Anthropologie released its holiday collection early – here’s everything on my list

The new Anthropologie holiday collection is a mix of whimsical meets vintage-inspired decor.

Yes, I know it's only September. And yes, I know it starts earlier every year. But if you want to get ahead of the crowd, Anthropologie’s holiday collection has already dropped.

 If I learned anything from shopping for fall and Halloween decor, it’s that things sell out fast. This year, I’m looking ahead and getting into the Christmas spirit a little (okay, a lot) early. 

Anthropologie’s holiday 2023 collection features a good mix of whimsical magic meets vintage-inspired with retro ornaments, cottagecore garlands, and – of course –the coveted Anthropologie holiday mugs, which this year have taken on a 1930s art deco twist.

This year, I have my eye on several Anthropologie holiday home decor pieces, including everything from the Festive Bistro collection (it’s giving future vintage collectible vibes) and the most adorable Anthropologie holiday candles ever. After scouring all eight pages of Anthropologie’s holiday collection, I’m sharing my favorite seasonal picks.  

Anthropologie Wreaths and Garland

Anthropologie’s collection of wreaths, garlands, and other botanical-inspired home decor is a must. The brand makes some of the most whimsical and stylish holiday wreaths I’ve ever seen—and the garland is so realistic, it’s worth the splurge. In this year’s Anthropologie holiday collection, I love the retro globe ornament wreaths and the funky garland greens. I also have my eye on a tinsel tree that is perfect for displaying a small, sentimental ornament collection. 

Anthropologie Table Decor

Ahead of the busy dinner party season, stock up on tablescape items such as a new holiday table runner. I always look forward to Anthropologie’s Christmas dessert plate collection, which doubles as a festive holiday hostess gift. And, this year, I’m definitely splurging on the brand’s festive crackers, too.

Anthropologie Christmas Ornaments

Anthropologie Christmas ornaments boast some of the most whimsical and magical designs I’ve ever seen. And, while I usually wait until the Anthropologie holiday sale to purchase individual ornaments, I always try to snag a set or two in the pre-season. This year, I am loving the advent calendar set—which reminds me of the viral Lenox Spice Village—plus a few other trendy ornament sets. 

Anthropologie Holiday Mugs and Drinkware

Anthropologie mugs are the holiday houseware items I look forward to every year. This year, the brand has an adorable Festive Bistro collection with a matching monogram mug as well as some gorgeous glassware pieces. But, the Anthropology holiday mugs I’m most obsessed with are the retro Santa mugs with a matching pitcher – it’s made for sipping eggnog by the fire. 

Anthropologie Holiday Candles

If you’re looking for the best holiday gifts for friends, coworkers, and teachers, you can’t go wrong with Anthropologie holiday candles. I already have my eye on a few (for my loved ones and myself) from this year’s collection, which includes some of the best holiday candle scents in gorgeous, decorative vessels that can totally be repurposed into home decor.  

Anthropologie Holiday Decor FAQs

When does Anthropologie's holiday decor ship?

Most of the items already live can ship in a couple days, but as the holidays are so far away, some of them are on backorder and will ship in early October. 

When do other holiday decor collections go on sale?

Pretty much from now. Anthropologie are particularly early but you can find lots of other holiday decor collections on sale at Pottery Barn and West Elm, for instance.
