Wake up to endless Christmas magic and spread some holiday cheer in your bedroom. Adorn it with festive decorations that add warmth and charm to your pretty little nook. As early as now, you can give your own private space an ultimate holiday makeover to create a cozier and happier vibe while waiting for Christmas. 

We’ve been busy decking our living rooms and porches with Christmas trees, garlands, and glittering lights. Even our kitchen gets spruced up with seasonal dishware and Santa mugs for a holiday-appropriate look. However, we often skip decorating our bedroom even if it’s where we spend our precious amount of time to recharge and unwind after a stressful day. It’s also the place where we curl up in bed while binge-watching our favorite Hallmark movies, secretly wrap our Christmas gifts for the kids, and fantasize about the delicious Noche Buena feast! So why not dress it up for the occasion?

Spice your Bedroom for the Holidays

Breathe life into your boring bedroom by transforming it into something merry and bright—at least, for this season of joy. Swap out your usual bedding for something that has festive pops of red and green, throw in accent pillows, hang a beautiful wreath or a mistletoe, and if the space permits, set up a miniature Christmas tree. Don’t forget to drape your headboard in garland with twinkle lights! What better way to start and end the day than with this dreamy slice of Christmas paradise.

In this list, we will be sharing with you some tips on how to decorate your bedroom for Christmas to help you get in the holiday spirit! We think that our Christmas decor ideas should not just be limited to the public spaces in our homes, so here are some fun ways to add a holiday touch to your personal sanctuary:

Your gloomy bedroom could use a little greenery during the holiday season to achieve a lush look. Wrapping a faux evergreen garland around your headboard will do the trick. You can even include some twinkling fairy lights that illuminate the room. A warm holiday glow will give a Christmassy starry night ambience as you lie on your bed. There’s just something about falling asleep to these sparkly lights that makes the moment feel magical, right? Hanging a pretty wreath with pine cones, colorful ribbons, stockings, or other Christmas ornaments above your bed is beautiful. It will also set a festive mood for the holidays. 


Nothing says Christmas like a good old Christmas tree. And this traditional Christmas symbol does not have to be confined to the living room—it’s also a perfect bedroom decoration! If you have a small space, you can opt for a miniature version that fits nicely in your room. Depending on your style, you can keep it simple with a minimalist evergreen tree or embellish it with tinsel and balls for a glam look. Choose the ornaments that will complement the color palette of your bedroom. Another alternative for the full-size tree is a tabletop Christmas tree placed on your dresser or coffee table. You can also hang a wall tree made from garlands, string lights or tree branches to save space. 


Turn your room into a warm and cozy holiday haven. It is by getting a Christmas-themed duvet set that can transport you to winter wonderland or Santa’s workshop at bedtime. Make sure that your bed is dressed to impress for the merry season. You can start with adorable prints and designs. It can be a traditional red tartan pattern, Santa Claus and reindeer. You can also have nutcracker soldiers, snowmen, candy canes, poinsettias, and many more. In choosing cute seasonal sheets, you can incorporate the colors of Christmas.

The season’s colors are red and green. This will add some holiday vibe to your room. If you’re not a big fan of bright colors, pick a Christmas bedding style with subtle hues instead. Changing your bed linen with something festive will surely make you want to snuggle down. Adding more fun to it with a cup of hot chocolate and marshmallows. Subsequently, you can watch your favorite Christmas movie or listen to your go-to Yuletide playlist.

Make your bed look extra comfy and homey by grabbing some throw pillows that will fit your holiday style. Consider what suits the color palette and theme that you like for your bedroom. This is in order not to overdo the décor. Red, green or plaid throw pillows can instantly transform your bed into something Christmassy. This is possible even if you want to stick with your neutral-colored comforter. There’s a wide assortment of decorative pillows with Christmas motifs. There are figurines that you can place on the bed or chair in your room. These can be elves, snowflakes, Christmas trees, jingle bells, etc. Add a chunky knit throw or a blanket to complete the holiday look.

Wreaths are usually seen in the front door of our homes to create a welcoming touch that will instantly give holiday cheer to your guests. However, you can also deck each of the bedroom doors in your house with a nice wreath to bring a little festive magic to the personal space of every member of the family. This quintessential piece of holiday decor can also be hung in other areas of the bedroom such as above the bed, over the mirror (perfect spot for you to take IG-worthy holiday mirror selfies!), in the windows, or other unconventional places.

