The 5 Prettiest Robin Decorations in 2023

We know that Christmas Day is on its way when we start to see the tell-tale signs in nature; nights get longer, the ground gets frosty, plants go to sleep in preparation for a new year of blooming… But one thing that we all look forward to is the more frequent appearance of the beautiful European robin, whose numbers in the UK swell as our robins stay local and many others migrate here to avoid the harsher winters of the Baltic states. These birds, with their many legends and symbolic meanings, hold a special place in the hearts of many which makes them very popular in Christmas displays across the country. 

At The Olde Christmas Shoppe, we are never short of robin decorations for the tree and the mantlepiece, and so we have compiled this handy list of our top 5 favourite robin decorations for your Christmas tree this year to give you the best décor and gift inspiration!

Why We Love This Decoration

This lovely traditional tree decoration is one of the most consistently popular amongst our range, and is often bought as a gift to someone special. The classic pillar postbox topped with snow is in itself an iconic emblem of the British Christmas season which brings to mind the excitement and anticipation of posting your Christmas cards and letter to Santa Claus the good old fashioned way, as well as complimenting most other decorations with its fetching festive red. This is enough to make this one of our favourite all-time decorations, and the tiny brown and red robin sitting atop the postbox is a sweet addition to this nostalgic piece!
