If you have a friend or family member that enjoys decorating for the Christmas season – chances are they like to incorporate lights into their displays both inside and outside the home. Animated reindeer that appear to graze in snow-covered lawns and larger bucks with glowing antlers are popular choices for the holidays. However, you can surprise a loved one with an early present by choosing one of the following creative Christmas light gift ideas.
Creative Animal Lawn Decorations
When it comes to Christmas lawn decorations, animals are a favorite option. From panda bears to pigs, you never know what you will find when looking for a gift. Dressed in a Santa coat, the Trim a Home Holiday Pig (shown) offers a shade of pink to the front yard of Christmas light fanatics. The lighted crystal pig is illuminated with the help of 150 clear lights. The lighting effect is enhanced by crystalline spun material that covers the sturdy pre-wired metal frame. The pig is easy to set up and store, and comes with spare fuse and bulbs. You can find this holiday pig at Sears or online, which can be used both indoor and outdoor.
Cartoon Character Christmas Decorations
One of the most popular animated figures to decorate the lawns of holiday decorators comes from Disney, where Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto come to life in lights. Other characters for your lawn include Garfield’s Odie the dog, Snoopy from the Peanuts Gang, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Sports Related Christmas Lights
For the sports fanatic looking for unique ways to express their loyalty, Christmas yard decorations that feature their favorite team in lights would make an exciting gift. There are Christmas lawn decorations that depict sporting scenes, including hockey (like this Ottawa Senators player) and football (like this Georgia Tech player).
Victorian Christmas Light Scene
A lover of Victorian history and literature may enjoy a lighted scene or just one decoration that depicts the time period. Creative Decorating offers lighted Victorian skaters (man, woman, boy and girl), animated horse, and animated carriage. Other animated scenes offered by the website include a waving Santa, three-car train set, and set of Santa and his reindeer.
