The finest Christmas inflatables for your front garden
Here they are – all the best Christmas blow ups so you can put on a festive show this year. As quickly and easily as possible!
Inflatable Santa Claus
A blow up Santa Claus is a Christmas classic, and there are all sorts of themes and sizes, right up to a giant inflatable Santa in his jolly red suit or an inflatable Santa and reindeer set.
We’ve found that the best places to shop for outdoor Christmas inflatables featuring dear old Saint Nick are Christmas Warehouse and Amazon. Both offer a great range of inflatable Santa outdoor decorations. As well as Santa with inflatable reindeer, the latter includes a set with stable, Santa climbing a Christmas tree, a golfing Santa or even a Santa on a motorcycle inflatable.
You could also choose a giant blow up Santa complete with built-in LED lighting. For a small or large inflatable Santa with a difference, Christmas Warehouse even offers a cricket-playing blow up Santa or a surfing Santa complete with thongs, sunglasses and a surfboard.
The Grinch inflatable
Also among the most popular holiday inflatables is a ‘The Grinch’ blow up character. This much-loved festive movie delights adults and kids alike, year after year, so it’s not really surprising that The Grinch has made it into inflatable form. So why not have a Grinch inflatable Christmas theme this year?
Amazon have several Grinch blow up Christmas options for sale. There are inflatable Grinch Christmas decorations featuring the character clutching the naughty list from top brand Gemmy Christmas inflatables. They also offer a huge Grinch holding a decorated Christmas tree beneath his giant arm. There is also a similarly tall Grinch with a ‘Merry Grinchmas’ bauble.
As Christmas yard inflatables go, choosing a ‘The Grinch’ Christmas inflatable is ideal for those who are a bit ‘bah humbug’ about the festive season. Especially if they’re only actually pretending to feel that way…
An inflatable snowman
Another festive classic among Xmas inflatables, a blow up snowman is also one of the most popular outdoor inflatable Christmas decorations in Australia. The wintry look really stands out during summer, while much of the world experiences cold weather in December.
Whether you want a giant inflatable snowman or something on a smaller scale, these are among the best Christmas inflatables around. Many of the options include rotating LEDs, which is ideal if you want to put on a display of festive lights at the same time. For a modern twist on a Frosty the Snowman blow up, there are also Olaf versions depicting the popular Frozen character.
Incidentally, we also stumbled upon some funny Christmas inflatables in the form of blow up snowman costumes. If you want something completely different to wear for a party, then do take a look at those, which you can also see by clicking the link below.
Gemmy Christmas inflatables
We touched on Gemmy when detailing The Grinch blow ups, and this American company really does offer some of the most unique Christmas inflatables around.
They’re famous as the creators of Big Mouth Billy Bass, popular around the time of the millenium. Their festive inflatables are now sold all over the world.
From a Yoda Christmas inflatable or a Snoopy inflatable Christmas decoration to a range of unusual inflatable lawn decorations featuring Minions, Buddy the Elf or Jack Skellington, taking a look at the Gemmy small or large Christmas inflatables may just give you some different ideas this year. They even offer an inflatable Christmas pig.
A blow up Christmas tree
Inflatable decorations featuring the festive tree add a pleasant touch of greenery to your outdoor space. They’re ideal for those seeking something less obvious, as they blend into the natural surroundings more seamlessly than a bright red or white blow up decorations.
You can purchase inflatable Christmas trees singly or as a set, and some are among the most affordable cheap Christmas inflatables we’ve found. As blow up Xmas decorations go, this is another classic that can be used year after year.
Animal Christmas inflatables
Whether you want a blow up reindeer or a Christmas dragon inflatable to use as inflatable ornaments for your outdoor space, there are plenty of festive options featuring various kinds of fauna.
The Christmas Warehouse range of animated Christmas inflatables includes a inflatable penguin Christmas blow up, a baby dragon, a unicorn, a dinosaur and an illuminated Rudolph inflatable over a metre tall with a wreath around its neck. The latter is surely the perfect choice for someone searching for a Rudolph blow up or large inflatable Christmas decorations.
Complete with Santa hats, the inflatable holiday decorations depicting a teddy bear, dragon or T-Rex are festive – yet far more subtle than some blow ups. The sitting unicorn in white and pink, meanwhile, has a red and white striped horn, red tail and red ribbon round its neck. Super cute for families with small kids!
An inflatable nativity scene
If you like to invoke the true meaning of Christmas, then a blow up nativity scene could well be the best kind of inflatable Christmas ornaments to display in your front yard.
These giant inflatable Christmas decorations typically feature the infant baby Jesus as well as Mary, Joseph and the three wise men. An inflatable sheep in also often thrown in for good measure – and why on earth not? It certainly helps to give this type of Christmas lawn inflatables wider appeal – particularly for kids.
With integral LED lighting often included, a nativity blow up should delight those children who are about to act out that very scene for their school Christmas performance.
Candy Cane inflatables
There are literally heaps of options out there if you want to create a display of Christmas candy canes. As they tend to be smaller than many of the huge Christmas inflatables on the market, they’re ideal for making a pretty scene – indoors or out.
They can also be used as dressing up accessories for festive parties. You could hang a series of them all along the fence, railings or wall, or use them to decorate a large tree in your front garden or backyard. Just make sure the smallest kids don’t try to take a bite!
With their pretty red and white stripes, a set of candy canes makes a great alternative to all those big Christmas inflatables. If an inflatable Xmas tree, Santa helicopter inflatable, giant inflatable reindeer or large inflatable snowman don’t appeal to the minimalist in you, why not go for the sweeter option?
A blow up Christmas arch
If you do want to go all out with the exterior decorations this year, there aren’t many big Christmas inflatables than have as much impact as a large inflatable arch.
Arch-shaped, inflatable Christmas yard decorations available include a green and red one with both a snowman and a Santa, or pick one formed like a giant Father Christmas holding two stockings.
Other curving blow up Christmas ornaments include a funky dancing ‘Christmas Night Fever” Santa, complete with LED lights and a candy-striped arch in red and white. Groovy!
How could we miss out Santa’s best friends? Whether you’d like to find a Santa and reindeer inflatable or would rather go for a stand-alone Rudolph, there are various kinds of blow up Santa and reindeer – as well a large animal without Father Christmas.
There’s an 8 foot reindeer with a wreath around its neck. Much taller than any human, it’s not for those seeking small Christmas inflatables. There are several inflatable Santa and sleigh blow ups to choose from too.
Maybe only the brave would go for the 4 foot ‘humping reindeer’ – it’s your blushes that may not be spared if the local kids ask you to explain exactly what it is that your large blow up Christmas decorations are meant to be doing…
