My 10 Favourite Christmas Decorations available on the High Street

Can you believe it's the 1st of December already? Where has this year gone? I know a lot of people including my sister are putting up their Christmas trees and decorations today, I don't actually put my Christmas tree and other decorations up until the second week of December, I have a funny ritual that the house has to be spring cleaned from top to bottom first, odd I know but it's just something we do in our house, and Father Christmas loves a clean house does he not? But since so many people are putting up their trees and other decorations today I thought I would share my favourite 10 decorations I have found and loved on the high street this year.

We have lots of decorations in our house, from things my girls have made over the years to some lovely bought decorations, we have personalised ones, cute ones, classy ones a real mix of everything, when I have my tree up and house decorated I will post some pictures on here for you all to see if you would like? And even though we don't really need any more decorations, every year the girls choose a decoration each that they like, this is something we have done since Cole's first Christmas, obviously she didn't choose her own decoration then, I chose it until she was old enough to choose her own and we have done the same thing with Lissy since her first Christmas. This year the decorations they chose were, a Polar Bear for Cole, surprise surprise, she loves Polar Bears and collects anything to do with them, she named him Snowy, in fact all her Polar Bears are called Snowy! And Lissy chose a red squirrel, she has named him Terrence, cool name for a squirrel don't you think? Both their decorations are from Marks and Spencer. For the last few years Lissy has chosen a Daschund decoration as she loves them so much but this year she went for the squirrel because he made her laugh, he is a funny little thing I have to admit.

I love shopping for Christmas decorations, and when we were looking for decorations for the girls to choose I saw some really lovely ones in some of the high street shops and thought I would share my favourite 10 with you, if you haven't shopped for decorations yet or like me you just like to look, you might see something you like in my favourite 10. The best way to show you I thought would be to put a photograph of them and then write under each photograph where they are available from and the price. I hope you like my favourite 10.

Polar Bear Tree Decoration £4.00 from Marks & Spencer (All M&S decorations are 3 for 2)

Santa Tree Decoration £4.00 from Marks & Spencer (Also 3 for 2)

Knitted Christmas Tree, Tree Decoration £2.50 from Marks & Spencer (Also 3 for 2)

Red Squirrel Tree Decoration £4.00 from Marks & Spencer (Also 3 for 2)

Snowball Tree Decorations £7.00 for pack of 3 from Next 

Santa Suit Tree Decorations £6.50 for pack of 4 from Debenhams

Crochet Angels Tree Decorations £2.97 for pack of 4 from Tesco

Birds On A Branch Tree Decoration £4.00 from Accessorize

Sausage Dog (Daschund) in Tartan or Houndstooth £6.50 each from House of Fraser

Santa's Laundry Garland £12.50 from Debenhams 

So that's my favourite 10 Christmas decorations available from high street shops, did you spot Terrance and Snowy in there? All the decorations shown are available on line and in store and House of Fraser are having a 2 day event until tomorrow the 2nd of December with money off and the decorations had 50% off making the sausage dogs £3.25 instead of £6.50, Debenhams also have a 20% off deal at the moment so the garland would be £10.00 instead of £12.50 and the Santa Suits would be £5.20 so if you are interested in any of those it is a good time to buy them. I love the angels and think £2.97 for a pack of 4 is a great price, and the snow balls are so cute from Next too, I think I might have to get some of the snow balls and angels for our tree.

Did you see anything you might like for your Christmas tree in my favourite 10? or do you like the garland? I love the garland but don't have anywhere to hang it. Do you choose a new decoration each year or did you as a child? Do you have a theme in your home? Let me know. I hope you liked my favourites and this post made you feel Christmassy and festive and if you are putting your Christmas tree and decorations up today or tomorrow, enjoy it and email me a photograph if you like, I'd love to see them.

Thank you for reading, much love
