If you’re looking to pick up a new Christmas tree this year you’ll have a lot 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 or do you simply want something extra for the kids’ bedroom?
Have a look at our guide to picking out your Christmas tree and find your perfect match in no time!
Real vs. fake
One of the biggest benefits of displaying a real tree at Christmas is the gorgeous pine smell that fills your room. It’s also great fun going out to shop for 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 Canadian Fir Tree which comes with a premium metal base and hooked branches for you to hang all of your decorations on.
Top tip: Capture the smell of a real Christmas tree by hanging these ScentSicles from the branches for a lovely authentic fir scented aroma.
Make sure you pick a tree that will fit perfectly in its 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. If it’s a bit cramped, a standard Christmas tree might be a bit of a squeeze so why not try our clever 6ft half tree? It’ll prop right up against your wall without looking out of place, providing the perfect solution (and saving you money on lights and decorations!). Our trees range starts at a space saving 2 foot and goes right up to a whopping 8 foot!
Save yourself some time during the busiest month of the year and choose a tree that comes pre-lit! With this 6 foot pop-up tree, you won’t have to worry about not buying enough lights to cover it, plus you’ll also have a set of decorations ready to go. Or if you’d prefer to personalise your tree, go for one that’s just pre-lit and buy your decorations separately.
Don’t forget the kids
If the kids don’t want to be left out of the tradition you could always pick up a smaller version for them to pop in the corner of the bedroom. Our 1.5 foot Christmas tree is small enough for them to decorate on their own and we’ve got a huge choice of decorations designed especially for little ones.
