Luckily, Black Friday is here to help bring your dream decorations into budget, with some incredible sales on baubles, garlands, candles and more available across some of our favorite luxury brands.
Black Friday luxury Christmas decorations sales
We’ve brought together some of our favorite Black Friday deals on luxury Christmas decorations to help you make your holiday season affordably fabulous.
1. Dazzle with delicate crystal baubles
When it comes to Christmas tree ideas, nothing says ‘luxury’ like hand-blown crystal baubles. Reflecting your Christmas lights around the room, these enviable ornaments add elegance and excitement to simple schemes, appearing like giant glinting snowflakes when chosen in a clear white colorway. For a touch of festive warmth, the Waterford Lismore Bell Cranberry Ornament from Macy's tints the crystal with a pale berry red.

An elegant Christmas ornament from the crystal masters, this functioning bell is a delightful addition to contemporary and classic trees. Macy’s is offering discounts across the Waterford Artisan Signed 2021 Collection this Black Friday.
2. Go for gold with a metallic wreath
Make the three kings proud and lavish your guests with gold decor this Christmas. Set the tone for seasonal luxury from the moment they arrive at the door with gilded Christmas wreath ideas, like this Gisela Graham Fern Leaf Christmas Wreath in Matt Gold from Amara. A simple design elevated by the use of metallics to signify the special occasion, you can carry on the look indoors by adding the matching garland too.

This chic, contemporary wreath design will add a glimmer of sophistication to your festive front door. Amara is currently running Black Friday deals across a variety of Gisela Graham Christmas decorations.
3. Fill the home with luxury festive scents
Of course, it’s not just aesthetics that make Christmas decor feel luxurious. Filling your home with wintry scents by lighting your best candles is a great way to create an immersively Christmassy feel. Choose candles that smell as good as they look and vice versa – this Cire Trudon Christmas Gabriel Candle from Saks Fifth Avenue contains notes of leather, cashmere wood, and candied chestnuts, and features a beautiful green and gold holder.
Cire Trudon Christmas Gabriel Candle | Was $135, now $114.75, Saks Fifth Avenue
A warming blend of glace chestnut, cedarwood, musk and leather, this candle from Trudon’s Christmas collection is a sophisticated take on festive home fragrance. Saks Fifth Avenue is offering a free $75 gift card when you spend $150 on or before Black Friday too.
4. Give Santa a prime spot on the Christmas tree
He is the man of the moment, so getting Santa Claus involved in your festive decor is always a good idea – especially if you suspect you might be on the naughty list. To make his presence feel sophisticated rather than kitsch, choose to celebrate him through vintage-style glass decorations, like this Santa in Sleigh Glass Ornament from Bloomingdale’s, and combine nostalgia with quality.
Bloomingdale's Santa in Sleigh Glass Ornament | Was $52, now $31.20, Bloomingdale's
Bloomingdale’s is offering Black Friday discounts across the entire Santa's Favorites Holiday Ornament range, which is available exclusively at the department store. That means you can pair this jolly fellow with a Faberge-style egg, a dancing nutcracker, or his doppelganger carrying a sack of presents.
5. Make your guests feel cozy with seasonal cushions
Christmas decor doesn’t have to stop at the tree – integrating festive flourishes into unexpected places spreads holiday cheer throughout the whole house. Consider bringing out the seasonal soft furnishes to make your guests feel comfy and cozy and in the spirit of things. This subtly festive Jan Constantine Fir Wreath ‘Joy’ Pillow in Cream from Amara works wonderfully well with an array of neutral blankets and throws.
Jan Constantine Fir Wreath Pillow - Cream - Joy | Was $173, now $138, Amara
Want to bring joy to the world (and your living room)? This Jan Constantine wool cushion features a hand embroidered fir wreath motif, as well as blanket-stitched edges and sequin lettering.
6. Add a touch of glamor with pearls
For a chic Christmas, look beyond the tinsel and the fairy lights and into the world of fashion. Pearl-encrusted decorations are a great way to add unexpected glamor to your holiday decor, and work really well in both neutral schemes or as pale accents among richly colored Christmas tree themes. These Joanna Buchanan Pearl Tassel Christmas Tree Decoration in Cream from Amara go all out with a flow of faux pearls, falling from a jewel-filled crown.
