Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la la la la la!
With less than a month to go until Christmas, it’s finally an acceptable time to decorate our homes with all the festive bling and stockings we can get our hands on. With this in mind, we’ve done our window shopping to find you the best stores to pick up trees, trinkets, and more to help you celebrate the season in style.
Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree
If you’ve got your heart set on a real Christmas tree with all the trimmings, then Indigo Living has a range of Burger Spruces ranging from 150cm to 210cm in height to fit into your flat. While these might not be the cheapest trunks on the market – they start from a whopping $2,290 – the fact that the store will arrange home delivery ay swing it. After all, who wants to lug half a forest home on their shoulders? The store also offers a selection of beautiful tree decorations and lights so you can get the job done in one fell swoop.
Le D’or Fleuristes
This Wan Chai-based store offers a gorgeous selection of real Christmas trees in various sizes, ranging from $1,250 to $3,530, and 4 foot to 9 foot in height. Again, while these might not be the cheapest trees around, the home delivery service (available for around $200 if you live on Hong Kong Island and $300 for Kowloon) makes it a convenient option. The store also sells real and artificial wreaths (starting from $580) and traditional festive decorations, which are sure to add a touch of class to your home this season.
Le D’or Fleuristes, G/F, 132 Queen’s Road East, Wan Chai, (+852) 2111 8951
With an overwhelming range of “feel-real” artificial trees on offer, which come in all shapes, sizes, and colours, Overstock is a great place to find whatever greenery you’re looking for while staying within budget. To give you an idea of the price range, the tallest tree towers at 16 foot and comes in at $36k, while the smallest stands at a humble 18 inches and costs $94. You can find all the garlands, centre-pieces, lights, and trinkets you need on here too, for a bargain buck.
The Lion Rock Press
For adorable festive decorations with a Hong Kong twist, then look no further than The Lion Rock Press. Its Christmas range features a selection of hanging decorations based on iconic Hong Kong objects, such as the sampans, the Star Ferry, Chinese lanterns, and dumplings (priced $100 to $120 each). You can also buy a box of four decorations (pictured) for $350.
From artificial, but realistic, Christmas trees to sparkling baubles and diamond encrusted figurines, Next Direct has got you covered this season. Its Christmas at Home range offers an array of beautiful trinkets starting from as little as $19, which can be delivered within three to four working days after ordering online. And with free delivery when you spend over $200, that’s a very tempting offer.
From scented candles and sparkling baubles, to cosy cushions and cute stockings, the home section of H&M’s flagship store in Causeway Bay is an Aladdin’s cave of festive treats with bargain price tags. The shop also has an excellent range of stocking filler gifts that are sure to put a smile on the face of whoever you drew from the Secret Santa hat.
If you want to make Christmas really personal, then Etsy offers a selection of adorable, and affordable, personalised tree ornaments, stockings, hangings, and knick-knacks to make the season extra special. As well as selling wreaths, door hangings, and general holiday decor, the online store also has a range of artificial, pre-decorated trees on sale.
Marks & Spencer
You can always count on M&S to add a touch of class to your humble abode. While the shop doesn’t sell actual trees, it does offer some beautiful baubles and hanging decorations to dress it with, in different themes. Whether you want to scatter some cute woodland animals on your spruce, or some iconic London buses and phone boxes, this is the place to find it. Keep an eye out in store and online for the festive wreaths and garlands, plus the adorable cushions and twinkling lights.
The Typo range of knick-knacks at Cotton On are cheap and certainly cheerful. What could be more fun than hanging a pug and a sloth on your Christmas tree? The store’s range of novelty ornaments are perfect if you’re on a budget too, coming it at only $20 a pop. With free delivery on orders over $300, and a 30 percent off sale currently on offer, it’s as if all your Christmasses have come at once!
