Can you recommend me a nice but not too expensive artificial tree?

We always have a real one, but his year we need to put the tree up extra early as we're off on holiday and have decided we'd be better off with a fake.

As its only going to be used this year we don't want to spend a fortune, but equally we do love our Christmas trees so don't want a completely shit one!

Any recommendations?

Blatant placeholder here.

I was going to start a thread asking similar. I'm not at mine that often, still want a tree, but can't be doing with the needles and whatever blush

Hopeful bump!

We have the IKEA one. It looks fine to me and is sturdy enough to withstand my little kids and cats.

We bought ours from The Range. They have quite a few nice ones in there.

Placemarking as our old 1980s throwback tree needs replacing this year.

We got ours from wilkos a few years ago. It's not brilliant but it was £20 for a 6 foot tree and it's not too scrawny. I love real trees but I come out in a horrible rash which is fine since i just don't touch it but one of the DTs has inherited my crappy skin so i don't want her to get a rash. Hopefully we can resume real trees once she is old enough to not touch it so much.

It's similar to this one. It is a slim tree but that's fine in our tiny living room. They have quite a few other ones too though.

That's helpful, Peng. Thank you flowers

Thanks Peng, I really like that tree too, particularly as it's slim.

We got ours a few years ago from John Lewis, as our old one needed updating. I've just looked and can't find a link. It really, really lovely and skthough green like a traditional tree, it has little bits of glittery snow on some of the branches, so really twinkles with all the lights.

We also picked up a snowy pre-lit twiggy tree for the hall, which was from Next. Love getting them both out each year!
