Fake Christmas trees aren't the plastic monstrosities of yesteryear. With more realistic silhouettes, tangle-free lights and easy upkeep, there are plenty reasons to make the switch to an artificial Christmas tree—for one, you won't find yourself vacuuming up loose pine needles until Valentine's Day. Not to mention, you can save money buying one tree and stowing it away for year-after-year use. Plus, you can easily get whatever style you like without having to search the local tree farm in the cold.
Whether you want a tall fir, a short spruce, a pencil-thin pine or even a half-tree for an ultra-small space, there are plenty of options for you out there. And if fun, kitschy colors are what you seek (yes, pink Christmas trees exist, and black trees are the latest trend, too), there are plenty to choose from. No matter what you're in the market for, these are the best fake trees you can buy this year. All you need now are some decorations to match.
It's pretty easy to understand why this pick flies off the warehouse shelves. Just take a look at the price tag.
It's easy to mistake this stately pine for the actual thing. The dense shape packs in more than 5,000 branch tips, meaning there are plenty of places to hang your entire ornament collection.
Appropriately named after their bluish foliage, living blue spruces possess one less-desirable quality. The needles give off an unpleasant odor when crushed. Save your nose by going the fake route and burning a balsam-scented candle instead.
There's nothing wrong with a classic. Snap the three sections together, and this traditional beauty stands an impressive 7.5 feet tall.
This evergreen looks just like the real thing thanks to its tightly-packed branches, and all of the bright, multi-colored lights add a touch of Christmas magic.
If a little extra sparkle is what you seek, skip the white tree and go for its metallic cousin: the silver tinsel tree. It won't look like the real thing, but it will look absolutely stunning when it's all lit up.
A champagne gold metallic tree is the perfect option if you really want to up the glam factor for your holiday decor. It's a little more fun than your standard green, but it will still look great with just about any colors you want to decorate it with.
Even the tightest corner can accommodate this slim tree. With a slender 30-inch diameter, there's plenty of room for Santa to pile presents underneath.
If your living room's already a little cramped, prop up a clever "half tree" against a free wall. You'll carve out more floor space and save time decorating as well.
No matter the climate, get the dreamy look of freshly fallen snow with a flocked tree. Cue up a little Bing Crosby, and all of your Christmases will be white.
Petite saplings can make quite the impact with some creative decorating ideas. Pop it on a cake stand, basket or crate to gain a few extra inches.
Yep, that's right—black Christmas trees are actually a thing, and it's oh-so-cool. Go with this untraditional choice, and you'll have the perfect canvas for Halloween decorations in October, too.
Take a trip back to the '60s with an unapologetically pink tree. How can you not smile with that in the room?
