There’s no better way to get the Holiday spirit started than to begin decorating! Even as early as September, Christmas ornaments can already be seen strung around houses in every street.
If you want to get a head start on decorating as well, here are some awesome places to scavenge for beautiful decors while staying on budget as well:
- Malls, Tiangges, and Bazaar
The Yuletide season brings great sales, pop up booths, and stalls in malls’ activity centers along with it. While some can still be a bit pricy, there are surely great deals as well if you look hard enough!
Looking for a sure-hit one stop shop for your décor needs? Then Divisoria’s got your back with a wide but affordable array of choices! From garlands and lights to Christmas trees and lanterns, you’ll definitely have a difficult time choosing from everything that this place has to offer. Just be sure to check and double check their quality. You wouldn’t want to save and get a steal, only to realize that what you bought isn’t functioning – or worse, is actually a safety hazard!
- Sidewalk vendors
Share the Christmas spirit with those who need it more. You wouldn’t just be buying gorgeous handcrafted decors, but you’re also supporting the livelihood of those who really need it. You might even be funding their Noche Buena for every purchase made! How cool and heartwarming is that? Definitely a win-win situation.
- Arts and Craft stores
If you would rather spend on gifts and food, you can always unleash your inner creative and Do-It-Yourself! Visit your nearest craft and hardware store and hoard art materials you can use. Aside from being able to save much, it can also be a great conversation starter and subject to talk about during events. Not everyone can say that they had enough patience to build a Parol (Christmas Lantern) from scratch all by themselves, right?
It’s always breathtaking to see the colorful and lively decors during the festivities, and since this is one season when you can be as extra as you want, don’t be afraid to go all the way! As long as you stay on budget, then there’s nothing to worry about – except maybe where to stock all of these after all the celebrations, maybe?
