Best baubles to brighten up your Christmas this season

Despite not having a Christmas tree, or maybe because I don’t have a Christmas tree, I absolutely adore baubles. I love the festive season, more often than not, more than my Christmas celebrating friends and colleagues. There is something so joyous about watching the city centre light up and the Christmas cheer that seems to spread to the corner of every town and city. From the festive tunes, to the Christmas tipples, I love London come the end of November, once Halloween is out the way and my fellow Londoners dust off their decorations for another year. Having never had a Christmas tree, Antonia can testify that I was always the first to volunteer for Christmas photoshoot set builds and once opted for not one, not two, but three different tree set ups for my Christmas party wear photoshoot. On that basis, it made sense for me to compile the Christmas bauble shopping list for the season. Whether you go for super classic block colours, caricatures or representations of your personality in bauble form, the bauble market is an explosion of colour and fun and only improves year on year. I’ve rounded up some of my favourite Christmas decorations to shop for this season, from the utterly classic to the outright ridiculous for your viewing and shopping pleasure. I’ve grouped according to style so you can find your bauble tribe. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
