It’s never too early for the lights, tinsel, and garlands—just like Jose Mari Chan and Mariah Carey already blasting through speakers. Personally, my nostalgic heart gets fuzzy whenever I see (girls and boys selling lanterns…just kidding!) exhibitions of the holiday spirit. It’s also nice to think that a lot of people take the time to extend the jovial experience through decorations with others.

And if you’re one of those people or wanting to be one of them, here are some bang for your buck places to check out.

Christmas Factory

565 AH Lacson cor. Jocson Sts., Sampaloc, Manila

A few kilometers away from Christmas Factory is Dapitan Arcade, a bigger hub for export-quality holiday decor. There’s a concrete building for the Santa Clauses, Christmas lights, and others, but also, outside, there are makeshift tiangges where you can haggle. You can also find various knickknacks, novelty items, and tableware here.

 

Ingarden

No. 6 Unit B&C 11th Jamboree St., Quezon City
416-6375
10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Saturday

Catering wholesalers or retailers, Ingarden is the place to buy Christmas ornaments, as well as artificial flowers, plants, vases and planters, and Christmas trees. It also offers design services for homes, hotels, window displays, showrooms, and others.

 

Chrysara NEST

Angeles Industrial Park, Bacolor, Pampanga

Hailing from the farther North, Chrysara NEST is indeed a nest not only for handcrafted furniture, but also for Christmas decor and collectibles. It also boasts its unique pieces like their own version of the nativity inspired by Neopolitan creche collections from the 18th century.

 

Natural Art Flowers and Decors

801 Tayuman cor. G. Perfecto Sts., Tondo, Manila
252-6141 to 45

Natural Art is more known as a flowers and decors shop, which also offers event styling, landscaping, and pocket gardening. However, it started as a shop for Christmas decor. Expect poinsettias, Santa Clauses, candy canes, and other Yuletide-themed pieces here.

 

Divisoria

Of course, the ultimate place to get almost everything, Divisoria, is on the list. Complete your Christmas setup as well as gifts for your loved ones here.

 

Greenhills Shopping Center

10 a.m. to 9 p.m., every day

Shop for Christmas decor more comfortably (well, at least, compared to Divisoria) here at the air-conditioned tianggehan of Greenhills. You can also do a side trip here to buy gifts aside from decorations. Restaurants and food chains are also accessible.
