Buying Guide

The best outdoor Santa Claus decorations are those that are made to last you for many Christmases (with a strong build and a weather-proof coating if they’ll be exposed to the elements) and that represent what this holiday means to you.

Whether you’re hoping for a nostalgic, sophisticated, cartoonish or funny vibe, you should look for an outdoor Santa Clause decoration that amplifies it.

Good news: you’re in the right place! You can find the best outdoor Santa Clause decorations on Foter, where we’ve gathered the top Wayfair and Amazon products and organized them through an intuitive picture-based display.

Outdoor Santa Clause Decorations are made from various materials designed to last for longer. However, the most common materials due to durability and ability to withstand the elements are wood and resin.

Wooden decorations are treated for rot ensuring it lasts for longer, while resin statues are hand-painted to provide visual appeal.

However, the resin is also a flexible material that retains the aesthetics of metal and stone but contains only a small percentage of the actual weight of these other two materials. This makes them the preferred choice for Christmas decorations.

When you put up your Santa Claus decorations and when you take them down again is a personal choice, but it’s one that can be influenced by many factors.

For example, in many communities, it’s acceptable to start decorating for Christmas as early as late October, while others prefer to wait until mid-December. A good rule of thumb is to wait until the week after Thanksgiving.

You have slightly more leeway after Christmas. Some communities consider the season of Christmas to extend well into January. You’ll find, however, that most people will have removed their decorations shortly after the New Year.
