When it comes to finding a snow globe for Christmas, for yourself or a special child or adult in your life, there are tons of options beyond the basic ball of water and glitter.
In fact, you can find snow globes that play music, light up and tell an entire Christmas story in their little glass dome.
Snow globes range from budget to ornate – you can find DIY versions online, for a fun crafting afternoon with the kids.
Or you can splash out on a collector’s item with a signature snow globe from Wedgwood – the porcelain brand releases a new collectible snow globe each year.
Disney characters, favourite songs, baby’s first Christmas and more – we’ve got you covered with our roundup of the best snow globes below.
