Ikea is your best bet for cheap and cheerful designs (we love the festive wooden shapes and felt robins) but even when we promise ourselves to stick to the less is more rule of thumb, it's always hard to resist the animal-inspired baubles. From polar bears and penguins to reindeer and our personal favourite, Heals' lobster, there's a chintzy decoration out there for everyone.

On the homemade front, Etsy is the place to go (whether it's lego baubles or porcelain candy canes, they've got it covered) and don't forget - the glitzy styles make excellent Christmas gifts, too. Selfridges has a great range of personalised baubles and Georg Jensen's silver firs will add a touch of luxe to any tree.
