It’s officially October, which means it’s practically almost Christmas! Jokes aside… If you’re planning to get a new Christmas tree for the upcoming holiday season, between you and me, now is the time to do it! Stock and shipping times are unexpected these days, so if you want to have it up and decorated for the season, this is your window to prepare. While I love the smell and charm of a real tree, I’m not a fan of the mess. So, I haven’t had a real tree since I was maybe 6 years old. Faux is for me! For your convenience, we rounded up a bunch of artificial Christmas trees, from traditional to flocked, full to sparse, and everything in between.

Traditional Artificial Christmas Trees

Year after year, this Christmas tree is a fan favorite, which also happens to be my favorite. It looked so charming in our bonus room, tied in bows with the choo-choo train below. Over the years, it has lived with us in three homes, and I hope we have it for years to come. Christmas 2020, it sat proudly in the formal dining room, and I’m still not over it. And, of course, for Christmas 2018, it was the main tree in our cozy living room. Here’s a round-up of traditional artificial Christmas trees I think you’ll love, including some pre-lit!

Flocked Christmas Trees

I just think there’s nothing more wintery than a flocked tree. You can certainly DIY the flocked look yourself (though it can be super messy), OR you can get one of these stunners.

What do you think?


    Hello, CLJ team.. thanks for the amazing recommendations. i was wondering if you have any suggestions on Balsam hill Christmas trees or trees which look most realistic (9ft)

  2. Kim says:

    Tried to leave a comment under the post “16 Top Amazon Products I swear by” but the post did not have the comment section. I am super interested in purchasing the bar stools like the ones you have in your beautiful kitchen, but I would like to know if it is comfortable to sit on for long periods of time. Thanks for responding.

    • Trying to get our comment section fixed! The stools have a really easy adjustable height and swivel and I’d say for a hard surface stool they’re surprisingly comfy.

    Great job! Thank you for the fantastic list of Christmas trees that you put together. The last time that I ordered a tree it took me a long time sorting through different ones.

  4. Sarah says:

    Just purchased the tree that you have in your bonus room on a great close out deal from Wayfair! Thanks for the recommendation 😊

    What lights do you like to use with this tree? Would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks!