Wreaths are versatile decorations – you can go for a bare wreath for a minimalist look, the traditional one with pine cones and berries, snow-covered wreath to blend with your winter wonderland theme, or other unique designs. If you have time and materials, you can show your own creativity by making a DIY Christmas wreath together with the children for a fun holiday activity at home. Add string lights to make it more beautiful!

Maximize your wall space by hanging some cute Christmas wall art or signage. Think of transforming your bedroom into a mini gallery of Christmas-themed elements showcased through wooden signs, festive photographs, hand-painted holiday quotes or song lyrics, and other decorations. Why not take this opportunity to flaunt the kids’ Christmas artworks in their own bedroom wall? Or frame your favorite holiday pictures with the family—the ones where you’re all wearing those matchy-matchy Christmas PJs? Funny Christmas puns (e.g. “Resting Grinch face, “I’m feelin’ pine,” “Let’s take an elfie,” “Sleigh queen, sleigh,” “Rebel without a Claus,” “Love at frost sight,” etc.) are very much welcome too!

Show your bedside dresser some Christmas love by adorning it with seasonal decor like a tabletop tree, scented Christmas candles, or a stack of holiday books. You can also place a couple of colorful and sparkly Christmas ornaments in glass containers for added festive flair. Another way of dressing up your coffee table is by displaying framed pictures of your family and friends from the previous Christmases (or you can hang Polaroid pictures on strings with cute pins and add some twinkle lights). Working from home since the pandemic started? Why not turn your mini home office into something festive and nice by adding some Christmas decorations in your work station like a miniature tree or some simple ornaments on your desk. Seeing these holiday adornments can surely pump you up on busy work days.

No fireplace or mantelpiece in your home? No problem. You can still hang your Christmas stockings in other parts of the house like your bedroom! Many of us grew up believing that jolly old Saint Nicholas would fill our large socks with some treats and mini presents on Christmas Eve. This fun Christmas stocking tradition brings so much excitement for the whole family, especially the kids who are looking forward to unwrapping their gifts on Christmas mornings. You can hang the stockings in the windows, on your bed, on your shelves, on bedroom door knobs, and more. How about having customized Christmas stockings for everyone in the fam? Making your own stocking to add some personality in your holiday decor also sounds like a good idea.

Perhaps you’re halfway done decorating your home with dazzling ornaments, but it won’t be complete without the wonderful aroma of Christmas. Set a joyous mood in your bedroom by displaying a couple of enchanting Christmas candles that come in different shapes, colors, and sizes. Pair the holiday candles with creative accessories that will give your bedroom a peaceful yet festive aura and a comforting Christmas glow.

Purchase the ones that don’t just look good but smell good as well. Not only will they add warmth and intimacy to your place, the seasonal scents can also evoke a whiff of nostalgic memories and Christmas cheer—so choose a fragrance that reminds you of the happiest time of the year! (e.g. apple cinnamon, mountain pine, baked gingerbread cookies, pumpkin, cedarwood, berries, and more). Fill your bedroom with the relaxing holiday aroma of scented candles that will soothe your senses and create a cozy ambience—perfect for blissful mornings spent reading novels while sporting your favorite Santa sweater and pajamas.


Now that you’ve successfully made your bedroom smell like Christmas, it’s time to use some music to complement the festive atmosphere. If you have a vinyl collection, you can put your holiday records on display, and these will definitely make a great addition to your Christmas decor. Listen to the Christmas tunes of Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra while setting up the tree or wrapping gifts if you’re feeling a bit sentimental. Not a vinyl enthusiast? No worries, you can simply turn on the radio or play Christmas songs on loop through Spotify, and sing along to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and Wham!’s “Last Christmas.” These classic holiday anthems, along with other popular hits, will surely jazz up your holiday spirit!


Planning to ditch the seasonal decor in your charming little home? Think again. Recreating a fancy Christmas haven in your condo bedroom can be quite challenging because of the limited space, but it is very doable with a little creativity, proper planning, and thinking outside the box. Downsizing and other space-saving techniques can spell the difference in making your private spot feel merry without cluttering your home.
