How To Save Your Business Money This Christmas
It’s no secret that Christmas can be an expensive time for many of us. We have to buy presents, food, Christmas tree decorations and whatever else we feel we need to have a stellar festive period. However, Christmas can also be an incredibly costly time for businesses. If not correctly budgeted for, or taken into account, then it can be a bit of a shock to the bank balance. At Christmas Tree World, we’ve put together some of the ways your business can save money this Christmas without sacrificing any of the yuletide festivities for you and your employees.

Invest in an artificial Christmas tree

While some prefer having a real Christmas tree, it’s not always practical. Investing in an artificial Christmas tree is a wise move for various reasons. Not only do they look just as good as the real thing, but with a faux realistic Christmas tree, you don’t have to worry about it dying or disposing of it in January. You can simply pack it away until next year - this means that once you’ve bought a tree, you don’t have to shell-out again year after year. It’s a one-off expense that will serve you for many Christmases to come, whether you opt for a half Christmas tree in the corner of an office or a tree for a shop window display. If you want something truly spectacular, take a look at our amazing commercial Christmas trees, which are ideal for indoor or outdoor businesses and events. The 7ft Arbor Ultima Christmas Tree

Choose LED Christmas lights

If you’re going to be decorating your premises with lights this Christmas, then opting for LEDs is a wise move for several reasons. Multi function LED Christmas tree lights use much less energy than regular bulbs, which will help cut down on your electricity bills. They also last much longer, so you literally won’t have to replace them for years. You also won’t have to worry about finding out that a bulb has blown, causing the whole set of lights to fail - we’ve all been there! Take a look at our full range of Christmas tree lights.

Book festivities early

If you’re planning any kind of Christmas party, then it pays to get it all booked in early. Venues are going to ramp their prices up towards the festive season anyway, but if you leave it to the last minute to book something, then you’re likely to pay even more. If you’re not too precious about when you actually have your Xmas bash, you could even bring it forward before the busy party season or leave it until after Christmas, when you’re less likely to have to fight for elbow room at the bar.

Be more eco-friendly

How much do you pay attention to how eco-friendly your business is over Christmas? By thinking a bit greener, you can also save yourself some money! If you work for a company that either shuts down or reduces staff numbers over Christmas, then there are plenty of energy-saving measures you can undertake to reduce the impact on the environment and on your overheads. The most obvious thing you can do is turn off lights and shut-down unnecessary equipment that’s not in use. You should also consider turning the heating down if no-one is around to need it on. Knocking the thermostat down by just 1ºC can reduce energy consumption by up to 8%. It all adds up! You may even decide to let people work from home over Christmas, which will make life easier for them and also cut down on your costs.
