Alternatives to online shopping for Christmas decorations
Now that the government has allowed the gradual re-opening of businesses in all sectors to help the economy recover amid the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers have more buying options than just online shopping. Malls and non-essential businesses have opened up again, albeit with a limited workforce and hours.
Divisoria, the quintessential shopping haven for bargain hunters, has seen a surge of Christmas shoppers in recent weeks as well. If you’re looking for massive choices, bulk buys, rock-bottom prices and the ability to haggle for even more discounts from sellers, Divisoria is hard to beat.
However, worrying reports of overcrowding in key streets and malls in the Divisoria area prompted Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domogoso to issue an appeal to eager Christmas shoppers to observe proper protocols, including social distancing and the proper wearing of protective equipment such as masks and face shields.
The Department of Health echoed the sentiment, likewise warning the public of the high risk of acquiring COVID-19 from crowded areas.
Online shopping vs in-store shopping
Trying to decide how best to shop for your Christmas decorations? Here are the pros and cons of online shopping and in-store shopping.
- Shop from the comfort and safety of your own home.
- Quickly compare products from different sellers and platforms.
- View seller and product feedback from verified customers.
- No ability to closely examine products.
- Items may be damaged during shipping.
- Returning damaged or wrong items can be a hassle.
- See and examine the actual item before buying.
- The ability to haggle for discounted prices, if in a tiangge setting.
- No need to wait for days before you can enjoy your purchase.
- Risk of overcrowding, especially in popular shopping areas.
- Risk of being exposed to COVID-19.
- With limited public transportation available, commuting to shopping hotspots can be a challenge.
Top 6 budget-friendly Christmas decoration ideas from Pinterest
1. Button decorations
It’s hard to go wrong with this ultra easy, low-cost decoration idea. Thread buttons together one-by-one to make a long strand of garland, or glue buttons together in a stack to make bobbles for your Christmas tree or windows.
2. Homemade scented candles
Forget paying retail prices for fancy Christmas candles. Use a small paintbrush to glue cinnamon sticks, dried orange slices or scented epsom salts onto the sides of a plain candle. Finish the look off by wrapping the candle with twine, burlap or Christmas-coloured ribbon.
3. Sheet music Christmas trees
Pay homage to your favourite holiday songs with this unexpected visual delight. Cut a sheet of music into a triangle, fold the triangle accordion style and weave a wooden skewer up the centre of the sheet, sticking the bottom of the skewer into a foam or wooden base.
4. Snowmen clothespins
A fun craft for the whole family, clothespins-turned-snowmen are a great way to display photos of past Christmases, fun family traditions or loved ones who live far away. Clothespins can also be pinned to the branches of your tree like ornaments or stuck to the fridge with magnets to display recipes or holiday to-do lists.
5. Mini tubes of Christmas treats
Short on cash but want to give something special to your loved ones? Consider filling test tubes (with lids) or small glass travel bottles with favourite holiday treats like hot cocoa, mini marshmallows, mints or crushed candy canes. Tie tubes together with Christmas ribbon, then attach a name tag with a handwritten holiday greeting.
6. Decorated wine bottles
Transform old bottles into vases, centrepieces or candle holders that reflect your unique holiday style. Make bottles glow from the inside by filling them with white or coloured lights. Or turn your bottles into bud vases for greenery, pine cones, berries, glittery decorative wire and branches spray painted to look snowy.
