Forget subtle sparkle and colour co-ordination - this year we're embracing kitsch and dressing our Christmas trees with the most bonkers baubles we can find! Which is your favourite?

paper chase bonkers baubles

Meal deal

Tasteful? No. Tasty? Yes! In what has to be the most 2020 move ever, takeaway food is apparently a big trend in baubles this year. Paperchase’s offering includes a pre-packed sandwich, a burger and a vegan sausage roll (yes, really).

bonkers baubles 2020

Eye of the beholder

A statement dangling decoration immediately adds a little festive je ne sais quoi to any mantelpiece, garland or light fixture (mind your head, Mr. M!) but this Cody Foster number is taking pride of place on my tree.

christmas bauble

Christmas spirit

It’s been a long old year, so no surprises that alcohol-themed decorations are more popular than ever. You can’t go wrong with this gin bottle from Anthropologie – just remember to take them down before Dry January.

Christmas quakers

Kitsch and cute! Add this flock of pink rubber ducks to your tree for immediate Americana vibes – it beats three French hens, at least.

Plant lady

If you’ve embraced your green thumb during a year of lockdowns, this pretty pot plant decoration from Oliver Bonas should be right up your street (a lot harder to kill, too).

Santa’s sloth

This funny bauble from Angela Reed sums up how we’re all feeling this Christmas – a bit lethargic and sloth-like. Hang him on the tree and he’ll keep you company this Christmas as your lounge about the house in your Santa hat.

sushi bauble

Super kawaii

Deck the halls with rolls of sushi, fa la la la…John Lewis is bringing a little Eastern glam to Christmas this year with its Art of Japan collection, but this maki roll number is too silly not to love.

Let’s get mythical

Because who doesn’t want a hot pink zebra/butterfly hybrid with glitter hooves on their tree? You can always count on Gisela Graham for some Christmas classics, and her Fantasy Animals collection is just the level of OTT we need this year.

Did you know that Versace made Christmas baubles? You do now! At this eye-watering price, we’re not going to be decking out the entire tree (sorry, Donatella), but maybe we can sneak one on somewhere high up…
