Decorating for the holidays is a time-consuming task. It's a good idea to check out a store specializing in holiday decorations where you can find one-stop shopping. Get the tree, all the trimmings and even a few gifts at some of these unique holiday stores. I'm like a kid in a candy store when I visit these shops. Happy shopping.

This family-owned store is Dallas' largest year-round Christmas Store. It first opened in 1986 and became a year-round store in 1991. They offer an extensive collection of collectibles, trees, lights, tree toppers and holiday decor. One of the coolest Christmas items that I've ever purchased was at Noel. It was an illuminated, multi-colored star that twinkled in a variety of patterns. I used it for years before it burned out and I decided to buy a new one. I was so sad when I couldn't repair it myself. I still think about that star every time I put up my Christmas tree. Ah, the wonderful memories.
