Christmas trees – our pick of the best

11 images

Nothing says Christmas is on its way quite like the tradition of putting up the Christmas tree. Forget vacuuming up pine needles, it’s far easier to go artificial – and with so many great realistic designs that can last you a good many years, we think it’s all the better to fake it. The interesting new designs for 2016, all hoping to be the next big thing, are the dancing tree from John Lewis; the musical tree from B&Q and the ultra slim space-saving tree from Wilko – all well worth checking out.

To keep things more traditional choose a realistic tall fir for a country living room or opt for a contemporary timber design for an understated modern home. If you’re happy to be bold and try some colour, choose from the latest frosty white to glamorous Champagne gold trees. Whatever your style, we’ve got it covered with our pick of the best!

Be inspired to choose one of these fabulous trees as the starting point for your Christmas decorating?
