Where to get Christmas decorations?

In order to get into the Christmas spirit, a must essential in the house are the Christmas decorations. For this, we highly suggest taking a good look at El Corte Ingles, where you can find many types of Christmas decorations, and stylish gift ideas from clothing to accessories for men, women and children. El Corte Ingles is located in the famous Puerto Banus, which is a luxurious place to go shopping. In Puerto Banus, for the Christmas season, they open a “Mercado de Navidad” from the 19th of December until the 6th of December. It is situated in Plaza Antonio Banderas with a skating park, wood cabins and activities to enjoy with the whole family.
