Shoplog: AliExpress.com Christmas 2016
Yes, I know, it's still more than two months before Christmas ;-). Still, I have already done some wonderful Christmas shopping AliExpress (kind of Chinese bol.com). Because Aliexpress sometimes has a delivery time of two months, I now show all my purchases. If you want to shop for some of my purchases for Christmas, you are still in plenty of time!
How do I search and buy products on AliExpress
AliExpress is a large online store with many products and various retailers. Searching and finding products is therefore not always easy. Below I will share my step-by-step plan for how I find and buy my products:
1. Enter an English search term.
2. Check “Free Shipping” and “1 piece only”. This prevents you from having to pay shipping costs or from having to purchase more than one product.
3. Then sort the products from Lowest to Highest price. Due to the many suppliers on the site, many products are listed twice, and of course you want the cheapest :-).
4. Find the product you want and add it to your shopping cart.
NB! It may be that not all products arrive, this does not happen often, but it does happen sometimes. Keep in mind. Check with customs to see what you are allowed to import. Some products may not be allowed into the Netherlands and you may have to pay VAT and import duties. Then your purchases can be a lot more expensive.
My Christmas purchases on AliExpress
I show you all my purchases. I will mention what I bought them for and what search terms I used. Prices and product offerings really vary from day to day per provider.
Transparent Christmas ball
A Christmas bauble that you can fill yourself :-).
10 pieces for € 2.97
Search term: Transparent plastic Christmas
The package they were delivered with was really packed with great care. Unfortunately, a few balls were torn. But hey, that couldn't be any other way, they've traveled halfway around the world! I am very satisfied. You will see these on my blog :-).
Christmas tree decoration “candy”
10 pieces for €0.58
Search term: Christmas candy tree hanging
They weren't that nice in the photo when I ordered them. I still order it because I think I can do something fun with it. As you can see in my photo, a bit poor quality. I think I'm going to remove the ribbons and decorate the candy sticks myself.
Christmas balls “snow”
6 pieces for €0.39
Search term: Christmas Snowballs
This year I want a Christmas tree with only white ornaments. So these seemed like a lot of fun to me too. Especially for this price ;-). Yes, what can I say about this... poor quality, little glitter and stars... but yes, 6 for € 0.39 is not a lot of money of course.
Are you already looking forward to the holidays?
