IKEA is selling real Christmas trees for a fiver and we want one


IKEA christmas tree


The countdown to Christmas is on. Before you sigh and protest that it's too early, there are some huge health benefits to getting your decorations up early.

Plus, the John Lewis Christmas advert has officially landed to get us all ready for the holidays (and the Waitrose Christmas advert has also hit the telly - if you haven't seen it yet, it'll give you a lot of laughs).

Oh, and you need to start preparing now so that you can get hold of a brilliant advent calendar before they all sell out. There's no need to grab a cheap chocolate number this year. You can get your hands on a cheese advent calendar that looks delicious! Or try a boozy countdown this year with a wine advent calendar! But if food and drink calendars aren't your thing, there's even a Harry Potter advent calendar complete with gorgeous and magical charms.

And just to give you even more festive feels, IKEA are selling a real Christmas tree for just five pounds if you're after the fresh scent of the real thing.

Yep - you can get your own real tree for a fiver and it's an absolute bargain.

'This bargain sounds too good to be true!' we hear you saying. Well, the tree does come in at £25 - however, when you purchase one you'll receive a £20 voucher meaning that it'll only actually cost you a fiver.

You can get hold of the Nordman fir, Nobel fir or Norway spruce tree at IKEA from Thursday 22nd November, meaning you could have your tree up by the weekend.

We're sold.
