For those who like holiday decor where the cute factor is kept in check, Kohl's has this 19-inch-tall St. Nicholas Square deer, smartly dressed in a herringbone coat and coordinating scarf. Regular price: $19.99. We bought ours on sale for $13.49. Another surprise at Kohl's: Elle Decor-branded decorative accessories that interpret trends for budget buyers. A set of three ceramic vases -- coordinated in color but contrasting in pattern -- are regularly priced at $29.99. We bought ours on sale for $11.69.
