Retro Reindeer Figurines

I have a soft spot for reindeer figurines, because they can be tucked into Christmas villages, among decorative cone trees or on a festive mantel. Anywhere that you need an extra dash of old-fashioned holiday spirit, a reindeer will prance to the rescue.

Amazon has a rotating selection of reindeer, including this trio that I’ve enjoyed for several years. Target sometimes stocks adorable options, too.

Reindeer Pillow Covers

These pillow covers come in a variety of sizes to quickly dress up your sofa for the holidays. Don’t you want to snuggle up with this cute face?

Retro Reindeer Ornaments

Reindeer are well represented on my Christmas tree. Join in the fun with a glass reindeer or Shiny Brite diorama ornament. And don’t leave out everyone’s favorite misfit, Rudolph.

Rudolph Bells

I’ve had this set of Rudolph jingle bell ornaments for well over a decade, so I was surprised to see they are still available. They always find a spot on my tree.

First appearing in a 1939 book and then brought to life with stop-motion animation in 1964, Rudolph is one of the most iconic retro reindeer to add to your decor.

Cute Reindeer Mugs

Let the cheer carry over into the kitchen and dining room with reindeer mugs. This one is the newest addition to my collection. Could there be a better way to drink cocoa? I don’t think so.

  1. Oh Tara..this is cuteness overload!! It is so you and MCM! I love all of it..the reindeer mug, pillows, ornaments….everything is wonderful! (Have you transformed your house now from MCM Fall/Halloween mode to MCM Christmas/winter wonderland?) I know it will look so warm, cheery and awesome! It’s great that Amazon has these great vintage pieces for sale…. you are putting me in the mood to switch out my fall/Halloween mode to Christmas. 😉

    • Yes it is full Christmas/winter wonderland here now! I love all the fun retro decor you can find on Amazon, especially the reindeer! They are just so precious. I’ve got a good collection going now but it’s always tempting to get more. Retro Christmas decor is hard to resist!
