Must Have Christmas Characters for Maximum Festive Impact

Christmas is full of characters; more typically those dressed in red suits and winter boots. But a Christmas with The Christmas Cart means you can get your hands on a broader array of fun Christmas characters and elves, as well as Santa’s usual clan.

From those who herald from the snow to those straight from our own Aussie backyard of bush and beach. The Christmas Cart have all the Christmas characters and elves you need to stack your home with Christmas decorating that is packed with festive impact!

Following are a few of our favourite Christmas characters, elves, fairies and all those in between, that have freshly arrived and are ready for adoption at The Christmas Cart. See how you can get maximum festive impact with our gorgeous collection of Christmas characters.


Christmas Decorating Ideas with Christmas Characters and Elves

To achieve maximum festive impact, we recommend adding a few Christmas characters and elves throughout your Christmas decorating. As well as showcasing some of our gorgeous range of Christmas characters below, we have added some decorating ideas for creative inspiration too.

Christmas Character Elves and Fairies

You can’t have a Christmas without an appearance from some Christmas character elves or fairies to help spread their Christmas cheer. Colourful, charismatic, and playful, our Christmas character elves and fairies can easily suit a range of decorating styles and personalities.

Simply sit some Christmas character elves on a shelf or edge of a table to let their colourful legs dangle about for depth and impact. Pair them up, sit them alone, or add some other Christmas characters or decorations to the scene as well.

You can add some personalised Christmas character elves or fairy decorations onto your tree (and how about our Christmas fairy to sit atop the tree for plenty of colourful impact too!).

Or, just like you see in our ‘Santa’s Little Helper’ decorating collection, add plenty of character to your Christmas tree with the legs and butts of some Christmas character elves protruding from the tree!

Watch how we created the Santa’s Little Helper Theme and how we worked magic with our Christmas character elves.

Australian Christmas Characters

Embrace an Australian Christmas for the larrikin characters and summer vibe that we enjoy here in the Southern Hemisphere.

The Christmas Cart stocks all our favourite Australian bush friends to enjoy – koalas, kangaroos, emus, wombats and a very cute echidna too. Our Australian Christmas characters all come festively dressed and ready to join you for the festive season.

For decorating ideas, just take some inspiration from our ‘Bush Christmas’ decorating collection.

Or following an Australian summer vibe, you might prefer some coastal-inspired Christmas decorating instead. If this is the case, just exchange the Australian bush-themed Christmas characters to our beach-themed decorations instead.

See Santa is his boardies ready for the beach, a Christmas mermaid, or happy starfish dressed in their beach attire too. These Christmas character beach decorations can be complimented perfectly with some burlap flowers and seashells for the tree.

Christmas Birds and Animals

Cute and friendly Christmas birds and animals are a playful way to enhance the spirit of Christmas in your home. Kids, both young and old, love our adorable Christmas character animals such as birds, mice, llamas, deer, and more; all which manifest a fun, festive atmosphere around the home.

From a golden reindeer table topper to fluffy pink llamas; jewelled, sparkly and full-feathered Christmas birds; squirrels in scarves; and calico shelf-sitting Christmas character mice. Our range of Christmas character birds and animals is ultra-impressive and guaranteed to help make maximum festive impact!

  • Bo Ho GlamChristmas decorating collection; featuring sparkly birds and reindeer.
  • Christmas Fiesta decorating collection; filled with adorable festively-dressed llamas.
  • Sugar Plum decorating collection; for a selection of delicate pink animals as far as the eye can see.

Christmas Nutcrackers

Much like Santa-themed Christmas characters, nutcrackers bring festiveness to Christmas without even trying, as they are such an iconic and traditional piece of Christmas décor! Our range of nutcrackers includes classically-styled wooden soldiers in the recognisable colours of red, green and blue, and many other variations. How about a gold and white with musical instruments, or a nutcracker dressed as a chef, complete with his own gingerbread too?

You can showcase nutcracker Christmas characters as standalone pieces or combine with other festive decor and Christmas ornaments to create an exciting vignette on any table, shelf, mantel, or floor space.

Santa and His Helpers

Because you can’t talk about Christmas characters and elves without including old Saint Nick and his trusty crew too. We have an impressive range of Christmas characters which covers almost the full spectrum of personalities.

Perhaps your decorating style is one that strays from the traditional, our quirky ornaments are perfect for you! From a golfing Santa, to whimsical gingerbread figurines and of course Mrs Claus too, there really is an ornament for every decorator.

You can create plenty of festive impact, in all areas of the home, with our perfectly themed Christmas characters and elves. Take a look at our full range online and gain plenty of inspiration for your home.
