A nice Christmas shop in the Akureyri area. They have a wide selection of Christmas decorations both downstairs and on the main floor. Those on the main floor are more Iceland focused,

This is a cute and charming Christmas Garden, however, more than likely must more enjoyable during our visit of November with snow - making it feel a lot like Christmas. Worth a gander.
