Christmas Guide: Tree Decorations

November 17, 2021 2 min read

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas’s that time of year again! Time to prop up that tree and decorate it in festive goodness for everyone to enjoy. Here at For The Love of The North, we stock a wide range of beautiful holiday decorations - all designed and created by local artists of course, and with this fabulous season upon us we thought it’d be a good idea to share with you our best ones. 

Starting with our Snow Globe Hanging Decorations - these were designed by our very own in-house illustrator, Laura Burnett. We loved working with Laura on these intricate wooden decorations and they are the perfect tribute to a classic Northern Christmas. Featuring local monuments such as Lindisfarne Castle, Spanish City, Tynemouth Priory, Sycamore Gap, St Mary’s Lighthouse, Penshaw Monument, Tyne Bridge and, of course, The Angel of The North! 


Next (and one of my personal favourites) is our Christmas Bauble Cross Stitch Kit. When this time of year comes around, I always think of arts and crafts so why not make stitch your own baubles - it definitely adds that personal touch! These adorable hanging decorations feature our favourite coastal spots throughout Whitley Bay and Cullercoats. (They might even make the perfect gift!)

You all probably know by now that sustainability is a huge thing for us here at FTLOTN, which is why we’re so big on wooden ornaments...well, that and they look magnificent. Our huge range of wooden decorations are all designed and laser cut up North and showcases our favourite landmarks like Bamburgh Castle, Tyne Bridge and even our beloved Spanish City. 

If you have a home filled with children or pets that every so often enjoy picking decorations off the tree (or if you’re like my pets, destroying the tree all together) you might want to invest in some soft yet durable decorations. We have a lovely range of felt decorations which are both lightweight and soft - perfect for family chaos.

Our Wor Angel figures are always so popular but this festive season get ready to see it sporting a little Santa hat! The perfect way to pay homage to the North East is by proudly hanging this Wor Christmas Angel Bauble for all to see on your tree this December. 

Handmade is always our go to and nothing gives that personal touch more than our handmade Seaglass Heart Ornament - each heart is handmade just for you with seaglass washed up on our very own Whitley Bay beach.Choose the colour you like best and delight in something completely unique. 

And there you have it, the best festive decorations we have here at For The Love of The North. Make sure to check out the rest of our merry goodies and have yourself a canny Christmas!

I did have plans to go away this weekend but Covid put a stop to that.  The girls Dad has it and so can’t look after the girls while I’m gone.  I am disappointed and could have really done with some downtime but it just reminds me just how lucky we are to live on this beautiful coastline.  I go away on my own for a multitude of reasons, mainly I think I need time on my own to recharge.
