If you are REALLY serious about getting bargain home decor deals, then you need to check out AliExpress!
So what is AliExpress?
AliExpress is kind of like the eBay of China, although you won’t find used items for sale, and they don’t do auctions.
Alright so maybe that isn’t a very good comparison but it gives you an idea.
AliExpress is an e-commerce online retail service with independent sellers operating mostly out of China.
Buying direct from China obviously means that you can find some killer bargains. Sometimes the shipping times are a little lengthy, but I find it’s well worth it when you look at how much you are saving! Shipping is often free of charge, and when it isn’t, the cost is usually minimal.
There are literally millions of items up for sale. You won’t find any famous brand names on AliExpress, but you can often find similar lookalike products listed for sale.
Is it safe to buy on AliExpress?
The short answer is YES!
My personal experience shopping on AliExpress has always been positive overall.
On the rare occasion that I receive an item that is not up to my expectations, a solution can be found pretty much immediately and with no hassle.
So you can rest assured that if something goes wrong, you are covered! Communication can be a bit interesting sometimes, but so long as you keep your messages clear and basic, you’ll manage alright.
AliExpress is the first website I go to now to check if I can get something for less.
I find the best deals can usually be found on smaller sized items. Pillowcases (there are about a bajillion different ones), phone accessories, kids stuff, nail polishes and manicure art stuff, jewelry, clothing… all offer amazing deals if you dig enough!
So I did some prowling. I put together some of my favorite home decor items and accessories that are available right now on AliExpress.

1 → I just love these colorful acrylic vases. I think they look especially fun all styled together, like in the product photo. We all need some color in our lives right now! If you don’t like this particular style, do a search for “acrylic vases” on AliExpress – you’ll find a lot of cool options listed! These ones start at $11. But I’m also obsessed with these iridescent ones….!!!
2 → If you don’t like the acrylic vases, then how about these pastel glass candle holders?! Again, I think these display great in a group – they are so pretty when you have a few different colors and heights displayed together!! From $5.
