December is just around the corner and the festive season has already begun in earnest. If you're itching to get your Christmas tree and decorations up already, now is the best time to bag yourself one of the best artificial Christmas trees.
Beyond beauty buys and gift prep, us early bird Christmas fanatics (who won't rest until the whole house looks like Santa's grotto) know that if we want to get our homes looking festive pre-December then artificial decorations are the way to go. Because let's be honest, nobody wants a dried and withered tree come Christmas day.
Arguably a more sustainable option, a good-quality artificial tree can last up to ten years when stored properly, plus, if you're looking for that perfect, bushy pyramid-style tree, you can't get better than one of our picks.
Where can you invest in the best artificial Christmas trees? There are endless options on sites from Wayfair and The White Company to Argos.

But mainly, you can buy one online now and have it delivered right to your door. Then all you need to complete the look are some warm-white fairy lights, and your tree will be festive glow ready faster than you can say "pass the Baileys"...
