I’m not big on Christmas crafts, but one thing I love doing as a family is decorating a gingerbread house. It smells amazing, it looks cute and if one or two chocolate windows happen to go missing (AKA eaten), that’s OK. These days, there are so many amazing pre-baked kits available for easy decorating and the designs are downright Instagrammable. We found the most over-the-top ginger structures — from a barn to a treehouse. Shop our favorites below, and deck the halls with one of these unique gingerbread houses.
