39 Beautiful Festive Baubles

Deck The Halls: adorn every corner of your home with this bumper crop of imaginative Christmas decorations.

Unboxing the decorations you lovingly packed away last January is one of the loveliest seasonal traditions, their familiarity evoking Christmases past in an instant. And while nothing beats a family heirloom, if you’re hosting Christmas for the first time or, simply, you want to add a few glistening baubles to your collection, the shops are bursting with truly beautiful and inventive decorations – from badgers to Bowie; mini Fortnum’s hampers to Highland dogs. These are the ornaments with which we’ll be decking our halls this year.
