The Christmas is coming, it is now less than 6 weeks away. To avoid line-ups and save time, I suggest to order your Christmas / winter festive supplies online – I do, and I do not have a singe grey hair.
The majority of our Christmas decorations come from China anyway, so why not skip the middlemen, and buy direct? This will save you so much money! Go to AliExpress, if you want to get your Christmas decorations cheap.
For the Christmas lights I have added the note, whether it is a US plug or an EU plug.
Christmas / New Year / Winter Festive Decorations
90 cm Christmas tree
120 cm tall – about 4 ft. It is best to get them before November, which is when they usually start increasing in price.

60 cm Christmas tree
If the 150 cm/5 ft. is too big, or too expensive, there is a smaller option – 60 cm / 2 ft.

30 cm Christmas tree
And as a last resort, if the 2 ft. is too big, or if you just don’t want a large imitation of a dead tree taking a large chunk of you room, here is one that’s just 1 ft. tall that you can fit almost anywhere.

What is AliExpress?
During the Nov. 11 sale of 2015, AliExpress sold $14 billion worth of goods in one day: small electronics, clothes, smartphones, home decor items, which is more than the total of 2014’s Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined.
An overwhelming majority of things that we buy are made in China. But when we buy them locally, we often pay 3-5, or sometimes up to 10 times what the product is worth. But before, to buy goods at these prices you needed to order a few thousands, and shipping was a nightmare. The success behind AliExpress is that it lets you contact suppliers in China directly, and shop through a simple and SSL-secured interface.
