Ignore the Grinches. It’s never too early for Christmas decorations. 2020 has been an unusual year to say the least and with many of us spending more time in our homes than ever, we don’t see any reason why we shouldn’t be transforming our living spaces into cosy winter paradises right now. From subtle items to eye-catching pieces, here are just a few items that are sure to make your home feel like Christmas.
Yankee Store - Pastel Romance Candle/ Candle Shade bundle
Sometimes less is more. Not only will this Pastel Romance candle from Yankee Store make your home smell delightful, but the accompanying shade is sure to make your living room feel super cosy on those cold winter nights. If your living room is fairly large then we’d recommend picking up a couple of these for full effect. Light the candles, get comfy and relax.
Olivia Aspinall Studio - Quirky tableware
Christmas is all about traditions, but that’s not to say adding in a few contemporary items won’t result in something beautiful. These tableware items from Olivia Aspinall are a perfect example and will make for a great talking point at the dining table (fingers crossed we’ll be able to have family over for the big day!). The numerous colours are sure to match nicely with the reds, greens and gold decorations that you’ll likely have throughout the house this festive season.
This one is more of a recommendation for a place you’ll find plenty of Christmas themed inspiration, rather than a particular item. Sostrene tends to change their in-stock items every couple of weeks so you never know what you’ll discover. The shop almost always has an adorable range of rustic Christmas items in and you're guaranteed to come away with a new perfect addition for your decorations. Happy hunting!

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting a Dachshund, then you’ll know they are indeed little angels, so this all makes perfect sense if you ask us.
