Inflatable Christmas decorations for the yard

Updated on December 5, 2014

Get in the holiday mood with a few of these inflatable Christmas decorations for the yard

A full disclaimer here - I was raised in the Jewish faith so I don't own, nor have I ever owned, even one inflatable Christmas yard decoration. Now, if there was a Hanukkah Harry Inflatable yard decoration, I'd be IN!

But, even though I don't have anything to merry up my yard with Christmas lawn decorations for the holiday season, that doesn't mean that I don't think these inflatable Christmas decorations are very funny - well, most of them are funny.

Here in Washington, DC, houses are decorated for Christmas, oh, right before Thanksgiving it seems. Am I the only one who thinks the holiday come too soon on each other's toes? Anyway, I do enjoy driving around and seeing the cool Christmas decorations. It seems to get me in the holiday spirit.

So, in the spirit of giving back some Christmas cheer, I've gone and found you the very best and the very funniest Christmas decorations for the yard. So, grab a hot toddy, put your feet up on an ottoman in front of the fire, roast some chestnuts on the open fire and come on it and see what I've found.

While putting together this article, I noticed this very cute Rotating Carousel Inflatable - in fact, I noticed it twice in the same search of 'Christmas Inflatables'. This 8 foot rotating Christmas carousel is big enough to be the only outdoor Christmas decoration you'd ever need - ah, but that wouldn't be any fun, would it?

Nickeldeon 6 ft Lighted Yo Gabba Gabba Airblown Christmas Inflatable

Christmas lawn decoration

I will admit it - I had no idea who (or what) a Yo Gabba Gabba was until I saw this adorable Airborn inflatable Christmas decoration. So, I researched a little bit about these fellas and here's what I found:

1. Yo Gabba Gabba has their own website - YoGabbaGabba.com

2. Each of the Yo Gabba Gabba characters has his/her/its (?) own name -

3. If you type 'Yo Gabba Gabba' into the search engine too much, you start typing 'You Bagga Bagga...'

Eh, regardless of how silly these Nickelodeon cartoon dudes are, they do make a pretty cool looking Christmas blow up yard decoration.

Santa's got a problem... - ..and a dog that's a bit too friendly

The name of this inflatable Christmas yard decoration is really "6 Foot Inflatable Santa Claus Climbing on Christmas Tree Chased by Dog" but I believe 'Santa's got a problem' is what it should be.

You won't need a bicycle pump to inflate this baby as it inflates all on its own - a big bonus in my book. And, at nighttime, this 6' tall inflatable yard decoration will glow for easy viewing. Just make sure to use the inclosed tethers and ground stakes to hold this Christmas decoration down or it might take off with the rest of the sleigh! Can also be set up inside but that doesn't seem like much fun...

I can almost hear Eeyore saying 'Bah Humbug', but I still think these inflatable decorations are among the cutest going. If I were going to set up a Christmas scene outside, I'd have 2 or 3 of these highlighting my Pooh bear scene.

Tips to keeping inflatable Christmas decorations healthy for years

Just as with anything, inflatable Christmas decorations may have a life span of a few moments or a few years depending on how they're cared for. The below tips and tricks will keep your Christmas outdoor decorations usable and, if not, there's a few tricks to repair these inflatables too.

  1. Make sure to secure outdoor inflatable Christmas against wind by tying them tightly to the stakes and guide wires that come with them.
  2. It's best to uninflate your outdoor Christmas decorations during strong storms - particularly if there is a heavy wind.
  3. Finding a hole in an outdoor inflatable Christmas decoration may be difficult as some of these decorations are pretty elaborate. If your inflatable Christmas decoration won't hold air, take a piece of tissue paper and run it slowly over the inflatable. It should flutter when you find the hole which you can then fix with a piece of duck tape.

This inflatable Christmas carousel actually rotates
