Christmas is the most celebrated holiday in many parts of the world. In the Philippines, people start to decorate for Christmas in as early as September. Traditionally, a decorative Christmas tree can be seen in every home and establishments. Let me share more about Christmas tree price and designs.
I started decorating for Christmas at home when I was single. Now that I am already married with two kids, it makes me more excited in preparing for Christmas. Of course, we always have a decorative Christmas tree. Where to buy and what is the Christmas tree price and designs?
If you live in Metro Manila and really want cheap price, you may go to Divisoria and Dapitan. The price of a 6 ft. Christmas tree there ranges from Php600 to 1, 300 depending on the type or designs. Uniwide sales is also a haven for the lowest bargain.
If you do not have enough time to buy at shopping centers, you may buy your Christmas tree online. My brother did it two years ago when he bought a 6 ft. Christmas tree from cashcashpinoy.com. The price is P1,200. Currently, there are still available Christmas tree for sale online. I suggest you to search in google for Christmas tree online deals. You can visit metrodeal, ensogo, groupon, cashcashpinoy, and other online stores that have an ongoing promo and deals. The risk in buying online is that you really can’t distinguish the quality of the Christmas tree before you buy. The advantage is less-hassle for travel and shopping time because you do not have to engage yourself in traffic when buying.
At the mall, they also have Christmas tree and other decorations for sale but expect the price at a higher cost. I canvass for a 6-ft. Christmas tree and the mall price cost from Php 2,800 to Php6,000 depending on the type or style of Christmas tree. I noticed that White Christmas tree is cheaper compared to the green Christmas tree. Obviously, it is because most people here prefer a green one. It is the traditional Christmas tree and compared to the white, the green tree is not prone to discoloration when you re-use it again for several years. Now, which do you think is the perfect Christmas tree in the long run? Green Christmas tree or White?
In the photo above, the Christmas tree pictures are captured from Handy Man at The District in Imus Cavite. Can you guess which design we picked? If you are my follower in Instagram, you will know which Christmas tree I chose. We bought the 6-ft. pine-needle green Christmas tree at the price of P2,800 + less 20% off discount. The decorative flowers cost at about P30 each, Christmas balls set at P100-P400 depending on style and size, and the LED Christmas lights cost at P399. For a 6-ft. Christmas tree, you need two Christmas lights to make it glow brighter.
The outcome is beautiful. My eldest son and hubby helped me in building and decorating the Christmas tree. My little girl was so amazed when she saw the Christmas tree with the Christmas lights on. This marks the very first Christmas tree of my family here in Cavite.
How about you? What’s your Christmas tree story?
