One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is seeing all the outdoor lights and decorations. When the kids were younger, we used to get in our pajamas right before bedtime and drive through various neighborhoods slowly, looking at the lights while eating Christmas cookies and listening to the soundtrack of A Charlie Brown Christmas. We always appreciated the work and creativity that people would put into their lawn displays.
If you’re the type of person who loves having a festive lawn during the holiday season, here are some fun outdoor Santa sleigh and reindeer sets. I also included some inflatables and other decorations that included just Santa, or just reindeer.
And a big thanks for being one of those people who make evening drives in December so much more fun for all of us!

Lighted Flying Reindeer and Sleigh Decorations
Christmas lights are just so pretty to me. These lighted decorations are sure to make your yard pretty and festive.
Sleigh and Reindeer Outdoor Light Display
The decoration features blue LED lights with twinkling white lights mixed in. The LED rope lights are securely attached to a metal frame.
Wintergreen Lighting Santa and Reindeer Decoration

Reindeer and Santa Sleigh with LED Lights
This reindeer and sleigh is pre-lit with 70 UL warm white LED lights. The reindeer is 48 inches high and the sleigh is 38 inches long.
Prelit Santa on Sleigh with Reindeer Silhouette
This decoration has a nice splash of color, with red and white lights for Santa and his sleigh and red and dark yellow lights for the reindeer. It is 11 feet long and the lights are static — in other words, they don’t flash or blink.
Santa Sleigh and Reindeer Inflatables
Outdoor inflatables give your yard a playful, whimsical look. One of the benefits to inflatiable decorations is that they are large and make a bold statement, yet they are surprisingly easy to put up (so I’ve heard).

Outdoor Lighted Christmas Reindeer Decorations
If you want to feature just the reindeer on your lawn, then consider these pretty lighted decorations.
Lighted Gold Reindeer Decoration
This 5-foot, pre-lit glittering buck is just beautiful.
Amazon reviewer Bren says:
It’s beautiful and so much better than the ugly wire ones that look like erector sets. Because it is covered with a pretty gold mesh, it looks great in the daytime too.There are many lights all over it.
I love the slightly darker antlers and the collar.
We have had very high winds on the East Coast this winter so sometimes it tilts a bit, but it’s easy to readjust it. It has never come out of the ground.
i’m thinking of getting the baby or doe next year.to keep him company!
Grazing Reindeer with Halogen Lights
This pre-lit grazing reindeer is made with iron wire and rattan and is 7 inches wide and 24 inches high.
Animated Reindeer Family LED Rope Light Christmas Decoration
Amazon reviewers Janna and Mike M. describe why they chose this yard decoration:
Before deciding to buy this set of lighted deer I did a lot of online research. There were many reasons why I chose this particular item:
1. I wanted LED lights so I wouldn’t have to keep changing (or trying to find) burnt out bulbs.
2. I wanted rope lights as opposed to a string of standard mini-lights because rope lights are more reliable and less likely to break when handling.
3. I wanted animated (moving) deer instead of still ones.
4. According to comments, the seller has a great reputation for customer service and communication.
I am really happy with this purchase. The deer were easy to assemble without any instructions. In fact, none were included.
TIP: Assemble the mini deer first to get the hang of it. I used the provided ground stakes but did not use or need the small tie wraps (included) to keep the frames in place. I haven’t disassembled them yet, but I can see they will be easy to store flat until I use them again next Christmas.
Pre-Lit Rudolph at the North Pole
This is an adorable decoration of Rudolf, with his red flashing nose. At 32 inches high, it could be used as either an indoor or outdoor decoration.
Animated Christmas Yard Decorations
If you want to get really fun, you can opt for an animated decoration. This is a great choice if you want to entertain the kids in the neighborhood.
Animated Inflatable Santa in Flying Airplane
Here’s Santa riding the North Pole Express. The propeller on the airplane spins!
Animated LED Lighted Outhouse Santa
This animated inflatable features Santa popping in and out of an outhouse that reads “Occupied” above the door.
Animated Inflatable of Santa in Chimney
This 6-foot tall inflatable has Santa Claus going in and out of the chimney.
Animated Santa Claus in Christmas Tree Inflatable
This animated yard decoration has Santa rising up and down from a Christmas tree. This is perfect for small front yards, as it’s a vertical decoration as opposed to a horizontal one.
I hope I’ve helped you find the best outdoor decoration that will light up your home and yard to give it the perfect festive and welcoming look for this Christmas season!
