The History of Christmas Snow Globes

Also known as water globes or snowdomes, snow globes were first spotted in Europe in the late 19th century. Faux snow added a playful touch to glass-domed paperweights, which were popular in the late 1800s. Then, an Austrian surgical instrument manufacturer patented Christmas globes in 1900. It was an accidental invention that came about while experimenting with light bulb brightness. The reflective particles he used in a water-filled glass globe fell like snow. Back then, snow globes usually featured tiny church replicas. Eventually, the designs of Christmas snow globes evolved. For instance, modern snow globes feature Father Christmas figurines and charming village silhouettes.

Relive Magical Moments

Bring the magic and sparkle of winter into your home with snow globe collectibles. A gentle shake is all it takes to make the scenery come alive with delightful flurries.

Enjoy Merry Melodies

Set the ambience with a new musical addition to your Christmas collection. Hum along to your favourite Christmas carols with musical snow globes. Choose from either a traditional wind-up or battery-operated one. Play classic tunes like "We Wish You a Merry Christmas," "Deck the Halls," and "Oh Christmas Tree." Just imagine what fun it would be to have a mini Saint Nicholas dashing through the snow with “Jingle Bells” playing in the background!
