You can get a real IKEA Christmas tree for just £9 this year

Planning on investing in a real Christmas tree this year? Good news: IKEA has confirmed that it’s bringing back its annual Christmas tree offer for the ninth year running, meaning that you can dress your home for the festive season without breaking the bank.

Here’s how it works: you must buy the ABIES NORDMANNIANA Christmas tree, which has a retail value of £29, and will be available from 22 November. Once you’ve made your purchase, IKEA will reward you with a £20 voucher – leaving you technically having spent just £9 on the tree itself.

Loyal Christmas customers will note that as with last year’s deal, this does represent a price jump of £4, as in previous years you’ve been able to get your hands on a fir for a fiver. However, you’ll still struggle to find a cheaper real tree on the market elsewhere.

Terms and conditions, of course, apply – the voucher cannot be used against the tree, so you do have to put in £25 upfront to get the £20 back. Plus, speaking of the voucher, you can only exchange it for £20-worth of IKEA items of your choosing in store between 18th January to 28th February 2021 (excluding food, so don’t go getting any idea about a meatball feast).

‘For many, a beautifully decorated tree is the heart of the home at Christmas time, so we’re proud to continue to offer our customers affordable fresh trees through our much-anticipated Christmas tree deal,’ Anna Liakh, Commercial Activities Leader, IKEA UK and Ireland, said of the deal.

‘The delicate scent of pine needles throughout the home is one of our favourite Christmas fragrances, lifting everyone’s spirits during the festive season and we want as many people as possible to be able to experience that, particularly as Christmas will likely look different this year.’

‘What’s more, shoppers can redeem their £20 voucher across a whole range of homewares in-store, making the offer a gift that truly keeps on giving this Christmas.’

IKEA stores in England are currently still closed due to Covid restrictions, so you may have to wait for your local branch to reopen before you can take advantage of the saving, but you can reserve a tree online and pay for it on collection, if you’re keen to beat the crowds.
