If you're in need of some new Christmas decorations this year, save where you can (and get the look for less) in the Amazon Prime Early Access Sale, which ends tonight (Wednesday 12th October) at midnight – if you're not a member, sign up here for a free 30-day trial to take advantage of the exclusive deals.
We've found some great decorations with a range of discounts, up to 35 per cent off, that will help you create an Instagrammable Christmas, even on a budget.
With our roundup below you can tap into some of this year's biggest Christmas trends, from twig Christmas trees, to accessories for mantelscaping, and lots of LED lights (indoors and out) to help you illuminate your home. Oh, and we've thrown in a few gonks too.
A Christmas tree skirt is an essential part of decorating the Christmas tree – hide those tree legs and wires with a covering that will only enhance the look of your tree. This faux fir design is perfect for creating that winter wonderland look.
This red tree skirt lends itself well to more traditional decorating schemes, tapping into a red and gold or red and white theme. It's finished with a double-layered ruffle, bows and pom poms.
One for the mantelpiece or table, up your styling skills with these miniature trees, which will work in every festive setting, guaranteed. The snow effect and wooden base is perfect if you're looking to create a winter village scene.
Of course we've got gonks on the list! A recurring trend this year, there's pretty much a gonk version of anything decor-related for Christmas. These hanging decorations are a cute way to embrace the gonk obsession. Sparingly hang these on your tall Christmas tree, or invest in a small tabletop tree and place these throughout to turn it into your very own gonk tree!
Another one for your perusal, pop these gonks on a shelf, sideboard or mantelpiece for a characterful approach to your Christmas decor. The wooden sleigh adds a welcome rustic touch.
This small light-up tree is perfect for creating some evening ambience. Style this on a sideboard alongside a garland and some strategically placed silver or clear baubles for an Instagram-worthy look.
These lovely hanging Christmas decorations taps into the vintage glamour trend – party sparkle with a vintage note, so think mixed metallics, silver accents and antique decor. We love the teardrop shape and antique silver-effect glass of these baubles.
You can't go wrong with a chic gold and white decorating scheme at Christmas. This bauble set contains a total of 88 pieces in various shapes – ball, elk, candy, gloves, pine nuts, snowflakes, gift box, five-pointed star – to help you coordinate a cohesive colour scheme.
Create a dazzling window display with this trio of star lights. It's guaranteed to bring a magical look to your space and will also shine bright outdoors.
You can't go wrong with fairy lights at Christmas – or all year round for that matter – and this design will help to illuminate your space for the festivities. Whether you drape it from your walls or style it in between shelves, you can create ambience in an instant.
With a timer and memory function, these battery powered fairy lights are so multifunctional that they'll work for just about anything – extra lighting on your tree, entwined in a garland, styled on a mantel, framing a window, and much more.
Briefly turn your attention to outdoors with these icicle lights, which will look perfect draped from your porch or framing your windows.
Will it be a white Christmas this year? Either way, project snowflake patterns onto your home or garden fence with this LED projector light.
Amazon is selling a 6ft tree for less than £40 this Prime Day. This design is crafted with 1,100 tips to create the illusion of a full-bodied tree and is separated into three sections to allow for easy assembling, dismantling, and storing. Other tree deals we've spotted in Amazon's sale includes another 6ft tree but with a slimmer build (now £28.79) and a 5ft tree (now £21.24).
This silver metal frame tree topper is adorned with glittering sequins, making it the ideal finishing touch for your Christmas tree. This battery powered design will emit a soft, subtle glow.
Tabletop trees are perfect for a sideboard, coffee table or desk, and this mini pre-lit design is an easy way to add some festive magic to a room or corner.
Twig trees have been popular alternative trees for a while now, and it works especially well for those who don't want a traditional Christmas tree, or who perhaps want to extend Christmas decor around the home. This 6ft pre-lit design will simply sparkle come evening time.
Christmas tree bags always sell out quickly – everyone has the same idea after New Year and a panic ensues. A strong and durable bag that's big enough to hold all your decorations (so you can keep everything in one place) is ideal. Get this early to avoid disappointment.
Tablescaping is still a big trend this Christmas, so pull out your best tableware for the special occasion, starting with a festive tablecloth. This is a really lovely design depicting deer in the woods and the neutral colourway means it'll work with lots of themes. There's a matching table runner, too.
Speaking of table runners, this red design proves that you don't have to go OTT at Christmas. Sometimes, less is more, and we love its simple design and tassel on either end for an understated yet stylish finish. It's waterproof and stain-proof too.
Candles at Christmas are a must and we're especially fond of this jade green colourway. If you're working with a white and neutral colour palette, it's the perfect hue to add a subtle pop of colour.
Thanks to its green-tinted glass and detachable gold lid, this candle can be styled on your shelf or table for the festive season. With a burn time of 65-75 hours, you'll be transported to a woodsy forest with top notes of bergamot and fir needle leaf, and heart notes of cedarwood, rosemary and pine, completed by fir balsam and musk.
Hang from your fireplace mantel or staircase, these velvet Christmas stockings are decorated with gold sequins, so it'll give a lovely twinkle, especially in the evening as it reflects the light.
Your pets deserve treats too, of course. Pop some festive surprises inside these paw print velvet dog stockings, available as a set, in red and green.
This is a nice set for the whole family to enjoy. Kids especially will love the four characters – snowman, reindeer, bear and Santa. Hang these from the mantelpiece and fill with stocking fillers ahead of the big day.
