When it comes to the best Christmas decor, we all know the old classic: Christmas tree, baubles and tinsel, with a few lights outside to impress the neighbours. But, not every house has to look the same - and especially if you're being the hostess with the mostest, you want your home to be festively impressive, rather than full of Christmas tat.

No disrespect to the classic tinsel of our childhood generations (and generations to come) because a little bit can go a long way, but if you really want to make an impact, you'll want to think of everything from top to bottom. We're talking table runners and centrepieces, wreaths for front doors and a candle or two to set the mood. Not to mention appropriate kitchenware and glass pieces to adorn all over your dining table. Don't fret though, because it doesn't have to be so complicated.

You can still achieve that fantastic festive spirit through the decor in your home, without going Christmas crazy. Picking up gorgeous and effective bits from The White Company, Selfridges and even Dunelm can upgrade your home to feel like the most wintery wonderland without feeling like you're in Santa's grotto. Trust us, all it takes is a few little alternatives to streamline your decs. For our picks, we've hunted high and low for decor that is anything but gaudy.

Here’s some stuff you’ll want to buy to achieve festive joy in your home and interior, including decorations, wreaths and fun little touches that are perfect for Christmas - just in time for Santa's arrival. Make room for a tree, though.
