Once you've decided on your colour scheme, why not make life easy and carry it through to your giftwrap? A red and white theme works for both children and adults.

Choose wrappings in contrasting patterns and eye-catching designs. Bold gingham will complement ditsy prints, while gold and silver work surprisingly well together.

3. Simply enchanting

Mix and match shiny tree baubles with decorations that have a more natural feel. A collection of pretty birds – especially robins – are perfect for setting a seasonal scene.

Keep the scheme stylish yet informal: use everyday items to display your decorations – pile crackers on a cake stand; fill a ceramic dish with baubles. Fresh white blooms add a touch of glamour while fairy lights and candles create a warm glow.

5. Gifts galore

Pick your favourite gifts and wrappings and make a feature of them. Piles of gleaming presents will add to the Christmas magic and help get everyone in the holiday spirit.

6. Add vintage charm

As well as decorating with classic festive items such as greenery, baubles and stockings, include vintage toys, books and pictures for added interest.

7. Pale and interesting

Simple Shaker-style decorations suit this look, as do metallics such as silvered vases, baubles and tealight holders.

8. Cosy it up

Touches of red in appealing accessories and pretty wrapping papers will bring a cheerful Scandinavian feel to a child's bedroom.
