Branch out

Make a grand statement with your ambient lighting with this iron twig effect candelabra for pillar candles. Dh367, Crate and Barrel, Mall of the Emirates and Mirdif City Centre

Silver lining

The elaborate metalwork on this oriental-style lantern makes for beautiful plays of shadow and light. Place it in the centre of your table for maximum effect. Dh325, Luz de Luna, Umm Suqeim Road, Dubai

Berry brights

The berry design and frosted glass of this Sagaform tea light lantern means they make a stylish, contemporary festive decoration. Dh79 for a set of two, Kollektion and Co at Ordning and Reda, Ibn Battuta Mall and DIFC, Dubai

Soft petal

We like the earthy green colour of this rose-shaped holder. Good if you're working with a natural inspired decor palette. Dh95, Zara Home

Rock solid

There's something neolithic about this stone tea light holder from Luz de Luna. We love its raw simplicity. Dh100, Luz de Luna, Umm Suqeim Road, Dubai

Hang together

You could use this mini bird cage as a tea light holder or hang a few (without the candle) on your Christmas tree as pretty decorations. Dh99, Zara Home
