O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree, how lovely are thy branches
. If you haven’t yet bought your Christmas tree, it’s high time to get a move on! Christmas Day is now less than a full month away (!), and some stockists are already selling out of certain tree sizes (who’d a thunk it). Here are the top places in Hong Kong to secure a Christmas tree, both real and faux.
Christmas Tree Hong Kong
We all know buying Christmas trees in Hong Kong can be a costly affair. Christmas Tree Hong Kong has teamed up with a company in southern Germany to bring premium Nordmann fir trees to the city. The large size measures 150 to 175 centimetres and the extra-large size covers 175 to 210 centimetres, and the best part is, prices start from just $600. They also provide tree stands ($150) and twinkly lights ($80), should you need them.
Drop-off service to Tung Chung, Discovery Bay, and Mui Wo is free, while home delivery across Hong Kong costs $350. The company even donates at least $20 from each tree sale to ImpactHK, a registered NGO that addresses homelessness in Hong Kong. Localiiz readers can enjoy a 25 percent discount off accessories with the code 25OFFLOCALIIZ.

Xmastree Online sources their trees from among the most environmentally-responsible farms in Oregon and Washington. They offer the fragrance-free and shed-resistant Nordmann fir (perfect for families with allergies or sensitivity), the durable Noble fir, and the popular Douglas fir. Delivery for trees is available; you can even book in for their removal service when you buy your tree, so you don’t have any hassle to worry about even after the Christmas season! All their five- to six-foot and seven- to eight-foot trees have been sold out this season, but there are still six- to seven-foot offerings available. Prices start from $1,388.

Van der Bloom
Van der Bloom is presenting a collection of table trees and arrangements to give your home a decadent Christmas vibe. Our favourite is the Christollen, decorated with mintolla, dried fruits, pine cones, and branches, infusing your space with tangerine sweetness. The Mulled Wine version is also lovely, leaning towards antique golden tones and rich claret reds, with hints of cinnamon and that distinctive warm mulled wine scent that is pure Christmas. These gorgeous table trees range from 30 to 50 centimetres, with prices running between $1,280 to $1,780. Van der Bloom also offers Christmas workshops where you can create your own masterpieces.

Florist Gift Flowers has finally stocked Christmas trees, imported all the way from North America. The type they have is Noble fir, which is dark in colour and has a strong woody, slightly sweet scent. The sturdy branches mean they’ll be able to support the weight of most decorations you care to throw at it. Their four- to five-foot and six- to seven-foot fir trees are all sold out, but the five- to six-foot option is still available for $1,479. Gift Flowers even offers free deliveries to the S.A.R.’s metropolitan areas, plus a free tree stand.

Royal Christmas produces high-quality synthetic trees which are modelled after real pines. They’ve paid minute attention to their craft, even making the branches brown in the middle and the needle points a light green for authenticity. Made from PVC and PE material, the trees come in a sturdy storage box, including a steel base, and are flame-retardant for safety. Most also come integrated with LED lights. Prices start from around $423 for a 150-centimetre-tall tree.

This Burgen Spruce Faux Christmas Tree is a good option for those who don’t want the hassle of having to mess with a real tree and the clean-up that comes with it. If you have pets who are likely to lick the tree sap or trek it all over the house, then it’s all the more reason to invest in a synthetic version that will last you through the years. Indigo Living sells these in three sizes, ranging from 150 to 210 centimetres, with prices ranging from $2,290 to $3,990.

This Xmas Doll Tree ($210) is more of a fun ornament than an actual tree, but that doesn’t mean we like it any less! Combining what might arguably be the most Christmas-y symbols, this product features a tree growing out of a Nutcracker doll. At 41 centimetres tall, this would be perfect on your study desk or your table in the office. We recommend admiring it with Tchaikovsky’s ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ playing in the background for maximum festive vibes.
