Christmas shopping is an extremely stressful time, especially if you have taken it upon yourself to turn your home into the set of one of Martha Stewart’s Christmas books. While you can’t escape the hordes of Christmas shoppers fighting you for the last of the decorations on the clearance shelves, you can certainly take a break from the fake and get yourself some freshly scented pine for an OG Xmas.
Although pine trees aren’t exactly native to ‘Straya, we’ve found a few places around Perth where you can go get yourself a nice ol’ tree and impress those nosy neighbours who secretly judge you for not putting in the extra effort.
Here’s where to buy a real Christmas tree in Perth.
