Is there anything more festive than cracking out the decorations, putting up the tree and literally decking the halls? We think not! It’s time to crank the AC, pour a cup of hot chocolate (in a festive mug of course) while Michael Bublé serenades you with whimsical tunes.
The scene is set and the universal Christmas tree ‘putting up’ date is already upon us. But the one thing we’re lacking? A beauty-filled haul of decorations. Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but what if it was literally scattered upon our trees? We’re here to give you tips to find the best beauty baubles to grace your tree this Christmas…
TAN-LUXE Super Glow Bauble Set
Gift a golden glow from a sweet glimmering orb. By simply massaging a few of these hyaluronic-infused serum drops into your face and chest daily, you’ll start to see a stunning shift towards a glowing complexion.
$30 at Sephora
OPI Nail Treatment Mini Ornament - Nail Envy Original & Start-to-Finish
With all the wrapping (and unwrapping) of presents you’re about to be doing, you’re going to want super strong nails. So who knows how long this bauble will hang on the tree for before you open it up to slather on OPI’s strengthening treatment… Of course, you’ll be finishing with a lick of glossy top coat before heading back to decorating.
$21.95 at Adore Beauty
L'Occitane Holiday Cherry Ornament
We’ve been asking ‘pretty please with a cherry on top’ for a decoration that’s not only stunning but also full of travel-sized mini must-haves. And with all our oh-so-polite asking, we have finally gotten our wish. A quick helping hand of nourishing hand cream when you walk past your dazzling tree will have your hands looking the best they ever have come Christmas day. And once you're ready to pull it apart for good, enjoy the soft cherry blossom scent all over your body thanks to a hydrating shower gel and body lotion.

Charlotte’s Magic Trio Of Trinkets
What’s more magic than one gilded ornament? Three, of course! This trio of truly magical trinkets has your lips, lashes and skin all looked after. There is no guarantee how long these are set to last on the tree though!
$85 at Charlotte Tilbury
Palm Beach Collection Sunset Bellini Hanging Bauble Hand Lotion
Not sure about you, but to us a citrusy cocktail at sunset screams summer. And while we like a summertime cocktail, we love healthy hydrated hands. We personally don’t see why the two are mutually exclusive, so meet the melding of worlds… the Palm Beach Sunset Bellini Hand Lotion. Not only is it an ultra-cute bright decoration, but it’ll have your hands healthy and smelling divine.
$14.95 at Myer
Glasshouse Fragrances A Tahaa Affair Candle Bauble
A little mini candle is as cute as can be. The sweet smell of this candle will be drifting out from the equally-sweet pyramid hanging from your tree. Fresh pine tree and vanilla are a match made in heaven and your senses will be seriously thanking you for the seasonally-appropritate aroma.
$18.95 at Look Fantastic
SLIP Scrunchie Ornament
Slip out of the hold that tangled tresses have on you with these simple kink-free scrunchies. Decoratively stacked within the pyramid are four multi-coloured silk scrunchies. Slip has earnt its cult status for leaving your strands creaseless even after being scrunched up in a bun all day, so these are an absolute must-try (and by that we mean a ‘must have on your tree’).
$32 at Sephora
Benefit The North Pore
While we may be dreaming of visiting the North Pole (hot chocolates and reindeers anyone?), we think we’ll settle for being visited by the North Pore. Benefit’s latest creatively-named Christmas bundle will not only sit in a pride of place on your tree but leave your skin enviably blurred to pore-fection.
$35 at Myer
Ultra Violette Spritz Me Quick
This bright retro-inspired boxy bauble comes packed with some of the brand’s very bests, including a nourishing lip balm that will have your lips ready for mistletoe season along with a handy sunscreen mist. Because topping up your sunscreen is as important as making sure your makeup looks good all day!
*Always make sure to follow directions, stay out of direct sunlight and make sure you’re covered up.
$27 at Adore Beauty
Skinstitut Be Bright Bauble
Honestly, we’re not even sure this one will be making it to the tree. We’re ready to crack open the code to flawless skin now. With three products to help you cleanse, scrub, renew and repair your skin, by the time Christmas rolls around people will be asking for your secret!
