Add some winter cheer to your walls with this cheery print. It has a minimalist, retro vibe that celebrates Christmas without feeling cutesy or over the top. And it’s reversible! Flip the print over when summer comes along for a bright floral print. The 12-inch by 16-inch piece comes unframed on glossy cardstock.
Swap traditional red velvet Christmas stockings out for more of a farmhouse aesthetic with these fringed burlap alternatives. Hang them up exactly as they come, or add names with fabric paint or embroidery floss. The neutral white and beige color combo means they’ll look good no matter what color palette you have in your home.
This festive candle does double duty, making your home look and smell-ready for the holidays. The woodsy aroma evokes a Christmas tree thanks to notes of fir, cedarwood, balsam, patchouli and pepper. The soy wax will burn for about 90 hours, and the wooden wick crackles as it flickers. Once you’ve used up the candle, upcycle the pretty textured glass jar into a vase or storage container.
A tarnished gold patina makes this metal garland look like it comes straight from the North Pole. Even the sound of the jingle bells (yes, they really ring!) feels rustic and antique. The jute rope is a little over six feet long, and loops on each end make it easy to string along the mantle or hang straight down a door frame.
It can be tough to incorporate Christmas characters into your decor without looking cheesy, but this doormat does it perfectly. The simple, minimalist image is cute, seasonal and still totally stylish. Plus, it’s actually super functional — a layer of coir on top of the doormat helps scrape off shoes, while vinyl backing keeps it from sliding around. Choose from five different size options.
Skip the tinsel and go for an elegant, natural look with this olive leaf wreath. It features lush silk leaves interspersed with faux olives layered around a base made of actual twigs. Fluff out the leaves, and it looks surprisingly realistic. If you still want a little bit of sparkle, thread some tiny fairy lights throughout. This version has a 17-inch diameter, and there’s also a larger 22-inch version.
Give a subtle nod to the holidays with this set of handcrafted velvet trees made in a small Wisconsin artisan studio. They’ll look pretty on your mantle, as a centerpiece or basically anywhere else you have space in your home. The set includes three trees ranging in size from 6.5 inches to 13 inches tall. Get them all in the same color, or mix and match between the 18 different options.
We love cute little touches like this ceramic cactus inspired by the vintage classic design. Plug it in, and the little rainbow Christmas bulbs actually light up! The same style in a bunch of other types of succulents are also available, including aloe, agave, echeveria and a ball cactus. Sounds like an adorable holiday garden to us!
An adult man once hailed as a child prodigy in China has decided to depend on his parents and live his entire life without a regular job. Rise of the “prodigy”: Born in 1995, Zhang Xinyang first gained acclaim as the “little prodigy” when he was 2.5 years old for being able to read over 2,000 Chinese characters. At age 5, Zhang was enrolled in a primary school but was bumped to second grade in less than a month.
So much for Pep Guardiola’s insistence at the start of the season that Manchester City are heading to their fourth successive title. After a comprehensive defeat by a magnificent Aston Villa, his side have slumped to fourth place in the table, six points behind the leaders Arsenal. Here’s how much they are drifting off the pace: Manchester United – a side who have spent much of the season serving up fodder for comedy writers – are now only three points behind them.

In Nir Oz, a kibbutz on the Gaza border, they are still sifting through the ashes to find body parts of people killed in the Hamas attack on 7 October. On both sides of a metal fence that was supposed to keep the two sides apart, they are still living their nightmares.
Yang Guang's rise from a village farmer to an Audi-driving businessman with two properties hinged largely on one of the most coveted documents in China: an urban hukou, or residency permit. The 45-year-old who lives in the central city of Zhengzhou likens the permit - which typically ties a person's access to health, education, loans and other services to their birthplace - to a "cattle ear-tag the state clipped us with". When Zhengzhou in the early 2000s temporarily allowed those who bought an apartment to also qualify for a city hukou, Yang seized the opportunity, allowing him to register a business and open stores across Henan province's capital, transforming his fortunes.
Chinese warships have docked for the first time at Cambodia’s Ream Naval Base, which is undergoing a Chinese-funded upgrade that has drawn concerns from the United States over its potential role in expanding China’s overseas military footprint.
