For hardcore holiday enthusiasts, the season of joy and gift-giving officially kicks off as soon as the temperatures start to drop – and those eager to start plotting out their seasonal decor this year might want to hop over to Etsy for some hidden (and hilarious) gems. This year, everyone is talking about the Buddy the Elf wreath from Will Farrell’s Christmas classic, Elf. But there’s a plethora of other movie-inspired holiday decor just waiting to be snapped up, from Home Alone doormats to Die Hard ornaments.
