TREE has brought out these cute little Santas ($75–$95) handcrafted from tin, each holding musical instruments for an extra touch of festive cheer. There’s also a Snowman ($75–125) made from canvas and metal that would be perfect for styling a winter tablescape. These accessories could also be perfect party favours for guests to take home if you’re planning on hosting the ultimate Christmas party.
If you haven’t got the space for a proper tree, not to worry, because TREE also has fun-sized Terracotta Trees ($395–$595). Handcrafted in the Philippines, this collection comes in an array of designs, ranging from circular cut-outs to scattered star motifs. Eco-friendly and chic, what’s not to like?
TREE, locations vary
Every Hong Kong shopper worth their salt knows about Carousell and the thousands of items available for purchase on the site. Their sellers base hasn’t disappointed this Christmas season, and we particularly like Yolin Online Shop’s Christmas Night Nanoblocks Set ($138) for the fun you’ll have assembling it in the first place—we also have a soft spot for 8-bit anything. You could also add to your Sonny Angel collection with Lovely Toys’ Sonny Angel Reindeer ($90) for a kitschy touch to the festivities.
The Lion Rock Press
We’ve always loved The Lion Rock Press for their quirky Hong Kong-themed products and come Christmastime, it’s no different. Give your Christmas tree a local flair with the Hong Kong Hanging Decorations ($100–$350). This collection is so popular that they have been expanded for the fifth year running, and now includes the Star Ferry, a steamer full of baos, a bowl of wonton noodles, a vintage green tram, and more. Singaporeans living here will be glad to know that the Lion City is also being represented with decorative baubles featuring the city’s iconic shophouses, a bamboo-handled kettle, and an old-school tiffin.

Here’s one for the yogis out there: Francfranc’s Xmas Yoga Santa ($60 each) decorations. Santa sure is nimble for an old man, contorting himself effortlessly into yoga poses such as the Tree, the Bow, and the Warrior. Also, we might not be storming Area 51 any more, but there’s no denying that space was a huge theme of 2019. Pay tribute by decking out your tree with the Ornament Astronaut ($84), Set Ornament Space ($104), and Glass Ornament Rocket ($84).

Goods of Desire always has products that make us laugh. We love their decorative string of lights in the shapes of Red Lanterns ($228) that look exactly like the ones you see hanging in Hong Kong’s wet market stalls. They’ve also got a festive ‘Hohoho Joy’ Cushion ($278) featuring a candy cane and Santa Claus print with a Cantonese pun. Dot these products around your home and let your party guests have a little laugh when they spot them.

MoMA Design Store
MoMa Design Store has brought out a range of rotary candle holders and we particularly like the Christmas Tree ($88) version; light a little votive candle at the base and watch as the rising hot air makes the contraption spin the decorative trees around. You’ll get some atmospheric lighting and Christmas tree silhouettes drifting around your walls at the same time. These are also available in silver tree and snowman designs. Alternatively, express your whimsical side with the St. Nicholas Ornaments ($128 each), which come in styles including Alice in Wonderland, Van Gogh, and Monet!

Add a hint of British royalty to your Christmas tree with Indigo Living’s ornaments. The crowned dog versions this year are particularly evocative of Queen Liz. Yes, of course, there’s one of a Corgi ($189)—he even has a little crown on his head! Get the matching Crowned Dachshund Ornament ($149) and West Highland Terrier Decoration ($149) as well to keep him company. Alternatively, set the elegant Topiary Berries in Pot ($849) out beside your front door for some festive cheer even outside the house!

This unique Polar Bear End Table ($2,480) from Tequila Kola is sure to be a hit with all your adult and children guests. After all, who wouldn’t love a Christmas-y little polar bear holding up a plank of wood that you can rest your party drinks and nibbles on? The table is made from hand-painted polyresin, so each piece is slightly different. They also come in penguin and flamingo designs, but the polar version absolutely has our hearts!

Get your very own Elf ($380) based on the book The Elf on the Shelf.
According to the story, the elf receives a dose of Christmas magic when a family adopts it and names it, and every night it will fly to the North Point to tell Santa all about the family and their adventures. Each morning it returns home and perches in a different location. The little ones will have lots of festive fun tracking down their elf scout each day. Will your elfin buddy report back to Santa with stories of how you have been good?
