Want a Christmas tree like no other? Check out our round-up of the best novelty, eccentric, hilarious, glittery, wacky and absolutely wonderful Christmas baubles out there.

Even in the smallest, pokiest of flats, Christmas cheer can be brought with a well-dressed Christmas tree. However, the definition of what ‘well-dressed’ looks like is completely up to the individual.

As much as we love traditional red and gold themes with tasteful tinsel, we have to admit we’re also a sucker for the more eccentric Christmas decorations out there.

Glittery avocado baubles, animal-themed Christmas decorations, a furry hanging sloth bauble, a green cactus decoration – the weirder and wackier the better, in our eyes.

So, from a very fancy crocodile to a mini suffragette, we’ve picked out of favourite, most fabulous and fun Christmas decorations and baubles for 2018. Enjoy!

Halcyon Days have collaborated with Cliveden House and the Iconic Luxury Hotel group to create this beautiful bespoke Christmas bauble, which depicts an elegant line drawing of the grand building along with golden accented windows. Hand decorated in Stoke-on-Trent, the fine china bauble is like a work of art on your tree.
