Christmas already seems a long time ago, doesn’t it? We’re all back to work and the days of eating loads, drinking before lunchtime, watching too much TV and then eating some more seem like a distant memory.
Some people are even glad of the fact that Christmas is gone for another year (yes, really!), but we’re not, and we think that now is the perfect time to be planning for 2016. With that in mind, here’s why you should be buying your Christmas tree and decorations right now so you can have a stress-free Xmas 2016.
Get some great Christmas tree deals & offers
Let’s start with the obvious one - saving money. By buying a Christmas tree and your decorations early, you can take advantage of the great deals and offers in the January sales.
Christmas is a strain on the purse strings for many of us, so it makes sense to make the most of sales when they crop up, regardless of how far away Christmas actually is. You can then sit back smugly, safe in the knowledge that come the following Christmas, you’ve got your Xmas tree sorted.

Keep that festive spirit going
If you’re feeling a little glum about Christmas being so far away, then simply refuse to let it go and cling onto every last drop of festive cheer you can. Buy browsing and buying Christmas decorations now, you can live firmly in denial before the next step of the grieving process kicks in. Just be prepared from odd looks from the postman when you’re dressed in full Xmas getup when your new tree is delivered.
Take away the hassle & stress for next year
The buildup to Christmas can be pretty stressful, so it’s best to plan well in advance so you can focus your attention on enjoying yourself and eating everything in sight. This is a pretty important point for big businesses and organisations, such as hotels, that require a substantial amount of planning and actual volume of decorations.
You’ll no doubt have plenty of other responsibilities and festivities to organise, so don’t get caught out and risk what you want being out of stock.
Because you’ve noticed your current Christmas tree is a bit shabby
If your current Christmas tree is looking a bit past its best then throw it away. No messing. Don’t hope and pray that it’ll be OK in 11 months’ time; just do the sensible thing and sling it out. Or rather, see if you can recycle your artificial Christmas tree by contacting the council to see if they have any collections, or you could try upcycling it by turning branches into wreaths or garlands.
If your tree is looking a bit grim, then something like the Green Princess pre-lit fir tree (shown below) will fill that Xmas tree-shaped void in your life perfectly.
If your tree is still looking fabulous, however, then don't just ram it in the loft or it won't be long before it does look past its best. Popping it in a Christmas tree storage bag will keep it look pristine until next year.
