The time has come, folks. The weather is crisp, the bell ringers are lining storefronts, and radio stations (even Spotify) are pushing Mariah Carey’s Christmas songs. With the holiday buzz in the air, it’s time to turn your home into a winter wonderland. That means dusting off holiday decorations stored in the attic and busting out the nutcrackers. But most importantly, it means setting up the perfect Christmas tree for your home.
Now, let’s use the word “perfect” loosely. What is perfect for you may not be to your neighbor. After all, each household is different, and a couple definitely doesn’t need the same size tree as a five-person family.
While there’s something wonderfully festive about the smell of a real tree, fake trees are just plain easier. There are no messy pine needles, no seeping sap, and no lugging it from a tree farm to your humble home. When shopping for an artificial tree, the key is to seek “real feel” details that don’t scream synthetic. The good thing is that tree technology is pretty advanced in the modern age, giving you that “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter”-feeling in tree form.
Now, artificial Christmas trees should last anywhere from 5 to 10 years when properly cared for and stored away. That said, you want to invest in a tree that you’ll actually like a decade from now. When thinking about your perfect artificial tree, you’ll want to decide between a lit or un-lit option. Many artificial Christmas trees come pre-lit nowadays, though the feature can make a fake tree a bit pricier. But this option can be worth the investment, as a pre-lit tree saves you time, aggravation, and the hassle of replacing string lights. For those that like to get creative and change it up every year, go with a non-lit tree for more customization.
If you’re wondering where to buy the best artificial Christmas trees, wonder no more. Check out the 20 best artificial Christmas trees that look anything but fake.
