Top 10 Trending Christmas Decoration Ideas on TikTok in 2023

‘Tis the season for sprucing up your home for the festive season and what better place to show off your hard work than over on social media? If your ‘for you pages’ are full of Christmas decorations, you might be wondering what the biggest trends are this year and how you can get the look.

As people look to embellish their Xmas decorations and take them to the next level, they find that TikTok is one of the best sources for inspiration. Find here a list of ten trending Christmas decoration ideas on the platform for this year.

1. Bows, Bows, Bows Everywhere

The bows galore for Christmas is here and they're ready to take over not only trees but glassware, table decor, gift wrapping and even using them as hair accessories. Two types of bow aesthetics will be seen this year. The 'clean girl bow aesthetic' shows elegant, lush, and longbows tied around specific Christmas objects to uplift their charm.

On the other hand, there's the 'messy bow aesthetic' which is more vintage, and messier, and is just a more spontaneous way of placing bows of your choice in whichever spaces or decoration objects you like. They look pretty divine placed anywhere and everywhere, making bows one of the top 10 trending Christmas decoration ideas seen on TikTok.


2. Tinsel Christmas Trees Are All In

Many around the world associate Christmas trees draped liberally in shiny silver tinsel with distant memories, perhaps relived once a year by thumbing through fading snapshots in an ancestral photo album. But, with Gen Z officially leaning into gaudy holiday nostalgia, those shimmering centerpieces — which have quietly grown in popularity in recent years — are back in real life.

#tinseltrees (1.4M views) evoke a sense of nostalgia for many people who may have grown up with them or have fond memories of these shiny, metallic decorations. Social media trends often tap into sentimental feelings.

Tinsel trees have a unique and eye-catching aesthetic because their shimmering and reflective surfaces can create visually appealing content, which tends to attract attention on platforms like TikTok.

This type of decoration and trend offers a departure from the traditional green Christmas tree, providing a distinctive and often more modern look. PS: Social media users are often drawn to content that stands out or is unconventional!

6. Japanese Gift Wrapping

For those who are leaning towards having more sustainable practices every day, the Japanese gift-wrapping technique is for you! This wrapping method uses fabric and can be used over and over each year. You can use a square piece of fabric and fold it in each corner, finally securing it with a big knot in the middle. You're free to add hand-made tags created with recycled materials to have a final result that is overall more sustainable than traditional wrapping methods.

7. Paper Decor and Ornaments Will Also Have Strong Presence This Year

Christmas decorations made from paper are often a more planet-friendly alternative to traditional decorations as they're reusable and recyclable. Plus, many paper Christmas decorations can be folded away and reused the following year. If you're into this TikTok trend, take a look at your color palette for Xmas and choose your favorite one to create or buy your paper ornaments. Beige and white are a very natural option that combines with everything.

8. Specialty Wrapping Paper Is a Yes

Specialty wrapping paper for Christmas always takes it up a notch. It's always useful to know what type of paper you want to use according to your decoration and overall Xmas theme and colors. If you're having an all-white holiday then your best bet would be specialty paper in tones of white with silver linings and figures. If you're having a darker Christmas decor with hues of burgundy, you might want to opt for dark green wrapping paper and place huge burgundy bows to finish.

Botanical ornaments, tags, wrapping paper and even accessories to decorate your cushions or living spaces will be a trend for 2023. Think art, pillows, ornaments, and paper with botanicals... yep!
