Review of Favorite Christmas Decoration

santa and christmas tree in a snow globe lantern

 I love decorating for Christmas and after over 50 years of marriage, needless to say, I certainly have more than enough Christmas decorations.  I have gotten to the point where I rotate some of my decorations, so I don't end up with too many for our house.  But still, I enjoy getting a new decoration or two each year.  Last year some friends gave us the delightful snow globe lantern pictured in the photo above.  It can be used with batteries or plugged into any USB port, so I have it sitting on my desk in our family room plugged into my computer.  I love the silver snowflakes shimmering around the Santa, snowman and tree. When it is turned on the light catches the snowflakes, and they glisten as they twirl around inside the lantern.

A Variety of Christmas Lanterns Available

I enjoy my lantern so much that I have purchased several for gifts this year.  They can be found in a variety of styles and different features.
In searching Amazon, I found ones with angels, Santas, trees, snowman, trains, toy and a wide variety of Christmas subjects and scenes.  Here is one similar to mine.

Here is one with snowmen around a tree.  It is a different shape and also plays music.

I love birds so this one with a bright red Cardinal looking through a window is really appealing to me.

Features of Christmas Snow Globes

Some of the features of the snow globes that I find appealing are:
  • Runs on either battery or USB plug in
  • A timer that lets you set the snow globe to be on for 6 hours and off for 18 hours
  • Music that can be turned on or off.  These usually include 8-12 different Christmas themed tunes.
  • A subject or Christmas scene available for every taste.
Because of these great features there is some type of snow globe available for most everyone on your Christmas list.

Enjoy!  Merry Christmas!

  1. What a fun holiday d├ęcor item. It's decoration, a light and a music box all in one. Thanks for introducing me to this interesting and pretty Christmas decoration, Mary Beth.

  2. What a beautiful Christmas Snow Globe lantern! It is a very pretty and fun decoration to have on your desk or a table at home. Very lovely during the day and I imagine they are gorgeous when the lights are low in the evening. I do like the timer feature as well. Of the ones you featured I especially like the one with birds, the red Cardinal. Just lovely!

  3. Mary Beth, these snow globe lanterns are absolutely charming! I can see some of the designs being used throughout the winter months, not just during the holiday season. My husband’s parents might really like this!

  4. I love the lanterns! I just set our decorative lantern out 2 days ago and was captivated, once again, by it's beauty. I don't have a snow globe lantern. Mine only lights, but I do love it. Clearly, I need a snow globe lantern :) What a lovely gift idea!

  5. Oh, Mary Beth these are so pretty! I can see that they would make a lovely Christmas gift too. With each year that they are taken out of their protective wrappings, you can enjoy the gift that was given all over again. Truly this would be a lovely gift with lots of memories attached to it!

  6. We all have our favorite Christmas decorations. I see these all the time and really like them, and I've always wanted to buy them, but never seem to get one. Thanks for the ideas Mary Beth

  7. Wow, I love this!, Also makes a fantastic gift. I really like this. Honestly, I can see myself choosing one of these as a gift. Gorgeous.
