
No self-respecting Christmas accessory list could ever be quite complete without including a selection of deliciously hideous Christmas sweaters. Over the years, the ugly Christmas sweater has clawed its way into the pantheon of Christmas tradition to sit proudly among greats like eggnog and mistletoe — and we can't get enough of the ridiculousness.
