Where to Buy Your Christmas Tree in Dubai

There's a wide range of Christmas trees on offer in Dubai...

This festive holiday, when you're making a list and checking it twice, a Christmas tree deserves the top spot. When shopping for your star piece, you're spoiled for choice - artificial or real? Tall or miniature? Fancy decorations or simple trimmings? Topped with a star or a fairy? You wood not believe the options!

Before you buy a Christmas tree in Dubai, you'll first need to determine the type of tree you want. Here are a few quick things to consider before choosing your tree:

  • Tree branches that are further apart from each other can hold larger decorations
  • Branches that are longer can hold heavier ornaments
  • Know the height of your ceiling as you'll need to factor in the tree stand (if you need to get a separate one) and the length of the Christmas tree topper
  • If you're going for a real tree, keep an eye out for any sap as this is an indicator of how fresh the tree is. If there are saps, the newer it is
  • A nice, real tree should have no bare patches
