The best artificial Christmas tree does not exist. This is because it depends on which one is best for your space, lifestyle, and budget. If you’re still deciding and shopping around, consider our artificial Christmas tree guide to help.

What are the qualities of a good artificial tree?

If you want your Christmas tree to last you years, it’s essential to choose one that’s high-quality. These also tend to look more “real.” Typically higher quality faux realistic Christmas trees are manufactured from PE versus PVC or a mix of both. These realistic trees are on the pricier side.

How to pick your Christmas tree

Which Christmas tree should I buy?

Before you start browsing, we recommend getting the measuring tape to take note of the width and height of your ceilings. Typically, many customers opt for a tree that is one foot less than the ceiling; this allows room to add the tree topper. Think about a budget after you have the measurements; remember, this is a one-time investment that can last many years. It’s more economical than buying a real tree. No matter if you want to add your artificial Christmas tree to the living room or are looking for a small Christmas, there is a perfect one out there for you. Think about if you prefer an artificial pre-lit Christmas tree or want to add your lights. After that, consider colors and textures; we have a white Christmas tree, a blue spruce Christmas tree, a black Christmas tree, and more.

How do you measure the height and width of a Christmas tree?

We make every effort to display our artificial Christmas trees as accurately as possible. After each item is shaped, we measure dimensions as you see in the photo and taken from the widest or tallest reference points. For the height, we start at the floor, the bottom of the pot (even if it’s non-decorative and a simple black planter.) We then measure to the tallest leaf or branch, think the top of a Christmas tree. There may be some subtle differences after you have some fun DIY customizing. For arrangements, we also provide dimensions of the vase as a reference.

Can I use my artificial Christmas trees outdoors?

Artificial Christmas trees are not outdoor safe, so don’t place your full tree outdoors where they can get damaged.

What is the best time to buy an artificial Christmas tree?

The best time is sooner rather than later to ensure you receive the Christmas tree you like. With high demand and low inventory, we suggest before Thanksgiving as a rule of thumb.
