Get crafting this Christmas at Homebase, plus the chance to win £250-worth of vouchers

With decorating inspiration from top designer Julia Kendell at homebase.co.uk and over 250 stores packed full of Christmas goodies, find that little something that makes Christmas feel extra special at Homebase

It's so simple to create a home you'll love this festive season, as *almost* everything you need is under one roof - and prices are always low. Pop to the garden centre to discover a lush forest of quality real trees and welcoming wreaths, then wander into the store where you'll find glittering lights to illuminate your home – inside and out. 

If you're updating your decorations this year, you can choose from six cleverly coordinated ranges that cater for all tastes – from decadent decorations to traditional ornaments and cute Christmas characters the kids will love. Plus if your home needs a bit of DIY attention before your guests arrive, you'll certainly be in the right place.

We asked 562 Mumsnetters to choose their festive favourites from the Homebase winter collection - here's what stood out for them…

Alaska artificial Christmas tree

"It's a good price and I like the dark green colour."

"It looks a suitable size for a 'typical' family home. I prefer the darker green colour because it makes the decorations stand out more."

"I like the shape, I think the price is reasonable and I love the traditional colours of the decorations."

"It looks lovely and bushy and like a Christmas tree should look!"

Spiral tree path finders (set of four)

"Pretty, versatile and a good price."

"I think these look stylish and simple and they are useful too! The tree design gives a truly festive feel to this product."

"My front garden is too small for all the other lights apart from these, which would look lovely on my path at the front of my house."

"Not too bling and are also functional to help Santa find his way in the dark."

Heirloom baubles

"These decorations are classic - they are beautiful, elegant and look quite expensive even though they are a bargain!"

"I love real glass baubles - they can last forever if you take care of them."

"They remind me so much of some of my mum's old decorations, and when I look at these I can still feel the excitement at taking them out of their box every year."

"Traditional and suited to different sizes for different parts of the tree."

Cookies for Santa plate

"I love the idea of having a special plate for Santa. This is great for the kids and would form such a wonderful tradition, even when they get older and it isn't 'used' for Santa - it would be a good memory."

"I love little touches like this that make Christmas extra fun for my children."

"I wish these had been available when mine were young."

"I'd use this with my children and could be easily stored for use year after year."
