Gone are the days when paper snowflakes, scraps of tinsel and handed-down baubles were brought down in a cardboard box from the attic. A far cry from the papier-mâché baby Jesuses from our childhood days, today's novelty baubles cover every subject from donuts and unicorns to robots and even plates of sushi.
Now Harrods has introduced six new ranges to the mix, coveringTown & Country, Jet Set, Femme Fatale, Tudor Rose, Kids and Punk Princess. This last range is their edgy and glamorous rock 'n' roll take on Christmas, featuring a host ofplayful and contemporary decorations includingstudded skulls, spiky baubles, electric guitars and glitter lips.
Our highlights? Gene Simmons-inspired skull decorations by Tinker Tailor and Jan Constantine’s sequin Bowie-boot cushion.
You won’t be leaving these to get dusty in the attic any time soon…
