Part of the fun of the holiday season is in the traditions that come with it: putting up decorations, baking cookies and, of course, decorating a gingerbread house. Target has a lot of holiday treats and gingerbread house kits to help you get in the spirit this year. You don’t have to bake the gingerbread, either — just glue the pre-baked pieces together with icing and coat them in candy and sprinkles.

You can go the old-school route and build a classic gingerbread house — or get the whole family involved to build a mini-village of gingerbread houses. However, Target has a few gingerbread house kits that stand out from the others. Think tree houses, beach villas and even a replica of a Target store.

Take a look below at the five best gingerbread house kits at Target, aside from its classic styles.
