Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

23 November, 2010

I’m so excited about Christmas this year. I’m using the excuse that it’s my daughter’s first Christmas so we have to make it extra special, but seeing as she will only be two months old, I’ll come clean and say that it’s really me that wants to go all out! I’ve already bought my first packet of lebkuchen, and paid a visit to various stores to check out their Christmas decoration selection so that I can decide on my theme (I’m a traditionalist so that means whether I’m going red, red and green, or red, green and gold!). The most exciting part of all the preparations though is the tree. For those of you who don’t know, in Hong Kong, the easiest place to get a Christmas tree is actually at Ikea. They aren’t in the actual store, so it’s easy to miss, but you can order and pay for one at the counter, and they’ll deliver it to your home. You need to get in there quick to avoid disappointment though, as I was told they’re selling out fast.

If you don’t manage to get in there with ordering your tree from Ikea, the alternative is always the Mongkok Flower Market. You’ll need to ask for delivery and negotiate a price though as you won’t want to be carrying your tree on the MTR!

For Christmas decorations, you can’t beat the prices in Sham Shui Po. Check out our article from last year about where to find the best places!
