What could be more traditional than a star on a tree? There’s no rule against doubling up on festive feeling at Christmas time, so add an extra vintage twist to your tree by including smaller star decorations alongside the main star on top. Whether you prefer circular White Ceramic, classic Wood or even sparkling glass stars, there are plenty of options to catch the eye against the green of your tree this year.

Eco-friendly designs

Enjoying an eco-friendly Christmas is easier than you think, especially when you invest in decorations made from recyclable materials, like wood or paper. Now, we’re not saying you should replace your Christmas tree baubles every year, but it’s nice to know you’ve got decorations that won’t take decades to decompose – while still showcasing stylish designs like our Gold or Silver Concertina baubles or Glitter 3D Angel baubles.



Head-turning baubles
