Holiday Shopping

The holiday season is a time for joy, celebration and gift-giving. Whether you’re gathering with friends and family for Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year's Eve or another holiday, the act of shopping for these annual festivities is a splendid, stress-free experience at World Market. With our assortment of unique presents and whimsical decor, you're sure to get in the spirit of the season.

Types of Holidays and Decor

When it comes to holiday shopping, give thought to the type of holiday you're celebrating and the decorations that go along with it. Here are some of the most popular winter holidays and their associated decor:

  • Christmas: Christmas is one of the most widely celebrated winter holidays, and World Market is a destination for decking the halls. Picture a tree filled with ornaments and twinkling lights, a lush wreath on your front door and stockings hung on a mantel. Complete your red and green-clad holiday home with our fan-favorite candles that fill the air with comforting scents of pine, cinnamon, peppermint and more.
  • Thanksgiving: Thanksgiving is a time to gather together and show appreciation, with traditional motifs including fall leaves, cornucopias and pumpkins. Explore our curated assortment of dinnerware, runners in warm hues and rustic decorations to create a picturesque tablesetting. Shop decorations for your own home, find ready-to-gift items for any hostess and pick up pumpkin-flavored treats for all your loved ones.
  • New Year's Eve: Ring in the new year and celebrate with family and friends with decorations that delight including balloons, confetti and streamers. Stock up on bubbly champagne and ready-to-cheers glassware to keep the party going even after the ball drops.

Things to Consider When Shopping for the Holidays

From a Friendsgiving to a White Elephant exchange, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the event-filled holiday season. Here are several things to consider for a successful and streamlined shopping experience:

  • Budget: Setting a shopping budget and sticking to it can help avoid overspending and financial stress during the holiday season. Choose mini games, ornaments and bar accessories for small gifts and stocking stuffers or shop for high-end luggage, quality clothing and kitchen appliances when you're wanting to splurge.
  • Gift-Giving Etiquette: From a turkey platter and gravy boat for Thanksgiving to a menorah and candles for Hanukkah, different holidays and cultures have different expectations, etiquette and traditional items for gift-giving. It's important to do your research and understand the customs and expectations of the holiday you're celebrating.
  • Personalization and Customization: A thoughtful and personalized gift can go a long way in showing someone you care. Consider the recipient's interests and hobbies when selecting a gift, such as books for an avid reader, unique spices and sauces for a foodie or monogrammed towels for the homebody.
  • Online Shopping vs. In-Store Shopping: Online shopping can be convenient and offer more options, while in-store shopping allows for a more hands-on and personal experience. With these pros and cons in mind, shop in a way that suits your lifestyle.
  • Shopping with Sustainability in Mind: With the increasing concern for the environment, consider the impact of your holiday shopping. Look for eco-friendly and sustainable gift options such as reusable goods, items made from recycled materials or products with minimal packaging. Purchasing vintage objects, gifting experiences and shopping for quality over quantity are all ways to help our Mother Earth.

Whether it's Easter, Valentine's Day or Diwali, holidays are a wonderful time filled with love, merriment and celebration. By considering the type of holiday, associated decor and more, you can ensure a pleasant shopping experience. The most important part of gift-giving is showing someone you care, and a thoughtful gift or simply a welcoming festive ambience can go a long way in doing so.
