If you’ve grown tired of the traditional tree or lack space in your home, you may be wondering how you can still make your house look fabulously festive… We’re here to help! We’ve got some beautiful alternative trees as well as fantastic ideas on how you can use lights, decorations and ornaments around the home to create some seasonal sparkle this Christmas.

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 if your prefer a minimalist look.

The stylish and modern 5ft pre-lit white twig tree will create the perfect festive addition in your home this Christmas and will be the envy of all your trend-spotting friends. If you’re struggling for height in smaller spaces, the 2ft battery-operated snowy twig tree and 2ft battery-operated white twig tree are both ideal for hallways, windowsills, side tables or kitchen work surfaces to 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 place it outside your front door to delight guests and passers-by?

If you’re not quite ready to fully step away from the traditional look, our snowy pre-lit tree is the tree for you. Complete with bark detailing and pine leaves, its rustic charm provides a unique feel whilst not straying as far from the traditional tree in design when compared to our other twig trees.

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 minimal 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 as well, making them perfect for draping around banisters – because we all know nobody likes the ‘trailing cable’ look! Check out our great range of indoor lights for even more ideas and pick a style that suits your home.


The classic centrepiece

This year, it’s all about the table centrepiece and being as extravagant as possible. 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 things

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

To instantly transform sideboards, windowsills and mantelpieces, our Let it Glow beaded garland is the perfect festive accessory.
