The very cheap Christmas decorations that look like ones from Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason – so can you tell the difference?

We've compared lookalike baubles costing just a few pounds or less from Poundland, Wilko and Home Bargains to ones from posh shops including Harrods and Fortnum & Mason – so can you tell the difference?

Poundland, Home Bargains and Wilko all sell Christmas decorations from £1 to help shoppers deck their halls on the cheap.

It might surprise some, but many of these discount stores are selling decorations that wouldn't look out of place in a posh magazine.

In fact, many look uncannily similar to ones on sale at places like Harrods, Selfridges and Fortnum & Mason.

With these posh shops selling decorations for up to £995, these stunning ornaments are out of reach for most people.

But there is a way to bag these luxury decorations for far less, as we can reveal.

We've found the decorations on sale at discount shops that will fool your friends into thinking you've been shopping at some of the most exclusive shops in the country.

From hanging pom pom puffs to personalised glass baubles, you'd never be able to tell at a glance that these decorations didn't come from Harrods, Selfridges or Fortnums – and it could save you up to £60.

Of course, the quality may not be quite as good, as often the cheaper lookalikes are made with plastic instead of glass or fake fur.

But with many costing just £1, you could buy several in case the others break easily, and it would still cost far less than buying the more expensive ornaments.

The Sun has asked all high-end brands for comment.

Buying these discount lookalike baubles isn't the only way to save money decorating your home for Christmas this year.

Savvy shoppers have revealed how you can turn your home into a winter wonderland for under £10 by making your own wreaths and buying reduced items.

You could also try selling your old decorations to make some extra cash after a man made £400 by selling vintage 1930s ornaments.

It comes after it was revealed that millennials are swapping traditional decorations for unicorns and flamingos this year.
