They are not very expensive, and they do not have to be for the tree: simple strings of lights can be hung on windows and balconies to give a Christmas atmosphere to the neighborhood and convey a feeling of welcome to your visitors. They can also be hung above the walls, along the shelves, above the doors, or bordering the pictures.
The flashing lights add a magical touch to the decoration and look very beautiful on a dark winter day.

Add Christmas scents

Our sense of smell is very powerful, and Christmas's aroma can help us evoke happy memories and make us feel good.
Assorted decorative wreaths and candles scented with cinnamon, orange, nutmeg, or cloves can be displayed. Christmas cakes and mulled wine with sugar and spices will give your home a welcoming aroma for guests.
There are also Christmas potpourris (dried flowers) that, in addition to decorating, have Christmas aroma.
Hang a collection of Christmas stockings on the mantel or shelf. You can wrap some small empty boxes in Christmas paper and have the packages stick out from the top of the Christmas stocking.
