Where did you buy your christmas decorations?

Hello,

I am at loss, for the first time ever I have to buy and decorate my own christmas tree. Can anyone please give me an idea, how did you decorate your christmas tree where did you buy your decorations? I would really like to buy something unique and original, can someone please point me in the right direction?

Kind regards,

Charde

Any stores should have decorations, although there is a small store just 2 walking minutes from Zürich HB that always has something special.

But if you really want a unique decoration, why not make some yourself (and spend the saved money on a little after X-mas or New Years day trip).

Happy decorating

Re: Where did you buy your christmas decorations?

There are loads of places selling stuff at the moment - Coop and Migros (especially the larger ones)....Interio has nice stuff (bit more expensive)....last year we got ours from a DIY store (something like Jumbo or Obi). I'd be surprised if you can walk around any town at the moment without being assaulted by various Xmas decorations!

Good luck in your search

I am being assaulted haha. That is the problem.

The reason I created this thread is because I am looking for that something special.

Kind regards,

Re: Where did you buy your christmas decorations?

If you want something really special, go to Basel! Nothing can beat Johann Wanner . http://www.johannwanner.ch/index.php?lang=en

But mind you, it will cost you an arm and a leg.

Tacky key chains and tiny sh1te from places we've visited adorns ours... hidden behind the pretty stuff. It's a tree full of memories and intrigues those who look close.

Pfister is a big furniture chain and they'll have all their Christmas baubles for sale after Christmas. We bought ours at 50% off as we add a little more each year for the year to come.

If by something special you mean something expensive try Swarovski. They bring out a limited edition ornament every year.

Re: Where did you buy your christmas decorations?

We kept it quite simple this year and bought couple of sweets bags with colourful X-mas chocolates from Lidl which decoarted our fake evergreen tree. Add some X-mas cards on the branches and it has its little charm.
