With only three sleeps to go until Christmas, children are getting more excited than ever to discover the gifts which Santa has left under the tree.

It becomes the focal point for so many family celebrations – so we asked our readers to send in photographs of their Christmas tree, and we have selected our favourite eight to share with you all.

From high design to chaotic individuality, these images capture the care and creativity devoted to designing this traditional festive centre-piece, whether it's pretty in pink or a quirky snowman.

Among the countless glittering baubles and twinkling fairy lights, we hope you agree that there are some fine ideas here on what you can do to dress up a humble fir tree ready for its big day.
