Deck the halls with boughs of holly, falalalalalalalalaaaaaaa!
Evening :)
Firstly, are you liking my new Christmassy blog design?? Or have i gone a bit overboard haha?

I hadn't thought about doing a Christmas decoration/prep haul until i saw Louise from Sprinkle Of Glitter do a video about hers, then it seemed like a no brainer idea! 
Be warned, this is a monster of a post! I'd get a cup of tea and a biccy before you browse through this baby!!

Poundland first!
I got this glittery, gold Christmas tree decoration for my bedroom, it sheds glitter like a mo-fo, but for £1 you can't go wrong! 

For £1 i think this is really good! We've strung it round the tree, and it adds just a pop of gold to it, and the cute little stars really add something :) 

 I also got these Christmas garlands for the ceiling, some people might it weird that we hang decorations on the ceiling haha but we always have! These are really good for £1 and really jazz up the room :)

Sellotape, because we need it to wrap up presents, simples!

These cute, battery powered lights are perfect for our living room window, there's not many of them so i just sellotaped them over the top half of the window, to light up the sign i've hung in the window (which i'll show you next), they take 2 AA batteries and this is great for us because at Christmas we never have enough plugs to go around for lights!

These cute little Christmas scene window plaques, they have little suckers on them and you just wet the sucker and stick it to the window, nice and easy!

 What would Christmas be without some Christmassy scented candles?! 
Mulled Wine is just gorgeous, not too boozy, smells quite fruity and spicy :) and Warm Apple Pie doesn't smell very apple-y, it's more of a spicey, creamy scent.

I've never had a Christmas mug before, so this excites me more than it should! haha.
It's really cute and if you follow me on Instagram you will have already seen a picture of me drinking from it :)

Gel stickers for our windows! These look super cute on the window, but they feel really weird and jelly-like when you're sticking them up, like ectoplasm!! haha.

And some Revels, because i can never resist the cheap chocolate in Poundland, why do they put them so near the till?! to tempt me :(

Now onto Primark, i only bought a couple of things from there;
Finally picked up one of these hair turbans in a festive red, not exactly Christmas prep but i thought i'd throw it in here anyway, it doesn't really absorb the water in my hair but it's still very handy to use when you have a deep conditioner in your hair :)

These lovely fairy lights from Primark were a steal at £3! They're round our tree and they look gorgeous and really tie in with the multicoloured theme we have going on :)

Now Wilkinsons! You still with me?!
I got this gorgeous wrapping paper for £1 for 10 sheets (used to be about 69p, inflation ey!), i buy this wrapping paper every year from Wilkinsons, and it always lasts such a long time, plus you don't have to find a place to store a massive roll of wrapping paper, win win! 

 I got these 4 metre strips of tinsel for £1 each too, you can get tinsel in Poundland as well but that is only 2 metre strips, sometimes you have to shop around because Poundland can try and rip you off at times! 

Another ceiling decoration! A small, holographic Christmas tree, because i can't resist anything sparkly!
This was £1 also.

This banner is for our hallway, it's not very well made so be careful when you open it that you don't rip it haha but once it's up it looks spiffing :)

This slate grey star garland is perfect for hanging on a door, because doors need to be festive too! haha.

Now onto Tesco, they had some brilliant stuff!
A silver star for one top of the tree, because our star was getting a bit worse for wear! This was around the £1.50 mark.

These three glittery Christmas trees were 36p!! They're not the best made decorations but for 36p they add some much needed sparkle to a tree so who cares?!

How cute is heee? 
His name is Ronnie, and he's got to be one of my favourite decorations i've bought this year! He was only 76p!

Candy canes, is there a cheerier sight in the world?
These aren't real ones, but they add a pop of colour and i loves them :)
They were also 76p.

Now onto the beautiful Paperchase!
 My lovely boyfriend bought me this tinsel tree, it was £8.50 and is perfect for adding some festivities to my bedroom! It doesn't come with the green and red tinsel i've wrapped round it though.

 These are my Christmas cards for this year! I always get them from Paperchase because they do the cutest designs, they do 3 for 2 on their cards and also 60p from every pack goes to a certain charity, because giving is what this seasons all about after all! These were £3.50 each, but as i said it was 3 for 2 :)

And finally, Sainsbury's! If you're still with me, then you're a trooper!!
As i said before, our tree is multi-coloured, so these brighten it up no end! It was 1/3 off all the Christmas decorations so these were around £2.40 :) 

Once again, multi-coloured decorations! these are gorgeous and i'd definitely recommend buying them, they look so fun on the tree :) These were around £1.30.

No-one does tacky quite like me ;) haha.
These two purple glittery reindeer are amazing i think! and they were only £1!!

This picture really doesn't pick up how gorgeous and sparkly this decoration is! It's one of my faves, it's so well made and only cost £1!

And the last decoration was this beautiful gold...partridge? I'm really not sure what kind of bird it is, if you know tell me in the comments haha! This was around £1.20.

And that's that!!
This was the final result;
If you reached the end then you're my hero! haha.
Merry Christmas shopping everyone!!
