Christmas can be an expensive time, with presents, decorations and food ready for the festivities all adding up. But have you ever thought of getting your Christmas decorations from a charity shop? At Emmaus, we know it is an expensive time of year and can help you decorate your home ready for Christmas on a small budget.

 In our shops, we have a range of quality secondhand and new Christmas items for sale; including trees, lights, baubles and ornaments. By buying your Christmas decorations at Emmaus you can get your tree, lights and baubles for under £15*!

7ft Christmas tree

 Here's how to get your Christmas tree & decorations for £15* this year.

  • Christmas tree – It’s just not Christmas without a Christmas tree! In our shops, we have Christmas trees of all colours, shapes and sizes from as little as £7 for a 6ft tree. You just can’t beat it!

Top tip: Make sure you open out all of the stems on the tree in different directions to get a fuller look.

  • Lights - Lights are an essential part of decorating a Christmas tree. Whether you like multi-coloured, red or warm white, battery or electric, we have it all to suit any style. All electrical lighting has been PAT tested, meaning they are safe to use and start from just £3.

Top tip: Put your lights on the tree before the baubles and decorations to make sure all of the wires are hidden from view.

  • Decorations - Now the lights are sorted, all you need now is the tree decorations. We have a huge range of loose baubles for as little as 10p, as well as multi-packs of new baubles from 50p. For a 6ft tree you need an average of around 50 baubles. That would only cost you £5 at Emmaus. Tinsel of all colours is also for sale. Now all that’s left to decide is what colour theme you are going for this year!

Top tip: Place your largest baubles and decorations on the tree first and add the other decorations around them. Then, finish the tree off with small baubles to fill up any gaps.

All of these items add up to just £15! Make sure you visit your nearest Emmaus charity shops in Bridgend, Porthcawl, Cowbridge, Maesteg, Neath and Aberdare and get your Christmas underway.

We wouldn’t be able to offer such great products if it wasn’t for our generous supporters who donate items they no longer need to us. If you have decorations you no longer want, make sure you donate them to your local Emmaus shop where profits go to support the formerly homeless people living in our Community home. Thank you.
