    Traditional Christmas trees

    These trees are just like the real thing - except they won't droop or shed pine needles! Once it's put up, all you need to do is add some decorations.

    Snowy Christmas trees

    Just like they've been plucked from a frosted forest, these trees are sure to add to the festive feel.

    Some feature berries and pine cones subtly nested amongst the branches, while others have snow tipped branches straight from a wintery wonderland.

    Space saving trees

    Slimline or pencil Christmas trees, are an excellent choice if you're a little short on space or need to squeeze your tree into a corner. They tend to be tall, giving you plenty of room to tuck-in decorations - meaning you lose out on none of the festive feel.

    Half size wall trees sit flush to the wall, for even smarter space saving.

    A twig Christmas tree, on the other hand, is very on-trend and the perfect fit for a Scandi inspired home theme.

      Pet friendly trees

      Keep decorations out of reach of little hands and paws with a half tree or upside-down tree.

      Half trees have a long thin trunk and triangular shape on top, giving you plenty of space for decorations, without the worry of a tumbling tree. An upside-down tree has the tip at the bottom - and is sure to catch Santa's eye on Christmas Eve!

        Outdoor and mini Christmas trees

        For when one tree is not enough... We have a wide selection of mini Christmas trees and outdoor decorations, perfect for scattering festive spirit throughout your home.

        How to decorate a Christmas tree

        Got your tree? Here's our step by step guide to the fun bit... decorating it!

          Step 1 - Add a Christmas tree skirt

          With your tree up, the first thing to do is add a Christmas tree skirt to hide the base. You could do this at the end, at the risk of toppling the tree and knocking off your carefully placed decorations.

          Step 2 - Light up your tree

          Lights before decorations is the golden rule. The easiest way to start from the top and slowly wind your way down the tree, nestling your lights in the branches so they don’t fall out. Using last year’s lights? Be sure to check they still work!

          Step 3 - Put baubles to branches

          Lights check, baubles check. Hang the biggest ones that are key to your theme first and try to spread them out evenly across the tree.

          Step 4 - Tinsel time

          Intertwine your tinsel evenly around the lights and baubles, leaving plenty of gaps for small decorations and baubles. Similar to lights, it’s best to start at the top and weave your way down to the bottom branches.

            Step 5 - Extra decorations

            Think trinkets, chocolates and everything else. The most important part of this step is to take a break and eat some of the chocolates before you carry on. Ssshh, we won’t tell.

            Step 6 - The tree topper

            The last and most important decoration is what goes on top of the tree. Go classic with a Christmas angel or star, or choose a festive favourite like Santa or Rudolph.

              Step 7 - The presents

              Hmm, are we missing something? The presents of course! Pre-wrap some early gifts to fill that unloved space under the tree to complete your decorations.
