10 Kmart Christmas decorations that are elegant and affordable

Stylish, affordable and fun.

Wandering through Kmart is always a risky move – will you emerge with a single item, or ten things you didn’t even know you needed? It’s especially true at Christmas time, when the shelves are stocked with the highly anticipated range of Kmart Christmas decorations that somehow manage to be on-trend, magical and surprisingly affordable.

This year, traditional red and green accessories really steal the show with scalloped placemats and crimson linen-look tablecloths available. Walk through the aisles or browse online and you’ll be hard pressed not to add something to your Christmas collection. Here, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best pieces of Christmas decor from Kmart that are elegant, affordable and a little bit fun.

Best Kmart Christmas decorations


4 Christmas tree gin balloon glasses


Gin is a popular yuletide tipple. And what better way to enjoy it than in a whimsical (and generously-sized) glass with a Christmas tree base? 


2 pack wavy edge placemats


Scallop-edged placemats are such a hot trend. Bring the trend to the Christmas table without spending a fortune with these fun yet understated Kmart placemats. There’s also a matching ‘Merry merry table runner’ available for $10.


Red and pink linear serving bowl


Sticking with a traditional red colour scheme this year? Add a touch of modernity with this coloured glass bowl with linear, ribbed detailing. It’s great for adding dimension to the table – it’s always best to lay the table with vessels of different heights for maximum style impact.


6 pack Christmas luxury bon bons in gold


Ok so there are Kmart’s regular bon bons (starting from $2 for a pack of 4) and then there are Kmart’s premium bon bons. The premium bon bons come in two elegant colours (red or gold) and included in the pack are somewhat useful prizes such as: metal tweezers, bottle opener, carabiner, keyring and more. Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes each bon bon does contain a dad joke and a paper crown.


Christmas eve reversible quilt cover set (single)


Get the kids into the Christmas spirit by making their beds with festive linen. This whimsical design can be styled two ways: on one side there are snowy Christmas scenes feat Santa and his reindeers, and on the other, a deep red with lots of little tiny wrapped presents. Oh, it really is the most wonderful time of the year. 


3-piece Christmas snowflake decoration


Paper decorations are severely underrated. Not convinced? Check out interior designer Anna Spiro’s Christmas tree, which she decked out fans made from recycled wallpaper. You can use them to decorate your tree, hang them from a staircase rail or even use them in place of a traditional front door wreath. They’re also a great child-friendly and pet-friendly option too.


1m Christmas pom poms tree skirt


A multi-coloured tree skirt fringed with pom poms is just what you need to create a joyful, Christmas atmosphere. Colourful Christmas decorations are all the rage right now, so have fun breaking out of the traditional red and green mould and go bold!


Pet cave Christmas tree


Let’s not forget the pets! Include them in the festivities by temporarily upgrading their sleeping spot with this cosy and comfy ‘cave’ shaped like a Christmas tree. Or, if your cat is obsessed with boxes, try the Gingerbread house-themed Christmas cat scratcher instead.

If you want your Christmas tree to have a sparkly, magical glow to it, then investing in decorations that catch the light and create lustre is essential. One way to do this is with glass baubles, or, if you’re concerned about pets or kids causing chaos, these iridescent snowflakes work too!
