We totally forgive you for not thinking it’s coming towards ‘that’ time of year again. We skipped into the office today in a summer dress and sunglasses! But, it’s happening, Christmas IS coming (if you need some convincing pop into M&S this afternoon and sing along to the Crimbo tunes!) and we all know what that means; presents, champagne, parties and Christmas trees! A Christmas tree is guaranteed to make your home or office feel more Christmassy and quite frankly, the festive season doesn’t officially begin until you hang your first bauble.
Here at Sassy we believe your homes and office should be as fabulous as you are, so we’ve found the best places for you to buy your Christmas trees here in Hong Kong. Happy tinsel-ling…
Sofie’s is a Sassy favourite for real Christmas trees at an affordable price. Choose from Nobel, Fraser or Douglas firs ranging from 4-10ft that cost anywhere between $550 – $2,365… what a steal!

Simply fill out an order form here – we would highly recommend it if you’re looking for the real deal at a reasonable cost!

Good old Ikea hey, love it or hate it, you can rely on it to provide you with plenty of Christmas cheer (and if that’s not what you are looking for just head straight to the pick ‘n’ mix candy at the end!). Choose from either a 4’-5’ or 6’-7’ real Scandinavian Fir (which are grown in sustainable eco-environments), all at well under $1,000. They also offer some artificial trees in-store.
A great choice if you are looking for artificial trees to avoid any mess and hassle (and that you can re-use every year). Prices are super low and decorations are plentiful.
