Look: Christmas duvet covers aren't just for kids. In fact, they're a must-have accessory to make your bedroom festive... but, yes, they can sometimes be a little kitsch for our adult tastes. Don't get us wrong – there's no better time for kitsch than Christmas, but to keep your bedroom sanctuary-like, the occasion calls for something a little more grown up.
We've rounded up our favourite Christmas duvet covers from the high street and beyond: from red-and-white polka dots to elegant snowflakes, there's something for everyone – and there's not a cartoon elf in sight.
Browse on for our pick of the best festive duvets, then head over to our Christmas hub page for more seasonal inspiration (because it's never too early).
1. Pick pastels for a toned down festive feel
One for the 'gram, this delicate pink and white set, from £10 for a single from Asda (opens in new tab), looks amazing layered up with contrasting patterns and bold slogan cushions and balanced with a deeper colour, like the green pictured here, or a darker emerald or blue. You know it'll look just perfect on your grid.
2. Find a duvet cover that's Christmassy, but elegant
Look at you with your sophisticated Christmas duvet cover. Best for those of you who prefer a subtle nod to the season, rather than a fanfare, this Debenhams duvet cover, from £30 (opens in new tab), is a very grown-up alternative to the more obviously Christmassy wares on this list. Plus it's reversible – AND it has a mini pom pom trim. We love it.
3. Think sophisticated chalet styling for your Christmas duvet cover
We fell in love with the styling of this duvet cover, from £25 from Next (opens in new tab), but the product itself is very on-trend – we're talking monochrome colour palette with a hint of everyone's favourite yellow: mustard. This also comes with a matching pillowcase set. This is one for anyone whose partner objects that all the festivities are far too whimsical for their liking – what says strong and stoic more than a stag?
4. One for grey bedrooms: a forest-theme Christmas duvet cover
Perfect for modern and period homes alike, we love the intricate pattern on this grey and white duvet cover, from £25 from Dunelm (opens in new tab). And because we're design nerds, we're loving the striped reverse, too – you know, in case you get bored of being incredibly fun and festive (we know you never will). This is a particular winner for Scandi-style homes.
5. Go for subtle Scandi for year-round appeal
John Lewis & Partners never fails to delight at Christmas time, and this duvet cover, from £35 (opens in new tab), is no exception. We love the super-cute skiers and mini houses, and the pine trees are giving us serious Scandi vibes, too. The beauty of this set is that it works for adults and kids alike, so if your teenager's getting in a grump about putting out the same Christmas decorations they've had since they were two, this set will give their space a grown-up (but importantly still festive) refresh.
6. Find a fleece duvet cover for cosy comfort
You literally can't go wrong with a snowflake print at Christmas. We love this one from Matalan, which starts at the bargain price of £20 (opens in new tab) and is made from FLEECE. This is not a drill: we've found the comfiest, cosiest, most hygge duvet cover of them all, and it's an absolute steal. Thank us later.
