Christmas is the most wonderful time of year, but you don’t need to spend a fortune or usher in a truckload of plastic-laden ornaments to fill your home with cheer and merriment – if you shop at Big W. That’s because this year, over half of Big W’s Christmas collection is priced at $5 or below and 25% of the core seasonal range was designed with zero plastic (save for the glue and adhesive tape). They’ve even made sure that all of their decorations are 100% glitter free. 

John Loader, head of commercial, everyday and celebrations at Big W says the team wanted to make Christmas special for every Australian family. “This year our Christmas collections offer trend-led pieces at great value.”

Big W’s Christmas Decorating Themes

This year, there are four Christmas styles to choose from:

  • Classic refresh: An Australian twist on classic Christmas decorating
  • Seasonal simplicity: For those who love a timeless Christmas decor scheme, featuring earthy tones and wooden ornaments
  • Nordic Yuletide: A collection featuring grey, copper and white tones
  • Mystical Merriment: Jewel tones, enchanting and whimsical ornaments the whole family will love.

Our top picks from Big W’s Christmas collection

Pre lit Christmas tree

01

02

No beautifully-decorated Christmas tree is complete without a tree topper. This classic star makes just the right impact, and at just $12 is a complete steal!

03
