The one $80 Christmas buy that sells out EVERY year is back in stock – here’s how to nab it before it disappears
- The popular ‘Snowy Aspen’ Christmas tree is back on the shelves at Target
- The tree comes in two varieties, pre-lit for $180 and standard for $80
- The tree has previously been described as ‘glorious’ and sells out every year
Target Australia has brought back the popular ‘Snowy Aspen’ Christmas tree for the fifth year running – but shoppers will have to be quick to get one.
The tree has earned a strong following among Christmas enthusiasts and home decorators alike, with hundreds posting their fully decorated Aspen’s online.
The tree comes in two varieties: pre-lit and standard.
The ever-popular ‘Snowy Aspen’ Christmas tree is back at Target Australia – after selling out four years in a row
The pre-lit tree stands at 213cm tall and is $180, while the standard tree is now $80 and is 182cm tall.
The price hike of the pre-lit tree, which was available for just $149 in 2020, doesn’t appear to be stopping customers from rushing into the store.
‘I missed out last year they were gone so fast, even online. I won’t miss out again,’ one keen shopper said.
The standard tree, which debuted for $49 five years ago, has been described as ‘glorious’ by Christmas lovers online.
‘Love this snowy tree, so pretty, fills the house with Christmas joy,’ one woman wrote of the tree.
‘This tree is beautiful, I’m in love and cannot believe how pretty it is. I was lucky enough to find one and I’m grateful I did,’ another said,
While one added: ‘It’s the best Christmas tree ever.’
People have shared pictured of the tree year-after-year, adding to its popularity
The tree sells out every year – weeks before the holiday season begins
The white trees sell out weeks before Christmas every year and the 2022 launch is expected to fly off the shelves in the same way.
The trees are flame retardant and reusable.
Most people have left five-star reviews on the target website after buying the tree this year.
Some people complained it ‘doesn’t quite look like the picture’ but said it is ‘still a very nice tree’.
While others commended the ‘generous sprinkle’ of snow.
One person gave the tree ‘one star’ but didn’t leave a review to explain why they disliked it.
Tips and tricks for setting up the perfect Christmas tree
1. Make sure you’re tree fluffing, otherwise known as tree shaping. Fluffing your tree correctly will transform your drab tree to the most incredible lush and full tree
2. Work your way from the bottom to the top of the tree
3. Work one branch at a time and start from the centre of the tree and work your way out to the tip and make your way around the tree
4. Fluff your tree as simple as ‘left, right and centre’. Each branch has many tips on it and if you start from the centre and work your way out and lift a left tip, then a right tip, then a centre tip and work your way out to the end of the branch
5. Ensuring you do this you will find that you use less decorations and won’t have any gaps
