Christmas catalogs have been a tradition almost as long as retailers have put out catalogs. Sears introduced its first Christmas edition in 1933, and soon became a huge name in Christmas gifts and accessories. Christmas catalogs often ran into the hundreds of pages, with sections appealing to each family member.

Companies like Sears, Montgomery Wards, and Spiegel all released Christmas catalogs. People who grew up with these books have now begun to collect them, often rediscovering the gifts they asked for as kids.
