Your home is a beautiful reflection of who you are, and at no time is that more true than during the holiday season. I want my home to be welcoming, inviting, and joyful during the holidays. But more than anything else, my priority is to keep Christ at the center of my Christmas celebrations. Use these 7 items to create a Christ-centered home this Christmas.

7 Items to Create a Christ-Centered Home This Christmas

Each of these items will help you create a lovely, Christ-centered home this holiday season.

1.Hurricane Votive Trio Set

This votive set is absolutely striking. I admit I was a bit taken aback by the price when I first saw it, but once you see them in real life you will understand why. These are quite tall (see the video) and are a beautiful statement piece for a fireplace mantel or the middle of a dining room table. Use candles or these battery-powered candles inside.

 2. Jesus is the Reason Door Banner

This door banner is by far my absolute FAVORITE new Christmas item that I unboxed. You really have to see this on a door to appreciate what it’s like. (Check out my video to see it on my front door.) These door banners slide on and off with elastic at the bottom, plus there is a space where you can hang a wreath over it. Let guests see the light of Christ shining both when they walk into and out of your home.

3. Joy to the World Door Banner

This banner is the same concept as the Jesus is the Reason door banner, with a different design.

4. Advent Wreath

Advent is the season when we prepare our hearts for Christmas. (Click here to learn more about what the word Advent means and how to celebrate Advent in your home.)

Our family uses an Advent wreath along with daily devotions or Bible readings throughout the month of December. Click here to get a free printable about exactly how to use an Advent wreath.

I recommend purchasing the candles with the wreath because the correct colors can be hard to find in a typical store.

5. Advent Activity Calendar

There are many types of Advent calendars (or Countdown to Christmas) available. This one is especially neat because there are meaningful activities for each day.

6. The Shepherd on the Search

If you like the idea of Elf on the Shelf (a pretend figure that hides each day in December, moving to a different location every night so kids find him in the morning), but prefer a Christian perspective, check out The Shepherd on the Search. The Shepherds are on a journey to look for Jesus, and kids can locate this little guy each morning on his trek.

7. Glory to God in the Highest Ornament

Make your tree shine with the story of Jesus’ birth. This Glory to God nativity ornament is just one of many faith-filled ornaments. Check them out here.
