8 Christmas bauble sets to adorn your tree with this festive season

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree.

Choosing the best Christmas baubles for your Christmas tree is one of the more considered decisions you need to make for the festive season.

What kind of look are you going for? A traditional Christmas setting in red and gleaming gold? Or a soft, romantic look in peaches, pinks and silver. If you love the idea of a cohesive colour theme, there are myriad options for creating a thoroughly co-ordinated look.

Think of your Christmas baubles as building the foundation for your Christmas tree. As well as establishing your colour palette (or a fun mix-and match look), your baubles can also introduce texture and pattern. Choose a combination of shiny, satin and matte finishes for a textured look.

Then consider different shapes and sizes to create interest. To make things easier, many brands have created co-ordinated sets for Christmas, with a variety of shapes, sizes, textures and colours. Think icicles, onion shapes and stars. And to really mix things up, you can get sets of novelty baubles, like miniature Santas.

For a more personalised look, you can then add individual tree ornaments to complement your baubles
