Here’s 17 Tastefully Festive Ways To Decorate Your Home, Courtesy of eBay

Ditch the tinsel and deck your halls with these elegantly festive homeware updates instead.

Decorating for Christmas is one of my favourite things to do when December rolls around. But if you’re anything like me, honestly - the earlier you can bring in some wintery and festive updates to your home the better. But don’t go thinking that decorating for Christmas is all about tinsel and glitter. I absolutely love hanging a wreath on my door, switching out my autumn garlands for eucalyptus and pine, and stashing away my orange pumpkin-spice candles in order to make way for scents of candy cane and fir. For me, it’s all about tasteful updates that can see you through to January - which can sometimes feel hard to come by judging by window displays on the high street. That’s why, when it comes to finding tasteful decor, I take my search online with eBay instead. 

I've had my elf hat on recently and have scoured eBay’s festive home offerings for seriously chic pieces that will get you and your abode firmly in the yuletide mood. Of course, Christmas decor is subjective - with some people preferring a more maximallist effect and others sticking to a more neutral theme. But personally, I class myself as in the middle, with a love for equal amounts of bright jewel tones and metallics, and a mix of fun and cheery decorations combined with more mellow pieces - of which eBay has plenty. Whether its original pieces from independent sellers or second-hand finds in need of a new home, you’ll find everything from chic table settings and festive ornaments to muted wintery accents that will light up any room. Scroll on to discover our pick of best below.
