Christmas Essentials Checklist!
Yes, we know it’s still very early! But here at UK Christmas World we’re in Christmas mode all year round. It’s never too early to plan for the festivities, whether it’s gift buying, menu making, decoration planning or writing a present shopping list for the family.
In this blog we want to help you plan for your Christmas decorations this year. This will save you from the panic and the last minute shopping when the winter months come around, if you get everything organised right away. Here we will give you a little checklist to make sure you have all the essential décor items!
1. Christmas Tree
First things first – real or artificial?
Real Christmas trees are great for giving that traditional festive feel, and can leave your home with the Christmassy scent of pine! But if you choose the no-mess option of an Artificial Tree, our UK Christmas World shop stocks a fantastic range of products in all kinds of sizes, colours, styles and prices!
2. Christmas Tree Decorations
Next come the decorations for your tree!
Depending on your decoration style and colour scheme different ornaments will be needed. We have a wonderful range of decorations in many different colours including baubles, tinsel and tree ornaments. So get planning on what theme you’d like to work with, then pop over to our Tree Decoration section on our website.
Maybe something like these ornaments would take your fancy…
Most of us like to decorate our front door with a Christmas Wreath. We like to think this is another essential Christmas decoration item, but again, depending on your colour scheme and style, you will wish to have something quite specific. We have a lovely range of festive wreaths that will really greet yourselves, your family and guests with Christmas spirit as soon as you approach the house! Choose a completely plain design to get creative and add your own personal touch, or choose one of our pre-trimmed wreaths with pine cones, festive foliage and flowers included! You may even opt for one of our snow dusted wreaths, or one that is pre-lit! This would be a lovely touch to your outdoor decorations and give your home that cosy, warm glow.
4. Indoor Accessories
Don’t forget to trim other areas indoors, such as your dining table and windowsills. Items such as candles, lanterns and festive foliage are perfect for dressing your table, which will be really nice for when you sit down to enjoy your Christmas dinner! Why not try a layout like this idea, found on Pinterest.
Window displays are just as lovely to look at in both inside and outside, so remember to include them in your decorating plans. Whether you want to include some Indoor LED Lights over your windows or just a festive display such as a Nativity Scene, here at UK Christmas World we have all the options you could possibly want. Why not try our Curtain Lights such as the 1.2m White Snowflake Curtain – perfect for any kind of home and at £12.99 they’re suitable for any budget!
5. Decorations for Children
Christmas time is such a magical experience for children. So if you have kids around, make sure your decorations are child-friendly!
Children love decorations they can interact with such as our 5 Piece Wooden Train Set, which can play the role of a toy as well as a decoration!
Make sure the Stockings are hanging ready for when Santa comes to town! Here at UK Christmas World we have a great range of Stockings and Sacks that the children will love to put out, as well as stocking hangers for if you want to hang them on the mantelpiece!
Not only do our Lit Village Scenes look fantastic as a decoration, children will love to peer inside the little windows and imagine what might be happening down in the Christmassy towns! Our Village Scenes include LED lights so can be enjoyed during the night time, and some include music too! Another factor the kids will love! Add some of our Artificial Snow and other Mini Figurines to create your very own magical display!
Other decorations that children will adore are our Plush Christmas Characters. Not only do they add a cosy feeling to your decorations in any room of the house, the kids will love to snuggle up to them while you’re all cosy watching a festive film on the sofa!
We think we covered all essential bases in this blog. Of course check out all our amazing Christmas products on our website for any additional decorations you desire. When you’re all ready to get trimmed, make sure the whole family is truly in the festive spirit by playing some carols in the background and treating yourself to some yummy festive snacks and drinks!
