The Best Holiday Buys From Crate & Barrel

Crate & Barrel

There are cheaper places to shop, but I’m rarely disappointed in Crate & Barrel during the holiday season. Whoever buys for them has great taste, and the store is able to deliver the goods at reasonable prices. Check out this selection of clearance items, holiday gift ideas, decorating touches and luxury furnishings.

Classy ornaments

Crate & Barrel

Year after year, Crate & Barrel rolls out some of the best Christmas ornaments I have seen. And you should take it from me, as I’m a connoisseur of Christmas ornaments. Each year I search out new ones for each member of my family, and would consider expanding my family if only as an excuse to buy more ornaments. At this point in the season, many ornaments are already discounted, including the etched glass set pictured above.

Seasonal glassware

Crate & Barrel

This is the moment to get in on holiday-themed glassware as stores start marking it down — and before it’s too late to use for the season. This stemless wine glass is discounted, selling for $4.17 as of this writing.

While you’re at it, check out Crate & Barrel’s high-quality wrapping paper, which is also discounted now.

Ice tub for cold drinks

Crate & Barrel

While entertaining for the holidays, the refrigerator gets pretty full so it’s helpful to have another place to chill beverages. This hand-hammered aluminum tub that says “New Year’s” rather than “tailgating” is a great choice. It comes in copper, bronze, silver and gold.

Mini waffle maker

Crate & Barrel

This is a screaming deal — just $9.99 as I write this — for a waffle maker. I can picture this in our kitchen (space saver!), although it may be designed for college dorm rooms or some other small space.

Throw pillows

Crate & Barrel

New throw pillows are an affordable way to give a new spark to any room or piece of furniture. Crate & Barrel has a fantastic array of down and down-alternative pillows in shapes, sizes and colors for the holiday season and beyond.

Popcorn maker/bowl

Crate & Barrel

Popcorn is, of course, an essential staple of life. This popcorn maker promises to make the perfect, fluffy popcorn without using fat. Then it serves as a bowl while you’re watching the movie. Afterward — and I love this! — it collapses into a small cabinet-friendly size.

Special hot cocoa

Crate & Barrel

Here’s a gift idea that works as well for a grandkid as for a colleague or favorite teacher. This decorative container of salted caramel cocoa is on clearance now and guaranteed for delivery by Christmas (as of Dec. 14). Other flavors and mugs to enjoy your toasty beverage in are also available.

Metallic candleholders

Crate & Barrel

These scented paraffin-soy wax candles in attractive metal holders are marked down to less than $4 each as of this writing. The copper, silver, gunmetal and gold tones of the petite candleholders are festive for the holidays, but good for decorating year-round.

Firewood carrier and stand

Crate & Barrel

It’s so appropriate to have a fire during the dark, cold winter months, so I’m in favor of anything that makes that easy. This canvas-and-leather firewood carrier detaches from the iron stand so it can serve to both transport and store firewood. It’s a super elegant solution!
