Looking for really beautiful tree decorations

(19 Posts)

I haven't bought any new decorations for years excluding the year I did some serious poncing and filled some clear ones with snow and miniature letters to Santa and the tree needs a refresh.

I want quality over quantity and something a bit special but not stupidly expensive. I've bought a few from Rockett St George, had a look on NOTHS but their search drives me crazy. Any suggestions for where else I can try?

Tk maxx and Home sense!! Have to give yourself some time for a good look, but some things are really different/nice. We bought a couple of individual items and a few sets of baubbles. X

Ohh and look at www.toa.st for their decorations if you have a bit to spend smile

Thank you, will check those out. Never been to Home Sense but will see whether there is one near me.

Lovely ones in Monsoon/Accessorise yesterday.

I was going to say TK max and homesense too.

Homesense is tk max, same company but home where based.

YY to accesorise too and JL had some nice enchanted ones in this year.

If you want really nice ones, Alessi make them and Halcyon Days have gorgeous ones in special offer right now. Also some Liberty ones but lots can be obtained elsewhere

I have some lovely glass ones from Laura Ashley, they usually have them on 3 for 2.

Would never have thought of Monsoon, thank you. Checking them all out now.

We got most of ours from Christmas markets in Germany & Holland, on holiday one year. It might work out a bit expensive per item though. I did actually ditch some clothes do we could bring them back safely, plus several packs of the wonderful lebkuchen. <unhelpful>

Do you have a decent continental Christmas market near you? Might be worth a look.

I would ditch everything for lebkuchen and decorations.

We aren't too far from Birmingham and I do like mulled wine so a market trip might be in order.

I've also checked out Plumo, Cox and Cox, Graham and Green, Rose and Grey and found a lovely website called Nkuku which has some nice antique style baubles.

What do you call stupidly expensive £10 ? £30? £70?

ebay.de

Was just having a browse. Nobody does Christmas like Germany! Beautiful hand carved wooden ones that you can put a tealight in.

Oh, I did buy my Mum a beautiful Emma Bridgwater one one Christmas.

Something else I always do, is look on sites like Cox and Cox, then find exactly the same thing for a lot less on ebay!

Oldraver Sat 28-Nov-15 13:34:07

I am loving all the cut out ones here

Gisela Graham have some gorgeous peacock inspired ones.

My local garden centre usually has a good Christmas section and they always have some lovely things.

Was going to say Cox & Cox but see you've already looked - also White Company? To be honest everywhere is good this year - have seen some lovely things in M&S, JL, even Matalan. I vowed not to buy any more as we have decorations coming out of our ears (or at least, out of our under-stairs cupboard...) but there are so many nice ones this year!
