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.
All the customary Christmas tinsel and paper garlands leaving you a bit cold? Seletti have got some great alternative retro-themed Christmas tree decorations.
The ceramic decorations represent objects drawn from many different decades. Proving those space invaders get just about everywhere, pictured is the version you can get to hang on your tree. There's a 1950s-esque sailor style tattoo heart available as well while you can also buy your very own mini version of Robert Indiana's famous 'Love', originally made in 1964. Finally, there's a decoration honouring everyone's favourite piece of obsolete technology, the humble cassette tape.
Perhaps not what you'd immediately associate with Christmas but some fun objects nonetheless, the decorations cost £7.99 each.
