Your complete Christmas shopping guide for an artificial or fresh Christmas tree in Singapore, plus decorations, ornaments, wreaths and fairy lights
Every year the Orchard Road Christmas lights start going up in October, and Christmas carols start playing in the supermarket on 1 November like clockwork, but it never really feels like Christmas in our house until we have our Christmas tree up. If you’re not sure where to buy a Christmas tree in Singapore, never fear, we’ve got you sorted! Whether you’re after a 12 foot fir tree delivered, decorated and disposed of afterwards, or an artificial Christmas tree from IKEA that packs neatly away until next year, you’ve got plenty of options, mama. It’s time to deck the halls!
Real Christmas Trees
Choose from either a Noble Fir or a Nordmann Fir, and then decide how big you want to go! Sizes range from 4ft – 11ft, and prices range from $108 – $1000. Add on a tree stand for $30-$50 and tree disposal for $30-$50 depending on size. You can also order a wreath or garland, Christmas decorations and fairy lights, and even miniature fresh potted trees.
Cold Storage will be offering fresh Balsam Fir Christmas trees from $99 for a 5-6ft tree up to $199 for a 9-10ft tree. Bases range from $26 – $50 and delivery is $60 – no self-collection. Bear in mind, Cold Storage don’t offer a removal service, so you will need to arrange disposal yourself after Christmas! (Ah, the downside of having a real Christmas tree.)

If you want a spectacular real Christmas tree but don’t have time to organise and decorate yourself, this is a great option for you. Choose a Noble Fir Christmas tree base ranging in size from 5ft – 12ft, then add on options from there. Select whether you would like the tree to be fire-retardant treated, plain or decorated (opt for 30%, 50% or 70% coverage), choose your colour scheme then pick your delivery and disposal dates. Prices start at around $600 for a treated and decorated 5ft tree delivered to your house.
This year Sing See Soon are importing Fraser Fir Trees, which range from $79 for 4-5 ft up to $689 for 11-12ft Christmas trees. Opt for a tree stand from $25 – $42 (depending on tree size) and pre-arrange disposal for $20.
