Lots of ideas to unwrap for decorating your home for the festive season

Kick start the festive spirit at home by filling the house with decorations. From the tree to the table, and everything in between, we have plenty of festive ideas to help you prepare for the season.

Tick off the homemade wreath from your to do list

No house is complete at Christmas without a wreath. They look stunning both on a front door or inside the home. We personally think it looks very effective when you hang several on a white wall. The great thing is that you can choose a ready-made one from our selection of wreaths or you can make your own with the help of our DIY Christmas decor.

Candlelit evenings

At Christmas time, candles make the house feel magic. And as the nights are longer at this time of year, you can enjoy your candles for even longer. They are also one of the simplest ways of decorating your home for Christmas. Simply choose the right design to go with your theme this Christmas from our candle selection (add link), including pink, gold and traditional. Don't be shy about adding more and more candles and candle holders and fill your home with candlelight!

A snug corner while you wait for Father Christmas

Christmas is that time of year when there's a nip in the air. So stay nice and warm at home, while checking out our DIY Christmas decorations! A great big throw, a faux fur rug, a comfy armchair and you've got the perfect Christmas decor for snuggling up in.

Festive spirirt on a budget

Decorating your home for Christmas needn't cost the earth! Here's a great idea if you're on a budget. A coat-hanger, a couple of pretty baubles, some gold thread, and in minutes you have a festive way to decorate your home. If you want to get inspired, check out our selection of baubles.

Fairylights aren't just for the tree

While we usually decorate our trees with fairylights, there's nothing stopping you from decoarating your house with them! Strung around a pillar or a banister, along the wall or even in a jar, fairylights make long winter evenings sparkle. You might also want to try some outside lights for your garden or your patio.

Home is where the heart is

If you have a fireplace at home, why not decorate it to create a Christmas centrepiece! Candles are the obvious choice, but you might also want to try some little statues, a reindeer, stars or a Father Christmas. Your fireplace is the best place to show them off. Discover our statuette selection for a bold display on your chimney breast. And if you can't light a fire in it, why not add a couple of candles to your fireplace instead?

DIY advent calendars full of surprises

Oh it's hard just waiting for Christmas day to arrive. Luckily, that's what Advent calendars were invented for! An Advent calendar isn't just a decoration for your home, it's full of surprises for everyone, children and adults to enjoy. It's also really enjoyable to make one yourself. Discover our selection of calendars to fill with little surprises yourself. It's the advent of something special...

Go au naturel for your Christmas decor...

Just because it's winter, it doesn't mean you can't go green! Make the most of the holiday season to invite holly, ivy, fir and eucalpytus into your home. These plants will help you dress up your arrangements and will add a natural touch to your decor. And if you feel the need to spread the Christmas spirit, why not create a snowglobe terrarium thanks to our DIY Christmas decoration tips.

Nothing says Christmas like red and green...

Are you a fan of a traditional Christmas? Opt for a red and green colour scheme to embrace the traditional spirit. Fill your home with Christmas classic - snowglobes, Father Christmas in his sleigh, sackfuls of gifts, candy canes and all.

Have a bauble

Here's another budget idea for your Christmas decorations. You just need a few baubles in a dish or a little tray with a couple of candles and a little statuette to bring the festive spirit to your home. If you want to keep it elegant, you can vary the patterns while sticking to a consistent style or colour. So if you'd like to get the bauble rolling, check out our bauble selection!
