Do you like outdoor decorations for the winter holidays? If so, have you considered buying some fun Christmas Inflatables for your yard?

The Festive Season is supposed to be all about having fun, and one of the very best bits is decorating your house and yard. Now if you are the kind of family that really goes all out when decorating every year, then you will need to get yourselves some amazing inflatable Christmas decorations – the bigger the better!

These large decorations are great fun and you can choose big ones that you erect outside or smaller ones that you can use indoors. They are available in lots of different designs, sizes and colours and there is a great selection to choose from both in stores and online.

Amazon has a great range of inflatable Christmas decorations and you can choose from blow-up Santas, Christmas trees, reindeer, candy canes and all of your favourite cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse and Thomas the Tank Engine.

So if you have an annual festive contest with your neighbours to see who can put up the best outside decorations, you need to be searching the shops and online stores now!

For outdoors it is size that matters when it comes to choosing your decorations. Do you want your blow-up Santa or reindeer to be just large or really huge?

Of course, it all depends on the space that you have available for decorating outside your house, but you can really let your imagination run wild when you incorporate inflatables into your decorating plans. So what do you need to be looking for when you are looking for a large outdoor Christmas inflatable decoration?

Although they are all about fun, safety is still paramount. Both the USA and the EU have strict health and safety guidelines, so check that you choose one that either meets or exceeds these guidelines.

Also, make sure that the one you have chosen is made of sturdy, flame retardant and waterproof fabric, as it may have to endure some pretty severe weather conditions over the Festive Season.

Also make sure that the one you choose comes with all the stakes and tethers that you will need to keep it anchored safely. Santa may travel the world in his sleigh on Christmas Eve, but you will want your inflatable reindeer to stay put in your yard!

Most large outdoor decorations are self inflatable and should blow up in seconds, but make sure that you follow all the instructions carefully to stay safe. If your blow-up decoration contains lights, also check that the electric leads and plugs provided are suitable for use outdoors.

The Festive Season, unfortunately, does come to an end, so when you are taking your decoration down, be careful how you deflate it and make sure that you have a strong bag or container to store it in so that it does not get damaged and you can still enjoy it the following year.

What if you don’t have any outdoor space? Well don’t worry because there is still a big selection of smaller inflatable decorations that are suitable for use indoors.

For these smaller blow-up decorations you may need to have a bit of puff, because you generally have to blow them up yourself, but you can find anything from inflatable reindeer antlers that you can wear on your head for parties to blow-up candy canes.

One of the joys of these indoor inflatable decorations is that they are great to have around with small children and pets. They are not as fragile as glass Christmas tree ornaments and so they can be thrown around or dropped with impunity. Just keep a puncture kit handy!

Whatever you have chosen as a decorating theme this Holiday Season, there is bound to be a Christmas inflatable that will look great with the rest of your decorations.

Cartoon characters and characters from kid’s books and TV programmes are very popular and there are inflatable decorations featuring Charlie Brown and Snoopy, Thomas the Tank Engine, Mickey Mouse and Pluto, and Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore.

There are lots of different Santa Claus inflatables with Santa in his sleigh, Santa and Mrs Claus, even a gorilla dressed as Father Christmas! There are also plenty of festive inflatable polar bears, penguins and snowmen that could grace your lawn this Holiday Season.

To get the biggest selection have a look online where there are loads of these great outdoor decorations to choose from. Your yard could be a prize winner this coming Festive Season, so choose the biggest, most colourful and bright blow-up decorations that you can find.

      Thanks KoffeKlatch Gals, the inflatable penguin is cute, but my favourite is the Thomas the Tank Engine Christmas inflatable. Unfortunately, I don't have a big enough garden!
