Turn your home into a Christmas grotto this winter

Section: Christmas
Christmas Grotto theme

Christmas is just a few months away, and if you love the festive season just as much as we do, you'll want to create the perfect Christmassy scene in your home that even Santa himself would be proud of!

We've taken some inspiration from some of our favourite mumfluencers including Stacey Solomon and Mrs Hinch to round up our favourite Christmas home decoration buys for you to turn your home into the perfect Christmas grotto, inside and out! 


ad 🎄 Good evening everyone 🤍 im feeling extra Christmassy this evening because we’ve just got home from seeing the beautiful Christmas lights! Ronnie absolutely loves the lights, And I just find myself looking at him looking at the lights if that makes sense 🤣 But as you can see my landing here (aka waiting area 😆) has changed slightly for the month of December! And I absolutely love it! I actually wish it could stay this way forever 🙈 So today was the day for my @veryuk campaign of the month and this months task was CHRISTMAS!! And it’s been my fave one to do yet! If you’ve watched my stories today you’ll see the items I picked to achieve a Christmassy feel and I don’t think it could feel more like Christmas when standing here! So I really think I achieved the goal I was set 😉 🤞🏻 and I hope you all love it as much as I do. Sending you all lots of love and I hope have a wonderful evening (I’ll be spending my evening wrapping again 🎁😄) xxxx 💫 Bannister garlands: @poppybelleflorals Silver vase: EBay Pear: @therangeuk Radiator cover: EBay Curtains: @veryuk Gonk*: @charlestedinteriors Carpets* : @carpetright_uk Christmas tree*: @balsamhilluk Wall prints*: @desenio {*gifted products}

No Christmas grotto is complete without a festive wreath hung upon the door. We love this traditional pine effect wreath that also lights up to give a warm glow as the days get shorter. 

This festive coloured door arch is super easy to put up but provides all the Christmassy party and new year vibes you'll need throughout the month of December. 

Placing wreaths around the house give an instant boost of Christmas around the home and are great for the stairs, mantle piece or even around door frames. We love the warm lights on this one which also come with a timer so you'll never accidentally leave them on. 

Go for a full-on winter wonderland theme with this gorgeous snowflake decorations that can hang all around the home for a real wintery feel. 

Add these temporary stickers to the inside of your windows to give your outdoor decorations a quick and simple boost of Christmas! 

These red and white stripped giant candy canes can be placed around your home or hung off the tree for a bright and fun feel this Christmas. 

These are great to pop under the tree for an added glow of light before any real presents arrive! 

Perch your little Santa, Reindeer and Snowman around the house to add a Christmas feel to every room! They could also provide a bit of company to your Elf on the Shelf! 

If you've not got time to decorate a wreath to go around your front door, this is a brilliant option as it gives that Christmas wow factor with minimal effort. 

Excellent for lighting up your pathway as the days get shorter, these adorable outdoor trees provide a great entrance to your winter wonderland. 

Perfect for giving the windows a frosty feel, spray this artificial snow around the windows to give the illusion that we've been blessed with Christmas snow! 

If you don't fancy clearing up tiny pieces of artificial snow around the home, this light projector is the perfect alternative. It can be used both indoor and outdoor to create the effect of falling snow with zero mess!
