A few handy options for buying and delivering that all important festive tree.
Although known for catering more to a Thai crowd, Big C still embraces the Western winters and come festive season, sells fake snow, Christmas decorations and of course, trees. With an assortment of sizes and styles, they cater across the board, although all are artificial. The smallest and cheapest tree is a one-foot artificial pine for B179 and the tallest and most expensive tree is a seven-foot artificial pine for B2,790.
As one of Thailand’s largest home improvement centres, Thai Watsadu has a loyal following selling everything from construction materials to home decorations. Now, you can add Christmas trees to the list, with four different sizes available, all real and imported from Canada: five-to-six foot, six-to-seven foot, seven-to-eight foot and eight-to-nine foot. The trees, though, are only available in one style, what they call Kassa Home.
The first-choice furniture location for many, IKEA has built a loyal fanbase in Thailand and with an impressive Christmas display, it has also become the first choice for festive tree and decoration shopping, too. They don’t offer the most impressive Christmas trees in town, yet their Fejka Artificial Pine does come in three handy sizes: 200cm at B3,990, 180cm at B1,990 and 155cm at B1,170. Plus, if you’re buying your tree here, then what better place to pick up your accessories as well. Maybe a shiny star or a fairy to go on top of the Christmas tree?

They are also located in Bangpu, Samut Prakan, about an hour drive from the heart of Bangkok.
