How early is too early to put up a Christmas tree?
I say ‘NEVER!’
Fiancé says that anything before the second week of December is common. I pointed out that I AM quite common, which he accepted was probably true.
I was prepared to compromise. Our tree at home – always a real one – would wait and instead I would decorate my office.
An office Christmas tree is definitely allowed to go up earlier, because you don’t spend as much time at work over the actual Christmas period and so you need more time to appreciate the sparkles. Luckily I share an office with a friend, Paul, who is just as easily excited about Christmas as me, and another, Marcus, who is only young and so happily goes along with whatever I tell him.
Paul and I agreed that November 25th – one month exactly until Christmas – was an excellent time to head to Poundstretcher to fill a basket with all things sparkly.
I’ve never bought an artificial tree before and was a bit worried that it would look naff. It really doesn’t though. We went for a 6ft tree with snow tipped branches and fir cones, which was on special offer and just £24.99. It came in three parts and was very easy to erect – you just slot it together at the trunk and then bend the branches to bush it out a bit. Easy.
We put in a Christmas songs playlist and set to work.
‘You know you’ve got glitter all over your face don’t you?’ asked Paul.
All the better for getting into the Christmas spirit I say.
Paul is a graphic designer by trade so he was tasked with decorating the window with snow spray. We have an office on the ground floor of a big old terrace building on a crescent, with a window facing the street.
It’s a beautiful arched window, perfect for a festive display. At home we live in a flat, and don’t have anywhere to put a tree where people can see it from outside. It’s nice then to have an office window to decorate instead.
I was happy to do a supermarket sweep style swish of everything from the Poundstretcher Christmas aisle into the basket, but Paul was a bit more sensible about things (his fancy designer’s eye) and suggested a blue and silver theme. It was a great call as Poundstretcher had a lot of lovely stuff in those colours and it made the end result far more sophisticated looking than if I had just been let loose with the tinsel.
I especially liked these mini parcels. They are just polystyrene cubes, covered with glitter, but they are really easy to decorate with as they are so light – they nestle happily wherever you drop them.
And there you have it, our finished tree! I think it’s rather lovely.

I always put the tree up on the 1st but I’m not putting it up this year because my son will pull it down, I’m not great with tinsel, so I usually get a pre lit tree and chuck on lots of baubles and other decorations. I have put up my windows lights and other decorations just tonight infact
Some new decorations for the tree
Storage tubs I’m lacking in those at the moment. I LOVE your Tree! :) x
We always have a glass of fizz and listen to Christmas music whilst putting up the tree and then we have cottage pie with extra cinnamon for tea whilst finishing off the rest of the bottle

Would spend it on all the bargains in store
For me it has to be baking gingerbread biscuits then while they cool I start putting the tree together I have a 7ft artificial one similar to yours with cones and snow tips then the lights. Then I stop.and go and ice my biscuits. While listening to Christmas songs then I hang the baubles and biscuits on my tree and sit back watch a Muppet Christmas Carol and enjoy the cosiness of the fairy lights. I do mine the first sat in December.
Love to put a mixture of new and old decorations on the tree
I would spend it on some new Christmas signs and lights for my windows :)

Long time reader, First time commenting. I say there is never a too early if it was up to me we would have Christmas all year long however my other half doesn’t like that idea we put ours up on the 13th December 12 days before Christmas :) we have a prelit tree so Tinsel just doesn’t look right on it – and if I was to win the £50 voucher I would spend it on stocking filler gifts and some Christmas bedding :)
Some new containers for the kitchen, some colouring books and some sweeties!
Some useful storage boxes to keep all those xmas presents tidy
I have 3 Christmas trees up ALL YEAR and my house is always smothered in fairy lights. I like them so I don’t see why I should put them away. If I won I’d not have a particular plan in mind, I just go an a lovely spree and see what caught my eye!
We need some throws for our sofas!
Lots of treats including chocolates for Christmas Day i
Definately need some new Christmas decorations in our new flat!

All things christmassy, from tree baubles to food treats.
My family’s tradition is that everything (tree, wreath, decorations) goes up on Xmas Eve – hectic but fun. I ring the changes with the theme each year – it really helps to feed my ‘addiction’ for getting more and more decorations, hehehe.
I need a new clock
I love Poundstretcher. It is full of bargains. If I was fortunate to win I would stock up on big box washing powder, cleaning products, kitchen rolls and toilet rolls. Not luxurious, but practical and helps the family budget
I would spend the money on my little boy some decent toys and chocolate
I would spend it on some new storage boxes, I really need to get my Son’s toys organised.
I would put it towards Christmas presents
The garland we put over the fireplace is maybe a little tired, so a replacement, or additions to it, and maybe some household essentials, boring, but we all need roasting foil and toothpaste.

I’d spend on some decorations of course
Lots of chocolates and cleaning products!!
Probably some Christmas nibbles and chocolates
I always put my tree up on 1st December (tomorrow!!!). I used to buy a real one but it got too expensive so now I have an artificial one that looks great! If I won I’d spend the £50 on a grey and natural check friese runner for £14.99, a pug faux mink throw for £19.99 and an ornate white vintage mirror at £14.99.
We don’t have a set date for putting the tree up but it’s never before December, we have an artificial tree and has no colour scheme. I love to take my son for a new decoration every year, then when he decides to leave home he’ll have a box of decorations to take with him and he’ll have all the memories of Christmasses past attached to them

I would love to get some blankets
I would buy some new bedding and Christmas chocolates.

Snacks for Christmas!
We used to have an artificial Christmas tree that we would put up every year two weeks before Christmas but these days there is no Christmas tree and no decorations to be put up since my only child is now married and with no Grandchildren yet to spoil and me being disabled means I cannot put a tree or decorations up. I also have two mischevious semi feral rescue kittens prowling about the house so if I did get someone to put up a Christmas tree and decorations they would probably be shredded within an hour of them being put up.
If I won I would get some presents or treats for the kittens and some soft cuddly throws to keep the kittens and me warm.
fresh new snazzy decorations!
I think I’d save my £50 until after Christmas, to get some treats in the New year when everything seems so dull and flat. And then I’d buy a selection of storage boxes so that in 2017 my annual resolution to sort out and reorganise my craft bits might actually come to fruition
I would buy some outside Christmas lights and some table decorations
I would love some new decorations for our tree and a few stocking fillers for the kids xx

We have a great fake tree which looks like the real thing, which goes up the week before Christmas xx
I like a real tree – ideally one with roots which we can re use each year!

ooh lovely I would love to get some Christmas goodies or presents or maybe household items as I need near enough everything, its panic stations fingers crossed very tightly
Towards chocolate and sweets and stocking fillers
I’d use it for some extra Christmas treats for the family.
presents for my kids
I’d buy 50 items :)
I would buy christmas goodies and decorations
On a takeaway for Christmas Eve, having a chill night before a busy Christmas Day
buy some chritmassy things
Party pieces for New Years eve
I’d stock up on crafts and stationary for the holidays
id love to buy some new accessories for my home
They sell the H20 steam mop there, I had one a couple of years back and loved it but it broke so I’d get a nice new one
birdfood, chocolate and a cushion
I’d probably get some pet treats, or maybe outdoor Christmas lights
