Getting into the Christmas Spirit with Matalan

Last year was our first Christmas in our house. We were able to get our Christmas tree as part of a house warming present and buy one that was big and healthy looking, one that would last for years. When it came to decorations we wanted to get good quality ones to match with our almost real looking tree without having to spend a fortune. We soon realised Matalan had one of the best Christmas ranges on the High Street and everything was really affordable using a discount code. They've quite often got discounts and up to 1/2 price sales.My rule is no Christmas decorations before my birthday and with that coming up this week it's time to start thinking about getting into the Christmas spirit. I've browsed the whole Christmas section a few times over and here are my top picks from the range.
Knitted Santa Decoration
This little guy is so cute! It reminds me of the elves that are about for the Elf on the Shelf craze. This would look quite good perched on the shelf next to the TV or on a windowsill. I reckon I could get away with one of these in my classroom too!

Wooden LED Star
We've got a few different light decorations and this one has the right mix of winter and Christmas to look classy and not too over the top. I'm not sure where we'd put it but it might be nice on a side table in the hallway or to add a bit of sophistication to the Man Cave. Because it takes batteries you don't need to worry about it being close to a plug.

Wooden Tree Decoration
The baubles on our Christmas tree and a whole mixture of colour themed and individual designs. The bulk of the baubles are silver and sparkly but we've also got a few that tell a story - like our first year in our house, one from Las Vegas and New York. I'd quite like one for us getting engaged this year and the message on this one is quite cute.

Sequin Christmas Cushion
This cushion is so up my street. A bit of sparkle is a must have at Christmas time. I'd be either putting this on our bed or else in amongst all of the cushions on our sofa. 

Penguin Christmas Mug
How adorable is that penguin! These mugs are meant for children so as long as they're not tiny they'd be handy for a wintery hot chocolate or a warming green tea. There's a few different characters to choose from but this one would be allowed out from before the start of December.

Check Print Throw
This isn't strictly Christmas but it looks so cosy and warm. Our living room has a lilac and grey theme and I feel like these colours bring it all together. I wouldn't have to worry about tucking this away for the majority of the year either. Matalan do some of the best throws.

Do you have any Christmas decoration time-scale rules?
Do you have a colour scheme or theme for your Christmas decorations?
