Christmas Essentials Checklist

Yes, we know it’s still pretty 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 or decoration planning we don’t think you can ever be too prepared!

In this blog we want to help you plan your Christmas decorations this year. This will save you from the panic and the last minute shopping stress when the winter months come around. Here we will give you a little checklist to make sure you have what we think are all the essential décor items!


  1. Christmas Tree

This is one of the most traditional and important parts of your seasonal décor. So 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 they can leave you with a never ending clean up job after the dropped needles! if you choose the no-mess option of an Artificial Tree, our UK Christmas World website stocks a fantastic range of products in all kinds of sizes, colours, styles and prices to suit all homes, tastes and budgets!

And if the effort of putting your own fairy lights on your tree is not for you, we also stock a fantastic range of Artificial Pre-lit Trees, like the 5.10ft Hazen Slim Christmas Tree With Warm White LED Lights, just add decorations!


  1. Christmas Tree Decorations

Next come the decorations for your new tree!

Depending on your decoration style and colour scheme, different ornaments, colours and styles 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 to browse at your leisure.

Maybe something like these ornaments would take your fancy…

Try our White Glitter Shape Decorations or our Festive Red Mini With Tree Decoration.


  1. Wreaths

Most of us like to decorate our front door with a good old fashioned Christmas Wreath. They make a lovely display that welcomes family and guests to your home with that happy, festive atmosphere. 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.

Whether you choose something modern or more traditional, we have something for everyone. Why not try our 60cm Luxury Champagne Gold Wreath or our 40cm Pre Lit Decorated Wreath.


  1. 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…

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 Multi Coloured Multi Action Curtain Light– perfect for any kind of home and at £14.99 they’re suitable for any budget!

  1. Decorations for Children

Christmas time is such a magical experience for the whole family, and definitely so 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 Santa’s Musical 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!

We love our Tartan Luxury Christmas Sacks with their fun design, that also look quite stylish so look great as part of your festive décor!

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!


  1. Outdoor Lights

Don’t forget some eye-catching lights for the outside of your house too!

We have a huge range of Icicle Lights for use outdoors that will turn any home into a magical festive wonderland! They’re available in a great range of sizes and colours, so there is definitely something for all homes.
One gorgeous example is our 720 Warm White Snowing Icicle Lights here:



  1. Advent Calendar

Count down to Christmas in style with one of our stunning Advent Calendars. The whole family can get excited for the big day arriving as you knock down the days one at a time, with one of our lovely items such as the Wooden Lit Countdown.


We think we have covered all essential bases in this blog. Of course check out all our amazing Christmas products on our UK Christmas World website for any additional decorations you fancy this year.
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!
