Where To Get Your Christmas Tree & Decorations

So, Christmas is here. Well, almost anyway. But retailers start the season early and it’s impossible to head into a store without being drenched in the holiday spirit. So, we threw on some Santa hats and looked into some places (other than the local grocery store) where you can find a Christmas tree and nifty festive decorations. Just in case you want to start decorating early.

Santa’s Warehouse

If you’re an all-out Christmas nut, you’ll love Santa’s Warehouse. As the name would suggest, it has just about everything your jolly heart could desire. You can visit the actual store or shop online for all of your Christmas needs.

Santa’s Warehouse offers a wide range of trees in a variety of sizes. The selection includes Canadian trees, Kampala trees, Natal Fir trees, Zurich Fir trees and many more. They also ensure you’ll have no trouble decorating your tree or your house. They have all sorts of lighting options – from string lights, rope lights, and solar lights all the way to window lights, 3D lights, and flagpole tree lights. Need we say more? They also offer various baubles and trinkets for all your décor needs. They also offer Christmas themed clothes if you want to take that extra festive step for your Christmas party.

Do yourself a favour and head down to the warehouse or check it out online – you won’t be disappointed.

The CPS Warehouse

For an extensive variety of trees, baubles, crackers, wreaths and much more, check out the CPS Warehouse. Although the physical warehouse is located in Joburg, you can shop online from their website. And if you’re up for a day trip, you can spend some time browsing in person.

You can choose from up to 30 different trees, ranging from traditional to white to light trees – and they’re well worth a look. They also offer a variety of decorative Christmas accessories, ornaments, baubles, glass figurines and probably everything else you can think of. You’ll also find tableware to make that Christmas dinner one to remember. You can also purchase some Christmas dress-up items. Now the only question left is ‘who’s playing Santa at your party?’.

Where: 301 Northlands Decor Park, Newmarket Road, Northriding, Johannesburg