Joanna Buchanan Pearl Tassel Christmas Tree Decoration - Cream | Was $52, now $41.60, Amara
Chains of faux pearls hang like a tassel from this jewel-encrusted tree decoration, paired with red and green for a traditional holiday look. Hanging from a velvet ribbon, it’s also available at Amara in grey and pink colorways.
7. Deck the halls with elaborate garlands
If you really want to get your Christmas fireplace ideas feeling merry and bright, fill your mantel with the most elaborate garland you can find. It’s unlikely you’ll have the fire burning all day, so continue the feeling of warmth with this Balsam Hill Gilded Leaf Magnolia Pre Lit Artificial Garland from Nordstrom, which features built-in lights, gold leaves throughout and an overall realistic look (without the pine needle droppage). Pre-lit garlands are also great for staircases and decking bare hallway walls.
Balsam Hill Gilded Leaf Magnolia Pre Lit Artificial Garland | Was $229, now $169, Nordstrom
Jazz up your festive mantel with this 6ft pre-lit garland from Balsam Hill. With a realistic look that is sure to fool your guests, its artificial nature means you can use it year after year.
8. Modernize festive favorites with a gold and silver palette
Santa Claus, Rudolph, an army of elves – these festive characters are perennial favorites, but their bright red and green garb may not fit in with your home decor. If you’re keen to stick to a monochromatic color scheme, choose decorations that reimagine these fellows in gold and silver. This Michael Aram Nutcracker Ornament from Bloomingdale’s dresses up the magical maestro in a metallic outfit, and is available alongside a silver reindeer, a white and gold angel and Santa masquerading as the moon.
Michael Aram Nutcracker Ornament | Was $70, now $52.50, Bloomingdale's
The Nutcracker always did look rather smart, but he’s positively dashing in the high-shine suit Michael Aram has dressed him in here. The 5-inch statuette is nickel plated and hand painted in a glitter finish.
9. Pack your decorations with patterns
Maximalism has been one of the biggest trends of the last year, so why not have a pattern-clashing Christmas? Filling your festive decor with bold motifs is a great way to get on trend and creating eye-catching moments throughout your home. This Mackenzie-Childs Tartan Bauble Set from Amara mixes black and white chequerboards with tartan, repeating Christmas trees, and squiggling loops in red and green.
Mackenzie-Childs Tartan Bauble, Set of 6 | Was $137, now $116, Amara
Make a punk rock statement with these bold and brilliant Christmas tree baubles from Mackenzie-Childs. The glass decorations are not only hand made, but hand painted too.
10. Go all out with a 16 foot Christmas tree
Now, if you want a Christmas that feels really luxurious, bigger is always better. If you’re lucky enough to have a double height space in your home, there is simply no better way to fill it over the festive season than with a colossal Christmas tree. This National Tree Company Feel Real Downswept Douglas Fir Hinged Tree with Dual Color LED Lights from Bloomingdale’s clocks in at a staggering 16 feet. Luckily, it’s pre-lit so you don’t need to worry about getting the fairy lights all the way to the top.
National Tree Company Feel Real Downswept Douglas Fir Hinged Tree with Dual Color LED Lights | Was $14,370, now $7,165, Bloomingdale's
For all out luxury, this 16ft tree is the ultimate addition to your festive decor. While it may cost a little more than a stocking filler, Bloomingdale’s is currently offering it at an amazing 50% off. The department store is also cutting the prices of a host of National Tree Company trees, so there are cheaper options available too.
I started out at British GQ, where a month of work experience turned into 18 months of working on all sorts of projects, writing about everything from motorsport to interiors, and helping to put together the GQ Food & Drink Awards. I then spent three years at the Evening Standard on the GO London team, covering restaurants and bars, and getting to eat and drink a veritable smorgasbord of wonderful things around the city. I left the paper in 2020 and went freelance, writing about food, drink and homes for publications including Conde Nast Traveller, Luxury London and Departures.
