Ideas and Inspirations for Holiday Décor
You'll find everything you need to decorate your home or office for the holidays at Reds. We have fresh-cut trees, pre-lit artificial trees, wreaths, boughs,
garland, swags, pine and spruce tips and tops, lights, and ornaments. And no holiday setting would be complete without plenty of poinsettias and tabletop
greens. You can make your own tabletop setting using our selection of fresh-cut greens, twigs, berries, eucalyptus, and magnolias (our staff will be on hand
if you need help), or you can purchase an arrangement pre-made by our custom designer.
We invite you to visit the Gift & Garden Shop to be inspired by our holiday collections. Start with the Wall of Ribbon and move to the Roundtop Collection, Christopher Radko Ornaments, themed holiday displays, and more!
Stop by and see our bountiful selection of greens and things.
Your Source for Unique Gifts
Reds is a great place to pick up unique holiday gifts for that special someone or that special hostess. Do you have someone on your list that's hard to shop for? Instead of procrastinating or dreading a trip to an overcrowded mall, come in and talk with the staff at Reds Gift & Garden Shop. They're loaded with gift-giving ideas from vintage pillows and scented candles to indoor/outdoor rugs and impressive wrought iron ornamental pieces. If you're having trouble deciding, Reds Gift Certificates are the perfect solution. One size fits all, and the recipient can choose from thousands of items in our garden center, from collectibles and home décor to plants and garden supplies. We can customize your Gift Certificate in any amount you choose.
At Reds, we've perfected the art of finding the perfect Christmas tree. Here are five unbeatable reasons to come to Reds for your live Christmas tree ▼
- Every Tree is Hand Picked
Reds inspects every tree for color, shape, density and health. If it's not up to our standards, we won't sell it.
- Fresher Trees
Most retailers have their trees cut early, but we wait to harvest our trees at just the right time for optimal needle retention. A fresher tree means longer lasting fragrance and fewer needles on the floor!
Reds has traditional Balsam and Douglas Firs as well as premium Frasier Firs in sizes ranging from tabletop trees to 14-foot tall giants.
As a Christmas tree, the Balsam Fir has several desirable properties. It has a dark-green appearance and attractive form. It also retains its pleasing fragrance.
The Douglas Fir is a softer, more fragrant variety of tree. The branches are spreading and drooping. The needles are dark green or blue green in color and usually 1 to 1 ½ inches long. They have a sweet fragrance that is often used in holiday potpourri scents.
The combination of form, needle retention, dark blue-green color, pleasant scent and excellent shipping characteristics has led to the Fraser Fir being a most popular Christmas tree species.
- Freestanding Display
Ever buy a wrapped tree only to discover the not-so-festive spots when you open it at home? Not at Reds. Our trees are displayed open and freestanding so you can walk among them and see them 360º. You'll get just the right tree with no hidden weak spots.
- Complimentary Services
After you select your tree, we'll fresh-cut the bottom to allow water to absorb into the trunk and we'll wrap it in netting to protect the branches. We'll carry your tree to your car and load it or provide twine and tie it to your car's roof. Some retailers charge extra for these services. Bah Humbug!
Yes, there will be big box stores that sell trees for a little less. But when you consider that all our trees are hand-selected and fresher, and that we provide all these free services, we think you'll agree that a Reds tree is an excellent value.
In addition to fresh trees, we carry a large line of artificial Christmas trees in a number of height, diameter, and pre-lit and unlit options.
Our Garden Shop showcases several artificial Christmas trees that are decorated in many styles, offering you some holiday decorating ideas.
