It can often be tempting to go overboard when it comes to buying Christmas decorations with so many on offer. If it’s your first Christmas in your new home and the purse strings are tight, try as best you can to stick to a budget, or agree on 4 or 5 key features to invest in and save the rest for next year. Investing in these core features will ensure family coming home for Christmas will have an amazing time with you.

Top 5 ways to make your house a home this Christmas
