It’s almost that time of the year again and we can’t deny there’s something truly magical about Christmas and all Christmas decorations! On the one side, we share precious time with our loved ones and create memories to cherish all year round. On the other side, we get really excited about turning our homes into a festive winter wonderland. This year, more so than ever, we’re spending a lot of time in our houses and we can’t wait to start planning our festive home-makeover. With Black Friday just around the corner, now is the perfect time to think about all items you might need and get an amazing bargain! Here’s our helpful guide for the best Christmas decorations to buy in 2020:
It’s not a real Christmas without a proper Christmas Tree! We all need something to get around for the perfect festive family photo. Even a small evergreen tree with beautiful ornaments would do the trick. Going for an artificial Christmas tree or a real one is entirely up to you. Green or flocked? Big or small? There are endless options to fit every house, budget and preferences. Don’t forget to buy a solid tree stand too!
Without a doubt one of our favourite festive activities is decorating the Christmas tree! Some people turn it into an entire experience and a fun night to remember by putting on Christmas music and sipping wine while decorating. For a stylish-looking tree, pick a theme, e.g. gold, red, silver or a combination between 2-3 colours. To make it special and unique hang some family photos and hand-made decorations. Don’t forget the final touch on your tree – a stunning tree topper.
Another essential part of your home Christmas decorations should be the Christmas wreath. It’s beautiful and it makes the entire house looks more festive. You can put it on your front door as well as on any interior doors, which will give your room a more natural and cosier feel.
Imagine waking up on Christmas day and finding a few little sweet goodies stuffed in your stocking. It’s truly magical! Buy or made yourself stockings with the name of everyone in your household for a truly personalised experience. They make the perfect decoration for fireplaces too! Don’t forget the hooks, you’ll need them.
There can’t be a complete festive look for your home without a few gorgeous garlands! You can hang one around your fireplace, staircase bannister, bookshelves, bedroom headboard or anywhere really in your house. They are easy to put and can go virtually anywhere!
Christmas lights are another must-have decoration! You can hang them anywhere in the house – along the mantel, in your bedroom, across your Christmas tree, on your windows, etc. They will instantly give your home a cosier and more festive look! The best part is they can be a good year-round investment as you can use them any time throughout the year.
Give your room a truly Christmas magic look with these traditional figures. Put an authentic wooden nutcracker figure for good luck. Include at least one Santa Claus figure in your home. It will cheer you up every time you look at it! Don’t forget Satna’s helpers – the playful elves and his iconic sleigh with Rudolf and the rest of the reindeers in front.
Christmas tableware is a must, especially on Christmas Day. Festive plates, table clothes, napkins, serving platters and even candles can make up for an unforgettable family dinner!
Traditional Christmas scented candles such as cinnamon, vanilla, coco, orange and more are crucial for your ultimate Christmas feeling. There are plenty of smells to choose from. Spare a few small ones for your Christmas table setting.
Mistletoe was considered sacred by the people of ancient Britain. The Druid priests used it in their sacrifices to the gods. They believed it had magical properties. Nowadays, people believe sharing a kiss under a mistletoe is a sign of good fortune and future blessings. Hang one above your doorway for a more romantic touch this Christmas.
