While giving Christmas gifts like socks and candies may be useful and delicious, neither one is going to be around for the long haul. Collectible Christmas gifts, on the other, can be enjoyed for years to come. Collectibles refer to gifts that are beloved, cherished, passed down through the generations, and may often align with a specific theme as part of a larger collection. We here at Christmas Night Inc. are big fans of collectible Christmas gifts of all sorts and sizes, and we gathered up the best collectible Christmas gifts to share with you.

Christmas Village and Train Collectibles
If any of your intended gift recipients already have a miniature Christmas village or train set as part of their holiday decorations, gifting them with collectibles that match the set can be a welcome gift indeed. With so many different sets available, you want to make sure you know what collection they own so the pieces you give them match the same style and scale.
For recipients who don’t yet have a winter village or miniature train set, you have the opportunity to jump-start their collection with any of the amazing pieces on the market. These range from miniature, lit-up buildings and homes to train stations and cafés. Again, make a note of which collection you selected so you can add new pieces to the growing collection year after year.
Strong, sturdy and nostalgic, nutcrackers make delightful gifts that instantly bring on the Christmas spirit. They also have the added benefit of bringing on instant functionality when it comes to snacking on shelled nuts.
Nutcracker collectible gifts range from the traditional wooden soldiers to themed collections that even include options such as a “Star Wars” and “Alice in Wonderland” theme. You can find a variety of heirloom nutcrackers as well as those representative of different countries and cultures, providing you with a vast selection of charming options.
Collectible Christmas Characters
Whether your pal is a big fan of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” or the tale of “Rudolf the Rednosed Reindeer,” you can find collectible figurines from a variety of classic Christmas stories. The figurines come in a variety of materials, sizes and styles, from the meticulously hand-painted and handcrafted statues of Scrooge to the adorable ceramic figures of Rudolf and friends.
As with many collectible Christmas gifts, the characters make a striking statement when arranged along the mantel or near the tree as part of the holiday décor. And the collection can keep growing with additional figurines you can gift year after year.
Santa Claus Collectibles
Like nutcrackers, you can find Santa Claus collectibles in a huge array of styles. The traditional North American Santa Claus sports the familiar red suit, black boots and jolly red nose, while the European version of Saint Nick wears a flowing robe. Quality Santa collectibles can be crafted out of ceramic, wood, glass or soft materials with a velvet or fabric outfit.
The vast selection of Santa Claus collectibles means you can find a different Santa for every recipient on your list, one that matches their personality, style or existing décor. Opt for Santa on his own, with an overflowing sack of presents, or even perched in his sleigh led by eight prancing reindeer.
Collectibles related to Santa Claus are another category you can explore, with figurines and statues that would be part of Santa’s North Pole home. In addition to the reindeer, you can find a wide range of elf figurines as well as items such as Santa’s throne, Santa’s mailbox and Santa’s hot cocoa café.
While we covered what we feel are the best collectible Christmas gifts, there are many others out there from which to choose. You can even find life-size collectibles, with impressive nutcracker and Santa Claus statues that stand as high as 6 feet tall.
Whichever collectible Christmas gift you choose, you’ll be choosing a gift that keeps on giving to keep the recipient smiling every time they see it on display. Check out the collectibles available at Christmas Night Inc. for even more ideas for Christmas gifts that make recipients smile.
