Christmas ornaments to go all-out on
While the centrepiece is always going to be the Christmas tree, mantlepieces, bookshelves and architraves can always be recruited for festive decorative duty with Christmas stockings, Christmas lights and ornaments. At hardtofind, we’ve found all manner of traditional, contemporary and all-out quirky Christmas decoration ideas, including personalised options and wonder-filled items that hail from more wintry climates along with the handmade and homegrown.
Here are some of this year’s hits. Click on the images for a closer look.
Christmas tree decorations (including personalised Christmas ornaments)
Specialists in personalised and repurposed vintage spoons, British seller La de da! Living has created these gorgeous baubles that are every bit as ‘memento’ as they are decoration. Classic but striking, they take on even more significance if there’s one for every member of the family (and give your tree a touch of understated stately charm).
If squirrels, red-breasted robins and snow-dusted woodland scenes don’t quite wash with you when it’s 30 in the shade, celebrate with all that’s ‘Strayan. Make Me Iconic and Dick & Dora are two of our true-blue sellers elevating utes, caravans and fairy bread to a whole new level. Hang them from your tree and display the lighthearted and lovely dioramas in pride of place to fly the flag for all that’s great about the sun-baked Australian Christmas.
If it is traditional you’re after, Nordic Designs are all about Santa: Scandi Style (Lapland is the capital of Christmas, afterall). They’ve got your bases covered for all that’s red, reindeer and rugged up (with an impressive beard or two thrown into the mix), while these adorable ceramic baubles from Mozi Australia capture the cuteness of the English countryside.
When it comes to personalised perfection, it doesn’t come a whole lot better than these ceramic baubles from Scottish seller Twenty-Seven. Stunning in their simplicity, they come with red or natural twine to up the festive or rustic feel respectively. These look especially wonderful in amongst wooden and red ornaments like these ones from Sydney-based Scoops Design.
… Santa sacks, whatever you want to call them, they add an extra crackle of present-packed excitement into the big day. Hung from the mantelpiece (or the bed frame as a specially squeal-inducing wake up surprise) here are five of our favourite personalised Christmas stockings.
