4 Unique German Wood Decorations + a Giveaway

This post is sponsored. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Looking for unique Christmas decorations? There’s nothing like setting up your home with decorations that bring joy and the Christmas cheer we all know and love. I’ve recently learned about the Erzgebirge region of Germany and instantly fell in love with their whimsical handcrafted Christmas decorations.

The Erzgebrige shop has a wide variety of handmade wood handicrafts, all made in Germany using the same traditions passed down for centuries. These are great eco-friendly gifts that can be enjoyed for years to come. I also love that by purchasing you’re supporting small businesses/artisans. It’s a win-win. Plus, they’re offering a giveaway to celebrate! Below are some of my favourite decorations that you want to incorporate into your own home this holiday season.

4 Unique German Wood Decorations

One of the things that we love most about German wood decor is the attention to detail that is put into every piece. Whether it’s a detailed carved ornament or a stunning handcrafted piece, each wood decoration is unique and special.

German nutcracker hussar red, height 50 cm / 20 inch, original Erzgebirge  by Seiffener Volkskunst - Nutcrackers - Nr. SV 11702/1

One of our favourite Christmas decorations is the German Nutcracker in hussar red. The beloved German nutcracker is world-renowned and is a cherished symbol of the Christmas season. It’s a unique piece that has become one of the most sought-after Christmas decorations of the Erzgebirge region. Many people collect nutcrackers to add a special touch of warmth to their holiday decor, and they can be passed down through the generations. Maybe you have seen the many beautiful Erzgebirge wooden handicrafts at Christmas markets around the world? If you couldn’t go to Germany now you can bring one home for yourself! Find your nutcracker here.

1-Tier Pyramid - Winter Children (28 cm/11in) by Zeidler Holzkunst

I really like the German Christmas Pyramid named “children in winter”. They are so unique in the way that they work. The candles surrounding the pyramid are lit and the heat from the candles makes the pyramid spin. It’s a beautiful decor piece. You can check out more Christmas pyramids here.

German candle arch Carolers small village, length 57 cm / 22 inch, natural, electrical  illuminated (230V, 50Hz), original Erzgebirge by Mueller Seiffen - Candle  Arches - Nr. MU 12508

This German candle arch named Carolers small village is a great centrepiece for a mantle or console table. For over 250 years, the candle arch of Erzgebirge has been a beautiful festival of lights to represent Christmas time. Johann Teller first created the original wrought-iron candle arch in 1726 then it was handcrafted out of wood. Its form can be traced back to the ancient Erzgebirge mining tradition, when miners hung their lamps around the mine entrance as the last shift before Christmas, forming an arch of lights.

I think the German incense smoker forest dwarves are over the moon adorable. I mean look at that face and imagine him on your table smoking away while incense fills the air. Smokers were meant to symbolize the gifts brought on the Epiphany and clean out the spirits of the previous year. Sign me up for one or two, please. Choose from a full range of incense smokers like a chef, gardener, dinosaur, or something that speaks to the gift receiver. These are perfect for stocking stuffers, too.

    You may have a dress with a gorgeous tulle skirt in mind, or you may have your heart set on a mermaid-style dress. You might choose a garment that is heavily embroidered with beautiful lace patterns, or one that is basic yet elegant. Dresses with long sleeves, party dresses, and dresses for special occasions are all available at comtab and are all worthy of consideration. In addition, you will enjoy their exclusive selection of winter skirts, sweaters, pullovers, and puffer jackets. This is something you should investigate because I believe you will find it fascinating.

    You may choose a dress with a gorgeous tulle skirt or a figure-hugging mermaid gown if you are twelve. You look stunning in both dresses with complex lace details and those with modest design features. comtab is selling long-sleeved dresses, party dresses, and birthday dresses. In addition, their inventory includes distinctive winter skirts, sweaters, pullovers, and puffy jackets. I believe that looking would be enjoyable for you.
