Whether you opt for a faux fir or a beautifully-scented real tree, your Christmas tree deserves a proper makeover in time for the big day. Pair the family decorations you undoubtedly have stored in the attic with shiny new trinkets for a show-stopping centrepiece to any Christmas party, or a shrine to all things presents on Christmas morning. Our edit of the best baubles, garlands, lights, toppers and tree skirts is sure to help…
Whether you chose a bauble with a traditional motif or a bright, modern silhouette, baubles are the easiest way to dress up your tree. Feel free to stick with a colour scheme, or embrace a maximalist Christmas with various colours and patterns.
