One of the most important questions every Christmas is what type of Christmas tree to get, where to buy it from and how to decorate it.
Is it tall enough? Are the decorations artfully spread across the tree? Will it drop its needles?
With nine days to go until December, and therefore just over a week until we can unashamedly launch into decorating and planning for Christmas, IKEA are helping customers get into the festive spirit with a perfect Black Friday hack.

From today (November 22) IKEA customers can pick up a Christmas tree in store and receive a £20 voucher to spend in the new year,
The trees are worth £29, meaning that overall, when considering the value of the voucher, the tree will cost the equivalent of £9.
The trees available as part of the offer are all real Nordmann Fir trees and are typically around 170cm (5ft 7in) tall, but do vary in size.

Customers who manage to get their hands on a Christmas tree and accompanying voucher will then be able to spend the voucher in store between Monday January 10 and Sunday February 13 next year, providing the perfect opportunity to pick up home essentials for a little less.
Advertising the offer on their website, IKEA described it as “a Christmas tree that comes with a gift”.
The offer will be available at participating IKEA stores until the 23rd December while stocks last, and if previous years are anything to go by, MyLondon would recommend bagging one early as the trees usually sell out rather quickly.
