Halloween hasn’t even arrived yet, but we’re already thinking ahead to Christmas.
We can’t wait to deck the halls and put the star on top of the tree.
But there’s one thing we’re not particularly looking forward to – decorating the back of the Christmas tree.
It might be lazy of us, but stringing the lights all the way around and hanging baubles in places where no one can even see them just doesn’t seem worth the hassle.
Thankfully it seems there’s a way we can all forgo the faff this year, reports The Daily Star.
According to the publication you can now buy half Christmas trees.
The reduced sizes trees will not only save you effort – but money and space as well.
The festive firs would be ideal for homes that are a little on the small side and look great pushed up against a wall.
High-end stores like Hammacher Schlemmer and Balsam Hill are stocking the half trees – but you can get them on a budget too.
Very, eBay and Christmas Tree World are selling the Christmas trees for less than £50.
The Very one will cost you just £39.99.
The product description reads: “This may look like a regular Christmas tree, but it’s been cleverly designed so that one side is completely flat, so no matter how limited your space might be, you and your family can still enjoy the magic of having a tree in your home.
“Standing an impressive 6ft tall and featuring 511 tips for a lush look, you can stand it flat against the wall to save on valuable floor space… it also means you don’t have to worry about any of your favourite decorations being out of sight at the back!”
The website adds: “It comes complete with a folding metal stand, and its hinged branches mean it’s easier to get into the loft or garage when the festive season is over.”
The product has been rated four stars on the website and shoppers have left a number of rave reviews.
One person said: “I bought this Christmas tree as my old one just didn’t fit in my new home. It was so big and I needed something that didn’t take up to much space.
“This tree is perfect – it nice and bushy and as it’s half a tree it goes up to the wall so looks great without sticking out too far.
“It takes half the time to get it up and ready. I’m really happy with it.”
Another wrote: “Another said: “I bought this a week ago and so pleased with it looks just like a full tree.”
And a third added: “Perfect tree. Fits in my small room in the corner. Once the decorations are on it looks great.”
