It’s not that you want to be a Scrooge, but there’s really no point spending all that money on something you’re only going to use once a year.

I feel ya.

So to help, I’ve whipped up a list of places you can get beautiful but still cheap and affordable Christmas decorations. Most of these stores are in every neighbourhood, so they’re easily available too!

  1. Fairprice NTUC

    You’ve got an abundance of affordable lights, ornaments and even festive food offerings (which we’re not going to talk about). I remember a few year’s back the ornaments were pretty tacky, but we’re please at this year’s selection. Head to Fairprice Finest for an even better collection, all priced under $10!
    Here are some of the ones I picked out from Tampines 1’s Fairprice Finest for you:

    Priced at $6.90

    Price $3.90

    Price $6.90
  2. Cold Storage

    Cold Storage never fails to deliver when it comes to Christmas time, and this year’s ornaments are just as lovely and affordable. These matching sets of ornaments are just going for $19.90:

    Priced at $19.90

    Priced at $24.90
  3. Daiso

    Do I even need to explain anything? Everything is $2 here! They do have several items that are definitely more than $2 but still they are below $10. Check it out:

    Each of these ready decorated trees are between $4 to $6.
    Of course they have a huge range of decorations for you to choose from.

  4. Tokutokuya

    I stumbled upon this treasure trove at Kallang Leisure Mall. Like Daiso, everything here is $2. They have a giant Christmas and food sale running at the moment. Go check it out!
    Plenty of adorable things for the homeowner. In fact, I put together a little Christmas tree with the stuff I bought.

5. Groupon
Groupon has great deals on regularly pricey Christmas decorations. Like these:

Fully decorated Christmas trees from $18.90 (worth $129.90)

From $59.90 for a Christmas Tree with LED lights (worth up to $129.90)

$15.90 for a set of 5 3D pop-up Christmas cards (worth $39.90)

From $9.90 for a 2-piece Christmas-themed cutlery pouch set (worth up to $179.40)
