Christmas And Gifts

Animated Christmas Decorations

These can help to bring your seasonal displays to life. Whilst it's not something which should be massively overdone, animated decorations add an extra dimension and can look very tasteful either in your home or outside in your yard.

Animated ornaments can look stunning when used as a centrepiece for the table. If they have lights and music too then the effect will be even better, especially when you are gathering around the table for meals in the evening.

There are some truly beautiful animated Christmas decorations available. Some have an incredible amount of detail to them and are works of art. Whether you want snowy villages full of people, trains winding their way up a mountain or skaters on pond there is so much to choose from.

Many people collect items such as this over the years and they become treasured family possessions which are brought out and lovingly unwrapped every year. It really feels like Christmas when the old collections come out of the cupboard or attic.

The variety is huge and it's just a matter of what your personal preferences are. Here are some of the animated Christmas decorations which I personally find appealing.

One of the nicest types of decoration is the animated Christmas Scenes. Mostly these are made in the form of houses, churches or whole villages. There are also the frozen pond with skaters type which a lot of people find particularly appealing.

These Christmas scenes have a very nostalgic feel to them, which fits is well with the general atmosphere of Christmas. I particularly
love the one in the center of the top row below. This is a beautiful piece with so much detail in it including a train and a crystal glass church. The small picture here doesn't do it enough justice; you would need to click on it to get the larger picture to get the full effect.

Animated Christmas figures can be elegant, comical or pretty much anything in between, depending on your personal tastes. I think these are definately in the love 'em or hate 'em category!

Naturally there are lots of Santa Claus figures to choose from ranging from desktop size to, well, huge! There are lots of characters to please both kids and grown ups ranging from cute and cuddly to some which are more than a little bizarre!

There has to be a place for the animated Christmas snowman in the collection. We all love snowmen and remember the magic of building them as kids. Nowadays I tend to remember the backache from helping the kids build giant ones!

Year on year the number of people who include outdoor animated Christmas decorations in their yard displays seems to increase. Some people go for one animated centrepiece amongst the static lights and figures. Others create scenes which include a range of animations and which draw a steady stream of viewers over the Christmas season.

As with everything Christmas you can go for elegantly understated right up to completely over the top garishness. Most of us fall somewhere in between!

Inflatable Outdoor animated Christmas decorations grow in popularity year on year. These inflatables are big and colourful and create an impact with relatively little effort. They can be used over and over again and so do work out to be quite good value for money.

You can get Santa, snowmen, reindeer, snow globes and all manner of traditional Christmas characters. Also you can get Snoopy inflatables, Disney and so on.

Most self inflate in a matter of a few minutes and when the holidays are over you simply deflate them and pack them away ready for next time.

 have included a couple of Thomas Kinkade animated Christmas decorations already but his collection is so extensive that I thought a few more examples should be included.

Thomas Kinkade has a huge following and has created a collection of paintings, figurines, globes and music boxes over many years. His Christmas range is probably amongst his most loved work.

Here are some examples.

Thomas Kinkade Wonderland Express Animated Tabletop Christmas Tree With Train Thomas Kinkade Wonderland Express Animated Tabletop Christmas Tree With Train

This is the Thomas Kinkade Wonderland Express Animated Tabletop Christmas Tree With Train and must be one of the most popular of his whole Christmas collection.

Standing about 16 inches tall the piece has four levels of rotating movement. There is an incredible amount of detail with illuminated buildings and numerous people. Three trains travel around the levels and Santa in is sleigh, pulled by reindeer, fly around the top.

Plays a medley of Christmas carols and can be run on either mains electricity or battery, so you can use it as a table centrepiece.
