1. Matt white pyramid bauble
This modern matt white pyramid bauble reminds me of the style of some of the contemporary pendant lights.
It’s a really effective piece and would look fantastic hung on a Christmas tree.
The white pyramid bauble is £10 from Heal’s.
2. Deer Christmas ball bauble
Add a contemporary touch to your Christmas tree, with this deer design bauble.
The cream coloured earthenware Christmas tree ball bauble is decorated with a black silhouette of a deer on one side, with a small silhouette on the other side.
This unusual bauble is £11 from AIGA.
3. Starburst round bauble
This unusual round bauble is called Starburst for a good reason!
The silvery white special bauble would make a great addition to your tree and costs £5 from John Lewis.
4. Origami polar bear Christmas tree decoration
This cute little polar bear isn’t made from paper, as the origami part of its name suggests. In fact, it’s carved to produce the origami look, which is very effective.
The white bear has a small hanger on the top of its back with ribbon strung through for hanging. It would be special piece to bring out for Christmas and treasure year after year.
The carved origami bear costs £12 from the V&A Shop.

Even if we aren’t blessed with a white Christmas, this pretty beaded snowflake decoration can add a wintery touch to your Christmas tree.
The beaded snowflake hanging decoration is £5 from Graham and Green.
6.Round crackle glass bauble
You can’t beat a good glass bauble and if it’s got a crackle effect, then it’s even better.
These clear glass round crackle baubles are available in a choice of two sizes. The small bauble is £2 and the large £3.50 and they’re sold by Lombok.
7. Felt feather tree decoration
I’ll be honest, I thought this was a leaf when I first saw it, but leaf or feather, it’s a dainty piece to add to your Christmas tree.
Made from silvery white felt, the decoration has a lovely stitched effect running through it and, if you love the handmade look, this would be perfect.
The felt feather decoration is £4 from the V&A Shop.
8. Sparkly star tree decoration
Every Christmas tree needs a star and this one has just the right amount of sparkle.
The five pointed three dimensional star is sprinkled with glitter to make it sparkle under your Christmas tree lights.

9. Frosted silver hanging hearts
This pair of frosted silver hanging heart decorations are made from glass and hang from a contrasting velvet ribbon.
They’re a bit vintagey in style, but would look lovely used alongside contemporary decorations for an eclectic mix.
The pair of frosted silver hanging hearts cost £10 from Cox and Cox.

In addition to all the gorgeous, one-off special baubles, every tree needs a good set of baubles to use to fill in the gaps year after year.
