Christmas Traditions Live Here…

In the tradition of New York department stores, our displays are works of art unto themselves that come alive and excite the wonder of visitors young and old alike! Our buyers travel from Atlanta to New York and even abroad to Germany, gaining inspiration from showrooms and markets worldwide to bring into our stores during the holidays. We don’t just recreate the displays we admire, we collect ideas and re-imagine them with the Homestead Gardens customers in mind to create a magical shopping experience!

We know our customer–we know that you love the holidays and are looking for some of the traditional themes. That is why we bring back Santa, Snowmen, Baby’s First and more year after year. However, we also know that our customers are creative and aren’t looking to settle for generic holiday decor. For this reason we strive to reinvent these traditional themes each year with new color combinations and ornament selection, and new displays and layouts. Your creativity motivates us to keep our Christmas displays current. Trends in fashion, color and more help direct our buying decisions and infuse the holidays with a fresh and relevant appeal. This year, new themes including “Oh Holy Night”, “The Men we Love”, “I Do” and a few more were introduced into our Davidsonville and Severna Park locations, bringing with them new ornaments and decor items!

Are you a dog lover? A Ravens fan? How about a musician? Whatever your interests, Homestead Gardens has something for you. What sets our stores apart from everywhere else is the variety we carry and the quality of our collection. We marry the specialized selection and quality of the boutiques on Main Street with the quantity found at larger retailers. 

Our Christmas shop satisfies the need for tradition with the desire for innovation. We challenge you to think outside of the box store this Christmas and find what inspires you at Homestead Gardens–whether it be the timeless red and green, or a little bit of silver shimmer.

Homestead Themed Trees

Many years ago, one of our trees decorated with bay ornaments designed by a local artist was casually dubbed “Chesapeake Nautical” thus beginning a popular tradition here at Homestead. The tree became so popular that we added a couple more themed trees the next year entitled “Merry Maryland Christmas.” After that, the themed trees multiplied with each passing year.

Today, Homestead Gardens boasts over thirty themed trees among our Christmas displays, many of which celebrate the rich history of Maryland.

Ornament Selection

All heirlooms are singularly unique and evoke cherished memories over time–attaching themselves to a family history and becoming a part of who we are. But in an age when big box retailers, mass merchants, Internet shopping, and catalogs are the norm, it is now a rarity to find that one-of-a-kind keepsake. The distinctive quality of an heirloom tends to diminish when it can be found everywhere!

That is why, at Homestead Gardens, we take such care in maintaining the spirit of heirlooms by designing and creating our annual heirloom ornament exclusively for our customers. Introduced in 2005, these exquisite ornaments depict downtown Annapolis and other regional scenes and are hand-painted in Russia based on our designs.
