Take a look at our favourite picks from the new Ikea Christmas decorations, then plan everything else you need for the festive season with our dedicated Christmas page.
1. Inject Scandi style with an LED Christmas wreath, £7
Suitable for indoors and out, this artificial battery-operated Vinterfest wreath has a built-in timer so it will automatically switch on at the same time every day and stay on for six hours, ensuring you'll always get a festive welcome when you arrive home from work. Want to give it a more personal touch? Add extra faux (or real) foliage and decorations to the powder-coated steel hoop and make it the centrepiece of your festive scheme.
2. Choose frosted tree decorations, £9 for 32 baubles
Red and white might the more obvious choice for a Scandi scheme, but why not mix it up with these suitably Nordic designs in icy blues and frosted white? These sparkling Vinterfest decorations come in a range of colours and sizes, and are a great buy at just £9 for 32 baubles. Add to your festive mix with the Vinterfest hanging cone decorations in white, £4.50 for three.
3. Create a glow with an LED table decoration, £22
Perfect as a table centrepiece or a festive addition to a sideboard, this light-up Christmas scene already has us dreaming of a white Christmas. With a built-in LED light source that will last for 20,000 hours, this Strala table decoration in red and white is one Christmas dec that will last for years to come.
4. Make a unique advent calendar, £8
Kids (and let's be honest, adults too), love nothing more than having their own advent calendar for the big December countdown to Christmas. The Vinterfest calendar comes with 25 cardboard boxes in a mix of different designs, plus a set of stickers so you can number each one. Simply fill each mini box with your choice of gift, line them up on a shelf or hang them on the tree as decorations, and you're good to go. Just try not to open them all on the 1st of December...
5. Add a classic touch with robin decorations, £5 for 3
Nothing says Christmas quite like a row of festive robins, so pick up a couple of packs of these Vinterfest hanging decorations for your tree. The felt robins are soft to touch, so they're perfect if you have young kids in the house who are eager to decorate the tree this year – there'll be no shattered glass all over the carpet with these designs. We'll definitely raise a glass to that thought.
6. Brighten up a shelf with an LED garland, £10
If you're anything like all of us at Real Homes, you're always on the lookout for a corner of your home where you can inject some extra festive cheer. No shelf can escape the Christmas touches! This Livsar LED light chain in a suitably Scandi mix of grey and white is ideal for upping your shelfie game during the holiday season, plus as it's battery operated you can use it anywhere in the house. Perfect!
7. Get festive outdoors with an LED tree, £45
The Strala LED tree in black can be used indoors and out, but we think it's perfect for giving a corner of your patio or decking a suitably Scandi vibe. Switch it on, pour yourself a glass of warming mulled wine, snuggle up under a cosy blanket and enjoy a festive get together alfresco in the glow of this decorative tree.
8. Light up your living room with a candelabra, £29
With its antler shape and wooden finish, the Strala LED eight-arm candelabra is a Scandi take on a classic design. The arms of the candelabra can be fixed in different ways, so you can change the shape and size of the design to suit your space. Use it to create a welcoming glow on your windowsill, or place it in the middle of your table for a festive centrepiece.
