How did we choose these Christmas decorations?
There are many places to shop for your Christmas decor this year. Be it wreaths, large and small, baubles to dress your tree, or cozy winter decor to make your house feel that little bit more festive. But deciding where to shop can depend on a few factors. Besides, who has the time to trawl through endless online retailers?
Well, me. I've shopped around and searched for some of the best places for you to buy your Christmas decorations for this year. Whether you're wanting to spend a little or a lot, are wanting to buy from small businesses, or find items that work with your eco-ethos, I've found it. These top 10 places above offer cheap but chic budget-friendly buys to suit all home styles too. They're some of our favorite retailers that often feature in our buying guides and other shopping round-ups too, so whatever Christmas decoration you come across, you can trust it'll be worth your spending. After all, there are a few pieces I couldn't help but pick up myself!
When should you put up Christmas decorations?
Now! Well, we wouldn't put a time frame on putting up your Christmas decorations, but there is a general tradition we see people following. This is to put up your Christmas tree, wreaths, and whatever else on the first day of Advent, which falls on Sunday, November 27th this year. And if you can't wait until then, we'd suggest at least making sure you've taken down your Halloween decorations or at least swapped out your fall homeware first.
How can I decorate for Christmas cheaply?
Yes, we do understand: buying new decorations for Christmas is something of a treat. And with higher prices and tighter budgets this year, there's no doubt we're a little strapped for cash. The good news is there are plenty of cheap decorations that look just as good as more expensive options. Of course, you don't need to go "all out" either. In fact, Chrissie Rucker, OBE and founder of The White Company thinks minimalism is best. “I’m a great believer in less is more when it comes to decorating a tree," she says. "I like to choose two or three of the same decorations and mix with fairy lights for a simple-but-striking scheme."
Aside from buying items on a budget this year, there are a few fun Christmas DIY ideas that can cost even less.
How can I make my house look Christmassy?
