Most popular from the 1950s to 1970s, Christmas blow molds are full of nostalgia and exude a vintage charm perfect for holiday decorating. Growing up, you might remember seeing homes in your neighborhood glowing with these striking plastic figures — Santa, snowmen and Christmas trees to name a few of the most iconic designs. Believe it or not, blow molds are making a comeback. We've rounded up the best Christmas blow molds, including everything from toy soldiers and festive gift boxes to an adorable golden retriever donning a Santa hat.

Retailers like Walmart, Lowe's and Ace Hardware still make the decorations today. But if you're looking for rare, one-of-a-kind figures from decades ago, explore antique and vintage finds on eBay or Etsy. Note that some picks are fit to be used outdoors and others are suggested for indoor use only. Place Santa and Mrs. Claus outside the front door, so they can happily greet your guests as they enter. Or, create a soft glow throughout your living room with a decorated Christmas tree blow mold featuring old-fashioned peg lights. We've also sprinkled in classic Christmas characters like Mickey Mouse and The Grinch — ideal for households with kids.

Of course, you can never go wrong with outdoor Christmas lights — or maybe even a Christmas inflatable, but why not try something more unique this holiday season? Keep scrolling to find our favorite Christmas blow molds for 2022.
