If you’re tired of the traditional tree or lack space in your home, you might be wondering how you can still make your house look fabulously festive. Don’t worry, we’ll help you get it sorted! We’ve got some beautiful alternative tree ideas as well as top tips on how you can use lights, decorations and ornaments around your home to create some seasonal sparkle this Christmas.

Twig Tree

Twig trees that twinkle

If you’ve decided to ditch the classic Christmas tree this year but are still hankering after a tree of sorts, one of our twig trees could be just the thing! Christmas twig trees add an air of sophistication to any room and aren’t as imposing as traditional Christmas trees, making them great for small spaces or a minimalist look.

This stylish and modern 5ft pre-lit white twig tree will create the perfect finishing touch to your home this Christmas and is bang on trend this season. If you’re struggling for height in smaller spaces, our battery-operated gold glitter LED twig tree and battery-operated silver glitter LED twig tree are both ideal for hallways, windowsills, side tables or kitchen work surfaces, and will effortlessly create that Christmas feel.

For an injection of colour and to really grab attention, choose the gorgeous 6ft colour changing tree, which can be used indoors and outdoors. There’s also the beautifully elegant blossom twig tree, which looks stunning when used to decorate either inside or out – why not put it outside your front door to delight guests and passers-by?

Brilliantly bright banisters

If you don’t have space for any kind of tree this year or if you’re going to be away from home for the big event, why not get creative with the decorations you do put up this year? It’s easy to still create a fantastic festive impact with just a little bit of effort. Banisters provide a brilliant focal point for decorating – check out these beautiful lights and decorations for inspiration to give your home an instant Christmas lift:

The lights here are all battery-operated, making them perfect for draping around banisters (because nobody likes the ‘trailing cable’ look!). Check out our great range of indoor lights for even more ideas.

The classic centrepiece

This year, it’s all about the table centrepiece. To follow this key trend, why not go all out and bring the tree to the table? It’s a simple idea, but one that your table guests are sure to fall in love with. We have a great selection of smaller trees that are just perfect for the job. We absolutely adore:

Jazzy jars and festive thingsBattery Lights v8

A great way of bringing the festivities home is by adding a few lights to your photo frames, plant pots, candle holders, furniture and other household ornaments. Our battery-operated sets of LED micro lights are ideal for this, and come with mouldable wire so you can position the lights exactly as you want. The micro lights are available in white and warm white to match any look. For a gorgeous finish that will wow your guests this Christmas, put battery-operated lights in a large storage jar with a few pine cones, foliage and berries for a wonderfully festive look.
