Shopping for Christmas Decorations at B&M

B&M has been one of my favourite high street stores for Christmas decorations for the last couple of years. I always find that they have a great range of products at really reasonable prices, which makes decorating our home much more affordable each December. My children like to select some new items each year to build on our collection and this year was no exception.

Firstly, we are very lucky to have a large B&M store literally just down the road from us, so this makes visiting the store really easy and convenient. There is also an even larger store in Chester on the retail park, which at only ten minutes drive away, gives us another option for our Christmas decoration shopping.

Our living room is currently decorated in monochrome colours and I always like our decorations to coordinate with our existing colours, so I was determined to purchase some lovely items in black, white and silver. I don't like to spend too much each year on decorations, so we set ourselves a challenge, to see how much we could get for only £20. We ended up being quite suprised!

The first thing we were on the look out for was a brand new star for the top of our tree. We have had our previous one for a few years, but it no longer fitted well to the top of the tree and I remembered saying to my husband last year that we would definitely have to replace it. B&M had a few different stars available, but my children all really liked the look of the Colour Changing LED Snowflake Tree Topper instead. It had a try me button on the bottom left hand corner, so my children all took turns to make sure it worked properly and that they were happy with. We were all very pleased with our new chosen tree topper and at £4.99 we felt that this was great value for money.

Next on my list were some baubles, due to the fact that apart from our personalised baubles that we have added each year, our main selection were relatively old and some were also damaged. We began looking at the wide range available and Ben spotted a large plastic tub that we filled with 40 baubles in black, silver and silver glitter. Perfect! This large bundle of baubles was only £5.99 which is a bargain.

With baubles and a tree topper now chosen, we decided we wanted something a little different to add to the tree, so I gave my youngest son Riley, the task of choosing something that he really liked to go on the tree along with the baubles. It didn't take him long to select a lovely tub of shatterproof Icicle Baubles which contained 18 individual glitter coated icicles for only £1.99. These were perfect for what I had in mind and Riley was very pleased that he was able to choose something different to what we have had before.

Of course a Christmas tree needs some tinsel and although we seem to have accumulated a fair amount over the years, we couldn't resist this 2M 3D Deluxe Tinsel which was only £1.29. It stood out to us because of the added stars and we felt this would help to add even more detail to our tree. Riley also absolutely loves stars so he was adamant that this tinsel could go around the top of the tree and lead up to the LED snowflake.

With the tree decorations all chosen, I told my daughter Emma that I would also like something to go on our bookcase or sideboard. We had a look at a few things as there was plenty of choice, but eventually we settled on these lovely glitter stags. The box contained two of them at a price of £3.99.

With a small amount of money left in our £20 budget, Ben found this sign to go in our window for only £1.49. I loved the silver glitter design, which not only compliments our interior, but also looks lovely in the window to welcome visitors to our home.

Overall we were really pleased with the decorations we purchased, as well as being extremely impressed with the wide range of choice available in store. Decorations were available in all shapes and sizes, in colours to suit all tastes. The prices were really reasonable and I couldn't believe how much we were able to buy with only £20. B&M also stock a large selection of homeware and toys, so it also gave us the opportunity to get some Christmas gift ideas for family and friends. We would definitely recommend a visit to B&M when looking to purchase Christmas decorations or other household goods. They also have a website where you can view some of the other decorations available in store and their Christmas range can be found here: Christmas Decorations
