Okay, I know it’s not a traditional time of year to be shopping for Christmas accessories but right now is precisely the best time of year to purchase a new Christmas tree. And that’s exactly what I’ve done this week! Yes, my brand new Christmas tree was delivered yesterday and I’m so pleased with the bargain prices available at this time of year that I just had to share it these deals with you.
If you’re looking for something a bit special, or have been lusting after a tree that is totally out of your price range, try taking a look a specialist retailer’s website this January where great discounts are available at this time of year. I checked out Christmas Tree World and couldn’t believe how much prices have been slashed after Christmas – now my dream Christmas tree was available at a price I could actually afford so I snapped it up and it arrived by courier delivery soon after.
In fact, it turns out that I’m not the only one who has been searching for a bargain; when I choose my new tree I found out that January is actually Christmas Tree World’s busiest time of year, which must be down to all the fabulous discounts available online. That and the fact that there’s probably a tree for everyone’s taste; from space-saving slim trees and bushy pre-lit firs to realistic woodland pines and iridescent white tinsel trees, there was a money-saving deal to be had on every style of artificial tree. This company also offers a no-quibble 10 year guarantee on their trees, so the quality is clearly fantastic!
I’d had my eye on this super-realistic Mountain Pine tree for a while and began to think about investing in it for two reasons: my old artificial tree was just too small for the room, and I’d been admiring real trees in friend’s homes throughout the whole festive season. So much so that I was determined that we would have a real tree next year despite the fact that I’m always disappointed by the longevity of real trees (I’ve had some that didn’t last until Christmas day…), and that they make such a mess when the needles drop. After much thought this, coupled with the fact that I’d have to spend most of my Christmas budget on a tree if I wanted a decent size spruce, led me back to the idea of an artificial tree.
Thank goodness that I now have the best of both worlds. I have an artificial tree that actually looks like real mountain pine tree! Even though I don’t want to unpack it from the box at the moment, I did open it up to check that the contents matched the description and I am already SO pleased with the two-tone colour and bushy texture of the branches. This tree was available in 9 sizes from 4ft to 14ft and it found myself measuring the space available in our living room to get the biggest tree possible for next Christmas! In the end I saved about £80 off the pre-Christmas price of this tree and I am so pleased with my bargain that I really can’t wait for December to be able to show it off!
What you think about buying your new Christmas tree in January? Do you think it’s a good money-saving idea? Let me know if you too have snapped up some new Christmas decorations this year by leaving me a comment below.
