Merry Christmas! Well, almost, but who said we can't start decorating now?
From Jose Mari Chan references to malls getting decked out with decor as early as September, it's a no-brainer that Filipinos just love the Christmas season.
With the holidays now fast approaching (sorry, Halloween!), it may be high time to get in on the wave and start planning the centerpiece of holiday home decor: The Christmas tree. Whether you're more of a minimalist designer or planning to go all-out this year, it doesn't hurt to check out the options as early as now.
Here are some online shops already selling Christmas trees—fresh or otherwise.
Online store RE Vert PH is selling Fresh Abies Nobilis Pine trees that are arriving in the Philippines from Holland. Their first batch will be available for delivery as early as Oct. 30.
These fresh pine tress will come in seven different sizes, with prices as follows:
- 30cm (1ft) - P2,500
- 40cm - P2,950
- 50cm - P4,300
- 60cm (2ft) - P5,950
- 80cm - P14,500
- 100cm - P19,500

They also offer other holiday ornaments such as tabletop candles and Christmas wreaths for P5,500 / 50cm and P4,500 / 30cm. You can already reserve the pine trees and other decors on Re Vert's Instagram page here.
Online home decor store Decore2Adore is also offering ready-made Christmas trees that fit every home and any budget, as their shortest trees start at 5ft (cheapest at P2,500) up until 20ft.
Their offerings range from Needle Pine Hook, Gold plastic trees, to Garland Hook types. They also started selling as early as Oct. 16 to make sure you don't get caught up in the Christmas rush.

If you're up for a more local way to decorate for the holidays, Mandaluyong-based produce store Homegrown Organics is selling eco-friendly, real, and rooted Christmas tree plants for the low price of P495.
The tree plant stands at about 8 to 12 inches and is ideal for gifting since it comes potted and wrapped with ribbons.
It's also an economic alternative for those that want to support local while keeping their decorations minimalist. Check out the listing on their website for further information.
