When you think of Christmas decor, red and green are the colors that probably come to mind, but there are a lot of variations on the theme. Goth Christmas is a thing, so I’ve rounded up some gothic Christmas decorations, creepy Christmas ornaments, and goth Christmas gifts that you can use to spook up your Christmas decor.
What makes something a goth Christmas decoration? I would say that it would be dark and strangely romantic or appealing in a creepy way. Black would be the preferred color, naturally, but dark grey and dark red and greens would also work for Christmas.
The members of the Artisan Shopping Directory have a lot of items that would be great for decorating or gifting for a goth Christmas theme, but they might sell out, leaving you clicking on links that go nowhere. I’ve linked to their Etsy shops directly in some cases so that you won’t end up at a dead end.

Black Christmas decorations
Upcycled Quilt Artist makes Christmas stockings, including a lot of black ones. If you’re looking for dark decor, these would fit right in.
Allie Bee Candle Co makes black taper candles if you’d like to add some gothic glamor to your mantle.
Holidays Lane has a large assortment of black ornaments and Halloween Christmas ornaments if you want to incorporate some white or orange into the black.
Vaida Petreikis has a set of black felted acorns that would be at home in a goth decor theme for fall and extending into Christmas. They could also be used as Christmas tree ornaments.
Oleander Moon has a Christmas decor section that isn’t all black, but it definitely includes items that would fit into a dark humor category. The candy cane skull is a creepy cute addition to the tree, and my personal favorite is this unfortunate gingerbread man.
