Why Cut Christmas Trees Are Still So Popular

Christmas tree fully decoratedWhen looking at how quickly our Christmas trees have disappeared again this year it’s pretty clear they remain as popular as ever. When you consider the differences between cut Christmas trees and the alternatives, you would be excused for wondering why. I think the alternatives probably lack that little bit of uniqueness that a cut tree offers. But then, rather than try to guess why they are so popular, why not let our buyers tell why they are so special. And they do. Here are some snippets from the feedback we get from our customers.

“……no fiddle with choosing one, no fight to get it into the car just a lovely tree delivered to our door….”

“…..the tree is absolutely beautiful, full and bushy and a wonderful shape. I just wish you could put smell-o-vision on the internet, the whole house is filled with the most Christmassy aroma and has got us all in the festive spirit….”

“Our Christmas tree arrived today as per the schedule and it is absolutely marvellous! We couldn’t have hand picked a better one – lovely shape, excellent condition….”

“…..It is so soft it doesn’t feel like a real tree but it looks amazing, we only wished we had ordered a bigger one…..”

This is just a smattering of the feedback we get yet each Christmas we look forward to hearing what people have to say. When we know that one of our Christmas trees has helped to make the Christmas season so special – it makes all our hard work over the years worth effort. Do let us know your thoughts if you have purchased a Christmas tree from Scottish Christmas Trees – it helps to make our Christmas special too.

You’ve Ordered Your Christmas Tree – What About The Decorations?

Christmas tree lightsI cannot believe how quickly Christmas is coming. We are already past the halfway mark for November and with only five weeks to Christmas Day, the orders are coming in thick and fast for Christmas trees. A question for you, though – have you checked on your decorations yet?

Most families order their Christmas trees and it’s not until the tree arrives that they drag out the box of decorations. Some of our decorations sell out early so it may be a good idea to check on them now – especially lights.

Do you need new bulbs or a new transformer? Test them now and buy any replacements sooner rather than later. Then, when your Christmas tree arrives your decorations will all be in order and ready to use. There is nothing more disappointing than to decorate a tree only to find the lights are not working. It’s even more disappointing when you have to run around finding new lights or spare parts and the shops have sold out – or only have the cheap and nasty remaining.

Once you get your Christmas tree sorted, check your decorations. We have a full range of lights, baubles and decorative items that will have your Christmas tree looking like magic. Don’t leave it until the last minute!

Christmas Trees And Santa Sacks

Santa Sacks for Christmas treesOne of things that children of all ages look forward to is the Santa Sack all full of goodies that is often found under Christmas trees on Christmas morning. I know many children who prefer the Santa Sack over wrapped Christmas gifts.

Whether your children have a Santa Sack each, or there is just the one, as a parent there is something satisfying about filling them full of goodies. Some families prefer to hang them from the mantle, others from bed heads. We prefer to place them under the Christmas tree.

Considering how ornate they look, placing them at the base of Christmas trees just gives the tree that added touch.

Santa Sacks are not small either, measuring in at 55cm x 78cm.  Fill them with sweets, fill them with little knick-knacks, there’s plenty of room for treats for the whole family.

These Santa Sacks will last for years. Get one for each of your children and they can place their names on them. This one, the Harlequin Jester Santa Sack, even has a pocket for your child to place their Santa wish list. As a parent, you can write back to your child on Santa’s behalf. I am sure most children would be delighted with that response.

Make your Christmas Tree is complete with a Santa Sack this Christmas.
