Can’t get enough of the holiday season? Me neither. I love Christmas, and sometimes I yearn for that festive feeling all year round, not just in December.
Luckily, there are year-round Christmas stores in the Houston area, so you can soak up the cozy atmosphere, even in the middle of the summer, if you like.
The Best Stores In Houston To Celebrate Christmas All Year Round
I’ll give you a rundown of the key details for each store. I’ll let you know what kind of Christmas items you can expect to find, as well as the other types of decor, gifts, and other items. Some of these stores allow you to shop online, which saves travel time, so I’ll mention that too.
In no particular order, here are 6 excellent year-round Christmas store in Houston:
1. Christmas Rocks
|Address||2931 Ferndale St Houston, TX 77098|
|Opening Hours||Monday-Friday 10 AM - 6 PM,
Saturday-Sunday 10 AM - 5 PM
|Products||Gifts, decorations, quilts|
Christmas Rocks is a cute little boutique with tons of festive products packed into it. I’d recommend visiting here for anything festive. They have hundreds of decorations, large and small, strings of pretty fairy lights, Christmas quilts, gift boxes, Russian Santas, and nativity sets. The hand-painted pewter ornaments from Germany are unique and beautiful, and the nutcrackers are lovely, too.
It’s not just a destination for Christmas fans. They celebrate all sorts of holidays at Christmas Rocks, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Easter, and more. If you need decorations for any reason, it’s worth going down there to take a lot. It’s almost guaranteed that they’ll have something you’ll need (and a lot of other things you’ll want).
The gift section is also great. There are gifts for all occasions here, not just Christmas. They have beautiful music boxes and heirloom toys, beautiful jewelry, quilts, nightlights, candles, glass art, ornaments, wooden boxes, and more. If you’re looking for a unique gift, it’s a great place to go. You’ll probably find something here that you won’t find anywhere else.
You can’t order online, and the stock varies, so the only way to get involved is to go down there and shop in person. The customer service is great, and the atmosphere is cozy and friendly.

|Address||7215 Ashcroft Dr. Houston, TX 77081|
|Opening Hours||Monday-Saturday 9 AM - 6 PM,

There’s a lot to look at in Craftex Wholesale. I’d recommend visiting if you’ve got a good chunk of time to see everything! The Christmas trees here are beautiful, adorned with pretty decorations, which you can buy year-round. They have ribbons, garlands, baubles, gift wrap, fairy lights, Nativities, and large Santas. Anything Christmas-related can be found here.
There are some decorations for other occasions too. Their glassware, for example, is lovely to use for all kinds of special events, not just Christmas. They also have an incredible array of synthetic flowers which can be used for arrangements again and again. They also have cozy candles and a lot of fall-themed decorations. They have partyware for different occasions here too.
You’ll also find a large selection of books, planters, craft supplies, and more.
The website is currently offline, so you’ll need to go down there and check it out for yourself. In my opinion, it’s such a good experience that it’s way better to look in person anyway. Be prepared to get lost in the aisles of beautiful decorations!

The main reason I’d recommend Arcadia is that it is seriously beautiful. The displays are gorgeous, from their Christmas trees to giant festive archways to floral displays. They have beautiful, colorful baubles starting from $5.99 a piece, and you can browse them in their color-coordinated displays.
They have amazing decorations for all celebrations, from Valentine’s Day to Easter to Thanksgiving to Halloween. You can join their Facebook group to get regular updates on new decorations, advertised in part by the owner’s adorable dog, Daisy.
You can find some small gifts here, too. They also have a huge range of high-quality silk flowers and botanicals, and they offer decor classes to customers.
You can’t technically buy online from Arcadia, but they do offer Facetime sessions, and they’re happy to show you their products. They’ll ship any products you like, so if you can’t make it down there, that’s a good way to check out what they have for sale.
4. Arne’s Warehouse & Party Store
|Address||2830 Hicks St Houston, TX 77007|
|Opening Hours||Wednesday-Sunday 9.30 AM - 6 PM|
|Products||Gifts, toys, decorations, craft supplies, balloons, pet supplies, costumes|
Arne’s Warehouse & Party Store is the place to go if you’re planning a get-together. It’s a huge two-story warehouse, so you’ll have to walk a little way to find the Christmas section. Once you get there, though, you’ll find decor, twinkle lights, gift wrap, and more. The prices are pretty good, too, so although there isn’t as much variety here in terms of Christmas decorations, you may be able to find a bargain or two.
They have themed decorations for all sorts of holidays, as well as tons of party supplies. If you need streamers, banners, paper lanterns and decorations, and tablecloths, Arne’s is the best place to be. Plus, they have a wide range of helium balloons, and they offer helium tank rental, which is perfect for special parties.
You can also find other products here, including pet supplies, toys, craft supplies, homeware, electricals, and gifts. There’s so much to look at here; it takes a while to take it all in!
You can’t buy online from Arne’s Warehouse & Party Store, but you can view products and prices online, so you can get an idea of how much you’ll need to spend before you go.

Bering’s is a beautiful store with a wide range of products. The Christmas selection is excellent, slightly higher priced than some of the others on this list, but worth it, in my opinion. They have beautiful baubles, tableware, trinket boxes, dinner plates, candles, and more. I’d recommend checking out their Christmas coffee beans, too.
There is a small selection of items for other occasions here, like Thanksgiving and Easter, and a huge range of homeware items, like throw pillows, scatter cushions, candles, vases, and more.
You’ll also find other items here like outdoor equipment, clothing for children and adults, toys, and games. It’s a good place to go to pick up a gift.
You can buy online from Bering’s, giving you the option of shopping from home. You can even set up a gift registry here, which is useful.
6. C&D Hardware and Gifts

|Opening Hours||Monday-Friday 8 AM - 6.30 PM,
Saturday 9 AM - 6 PM, Sunday 10 AM - 5 PM

C&D Hardware and Gifts has a large amount of Christmas decorations. It’s a good place to go for outdoor decorations, too, including large ribbons and bows, twinkle lights, wreaths, and large inflatable decorations. They also have artificial Christmas trees and big boxes of baubles, so if you’ve got a large area to decorate, it’s worth checking them out. Plus, they have those little items that you might not find easily anywhere else, like Christmas tree stands, tree storage bags, and tree waterers.
They don’t have as many decorations for other occasions, but they do have party supplies and some nice gifts. I like the Melissa & Doug toys, as well as the pretty hand-painted resin angels, which make beautiful gifts for special occasions.
C&D is a hardware store, so you’ll find all the items you can expect from any hardware store, as well as pet supplies and outdoor equipment.
You can order online, which is helpful if you can’t get out to visit the store, and they also offer free in-store pickup for online orders if you want to save on shipping and you happen to be in the area.
