15 Christmas tree baubles that have absolutely nothing to do with Christmas

Trust us – they are everywhere.

If you thought your Christmas tree had to be decorated with shiny baubles, stars, tinsel and all things festive, think again.

A quick look on the Great British high street proves that if you want your Christmas tree to be more tree than Christmas, there are some decidedly unfestive decorations out there.

Pandas are adorable, but this little guy is crying out for a tiny Christmas hat to get him in the festive spirit.

Arguably the least Christmassy of all the fruits – even with the added glitter.

Not the kind of red hat you traditionally associate with Christmas, but it would certainly be a talking point over your festive turkey.
