The Best Holiday Albums To Own On Vinyl

Christmas and holiday music that sleighs.

What are the best Christmas and holiday albums to buy on vinyl? The list of possible records stretches longer than that string of flickering lights.

You're probably hip to Phil Spector's Christmas Gift..., so you might want to dig deeper into the infectious Natty Christmas reggae from Jacob Miller and Ray I. Maybe instrumental is more your jam (but not that Trans-Siberian Orchestra stuff) and could dig John Fahey's solo guitar work. Or maybe you just want to listen to Mariah Carey's Christmas album on repeat for the next two months.

Whatever you're looking for, you'll find it right here at Reverb LP—your winder wonderland of record digging. And if you want to dig even deeper, hit up our Spotify playlist and share it around.

Holiday music not your thing? Do the sounds of tubular bells make you flash back to that time at the mall when you fought your friend for that last Tickle-Me Elmo? Do you love Paul McCartney but think "Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time" sounds like candy-cane painted fingernails on a chalkboard? You can still enjoy the next month or two with these handpicked seasonal favorites.
