The best faux Christmas trees of 2021

Still on the hunt for the perfect artificial Christmas tree? Here are our favourite offerings from the shops this year...

No festive front door should be without a wreath. Florist Yolly has used dried hydrangea heads and dried hops and mixed them with fir and berries. The subtle addition of a bauble, a robin and some glittery leaf decorations keeps it natural and adds a bit of fun.


Small but mighty

If you can’t fit a 6 foot tree in your living room, opt for a smaller tabletop tree to retain that festive spirit. Potted Sparkle Porch Christmas Tree, £24.99, The Range. Buy it now.
