If you’re looking to pick up a new Christmas tree, there’s lots to consider. Do you choose a real or fake one? Do you go tall or short, wide or slim? Do you have the time to decorate it or would you rather it was pre-lit and pre-decorated? Do you only have a small space to fit it into, perhaps you simply want something extra for the kids’ bedroom or are you looking for a big showstopper tree? Have a look at our Christmas tree buying guide and you’re sure to find your perfect match in no time!

Real tree vs. artificial tree

One of the biggest benefits of having a real Christmas tree is the gorgeously festive pine smell that fills your room. It’s also great fun going out to find your perfect tree as a family. However, it’s no fun picking up the pine needles from the floor every day and having to invest in a new one every year! These days you can pick up an artificial tree that’s so realistic no one will be able to tell the difference! We love this 7ft Drop Hinge Traditional Design Artificial Christmas Tree, which is on of our fullest and most realistic trees. What’s more, you’ll have it up in no time at all with the drop hinge branches that you can simply fold into place when you get it out of the box! So less time faffing and more decorating!

Measure up

Once you’ve decided if you want to go real or artificial, next thing to do is make sure you pick a tree that’ll fit perfectly in your space. Take into account the height of your ceiling before choosing your tree (leaving a bit extra for the tree topper and stand). Think about how much space you have around your tree too. Our Christmas tree range starts at a space-saving 3 foot and goes right up to a whopping 8 – 9 foot!

Time savers

Save yourself some time during the busiest month of the year with a tree that comes pre-lit! With our pre-lit trees you won’t have to worry about buying lights to cover it, and you can skip straight to the good bit – decorating with baubles and other festive accessories.
