‘Instant Heirloom’ glitter ornaments from Anthropologie

Glitter ornaments
It's the 1st December so time to start properly getting into the Christmas spirit. If that for you includes starting to think about decorating the tree, you may want to look at these 'instant heirloom' glitter ornaments from Anthropologie.

I'm not sure that they do live up to their product name in being something that you'll pass down through the generations but, if you want a very traditional look for your tree, these should should certainly do the job. They are a set of six glass bulbs, decorated with glitter – you'll probably remember something very similar on your gran's tree. These are also described as being 'age-stained', presumably to make them look like something you've dug out of the family attic.

The set comes in a retro-looking box and costs £24.

Jonathan Adler Pop Menagerie Christmas Tree Ornaments

Popmenagerie 
Jonathan Adler’s new Pop Menagerie range proves that Christmas tree ornaments don’t have to be twee or tinselly.

There are three ornaments in the collection; a lion, a peacock and an elephant. Each one is made from white porcelain, decorated with bright bursts of pattern, in the 60s/70s style we have come to expect from Jonathan Adler. They are suggested as an ideal commemorative gift for a baby’s first Christmas, and are supplied in a matching gift box, but I don’t think you need the excuse of a baby to add something this stylish to your tree.

The ornaments cost $28 each (about £20) from the Jonathan Adler website.
