Nativity scenes have been around for a long time and add the true essence of why you celebrate Christmas. This page is all about the best nativity sets for Christmas you can find and I will give you five great categories to choose from.
The categories are: kids stuff, adults, movies, outdoor sets, and finally the best set of nativity Christmas cards you can get today.
My kids have really loved playing with the Little People Christmas story nativity scene playset and my wife and I display a Willow Tree set during the holidays.
Do you display a nativity scene during Christmas? Which one and where do you place it? Let me know by leaving a comment in the guestbook down below.
I know a lot of people like to collect them, so they have multiple sets throughout their house during the Christmas season.
Here are the best Christmas nativity scenes you can get today to enhance the Christmas decorations around your house.
Nativity Sets For Children
There are some really great kids sets you can get today. My kids have played with the Little People one and I’ve seen the Melissa and Doug set as well.
These are all high quality and fun for kids to play with or set up during the holiday season.
These sets are also a great opportunity for kids to learn about the original story of Christmas and the birth of Jesus. What a great story it is.
Adult Christmas Nativity Sets
These sets are for adults and should probably not be handled too much by kids or they might break.
My wife and I have the Willow Tree set and we place it on the mantle every year during the holidays. I recommend putting your breakable nativity sets in an unreachable place for children.
While our kids love to look at our nativity set, they know it’s off limits and they should be careful around them.
No matter which one you choose, they will all add a warm Christmas feeling to your home during the whole holiday season. They can also give you some perspective on life in general and remind you of the reason for the season … at least ours does that for me.
Which one of these is your favorite set?

Best Christmas Nativity Movies, Music and Books
Here is my list for the best nativity movies, music, and books that are great for the whole family.
We have “The Nativity Story” DVD and we watch it in the days before Christmas Day. It’s a really great movie and we consider it a must see along with all the other Christmas movies.
Have you ever seen this movie? It’s great for the whole family and truly brings the birth of Jesus to life.

Everyone loves to send cards out each holiday season because it lets people know you’re thinking about them.
Most of these are a set that comes with 15 cards and just look at the quality and artwork on them!
These are perfect to send to friends and family during the holiday season.
Best Outdoor Christmas Nativity Scenes
Every Christmas I see lots of beautiful outdoor nativity scenes. I’m sure you’ve seen some too. I love looking at them at night because most of them are lit up.
We like driving around looking at all the lights on the houses, but when we come upon a really nice nativity scene we have to stop or drive slow because they really are wonderful.
Here are the most popular outdoor Christmas nativity scenes.
