The festive season is always an exciting time of year and the build-up is one of the best parts. The planning and buying of gifts, holiday food and drinks and preparing the house. This year, of course, it’s going to be a little different for us all. But even though the whooping parties and turkey dinners for dozens may be on pause for a while, there are so many other ways to create the magic by gathering the family and celebrating at home to create memories that you will all cherish for life.

Your living room is the heart of the home all year, but during the festivities even more so. It’s where most of us place the tree but gone are the days when a bit of tinsel and a few mismatched baubles would suffice. Your tree is now an extension of your personal style. It’s the foundation of your festive "look" that you can carry through to so many other areas of the house. You could even refresh your space with larger pieces of furniture that take your interiors in a new direction even when the tree comes down in the New Year.

If you have a mind to bring on the glamour to give your normally pared-back interior a sparkly alter ego, Home Centre has just the thing with the season’s classiest colour combination for your festive interior. Pink, gold and all things furry and feathery are the hallmarks of a thoroughly edgy festive look. It’s not the colour palette you’d perhaps think make the perfect pairing, but if you fancy a total switch-up for your tree, you’ll maybe gain a few Instagram followers into the bargain because this is a look you’re going to want to show off!

You can easily carry this ultra-glam look and create a casual, yet stunning impact by grouping together decorations starting from just Dh5 in different shapes, textures and sizes to bring out the sparkle in each individual piece.

Bring out the dazzle at your family dinner too, with crockery and glassware starting from Dh9, glittering gold charger plates, a statement centrepiece and why not rock a few reindeers around the table for good measure?

But, in a year like no other, for solid traditionalists nothing really says Santa’s on his way than a comfortable, luxurious interior look, that instantly transports back to festive seasons past. From cushions starting from Dh79 to gorgeous garlands and bounteous berries running riot over every surface, Home Centre has gone all out to help you conjure up a timeless, traditional décor too.

And what about the other room that’s the mainstay of the festive season: your kitchen? It’s going to be the place where you’re doing all the cooking, and this is an ideal way to enlist your own littler helpers into the preparations.

With bakeware products starting from Dh5, we’ve all you need to make festive baking a breeze and remember, festive cookies aren’t just for Santa! After an afternoon spent in the kitchen, there’s nothing better than cuddling up to your fave seasonal family flick with hot cocoa and a freshly baked cookie.
