Decorate Your Home in Style with Our Guide to the Best Christmas Decorations

With less than 6 weeks to go, it's time to start thinking about decorating our homes for Christmas, and perhaps buying one or two beautiful decorations for the tree.  Here is our pick of the best around.

Yankee Candle has four new fragrances this year, designed to fill your home with the aromas and memories of a timeless and traditional family Christmas.  Crackling Woodfire is evocative of the heat and scent of an open fire, with hints of cedarwood, nutmeg and warm amber.  Christmas Magic combines the essence of Christmas, balsam and pine, with birch and eucalyptus, to fill your home with that indefinable magic.

Complete the festive sights and sounds of your home with the fragrance of an Alpine winter in The Perfect Tree, a perfect combination of balsam and fir, you can almost feel the snow!  Spiced White Cocoa adds a sweet treat of indulgent cocoa, topped with scents of whipped cream and a hint of nutmeg - hot chocolate time anyone?

Each of the new Christmas fragrances is available in all of Yankee Candle's six classic candle forms, including Large, Medium and Small Jar Candles, Tea Lights, Votive Candles and Wax Melts.

Fill this red wooden Christmas sleigh with baubles, nuts or sweets and display on a side table or in the fireplace for a lovely festive touch.  Measuring 21cm x 13cm x 9.5cm, the sleigh will be a welcome addition to your Christmas collection for years to come.

These pretty baubles will work beautifully with your existing collection or make lovely gifts. The individually handcrafted Plum & Gold Peacock Glass Bauble and Rose Gold with Pearl Detail Bauble are from a selection at Marks & Spencer, and included in their 3 for 2 offer.

Count down to Christmas with this cute wooden Advent train. In traditional red and green, this sweet train features Father Christmas and a wooden number countdown to the Big Day. Would look lovely on a mantelpiece or bookshelf, and great for kids' rooms. For more Advent calendars, see our best Advent calendars of 2017 guide.

Continue the traditional colour theme onto your furnishings with these gorgeous Christmas cushions from Pignut. We love the beautiful embroidery on the nutcracker cushion particularly, and the slogan cushion can't help but bring a smile to your face.  These beautiful handmade embroidered cushions would be a perfect gift, or a beautiful addition to your home during the festive season year after year. And be sure to check out their stunning range of tree decorations too.

Continuing the slogan theme, this pretty 'The Most Wonderful Time of the Year' glitter wall plaque adds a lovely festive welcome touch to you hall or sitting room.  With just the right amount of sparkle (it is Christmas after all!) it will take pride of place on your wall this festive season.

Add even more sparkle and whimsy with this stunning winged unicorn Christmas decoration.  With silver mane and golden horn, this magical creature is ready to bring all your Christmas wishes come true.

There are more beautiful creatures for your tree, or to drape over shelves or mantel with these cute LED reindeer fairy lights. Prancing across your tree, or beautiful draped around a window, these pretty reindeer will look lovely wherever they are.

For a new and beautiful addition to your tree this year, consider the beautiful new contemporary Christmas tree ornaments, Pools of Light.  These engraved glass discs are the epitome of simplicity, and their modern sleek style will add shimmer to your tree.  Presented in beautiful heirloom presentation boxes for safe-keeping, these decorations will last for many years to come.  Why not start a collection and add one of the new designs each Christmas?

The inaugural 2017 range features six Art Deco-inspired designs.  In future years the patterns will be influenced by other design movements, creating a contemporary setting for carefully-picked fragments from the art world's past.  Pools of Light are available in two sizes, and in three different collections.

Add something different to your door this year with this pretty illuminated Pearl & Jewel Heart Wreath from Robert Dyas.  Add it to your bedroom, bathroom, sitting room or hall where the delicate warm white LEDs will light up dark afternoons and evenings.

And finally, if your thoughts have turned to Christmas cards yet, we love these quirky designs from The Printed Peanut and perhaps the hilarious political cards would be perfect fr the office?  See these and more in the range of Christmas cards from Scribbler
