There are many stores around the web that sell artificial Christmas trees, but these 3 are my favorites:

  • Walmart  – Lots of choice and their prices are usually the lowest or compatible with Amazon’s.
  • Amazon – Again lots of fake Christmas trees and excellent customer service.

Fake Christmas Tree Buying Tips

Start with your own preferences and write them down. What qualities are you looking for in a Christmas tree?

For example: I hate stringing lights on the tree, so a pre-lit Christmas tree would be on the top of my list.

Other qualities you might want to consider:

  • LED vs traditional lights
  • Clear white vs multi-color lights.
  • Color of the tree
  • branches that are strong enough to carry heavy ornaments
  • Or maybe you want an unlit Christmas tree
  • Etc.

Next consider the type of tree. Do you like a blue spruce, Fraser fir or perhaps something totally different like a pink Christmas tree or fiber optic one?

Check with the rest of your family for their preferences and come up with ideas for a Christmas tree you’ll all love.

Set a budget for the tree and stick to it.

You will save money when you’re not buying a new tree every year, but that does not mean you should go overboard.

There are some very good trees for sale right now that have excellent buyer feedback, but are still very affordable!

Now you have all the info you need to buy the best artificial Christmas tree, so you can start shopping!
