The Anngarsk bauble wreath from Habitat is super fun and eclectic! It has a fun purple, blue and orange colour scheme that will add a festive feel to your front door. It's priced at £30.


We love this bountiful wreath from Paperchase for just £15! It has more baubles on it than the Habitat one, whiile the colours will suit any rainbow theme perfectly. 

Stag ornament

Whether you decide you want to decorate your table, hallway or living room with a stag ornament then this one from Dunelm for £20 is gorgeous!


We love the brass effect of this stag ornament from Sainsbury's and what's better is that it only costs £10.50! Decorate it by hanging baubles from its antlers.

Faux Christmas tree

Invest in a great quality faux, like this 7ft frosted mountain spruce from Lights4Fun for £279.99. It arrives in 3 separate parts with branches hinged for easy assembly. 


This year Dobbies are selling an artificial Balmoral pine Christmas tree for just £119.20! It's a bright emerald colour with a soft, irregular outline that looks extremely realistic – bargain!

Champagne Christmas bauble

Get in the festive spirit with a champagne bauble from Amara. There's no better motif for celebration than champagne. It's priced at £15 and has a gorgeous glitter and pink design.


Bag yourself a fabulous silver champagne bauble from Poundland for just £1! It also comes in gold if you'd prefer a warmer colour scheme.

Is there anything more traditional than a nutcracker at Christmas time? We think not. This decadent nutcracker from Gisela Graham is £37.95. 


For under half of the price, you can grab a traditional red and gold nutcracker ornament from Debenhams. Priced at £15, this glittered ornament would look great greeting guests in a decorated hallway.
