Much as we love the pine-fresh smell of a real tree come Christmas, it can get pretty boring picking up dropping needles. Then there's the risk that your carefully decorated centre-piece will droop before the big day - gutting. Which is why we've scoured the shops for the best alternative trees.
Faux evergreens might be an easy trade-in, but with so many fun and stylish tree alternatives out there - why not try something different this year?
If you want something with all the grandeur of a classic Xmas tree but more sustainable, then try a Nordic wooden design, or opt for a printed design with the same stature but no decorating required - we like Bombus' designs which come in various prints from cartoon strip to maps and vintage florals. So there's something to suit every scheme.
Of your short on space? Then a trompe l'oeil-style wall hanging will give your living space instant Christmas vibes. Ikea's Vinter fabric with a life-size tree print is just £5 a metre. Try hanging fairy lights behind it for added festive cheer.
If you've got small hands to help then they'll love getting work on a build-it-yourself design like Kids On Roof's cute cardboard tree, which includes an angel and reindeer to sit at the foot of its branches.
Into your interiors? A minimalist design like John Lewis' light-up birch tree has style as well as stature at 8ft tall.
There really is a design for every scheme.
