Deck the halls with rustic ornaments

Wooden Christmas decorations are a brilliant choice for many reasons. Betsy Benn, Founder of the eponymous personalised gift brand, agrees: "Wooden Christmas decorations are a timeless choice and will look as stunning on your tree now as they will in 10, 20, 30 years' time.

"Just like natural wood in your home, wooden Christmas decorations will never go out of style. Adding wooden decorations to something that is already made of wood – your Christmas tree – is like cocoa sprinkles on the top of your hot chocolate. It's meant to be!"

Emily Kelsey, PR Assistant at Lights4fun, is also a fan: "Introduce a classic touch to any home this winter with neutral wooden tones, sprigs of pine and eucalyptus to thread a calming essence throughout your space, creating the ultimate seasonal sanctuary."

Christmas wooden decorations are rustic, perfect for traditional and Scandinavian-inspired interiors. They can be painted or left with a natural finish.

As they’re crafted from a natural material, Christmas decorations made from wood are a sustainable, plastic-free choice that is kinder to the planet. Wood is also hard-wearing, meaning your festive ornaments will last for many years to come, so you’ll save money and help to reduce unnecessary waste.

Handmade wooden Christmas decorations also often have the benefit of supporting artisans and small businesses, as well as having a unique (rather than mass-made) look. It also means you can easily opt for personalised wooden Christmas decorations - a sweet way to commemorate anniversaries and display moments of celebration.

Betsy recommends: "At the start of Christmas, give your veneered or solid wood decorations a little rub with a little beeswax or even just some good old olive oil to feed it. It will glow all over the holidays and have time to dry - important as you don't want it to be damp in storage."

Oh-so-festive and super handy too - what's not to love? This Christmas tree serving platter is charming enough to work as an ornament, as well as being perfect for serving up nibbles.
