The holiday season is upon us, which means it is time to spread good cheer near and far. If your yuletide plan includes broadcasting the season’s greetings to your neighborhood, surely some outdoor Christmas decorations are in order. Christmas-themed inflatables have become one of the most popular—and certainly the biggest—way to share your joy. Whether you are picturing a mega, sparkling snowman or animated winter wonderland, there’s a larger-than-life way to deck your lawn, below.
What to Consider
All of the inflatables we include deflate easily and fold up for simple storage; they also all light up. While it seems that’s all you need to think about when it comes to a Christmas-themed inflatable, there are a few other things to keep in mind before making your final purchase.
Size: How much space do you have for an inflatable? Think carefully about how much of your lawn you want taken up by a Grinch or Santa scene, and how tall you want it to be.
Location: Think about where you want to put that cute inflatable snowman and penguin before clicking buy, and whether you are purchasing the right item for that space. You’ll also need to place it closely to an outlet in order for the blower to work.
How We Selected
We reviewed thousands of inflatables, seeking out the highest quality goods we could from reputable companies. We also took professional recommendations into account and read through thousands of user comments before making our final picks.
