50 baubles is more than enough to dress up your Christmas tree – you could even have a forest of mini Christmas trees, and have plenty to decorate them with thanks to this little box of magic. We love the chic colours – silver goes so well with pink and icy blue, and they’ll look extra gorgeous on a bridal-white coloured tree. You get all this fabulous-ness for just £6, meaning you could even splash out on two boxes. Which brings us on to the next amazing Primark purchase…
If pink, blue and green don’t suit your aesthetic, go classic with these super festive delights. You can snap up a box of white, red and green baubles – including some irresistible looking red and white stripes baubles – for just £6. Even if you don’t have space for a tree, you can artfully display these in a large bowl on a coffee table or at your check out, or you can drape them over a large branch spray painted white for an artistic take on Christmas cheer.
Great lighting options are key in a bridal boutique, and Christmastime is no different. Lighting will add to the festive feel in your shop, and if you’re looking to do that then take a closer look at this gorgeous snow globe inspired light up dome, which can stand alone illuminating a corner, or take pride of place on an end table. It gives off a gorgeously cosy glow and just looks mesmerising. And, it’s an absolute steal at £8.
Sticking with the lighting theme, what about this awesome light-up white star? You can actually display this all year around as it’s not strictly Christmassy and will look great lighting up an accessory shelf throughout the year. It’s only £3, so you could even buy a couple and make a gorgeous wall feature out of them, or spray paint them different metallic hues for a striking look.
If you only want the most festive of lights in your shop this Christmas – and we totally don’t blame you if that’s the case, Christmas is only once a year after all – consider this super cute light up Christmas tree. It has a cool 1950 retro glam feel to it, so it’s ideal for vintage-inspired boutiques who want a Christmas décor look that matches their interior.
It’s not on the traditional list of Christmas decorations, that’s for sure, but as soon as we set eyes on this rose gold penguin from Primark, we were sold on it. It’ll go perfectly in a boutique that already features lots of on trend, elegant rose gold detailing or chic white décor. Place it on a white table for an understated but endlessly stylish look.
Few things in life are as comforting as a lovely scented candle, and Primark has a selection of delicious sounding scents as part of its Christmas drop, including Espresso Martini, Strawberry and Prosecco and the mouth-watering Chocolate Orange. Who wouldn’t want their setting to smell like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange – a treat that is synonymous with Christmas? The candles are just 80p each so you can snap up all three and transform the vibe in your shop on a daily basis.
Festive up your seating area with these cosy little gingerbread cushions. It’s a quick and easy way to add a warming feel to your boutique without having to set up a tree or get up on step ladder to string fairy lights around. These are a cute, affordable touch for a smaller boutique that’s limited on space for massive decorations.
We’ve already touched on how evocative scents are – and if you’re going for gingerbread cushions, you simply must invest in this gorgeous baked gingerbread scented room spray. Spritz it around your store before opening – but make sure you have some gingerbread cookies on-hand to offset any cravings this spray will evoke. It’s a cute festive snack to offer to customers too. At only £3 it’s a total steal.
If you have a larger store, make the smell of freshly baked gingerbread linger by snapping up a couple of these gingerbread scented diffusers to dot around your store. They’re so tempting and affordable – at £3 a time – you’ll find it hard to resist buying a few extra for your home too. There’s nothing like a delicious gingery smell you get you into the festive spirit!
If you don’t want strong scents in your boutique – and that’s fair enough – go for a non-scented candle cosily flickering away. We love these simple glass votives that have fabulously festive lids that you can display next to them. You can get a pretty rose gold one with a Christmas tree on the lid, or a stylish silver one with a reindeer on the top for just £5 – a small price to pay for such a chic item.
If, like us, you’re a candle hoarder and already have hundreds of tea lights and just need a pretty, festive way to display them, you’re going to be super interested in this star-shaped tea light holder which comes in an elegant silver colour and costs £3. Get a few, add LED tea lights and transform your window display.
If your Christmas décor in-store is inspired by a winter wonderland, you need to snap up a few of these Frosted Woodland candles, which have a fresh pine and juniper berry scent. We are huge fans of the rose gold and grey colour palette too. At £3 a time, you can get three for less than a tenner and artfully display them within the store.
Admittedly we’ve gone a little candle-crazy with this festive round up, but nothing says Christmas quite like a beautiful array of candles. These wreath-wrapped candles will look amazing in the middle of a large table – ideal if you have a big, low-down coffee table in store. We love how elegant the silver themed wreath candle is, but it also comes in gorgeous copper tones and with a red berry theme too, so there are a variety to choose from. At £3.50 each they’re a total steal.
Primark are backing the gel candle to make a comeback it seems, and we’re interested! This cinnamon and berry gel candle certainly looks striking and will definitely capture everyone’s attention. It’s a great option if you don’t want to burn candles in store – as it’s too pretty to burn – but you still want something that looks and smells great to add to the atmosphere. At £5, you could buy one to burn and one to display…
Is it a moose or a reindeer? We’re not sure, but either way, we’re into it. This gorgeous rose gold bauble will glam up any display. Buy a couple and mix them into a display of metallic baubles for a chic look. Even if it is a moose, they can be festive too. It’s official.
This adorable mini Christmas tree in red, white and green will suit a rustic winter display perfectly. Get a couple and line them up in your window display for an instant and effortless festive update that is totally Instagrammable.
