Buying Guide

Large nutcrackers for sale symbolize power and strength: in German folklore and tradition, they’re given to loved ones so that they can watch over their family and keep danger and evil spirits away.

It was only after World War II that, thanks to soldiers bringing them back home as souvenirs, they became popular elsewhere, too.

The best size nutcracker to get for your front entrance depends on where you plan to place it. The key is to find a balance so as not to overwhelm any other decor or furniture in the entranceway or block the flow of foot traffic through doors and windows. These festive decorations can be placed outside the entrance or just inside so guests can get a glimpse of them the second they walk in the door.

If you have a larger entrance area or surrounding yard, go with a life-size nutcracker approximately 60”-72” high, and angle it slightly at the entrance as if there to greet your guests. Nutcrackers look great when stationed in pairs so you can place them on either side of the entrance to create a balanced look. Ensure that nutcrackers placed outdoors are made from weatherproof materials with fade-resistant paint.

For small entryways or crowded patios, choose large nutcrackers for sale between 20”-25” tall, which are ideal for decorating console tables, stairs, or exterior window sills. Choose a selection of nutcrackers in different heights to create a visually interesting display.

Nutcrackers are available in different styles and pay homage to the traditions of Christmas. The most common type is the wooden nutcracker, often hand-painted to represent characters like snowmen, royalty, and Santa and are typically used in Christmas decorations. They are considered collectibles and handed down for generations.

Novelty nutcrackers are another type and are fun and whimsical. These are made of plastic and usually double as a night light.

Ornament nutcrackers are another type and often showcase classic soldiers. The latter type may be made from wood, glass, or plastic and designed in literally hundreds of ways.
