Musical Snow Globes

Updated on April 2, 2015

Snow Globes, Water Globes, Snowstorms, Snow Shakers, Snow Domes

Do you love Snow Globes? Are you shopping for Snow Globes for yourself or someone else? Snow Globes are known by a variety of names - snow shakers, water domes, water balls, snow storms, snow scenes, snow globes, blizzard domes and snow domes. Whatever you like to call them, Snow Globes are one of those collectables on which you can spend a little or a lot of money. I've found some beautiful examples and have added a little information about most of them. These make wonderful gifts for Mother's Day, Birthdays, Graduation and more.

Celebrate any special day with these unique gifts! Share your ideas about Snow Globes in the guestbook at the bottom of the page!

My Snow Globes

I've loved Snow Globes as long as I can remember, but I don't remember when I started collecting them. I have a nice collection. Some I have purchased myself, but many have been given to me.

I have a few sitting out around the house, but the Holiday Snow Globes only come out for about 6 weeks out of the year when we are decorating for Christmas. I set them on my mantel and weave a "string light" around them along with a garland of artificial greenery that shows them off so nicely!

      Snow globes are beautiful, fanciful pieces of art that allow us to enter another world, if only while we peer into it. Blessed by a SquidAngel who loves snow globes.

          This is a lovely lens. Snowglobes just look so festive, I had a cheap plastic one when I was little and loved it so much. Hoping you get some great sales on this. Happy Christmas.

          I was just admiring a few of these snowglobes in a store today and the ones that caught my eye the most have a little battery-powered switch so that they light up and the snow swirls without even shaking it, very cool! May even start collecting these snow globes.
