BARGAIN hunters wanting to bag their Christmas tree for less this year might want to buy theirs now to beat the rush.
Christmas may be over two months away, but it's never too early to do your festive shopping.
We've rounded up five of the cheapest Christmas trees you can buy now so that you can beat potential price increases as the big day draws nearer.
But before you splash out, remember to check prices online.
You could find the same item – or something similar – cheaper elsewhere.
You'll also want to factor in the cost of delivery if you're buying online.
As Christmas trees are bulkier items, it might cost more to get it delivered to your door.
It comes as Brits have been warned that there could be a potential shortage of festive staples this year.
