Wondering where to buy a Christmas tree in Singapore? We've tracked down the best nurseries and stores to pick up your live or fake festive centrepieces.
We’re heading into December and we’re just about overflowing with Christmas spirit here at HoneyKids HQ. Nothing says ‘Christmas in Singapore‘ like a dazzling tree bedecked in decorations and lights galore, so we’ve got the scoop on where to bag yourself a festive fir. Whether you want to throw tons of tinsel at a fake number, or fancy the smell of pine wafting through your home with the real deal, we’ve taken a sleigh ride around town to find the best places to buy real and fake Christmas trees in Singapore this year. On the count of three: Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree…
Far East Flora
Known for its vast selection of plants and flowers at its two massive nurseries along Thomson Road, Far East Flora is packed with stacks of small, medium and giant trees, starting from $153 for a 5-6ft number, up to around $632.30 for a 10-11ft whopper. Trees can be delivered from 22 November, and there’s still time to bag a discount on early orders before 30 November. We also love the gorgeous wreath options and seasonal blooms to perk up your festive table settings. Oh, and don’t forget to check out its fab food and gift hampers, too!
Far East Flora, multiple locations.
Bedok Garden & Landscaping
East Coasters can find a forest of festive firs ranging from 4–12ft at Bedok Garden & Landscaping at decent prices. Be sure to snag one early to enjoy early bird discounts!

Prince’s Landscape & Construction
Why go for a teeny tree when you can go for a gargantuan Noble fir? While many of us would have to bend an enormous tree in half to fit it into our home, we say if you’ve got the space (and the cash to spare), then go for it! Arms not long enough to plonk the star on the top? These guys also offer a full shebang tree decorating service. But for those of us who need an average-sized tree for an average-sized home, firs start at $229 for a 5ft tree which includes (and this we love, free delivery, set up and dismantling of your tree, no matter the size). Book online early!

Song Lang Gardens
If you’ve left the scramble for a real tree until the last minute and are fearing you may have to decorate the rosemary bush on your balcony with tinsel instead (yes, we’ve done that), worry not. Take yourself to Song Lang Gardens on the East Coast where you can generally avoid the tree stampede infamous at some of the bigger nurseries, and prices are kept reasonable too.

With fresh-cut Noble and Nordemann firs arriving this month, there’s a tree for every budget and size at Candy Floriculture. Prices range from $108 for a 4-5ft Noble fir and $150 for a 5-6 Nordemann fir, to $750 for a 10-11ft number for both firs. Delivery is available – these beauties may be a little large for the boot of a taxi!

Prices range from $159 for a 5-6ft tree to $255 for a 7-8ft number. Add a little extra cost for a stand (because propping trees against a wall really doesn’t work). Trees are already in stock, so get cracking on your order: delivery is free!
Island Group, Island Landscape & Nursery Pte Ltd, 3 Joan Road, Singapore 298897, p. 6254 9867
Corona Florist & Nursery
Head over to Corona Florist & Nursery and among the lush, tropical greenery you will find an impressive array of 4-9ft Christmas trees being stocked from the second week of November. Trees get snapped up quickly so do register your interest and secure your fir in advance by emailing [email protected]

Cold Storage supermarket is not just about groceries: it’s also secret fir heaven! Pop in-store and pick up a Fraser fir tree while you grab your turkey and all the trimmings. Plus, it stocks a pretty decent range of fake numbers from 4-6ft if you’re not after the real deal.

Masons Home Decor
If a real-looking faux tree is the name of your Christmas game this year, Christmas Tree Singapore will make your festive wishes comes true. We love the selection of hyper-realistic trees – with an abundance of dense green foliage and lifelike branches, they look just like the real deal! The trees are on sale right now, so snap them up quick.

Tangs is our seasonal go-to when it comes to adding some festive cheer to our homes. The store is decked out with everything from baubles to ornaments, wreaths to table pieces, and, of course, artificial Christmas trees! Whether you want a shiny black number, a dazzling white show-stopper, or a traditional green fir, Tangs will have you kitted out with all your tree and decorations needs in the blink of an eye.

Vanda Win’s artificial trees are so life-like that not even Santa himself would be able to spot it for a fake! Trees range from 4ft to 5.5ft and come in a variety of colours. We love its classic green Milford Spruce fir options but are also drawn to the idea of a white Christmas with shiny snow coloured tree. Buy your tree either naked and ready for you to throw some tinsel at, or purchase a ready-decorated tree if you’re feeling time-crunched – or unable to find your inner-tree designer.

While there may have been a collective sob around the island when IKEA announced it would not be stocking real trees, we soon cheered right back up when we checked out the Vinterfest tree range – great faux fir options in all shapes and sizes at sensible wallet-friendly prices. Phew! If you’re lucky, you might even be able to order your Christmas goodies online.
IKEA, Locations in Tampines and Queenstown.
Who knew you could buy a faux Christmas tree and do some grocery shopping at the same time? Redmart has several selections in different sizes for you to choose from, and they’re pretty affordable, too!
