The trend for decorating our homes, beyond simply dressing the tree, is one that grows bigger with every year. With Christmas themed cushions now playing a major role in our festive decor.
Cushions are the simplest way to add decoration to a living room just for Christmas. Plus cushions are easy to swap in and swap out once the holidays are over, adding festive cheer at very little cost.

The best Christmas cushions for 2022
Be inspired by our pick of this year's best Christmas cushions, to give your home an instant makeover for seasonal festivities. And the way this year is shaping up we'd be tempted to plump for putting these out on display now!
1. Next Soft Velour Pom Edge Cushion
When less is more. This Christmas cushion is made from an exquisitely soft velour fabric with a tactile pop-pom edging. It's the perfect cushion to snuggle with on cold winter evenings. The Merry Christmas embroidery is elegantly understated, yet enough to signal yuletide greetings.

2. Dunelm Mr and Mrs Claus Cushion
This charming cushion features traditionally felt appliqué images of Mr and Mrs Claus. The layered felt detail feel very Scandi, with the use of multiple colours helping to make it feel contemporary. The pom-pom trim on the hats and shows adds a playful touch to the sweet cushion design. The overall cushion is made from a super soft fleece-feel material, making it extremely tactile and snuggly.

4. Matalan Christmas Dachshund Cushion
This cute cushion design has two key ingredients we love here at Ideal Home – puns and adorable pooches!
The Santa-hat-wearing dachshund is carrying a sprig of mistletoe in his mouth, whilst wearing a festive pet jumper. The fun writing reads ‘Daaaachshing Through The Snow' to complete the design.
