Trees and Accessories Buying Guide

Holiday trees and accessories are probably the top staple of seasonal decorating. They often set the tone for the rest of the home -- inside and out -- and establish a focal point, too. Luckily, having more than one tree in the home at Christmastime is a welcome practice. Here's how to get started on finding your perfect trees and accessories.

Types of Trees and Accessories

Types of Trees and Accessories

Whether your style is old-school retro or traditional country, there's a Christmas tree—or trees—and accessories styled and sized to fit your home. When it comes to trees, you can choose from real trees, artificial trees, and fiber-optic trees. To complete the package (and the convenience), check out tree skirts, tree stands, and tree storage. Take time to review all the types of trees and accessories available to make a purchase that rewards with beauty and style for years to come.

Real Trees

For those who prefer a real evergreen at Christmas, there are a variety of types and sizes available, from tabletop to two stories tall, from Scotch to Norfolk pine.

Artificial Trees

Artificial trees are also available in nearly every size imaginable, as well as a variety of needle and branch styles to mimic real tree species.

Product Features

There are so many product features available for trees and accessories. Want a white-flocked artificial tree with multicolor lights? How about a tree skirt that reflects a nontraditional color scheme? Choices abound, so to make a selection that works best for your home, your family, and your celebrations, consider the various product features. Those include size of tree and accessories, the inclusion of lights, the type of tree and accessories, and the style. Here's how to get started on your must-have list.

Size

From tree skirts to tree stands to the tree itself, size is a primary consideration. Starter artificial trees that fit an apartment can easily transition to a tabletop or bedroom in a larger house.

Lights

Some trees are pre-lit, while other artificial varieties are unlit. What you choose depends on whether you'll be happy maintaining the same lights from year to year or prefer to change the scheme.

Type

Artificial and fiber-optic trees differ on branch and needle type, which determines how they are assembled and stored. Tree stands and tree skirts may be made of different materials, too, which affects their look and performance.

Style

Trees and accessories can be found in virtually every style, from clean-lined and contemporary to traditional and country.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

As with any holiday decorating purchase, certain considerations will affect how well the item fits into your plans and budget. Review carefully the assembly of trees and accessories, as well as storage in the off-season. How you care for your trees and accessories will affect your enjoyment, and cost is certainly a factor, too. Use this guide to reviewing all the buying considerations as you choose trees and accessories for your home and family.

Cost

The size, ornamentation, and style of trees and accessories all affect the cost. Relatively inexpensive artificial trees are typically small and simple; ornate tree skirts will be expensive.

Care

Artificial and fiber-optic trees need to be stored in a dry location that's protected from sunlight. Some items, such as tree skirts, may need delicate care, so review how to clean items before making a purchase.

Storage

Trees present the most difficulty when it comes to storage; those that can be disassembled easily may be more convenient. Items such as tree skirts and tree stands also need to be stored once the holidays are over.

Assembly

More complex artificial-tree creations are probably going to require more time and effort to assemble. Tree stands usually come in one piece or just a few pieces.
