HOUSEHOLDS planning to deck their halls this weekend might want to check out Argos, which has a third off Christmas decorations and trees.
Prices start from just £2.50 for baubles and stars for the top of trees ranging to £50 for a 7ft pre-lit Christmas tree.
Of course, just because it's got a sale on doesn't mean it's going to be cheapest so always use a price comparison site to check prices elsewhere first.
PriceSpy and Google Shopping are good sites to use.
And if you can wait until after Christmas, there may be even bigger discounts to be had as retailers often try to clear their festive stock.
Just bear in mind delivery costs if you're ordering online at Argos. The retailer charges different fees depending on the size of the item and how quickly you want it to arrive.
Standard home delivery costs from £3.95, but you can click and collect in stores for free.
We round-up some of the top deals below.
Argos Home 7ft Imperial Christmas Tree – Green
- Was: £26.25. Now: £17.50 – save £8.75 (33 per cent) – buy now
This 7ft artificial Christmas tree with 703 tips and hinged branches comes in three parts that slot together into a sturdy base.
It's proved popular among shoppers with an average of four out of five stars on Argos from 1,133 reviews.
We couldn't find 7ft artificial trees being sold for less than this at other major online retailers.
Homebase's cheapest comparative tree, for example, costs £50, while Wayfair charges £44. It's unclear how many tips Homebase's version has but Wayfair's does have more than Argos at 841.
Argos Home 6ft Mixed Tip Snowy Pre Lit Christmas Tree
- Was: £52.50. Now: £35 – save £17.50 (33 per cent) – buy now
If you'd prefer a tree that's already got its lights on it, you might want to splash out on this one, which also has snowy tips and faux pine cones attached to it.
The tree has 550 tips with hinged branches and comes with a stand.
Amazon is selling a similar 6ft pre-lit Christmas tree for £10 less at £24.99 (plus free delivery) but it doesn't say how many tips it has and it doesn't have the snowy branches and pine cones.
TJ Hughes also has a 6ft tree for £35 but again there's no winter effect and it has fewer tips at 515.
Argos Home Set of Four Outdoor Wreath Garland
- Was: £37.50. Now: £25 – save £12.50 (33 per cent) – buy now
For a festive fix outside your home, Argos is selling this cute set of miniature outdoor garlands.
There's a wreath for your front door, two mini Christmas trees to stand either side of your doorstep, and a festive bough to hang above your door.
They're all pre-lit with LED lights powered by AA batteries so you don't need to worry about having an outdoor plug socket to use them.
But the batteries don't come included so don't forget to buy those too.
The cheapest we could find a similar set being sold for online was at Studio, which is charging £31.99, plus £4.99 delivery.
Argos Home Winters Cabin Silver Baubles – 48 Pack
- Was: £6. Now: £4 – save £2 (33 per cent) – buy now
For a classy finish to your Christmas tree you might want to check out this 48-pack of baubles from Argos, which is on sale for just over 8p a bauble.
The shatterproof set includes three different metallic shades of charcoal, silver, and white, and they're all pre-threaded.
In comparison, M&S is selling a 40-pack of shatterproof silver baubles for £3.50 – also making it just over 8p a bauble. You can click and collect in store for free or delivery is £3.50 or free on orders over £50.
Argos Home 12 Pack Berry Christmas Mini Shaker Baubles Gold
- Was: £3.75. Now: £2.50 – save £1.25 (33 per cent) – buy now
These pretty baubles are made from clear glass and filled with tiny, shimmering, gold stars.
They're even tied with gold ribbons ready for you to hang straight on your tree.
We couldn't find similar baubles being sold for less online.
In comparison, Sainsbury's is selling a smaller eight-pack of mini baubles filled with gold stars for a pricier £2.75.
Argos Home Candle Arch Christmas Light – Red
- Was: £7.50. Now: £5 – save £2.50 (33 per cent) – buy now
This pretty light-up candle set would jazz up any windowsill or table.
The bottom is wooden, while the candles are LED bulbs. You need two AA batteries to power the candles and these aren't included so you'll have to buy them separately.
This is the cheapest price we could find a seven-candle arch being sold for. In comparison, Robert Dyas has a plain wooden version for £9.99, with delivery starting from £3.95 (it's free on orders over £50).
For more Christmas bargains, Tesco has up to 80 per cent off trees and decorations.
While Wilko has slashed Christmas tree prices by up to 33 per cent.
And Matalan has launched a half price sale on decorations with prices starting from £1.50.
