The Christmas season is just around the corner.
And as we reach the end of November, it’s about that time of year where our attention turns to trees.
While some will soon be heading to the attic to brush the dust off their artificial firs, others will once again be on the look out for the real deal.
And after a challenging financial year for many, the cheaper you can get your hands on one for, the better.
Over the years, IKEA has proved to be on of the cheapest places to pick up a tree in the UK.
Last year, the big blue warehouse ran a tempting deal which saw shoppers able to bag one for under a tenner.
The offer involved being gifted a free £20 store voucher when purchasing a tree for £29.
And the year before, in 2018, the popular furniture store was running the same deal but for the cheaper price of £25 with a free £20 voucher – meaning you were essentially getting your tree for a fiver!
Inevitably, then, this year many customers have been anxiously waiting for the announcement of the popular money-saving deal’s return.
Well, the wait is finally over.
IKEA has announced that the Christmas tree offer is back for the ninth year and customers are now able to pick up a real Nordmann fir tree for £29 and receive a £20 IKEA voucher to spend in the new year.
But unfortunately, the offer will only be available at participating stores – and IKEA Manchester Ashton didn’t make the cut.
The only open UK stores where Christmas trees will be able to be purchased outside this year are Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
But it’s not all bad news for those in the region.
Some closed stores will be offering a click and collect service on Christmas trees – and Warrington is one of the branches involved.
Christmas trees purchased in this way must be reserved online first.

The store writes: “In-line with COVID-19 regulations, options for purchasing and picking Christmas trees from stores will vary based on local guidelines.
“For IKEA stores in England that remain closed until the 2nd December, customers will need to reserve a tree via an online booking reservation tool and pay for the tree on collection from their preferred store’s car park.”
Anna Liakh, commercial activities leader, IKEA UK and Ireland, said: “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.
“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.”
The Christmas tree offer will run from now until December 24 in participating stores while stocks last. Customers will be able to redeem their IKEA voucher against a range of IKEA products from January 18 to February 28, 2021.
