Angel ornaments are a timeless decorative item that can add an elegant and spiritual touch to any living space. These heavenly creatures are charming and graceful, making them a popular home decor choice for centuries. So let’s take a closer look at different types of angel ornaments you can purchase to enhance your home decor.

Guardian angel figurines

Let’s start with the most popular. One of the most popular types of angel ornaments is the angel figurine. Now, these come in various sizes, styles, and materials. They range from small and delicately detailed porcelain angels you could use as decorative accents on shelves, tables, or mantels for example, to much larger more ornate resin angels that would make a room centrepiece or focal point.  Suppose you’re more of a spiritual person. In that case, you might want to place one on a prayer table or in a meditation space if you have one to create a peaceful and serene atmosphere for your meditations.

Within this general category of angel figurines, guardian angel figurines are probably the most common because they are thought to offer protection and guidance to those who display them in their homes. A guardian angel is often depicted with outstretched wings, symbolizing security and comfort. Guardian angel figurines are typically made of stone, resin, or metal.

Personalised angel figurines

Another type of angel figurine is the personalized angel figurine, which can be customized with a name, date, or special message, making it unique and meaningful. These are perfect for special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, or birthdays. Personalized angel figurines are often made from porcelain or glass and can feature intricate details and designs. We’ll be featuring these within our collections soon, so watch this space!

By way of summary at this point, decorative angels are a popular type of angel ornament that can add a touch of elegance to any living space. These angels can be purchased explicitly for hanging on a wall or placing on a tabletop or a shelf. They often feature intricate details and can come in metal, wood, or glass. Groupings of angels are often quite effective and can be pleasingly sculptural if the right angels are chosen.

Angel wind chimes & statues

Angel wind chimes, on the other hand, are designed more for the outdoors or ‘between’ areas like patios and are another popular type of decorative angel. They create a soothing and peaceful sound as they sway in the breeze which can be quite (shall we say?) ‘angelic’. You’ll find these chimes in a variety of materials such as metal, glass, and bamboo, and they are perfect for outdoor living spaces such as patios and gardens.

Angel statues are another category of decorative angel that can have a significant visual impact when placed in a garden or outdoor living space. They don’t have to be huge to have this impact. 

Angel statue in garden

As a symbol of faith or spirituality, angel statues make an attractive focal point in a garden or can be used as part of a more general garden theme.

Smaller angel statues or statuettes can, of course, also be used as home accents. They should complement a particular interior theme or style. For example, a weathered or distressed angel figurine would add a touch of old-world charm to a rustic or vintage-inspired living space. In contrast, a sleek and minimalist angel ornament would suit a modern and contemporary living space.

Angel gifts

Finally, it’s perhaps not surprising that angel ornaments make a generally good, all-round gift. But they can also be a unique and meaningful gift idea for special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, or Christmas. One unique gift idea is the angel birthstone figurine, which is personalized with the recipient’s birthstone, representing their guardian angel. These figurines are often made from porcelain or glass and can feature intricate details and designs, making them perfect for new parents or anyone celebrating a special occasion.

 Adding an angel ornament to your home decor can bring an elegant and spiritual touch to your living space. Whether you use them as a focal point or a complement to your existing decor style, angel ornaments are an excellent choice for any occasion or purpose.
