Whether you love modern elegance or a classic country feel, you can select ornaments for your home that suit your style and fit with the current trends.
Navy blue is a hot color this year in home decor, and it pairs well with virtually interior holiday decorating style. It pops with silver or white decor, for a modern, icy Christmas theme. Or coordinate with gold accent pieces for a contemporary twist of traditional decor.

It's an exciting time for decor because the options are so diverse. Here are 10 must-have Christmas ornaments you'll want in your home this December.

Your tree's base becomes a focal point once the gifts start to appear beneath it, making this selection very important.
