Decorating Your Desk For Christmas

Decorating your Home In Online home office desk for Christmas is a great way to get in the mood for the festivities, not to mention share seasonal cheer with visiting clients.

Whilst it is important that you don’t go overboard if you are expecting a visit from a client this winter, you can still make an effort to transform your current office space into a true holiday hub.


So, if you are looking for a few ideas to get you started, see our list of decoration ideas below.


A festive soundtrack is central to a merry mood in the home office. Not only can it help to lift your spirits, but music is often used to inspire and foster creativity. This makes it ideal for those days you just can’t focus or get those creative juices flowing.


Below we have compiled a couple of soundtrack ideas:

Jingle Bell Rock – Billy Idol

The Little Drummer Boy – David Bowie and Bing Crosby

Do They Know Its Christmas? – Band Aid

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree – Mel & Kim

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus – John Mellencamp

These songs, accompanied by a few of the suggestions below, are sure to get you in a Christmassy mood.


Traditional Decorations

As well as festive audio choices, you also need to consider your visual options. From printed seasonal bunting to festive pen pots, you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to traditional decorations. At the start of your interior overhaul though, why not consider one of the following:


Mini Tree

Putting up a Christmas tree is part of the excitement of this season, so why not implement some small-scale decorating and set up your own mini tree on your home office desk? You can accessorise it with miniature baubles, small strings of tinsel and even fairy lights.



If you don’t fancy a small tree on your desk, you don’t have to throw away the idea of tinsel completely. Wrapping strands of tinsel around your chair or desk legs can really add something special to your office. You could maintain a Christmassy palette throughout the office by using red and green tinsel, or opt for other colours to brighten the place up a little.



Fairy and LED lights are ideal at this time of year. Not only can they add life to an otherwise bare and bleak desk, they are practical too. Working in the winter means a considerable lack of natural light. So, to avoid eye strain, these lights can brighten up the office with a subtle, cosy glow.

Christmas Cards

Instead of popping your Christmas cards on your desk, only to be knocked over later on in the week, why not use your artistic skills to craft something totally unique? A string of Christmas cards hanging from the ceiling or on the wall can make a lovely, personal display. You can even use coloured ribbon to add to the office-wide festive theme.



Do you remember the delightful feeling you had when you saw your stocking had been filled with various sweets and treats on Christmas morning? Well, you can easily recreate that feeling by hanging a couple of stockings on your desk. For those days when you hit a brick wall, having a stash of indulgences by your side can help to remind you that it isn’t all bad.


Festive Technology

Our final desk decoration is something that will instantly make you smile every time you log onto your computer. Setting a festive background on your PC or laptop will help to keep you in tune with the season, whilst banishing stressful thoughts throughout the working day. A snowy penguin scene, twinkling Santa’s grotto or a reindeer-led sleigh all make wonderful backgrounds.


So to keep your home office in the holiday spirit, use these suggestions from Home In Online  and set up a makeshift Christmas on your home office desk this season.
