How to Choose Christmas Tree Decorations in the UK – Buying Guide

Let's start with the basics – what are you looking for when it comes to Christmas tree decorations? You might prefer a particular shape, style, material, or colour scheme, so it's a good idea to determine what you like best before you start browsing.

Baubles or Ornaments - Which Type of Decoration Do You Prefer?

Baubles or Ornaments - Which Type of Decoration Do You Prefer?

Christmas tree decorations usually fall into two categories: baubles and ornaments. While baubles are always a distinctive spherical shape, ornaments can vary in shape and design. Baubles are a great way of adding volume to narrow or smaller trees, whereas you may need more ornaments to achieve the same effect.


Popular festive shapes for ornaments include hearts, stars, and animals, the latter of which could be a good choice for families with children. The possibilities are endless, and will really allow you to get creative. Of course, if you can't decide between the two types, you can always put a mix of both onto your tree!

Choosing Between Traditional and Modern Styles Depends on Your Taste and Home Decor

Choosing Between Traditional and Modern Styles Depends on Your Taste and Home Decor

Another factor to consider is the style of the decorations. Should you go for traditional or modern? Traditional designs usually feature classic winter motifs that never go out of style, such as snowmen, stars, candy canes, and snowflakes.


In contrast, modern decorations tend to be much bolder, particularly appealing to those with an adventurous sense of style and home decor. They typically feature glitter and metallic designs that are intended to be eye-catching.

Choosing the Right Material for Your Needs and Household

Choosing the Right Material for Your Needs and Household

When it comes to picking the material of your dream decorations, it's not always a matter of what looks best. Durability is probably the top concern for many people, especially those with young children or pets.


Whilst glass baubles are elegant and timeless, they break easily so are not really suitable for households with little ones or animals. Shatterproof plastic, metal, and wood are much more durable options, and they tend to be cheaper, too! However, be aware that some wooden designs can be heavy, so they may only be suitable for larger, bushier trees.

Matching Your Decorations to Your Christmas Colour Scheme

Matching Your Decorations to Your Christmas Colour Scheme

Next, let's talk colour schemes! For a vintage festive feel, you can't go wrong with the traditional combination of red and white, especially against the deep green of a Christmas fir. 


Alternatively, to create a more modern display, opt for metallic tones like bronze and gold. Or if you're someone who likes to change their decor every year, choose something neutral like cream-coloured decorations or clear baubles that will always be in style and will go with everything. 

Determining How Many Decorations You'll Need for Your Tree

Determining How Many Decorations You'll Need for Your Tree

Lastly, you should think about the size of your Christmas tree and how many ornaments you'll need to decorate it accordingly. Invest in too many and your tree may fall over from the weight, but not buying enough will result in a dull, empty-looking display.


Larger trees over 10ft tall will benefit from approximately 100-200 baubles, as this number will easily balance out the bushy branches. In contrast, smaller trees of 5ft or less will require no more than 50 baubles (or less!), to prevent them from looking too overcrowded.

    If you’re lucky enough to have access to a wood-burning fireplace, then you can look forward to one of life’s most enjoyable pleasures: spending cosy nights around a glowing hearth. However, a decent fire will require a decent amount of wood and somewhere for that wood to live, making an indoor or outdoor log holder an essential.  A trusty firewood rack should be both functional, and if living inside, aesthetically pleasing. There's a variety of options from log baskets to decorative modern pieces, but while they all do a similar job, there are a few features that make some better suited to different situations. So, that’s what we’re going to explore with this guide and recommendations from Amazon, eBay and John Lewis.
