How to choose the perfect Christmas tree!

It's nearly Christmas!

What do you mean it's still a while away?

Oh, don’t be such a Grinch... It makes no difference! It is never too early to begin decorating your home and getting into the "Christmassy" spirit.

I believe we can all agree that the 'pièce de résistance' of the entire set of decorations is none other than the Christmas tree itself, so it is essential that we all select one that meets our needs and fits our space. To find the best one, you might need to consider aspects such as: the type of tree, height, sustainability, and, of course, price.

There are two kinds of Christmas trees: real trees and artificial trees, each of which serves a different purpose.

Choosing the perfect Real Christmas Tree:

Nothing beats the look and smell of a real tree, which blends in so well with other seasonal aromas around the house. We would recommend getting a potted tree rather than a cut tree because it is not only better for the environment, but it also makes the experience more enjoyable because it can oxygenate the air around the house and will not wilt away after a few weeks. There are numerous companies in The Netherlands that rent Christmas trees and replant them to grow until the following year, such as https://adopteereenkerstboom.nl !

However, one major disadvantage of purchasing a real tree is that they are heavy and difficult to install; however, do not worry, we have a solution for that as well!

Choosing the perfect Artificial Christmas tree

For those who enjoy the availability and wide range of styles and are looking for a tree that could stand out from the traditional styles, artificial Christmas trees are for you! A plastic Christmas tree is an excellent long-term investment because it can be stored and reused for many years to come. These trees can vary in color, size, and shape, allowing for more creativity with the style of decorations on them! Many artificial trees come pre-lit with fairy lights already embedded in the branches or even with realistic-looking snow sprinkled on top, which can save you time and effort whilst still looking amazing! - Plus there will be no fallen needles or small bugs to clean up!

The most common types of fake trees are made out of PVC, which is a budget-friendly option but may appear unrealistic due to the flatness of the needles. However, some artificial trees can also be made out of PE plastic, which is slightly more expensive but provides a more 3D and realistic look.

Choosing the perfect size

The size of your tree is heavily influenced by the space you intend to decorate. For example, if you don't have that much space to spare, you could get a mini-sized tree that can easily fit on a table, or on the contrary, if you have high ceilings, you could get a tree that is slightly taller than average- psstt you might need a lot of NearOnes to help you install that one!
