Ginger Cottages Now Available!

We couldn’t be more excited to announce that Old World Christmas’ own, Ginger Cottages, are now available for purchase on our website. It’s a cherished brand, founded and developed by Glenn Crider, a creative and masterfully skilled craftsman, who magically designs hidden secrets in each piece, and it has only been available through our retailers, until now. You can’t miss out on the magic. Borrowing light from a single Christmas-tree bulb, each wooden ornament has a small hole in the base that lights up and reveals its magic inside. Each piece is designed with hidden imprints, shapes and characters. They delight the searcher. Can you find all the hidden surprises?

Ginger Cottages

There are so many favorites. One is the Elf Cottage. It’s the exact replica of the Ginger Bread Cottage, but in miniature form because it’s where the elves live. Even though it’s tiny, it features 38 hearts—some hidden and some displayed on the gables. The bigger, but also magical Ginger Bread Cottage is where it all started. It was the original cottage to the brand. Santa is inside and the stocking and other shapes are hidden in the bricks. The gingerbread man greets his visitors with a smile. 

Drosselmeyer’s Nutcracker Shop is a delightful cottage abounding in secret surprises and Christmas nostalgia. There are fifteen visible snowflakes, but there are 30 total on the snow-laden shop. A cheery gingerbread man greets shoppers, and there are many hidden surprises inside. Ginger Cottages isn’t limited to just cottages (but you’ll want to see them all!). There are also Ginger Cottages chapels, a lighthouse, two clock towers, covered bridges, a windmill and Santa’s train. We think that Ginger Cottages are perfect for the tree or to collect and display as a village. There are a few different display stands, with lights included, to start the collection. There are even trees to fill out the scene. They create memories and yearly anticipation as well as spark nostalgia. 

Ginger Boo!

Ginger Cottages isn’t limited to Christmas. We also love the Ginger Boo! line, the spooky and haunted Halloween line. The bats, jack-o-lanterns, and black cats give a creepy and mysterious ambience to each Ginger Boo! cottage. There’s a Creepy Cemetery, a Haunted Mansion, Barn ‘O Bats and a slew of others, but they all scream “proceed at your own risk!”. The Ginger Boo! line also includes display pieces to combine with the free-stand cottages to make a large, scary village.

K-9 Cottages

The K-9 Cottages feature man’s best friend with over forty of the most popular and well-loved breeds. The friendly dog greets in front of its dog cottage complete with glittering snow, a red fire hydrant and well-themed surprise inside. We’re partial to the Golden Retriever, the Labradoodle and the Pug. These cute pooches celebrate the now and commemorate pets of the past. 

Coca-Cola Christmas

Ginger Cottages and Coca-Cola® combine to make the perfect pairing of nostalgia, Christmas and Santa’s favorite drink. The Coca-Cola® collection has over twenty designs each one with a nod to wistful sentimentality of a simpler time. Most of the collection is Christmas or winter-themed, but the drive-in movie, soda shop, country store and thumbs-up sign are year-round favorites with a vintage theme. If Santa drinking a Coca-Cola® isn’t iconic enough, this Ginger Cottages line also has the Coke-drinking polar bear family.


We’re so proud of our Ginger Cottages brand, and so excited that this delightful collection can now be purchased directly from Old World Christmas. Start a new collection for yourself or a loved one today, Christmas is right around the corner! The hidden surprises, and well-crafted details are enchanting to seekers young and old. There are so many to choose from, discover Ginger Cottages today.

I love Old World Christmas so much. I’ve been shopping at the Spokane Outlet Store and at some local stores who carry Old World ornaments for many years. When I go into your store it’s like going into a Christmas Wonderland.

Take Your Christmas Ornaments to the Next Level with Personalization

We think our ornaments can stand alone. They ship well, we have very little breakage, they pack well, and they are always received with a happy smile and warm heart. Our Christmas ornaments are thoughtful gifts. But, with a hand-painted or scripted date and/or name, we think personalization takes each ornament to the next level.
