Star Wars Christmas Decorations: The Ultimate Holiday Guide 2020
Your favorite Star Wars characters in one merry form or another!
Halloween has come and gone, and now it’s time to think about decorating for the upcoming holiday season. For those who don’t already know, we here at Nerd Much? celebrate nerdy Christmas things every year, whether it be nerdy ornaments, ugly holiday sweaters, or just geeky-themed holiday decor.
And although we’ve already shared many cool holiday things this year revolving around geek culture, there’s one franchise that deserves its own mega-post — a collection of all of the things we can find for this franchise. Of course, we’re talking about Star Wars Christmas decorations.
Now, there are many different types of Christmas decor, including tree toppers, lawn ornaments, nutcrackers, lights, stockings, and more. So, the good news is that you have plenty of options if you want to geek-up your house for the holiday season ahead. The bad news, though, is that Star Wars Christmas decorations mostly don’t come cheap, so be prepared to put a hurtin’ on your egg nog latte fund.
There are many great go-to sites for your nerdy holiday needs. Amazon, ThinkGeek, and Merchoid are a few of our favorites, as well as Target. You’ll find some stuff on WayFair.com and at Pottery Barn as well, but be careful of the pricing. Etsy also has a lot of great, more unique items, although you really have to pay attention to the reviews for quality check purposes.
I also want to note that we excluded Christmas tree ornaments from this post because there are so many that it’s a category that deserves its own post (which we’ll have live on the site in the coming days).
So for now, check out our ultimate guide to Star Wars Christmas decorations below, and check back soon as we’ll have more items to include.

Star Wars Christmas Ornaments
This year in the life of the Star Wars franchise has certainly been eventful, both in games and movies. We’ve seen a steady build towards the release of The Last Jedi, the direct sequel to Force Awakens. We’ll finally get to see Rey take up the Jedi mantel and hopefully defeat Kylo Ren. A villain who is trying a little too hard to villain.
We’ve also had plenty of news about the Han Solo spin-off, now with the official title of Solo: A Star Wars Story. Not to mention the major director shuffle the latter had recently, months into production.
The film began with Phil Lord and Chris Miller at the helm, but after a bad falling out with the film’s producer and writer, were kicked off the team. Solo is now directed by Ron Howard, who seems to have a more solid relationship with the producer.
In games, we finally got our hands on EA’s Battlefront II beta, and soon the full game on November 17. Thus far, it’s sure to be way better than the first one and multiplayer is great fun. I must say, playing as Darth Maul is probably the coolest part, even if he isn’t the most practical choice.
If you really enjoyed the past year of Star Wars, there is no better way to show your love than covering your Christmas tree with the best Star Wars ornaments out there. So let’s dive into the 20 best Star Wars ornaments to hang on your tree this year:

Star Wars Christmas Lights
One of the best ways to nerdify your holiday season is with string lights, and there are many great Star Wars Christmas lights available. Not only are they great for your tree, but they’re also great for outdoor bushes, rails, and indoor lighting accents. What’s more, they’re also relatively cheap, so you can decorate without breaking the bank.

Star Wars Stockings
Another great way to bring your holiday decorating to a galaxy far, far away is with Star Wars stockings, and there are many different varieties available, ranging in quality and price. Our personal favorites are the ones from Kurt Addler that are available on Amazon, as they not only look great but they’re also around the $15 mark. Think Geek’s Chewbacca stocking is also pretty rad, if you ask us.

Whether you’re looking for Darth Vader, BB-8, Boba Fett, or a Santa-robe wearing Yoda, you can find it below. Keep in mind that even if you’re not big on the holiday nut tradition, these look great on your kitchen counter or coffee table, anyway.

Outdoor Star Wars Christmas Decorations
You’ve got to be careful with your outdoor Christmas decorations because you can easily put a hurtin’ on your wallet with just a few products. However, there are still tons of options that will make your neighbors say, “Those nerds!”, and if that’s the reaction you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered. I’ll note that you can also find a few outdoor Star Wars decorations at Wal-mart, but to be honest, they’re too cheesy for our liking. There are also some cheesier ones on Amazon, so we didn’t list some of them as well. Anyway, here’s what’s available right now.
