Christmas Tree Ornament

Top Places to Buy Christmas tree ornaments on a budget
Around Christmas time, we spend so much money on presents for others, we’re always looking for ways to save money. One of the places where we try to save money is on decorations—we reuse the same tired Christmas tree ornament, the same stocking, the same plate for years and years. To be fair, some of that an be chalked up to love of tradition, but at the end of the day, saving money shouldn’t be the excuse we use for recycling a Christmas tree ornament that has past it’s sell-by date. There are some great options out there for individuals looking to replace or refurbish their Christmas tree ornament collection—no matter where they might live.

1) Target
Ever since they expanded with the “Super Target” franchise a few years ago, target has become the one-stop shop for people on a budget. Around Christmastime, the same thing applies. Target offers all your Christmas accessories—from a crystal Christmas tree ornament to stockings to wrapping paper—all at a steep discount. It’s a good place to buy basics especially, like 24 backs of glass gold bulbs.


2) Costco / Sam’s Club
In a similar vein, the bigger price clubs are a great way to find large collections of Christmas tree ornament offerings at cost. Usually Costco is seen as a place to buy groceries in bulk or reduced priced furniture, but their selection of holiday decorations usually stretches over a full aisle. Unlike Target, you’re not quite sure what sort of Christmas tree ornament brand you’re going to find at Costco—sometimes it will be a large back of glass ornaments shaped like houses, other times it will be yards and yards of tinsel garlands. But whatever’s there, you can be sure it will be offered for a very small amount of what you’d pay elsewhere .


3) T.J. Maxx / Marshall’s
If you’re a fan of discount clothing, you’re going to be familiar with T.J. Maxx and Marshall’s, two of the biggest names in discount fashion. But what a lot of people don’t know is that these stores have extensive home furnishings collections towards the back, with a great selection of dried goods, plates, vases, pots, and furniture. Around the holidays, they also stock several different brands of designer Christmas tree ornament collections from around the world. Hand painted wood and glass, delicate or rustic, Marshall’s and T.J. Maxx have a Christmas tree ornament for every kind of tree and every sort of design. Where Target and Costco stock bulk basics, Marshall’s and T.J. Maxx stock the unique pieces that you would pay huge amounts for in a department store, for a fraction of the cost.


4) Michael’s
In the South, we have Michael’s, but in other parts of the country you have Hobby Lobby or other craft stores. But even if you know it by a different name, you know the idea: a huge craft store that sells all the materials you need for all of your craft projects. Often, these stores will have sections where they sell decorations that you can embellish: Christmas tree ornament aisles in December, and wicker chairs in July. Don’t be scared off thinking the Christmas tree ornament you’ll find here are going to be dull, however—they’re usually just as elaborate as the ones you’d find in a department store, only here they’re priced lower, as they are “raw materials” instead of finished products. And if you’re feeling inspired, you can always pick up some glitter and glue and take your Christmas tree ornament to the next level.
