What to look out for when choosing a Christmas tree
If you’re shopping for a tree online, it can be difficult to know from pictures if the tree is exactly what you’re after. So while an artificial tree is a good option if you’re after something stylish and low-maintenance, it can pay to consider a few things before buying.
Most importantly, look for a tree with a high tip count. The higher the tip count, the fuller the tree, and the more space for your Christmas tree decorating ideas.
Also, unlike many products, you do tend to get what you pay for when it comes to buying an artificial Christmas tree. This means that often, it’s worth spending the extra cash for a decent one that you’ll use for years to come (it will help the environment if you re-use it, too). You’ll often find that many of the higher-quality, pricier trees look fuller and more natural, too. But rest assured that you don’t have to splurge all your savings—the Black Friday Christmas tree deals can often help you to buy a more premium tree for a discount.
It’s also worth noting whether the tree is pre-lit or not—we’ll dissect this more below, but if you want to add all your own decor, you may not want to buy a tree with lights that you didn’t choose yourself.
Whichever tree you end up buying, one of the best things about artificial Christmas trees over real ones is that aesthetic-wise, they generally boast perfect symmetry, and tend to look good from all angles. Plus, they’re a lot easier to maintain, with no dropped needles on the floor and no need to dispose of it after the festive season!
Should I get a pre-lit Christmas tree?
When shopping for the best Black Friday Christmas tree deals, a pre-lit tree can be a brilliant option.
For example, if you’re worrying about how to decorate a Christmas tree, buying a pre-lit tree can be a great way to make yours look instantly chic without too much effort. They’ll look fun and festive without you having to buy lights separately, and you don’t necessarily add any more Christmas decorations either if you don’t want to.
But what sort should you get if you do want a pre-lit tree? Colorful lights are fun and if that’s your style, go for it! But if you’re unsure, opt for the simple, warm light pre-lit trees as you will never tire of them, and they’ll likely never go out of style. Plus, they’ll go with almost any decor too.
However, you may decide that you don’t want a pre-lit tree, in order to put your own stamp on your Christmas tree decor. If you do choose a pre-lit tree, there’s little to no point putting your own lights on it, which may be disappointing if you’ve already got a set you love stashed away. Also, it’s worth noting that with a pre-lit tree, you can’t really switch up the decor year-to-year, so it may not be the best option if you like to change your lighting set up each Christmas.
