More people than ever this year plan to go all out with their decor as a way to make the season feel a little more special. Besides, who can resist the fun and joy that an oversized inflatable adds to an outdoor Christmas display?

While elaborate light display requires a lot of manual work, inflatables aren't quite as laborious to set up and often feature built-in LEDS so they can glow at night. Of course, if you're prepared to get up on that ladder and string up the most extra light display your neighborhood has ever seen, we're right here to cheer you on. 

The following Christmas inflatables are under $150, suitable for outdoor use, easy to inflate and secure to the ground, and will definitely bring a hefty dose of fun to your front yard. Re-use them year after year, or add new ones to your collection.  Choose from classic Santa's to whimsical animals, and even pop-culture icons. The breadth of what's available as a Christmas inflatable, only seems to get larger each year. But act quickly, because the most popular picks sell out first. Christmas is right around the corner, so if you haven't started decorating, what have you been waiting for?
