You’ve hung up the lights outside, decorated your tree with silvery ornaments, threw in some candy cane decorations and even added some Christmas bedding to your bed. One decoration that doesn’t always come to mind when decorating for Christmas, however, is Christmas chair covers. Whether you use them on your dining room chairs or armchairs in your living room, Christmas chair covers add a festive touch to your seating, and also help protect your furniture. If you have a lot of guests visiting over the holiday season, chair covers can help save your furniture from wear and tear, and also food and drink spills.
Whether you love Santa Claus, snowmen, or reindeer, there are plenty of fun Christmas chair cover options. If you feel like you already have a lot of decorations going on and need something simple, a plain red or green slipcover can help tie everything together.
Read on for our breakdown of the best Christmas chair covers for 2017. Dining chair covers are listed first, and armchair slipcovers are listed towards the bottom.
Best Christmas Dining Chair Covers
1. GIM Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus Christmas Chair Covers
This set of two Christmas chair covers has one Santa Claus face, and one Mrs. Claus face. Each of them is designed in a traditional way that is fun and cheery, and the set would look adorable at a breakfast bar or bistro table. You could even put the famous couple at the heads of a dining table and use more simple chair covers for the rest of your seats, or go all out and buy a few sets to cover all of your chairs. Measuring between 24 and 27.5 inches long (depending on the face) and 17.7 inches wide, the covers will fit most dining chair backs and are open on the bottom so they slip over the back of the chair easily. These also make great gifts for the person who has everything, or someone who loves Santa Claus decor.
Price: $11.99 (40 percent off MSRP)
2. Gilberry Home Decor Ski Party Christmas Chair Covers
These adorable ski-themed chair covers come in three different options: green with Santa Claus, red with a snowman, and green with a reindeer. Each of the characters is skiing on a patch of snow, and there is a Christmas tree and snowflakes in the background. There is only one cover with each order, so you can order multiple of all the same kind, or mix and match a couple of different ones to cover your entire dining set. The covers look like felt and have a three-dimensional look, so they’re really fun and loved by kids and adults alike.
3. AMFOCUS Christmas Dining Chair Cover
These Christmas chair covers are simple in design, as they look like oversized Santa Claus hats. Solid red with white trim and a white pom pom ball at the top, you can pull the cover all the way over your chair for a pointy hat look, or loosen it up to have the top drape over the back. The cover is 18.5 inches wide and 22 inches long, so it will cover the back of most dining chairs, although it’s always a good idea to measure your chairs before ordering. This set comes with six covers, so it will cover most standard sized dining sets. As a bonus, two little ornaments that look like outfits for Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus are included. You could also pair these Santa hat chair covers with Santa hat silverware holders for a full on Santa Claus look at your dining table.

4. D-FantiX Snowman Christmas Chair Covers
If you love snowman decor, these cute snowmen are the perfect addition to your dining table chairs. The set of four chair covers includes four snowmen, each in a different color: blue, red, green, and black. Each of the snowmen has a sweet smiling face, and unlike most other chair covers, the design actually carries around to the back so you can have the covers facing either way. This chair cover set is made for chair backs that are on the narrow side (only 15.74 inches wide), and they don’t really stretch, so make sure your chair backs are narrow enough before ordering. The material is really soft and comfortable to sit against, although it’s spot clean only. The set of four covers is perfect for smaller dining sets or breakfast tables, or you could order two sets to accommodate a full dining set for eight people.
Price: $26.99 (43 percent off MSRP)

Made with 95% polyester and 5% spandex, the set of four covers have a very elastic feel that stretches perfectly over chairs, ensuring a tight fit. While the material will fit a variety of chair sizes, they best cover chairs that have a back height between 18 and 23 inches, a width between 15 and 17 inches, a seat depth between 14-18 inches, and a seat thickness between one and four inches. The chair covers are light green and have Santa Claus printed on the back, along with other Christmas characters and a “Merry Christmas – Happy New Year” sign in the middle. These covers are also super easy to clean as they are machine washable.
