CONTEMPORARY COLLECTIBLES

2020 Collectibles Gift Set, £60 for set of three, Georg Jensen

Danish design house Georg Jensen collaborates with a different designer each year to produce its annual Christmas Collectibles ornaments. For 2020, Sanne Lund Traberg took inspiration from the Art Nouveau aesthetics captured in flower portraits by the early 20th-century photographer Karl Blossfeldt, and from paper cut out designs based on winter blooms found in her own garden. The resulting ‘ice flower’ motifs feature across the 2020 collection of hanging ornaments, mobiles, table decorations and candle holders. Start, or add to, your collection of Georg Jensen Christmas Collectibles with this three-piece set of baubles in palladium-plated brass and add a touch of contemporary Danish design to your tree.


TRADITIONAL SPLENDOUR

Parterre Black With Poinsettia Bauble, £39 and Lidded Candle, £110, both at Halcyon Days

Halcyon Days’ decorative Christmas pieces will bring a sense of traditional festive cheer into your home. This handcrafted bauble pays homage to the seasonal poinsettia and mistletoe plants, while the matching home candle, encased in hand-painted English fine bone china, will fill your home with a Christmassy cinnamon and orange fragrance.


FRAGRANT TREASURES

Luxury Bauble Collection, £140 for a set of six; Orange Bitters Liquidless Diffuser, £132,
both Jo Malone London

As well as adding a contemporary dazzle to your Christmas tree, each of these graphic hanging ornaments from fragrance house Jo Malone London contains a duo of miniature products, including colognes, scented candles and body wash. Meanwhile, the Orange Bitters Liquidless Diffuser will continue to imbue your home with aromas of sweet orange, sensual sandalwood and amber long after the tree has come down. It will release scent for up to three months and its sleek marble-effect holder and black reeds will make a stylish addition to your mantlepiece for the winter season.


TEMPTING TREATS
