#2 CERAMIC “C9” LIGHTS

Those big pointy bulbs had the impact of an ornament when used on a tree. Outdoors, the distinctive lights gave every house a cute "gingerbread" look. Today, you can find the strands in a wide range of places — some have even been updated using LED bulbs, but we prefer the softer old-school glow of ceramic bulbs.

#3 “POPCORN” DECORATIONS

Textural melted plastic gave these decorations their "popcorn" name. Though it was used year-round, the material added fun, unfussy appeal to classic holiday motifs.

#4 PLASTIC SOLDIER LAWN ORNAMENTS

Made of blown plastic and lit by a bulb, these charming decorations turned a front yard into Santa's workshop. It wasn't just the adorable soldiers — candles, candy canes, reindeer, and even Santa himself were just so much cuter in this form.

#5 PUTZ HOUSES

Though we've seen plenty of finely-detailed ceramic houses, these simple little glittering cardboard dwellings have just as much charm. Want to start your own collection? You can find authentic versions today for a steal.

#6 CERAMIC LIGHT UP TREES

We have so many fond memories of decorating these tabletop trees with the tiny plastic (or glass, depending on the age) bulbs. There was always one bulb missing...but we knew to keep that side towards the back.

#7 CHRISTMAS PYRAMIDS

If you had a family member, relatively, or friend from Germany (or just loved the tradition), then you likely have seen these clever decorations that use candles to make propellers and other details twirl.

#8 COLOR WHEELS

Nothing made an aluminum tree shimmer so beautifully as a color wheel. With silver and white trees coming back into fashion, we think this fun accessory is very deserving of a comeback.

#9 GURLEY CANDLES

Made by Gurley Novelty, these are also known as the candles that decorated the Christmas table every year...and were never allowed to actually be lit. Every family had a favorite - like the sweet choir above.

#10 BUBBLE-LITES

Dating back to the 1930s, Bubble-Lites brought an unexpected flair to Christmas trees and other displays. When heated, the liquid inside each would gently bubble as if they were filled with champagne.
