As we pass November's halfway mark, it's finally time to start thinking about Christmas (without fear of judgment, that is). Of course, there are the big decor statements to consider - the tree, your mantel garland, and the twinkling lights to transform your home - but there's also the festive curb appeal of your front lawn to consider, too. 

When it comes to Christmas decorating, outdoor ornaments often come as an afterthought. As interior design enthusiasts, it makes sense that the inside of our homes comes first, but rather than dragging the aging front lawn inflatables from your garage this year, spare a thought to creating a more stylish festive-scape beyond your front door. 

From traditional wreaths and garlands to adorn your porch to captivating pre-lit figures to place on your lawn, I've trawled some of the most trusted homeware brands out there to find nine of the best exterior decorations you can buy this year for a stylish outdoor space.
