It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – five months early.
While decorating your home in red and green before December 1 is a highly contested debate, Christmas in July reminds us it’s never too early to jam out to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
But Amazon is doing one better with its Christmas in July sale with major markdowns on a wide range of essentials.
So, grab a mug of hot chocolate, light a peppermint candle and start your seasonal shopping at the online megastore. Perhaps you’re needing an artificial Christmas tree for your new apartment or simply want to get ahead on gift wrapping savings. Whatever your buy-ahead mission is, Amazon has you covered.
Featuring top picks, from decor to not-too-ugly sweaters, we rounded up everything to keep your eye on for the winter — this July.
First things first — you need a beautiful Christmas tree to deck your halls. National Tree Company‘s household centerpiece comes with 10 pre-strung lights and in 6.5 ft., 7.5 ft., 9 ft. and 12 ft. options to suit your living space.
Ornaments can be expensive, so investing in quality ones on sale, like these red and gold balls, is a good idea. Plus, you can offset them with these tiny gold ornaments for just over $10 on Amazon.
Gift shopping can be stressful enough, but what’s even more stressful is running out of wrapping paper. Buy this four-pack of traditional designs so you’ll always have a roll on hand.
Even if you’re not into sending holiday cards, it’s still nice to have for last-minute gift-giving. Spruce up the traditional card and envelope with these 3D greeting cards, including pop-up Christmas trees and snowmen.
If you’re into white lights and neutral holiday decor, these cable knit Christmas stockings are the perfect aesthetic for your mantle. Plus, they’re extra long to fit more goodies in (finally, room for hairspray and body lotion).
These LED Color-Changing Christmas Lights are great to add more flair to your pre-lit tree, or if you want some extra decor in your living room. You can even change the brightness level and turn the lights on and off with the included remote.
Dreaming of a red and green place setting akin to Better Homes & Gardens? Not a problem, especially with these Spode Classic Christmas Tree Design Dinner Plates. As one of the best Christmas in July deals yet, you don’t want to miss this luxe set of four for less than $70.
Calling all Elf fans! There is, in fact, a MONOPOLY version of Elf. Clad with Buddy’s favorite, maple syrup, as a piece and Hobbs & Son Publishing as a location on the board, I’m just about ready to play.

Candy cane lights are just too cute to pass up. Shop this 10-piece set for your front entrance or lawn that comes in a rainbow of fun colors (who needs a light show, after all)?
Garland is one of those timeless decorations that looks like it teleported from a Hallmark Christmas movie to your staircase, elegantly wrapped. National Tree Company’s garland is pre-lit and adds holly berries and pinecones for a must-have classic piece.
Looking to gift something more sentimental? This limited edition ornament from Swarovski has the year engraved onto the gold emblem above the crystal and will match anyone’s tree.
It’s 2021, of course, the Christmas tree is Alexa-compatible.
Shop Mr. Christmas’ LED Christmas Tree for less than $200 — more of a deal than the actual Amazon Echo Studio (which is still great).
Yes, Mr. Christmas’ Oversized Metal Truck is another product in our Hallmark vibes list. It’s perfect for indoor and outdoor use alike, even optimal for Christmas card photos with younger children.
Having a miniature Christmas tree in your bedroom is totally brought to you by the millennial and Gen Z generations, and this one from National Tree Company is too cute to skip shopping on.
This gray-and-white-printed tree blanket is great to drape over your couch when watching a Christmas movie or to wrap around yourself at night.
For a more organized approach to tree storage, order this Christmas tree storage bag that can fit a 9 ft. tree.
Sometimes, a fun, oversized bow makes all the difference. Stock up now on nine beautiful bows — a less-than-$10 set — to spruce up the gift-giving experience.
Regardless of age, it’s always a good idea to sit down and work on a gingerbread house. This Christmas village set is great because the cookie cutters will last you for years, unlike traditional pre-made cookie kits.
Some people are so into collecting nutcrackers and for a good reason — they never go out of style. Pick up this cute gingerbread man to make your decor more eclectic.
How beautiful is this wreath? Let’s start with that. National Tree Company doesn’t disappoint with its pre-lit wreath, decked with holly berries, pinecones and silver accents.
The Elf on the Shelf was meant for little kids…until the adults took over and started putting Mr. Elf cooking macaroni by a kitchen pot or fishing for Goldfish in the sink. That said, shop this bundle — including the Elf Pets movie — for less than $45 to pre-plan your Instagram posts.
A crowd-favorite, hot chocolate is the beverage of choice for watching “The Polar Express” or “Elf.” This 11-flavor variety pack from Land O Lakes will likely have you fully stocked until December. Plus, it’s a great way to discover the most delicious flavor of the bunch for repurchasing.
This roundup simply wouldn’t be complete without a Santa suit. Whether you’re dressing up for your little cousin or stocking up before Santa Con, shop this 11-piece North Pole wardrobe — for less than $70 — before the sale ends.
Ugly Christmas sweaters don’t have to be ugly, per se, and this one from Blizzard Bay has a snug, flattering fit with a llama front and center. It’s a great winter accent to stash in your closet.
If you’re not big on the whole ugly sweater thing, you don’t have to be. This Christmas Sweater Cardigan is a bit chicer than the itchy sweater vibe anyway. Plus, you can wear it around the house with pajamas, and nothing beats that.
Though not red and green or speckled with snowmen, this 40-pack of bakery boxes will come in handy once it’s time to bundle homemade Christmas cookies and other treats in December. It even comes with twine and thank-you stickers.
