This Market in Delhi has the Best Christmas Decorations
It’s officially the season to be merry! The chills have set in, the fruits are soaked, and well, all you need now is the tinsel. If you haven’t brought in the Christmas cheer into your homes already, here’s where you need to go. This market is our go-to for literally everything, and of course, this time of the year is no exception. Yeap, we’re talking about Khan Market. Trees, Santa Claus and ornaments, this is the place to shop the A-Z of Christmas decorations. Read on to get the lowdown if it all.
Santa Claus is coming to town!
There are two stores in the market that are spreading all the cheer. First up is Kriti Creations in the square next to the parking at the backside. From the little façade to the very end of the store, all you will see are Christmas ornaments. You’re greeted outside the store with a bunch of musical Santa’s in different sizes that are in the range of Rs.5,000-Rs.12,000
Colours, cones and candy sticks
Enter the store and you will find yourself in the middle of bauble paradise. Runners, ornamental reindeers, balls, bells, candy sticks, grape bunches, pinecones, wreaths, the list is endless! The burst of colours in the store is enough to set in the festive mood and make it linger on the entire day.
Tick off that Shopping List
Most tree ornaments start from Rs.90 a pack and go up to Rs.1,400, depending on the size. Wreaths, varying in size and design, cost anything between Rs.300-800. Runners in the most beautiful colours range between Rs.60- Rs.90. They also have the prettiest Santa ribbons to top your gifts with. Be it a heavy-duty party or just a decorate-the-tree kind of Christmas, Kriti Creations can serve all your decoration needs. Oh, and don’t miss the cutesy reindeer ear headbands for your lil ones.
Our picks from Gift Palace
Move out of Kriti Creations and walk towards Sugar & Spice to reach the next store, The Gift Palace. This store has its entire Christmas setup outside. Though the variety here is less, it’s definitely worth a stop. We absolutely loved their designs of the ornamental balls. Ranging from metal ones to those topped with beads and checked ribbons, you’d want them all. These range from Rs. 100 a pack to Rs.699.
A dreamy white Christmas
If buying individual packs is a bit much, the store has a combo packs. Get yourself a set of stars, pinecones, bells, stockings and balls, all enough for one tree for Rs.2,699. Gift Palace also has a quite a variety of white decorations for a snow-capped Christmas, including a white tree.
A tree of your choice
What we particularly loved at this store are the bigger pieces and Christmas trees. Check out this cute reindeer and snowman, that, of course, comes loaded with lights. These cost between Rs.4,000 and Rs.5,000. The good quality trees start at Rs. 3,000, while the smaller, thinner ones are for Rs.800.
Faux snow and a complimentary cheery glow
Our pick though from this store is this super cute fountain tree, that throws out faux snow from the top. The umbrella at the base collects it all and it goes back into the tree. This Christmas delight comes at cost of Rs.20,000 – a little expensive but worth it, especially if you have kids at home.
Your Weekend Must-Visit
Flea shops through rest of the market also have their bits, but these two stores are where you’ll find all the meat! Make your way to the market this weekend, and welcome the Christmas cheer home.
