It's tempting to go all out around the holidays. After all, who wouldn't want to have a home decorated à la Nancy Meyers—with plentiful garlands wrapped around every balustrade or mantel and twinkling all-white trees brightening up the living room? While it's easy to get carried away when shopping for holiday décor, it doesn't have to cost a ton.

Whether you're decorating a studio apartment or a four-bedroom house, we handpicked some of our favorite affordable holiday décor to last you this year and beyond. The trick: Save your pennies on smaller items like garlands and ornaments, spend a little more on a beautiful wreath or eye-catching holiday stockings, and splurge on items you'll buy once and keep forever—like a faux tree or a long set of LED lights. Happy decorating!
