Everyone cue their best Mariah Carey voice because…it’s hereee. We mean Christmas, of course, and now that Thanksgiving has come and gone (and the leftovers are dwindling), it’s time to shift your attention from turkey to trees. And lucky for you, Balsam Hill is offering up to 50 percent off its artificial Christmas tree selection for Cyber Monday 2022, plus free shipping with every order. 

We know, we know; an artificial tree kind of feels like cheating. But we have to admit: This retailer’s selection is giving those cheap, plastic iterations a run for their money (and if you don’t believe us, you can order a preview kit, which will be credited to your tree purchase). However, with trees that are up to half off right now, we recommend you skip the sampling and start adding to cart before the deals end at midnight tonight. So below, find five top-rated trees in every style that’ll last season after season (because vacuuming pine needles is one thing we could do *without* this year). 

How to Decorate a Christmas Tree That Rivals Anything You've Seen on Pinterest or Instagram

Looking for something as realistic as possible? This classic blue spruce is the ticket. Not only is it available in a range of sizes—from 4.5-foot to 7.5-foot to 15-foot—but it also features more than 886 needles in blue-green and silvery hues, which are complemented by light brown-tinted stems for added depth. One reviewer raves: “This is the most realistic tree I have ever seen. It looks exactly like the Blue Spruce in my front yard. It is super simple to assemble and once all the [branches] adjusted, it was perfect. I was totally amazed at how easy it was to take down and the storage bag is a perfect fit.” Oh, and did we mention that it’s available in five different twinkly light options that you can control from an app on your phone?

With size options that range from 4.5 feet to 15 feet, this option is perfect for studio apartments and sprawling farmhouses alike. Its narrow shape pulls inspiration from the Berkshire Mountains, where the tiered branch structure forms a slender silhouette that won’t overwhelm the space. “I wanted a narrow tree to fit our small space and [and] the 7.5- foot [size] is perfect, especially since the tree is narrow at the bottom…The number of branch tips is perfect. It looks full, but there is still space to tuck in our ornaments… The needles look natural and are not monotoned which gives the tree depth,” writes one reviewer. Not to mention that it’s also available in an unlit option (so feel free to pair it with your favorite brass string lights this year).

Inspired by the White Spruces across New England and Canada, this option is so realistic, one reviewer says, “every single person that sees it walks up to it to touch the branches and see if it is real.” Not only does it feature upward-sloping branches that are perfect for hanging ornaments, but it comes in 10 size options—from 4.5-foot to 9-foot to 15-foot—with four lighting options that can be controlled by an app on your phone (and an unlit option if you’d prefer to DIY). Plus, another reviewer adds: “We are truly impressed with the quality, ease of assembly, light features and the reality of [this] tree. It is absolutely the most realistic artificial tree I have ever seen. The whole experience of set up was so easy, [it even came with] two sizes of gloves for fluffing branches, a bag for storage and a tool storage case.”

Crafted with frosted foliage to mimic a snowy winter day, this faux Fraser fir echoes the charm of the quiet North Carolina forests. Plus, aside from its two-toned green needles and coated tips, we love how this one is available in both clear and colorful light options (which includes a remote to adjust the LED colors and switch lights on/off). One reviewer writes: “I love that I can choose the [color] of lights I want based on mood or even time of day (or light in the room). The tree was delivered quickly. It was easy to set up. There is quite a bit of ‘snow’ that falls off when handling, but I expected that. I think this tree will last me a very long time.”

Finally, a compact option for minimalists who like to keep the tree simple. This one takes inspiration from mountain evergreens, where its slim profile and open spaces are sparse by design. Not to mention that it’s available in sizes ranging from 4.5 feet to 12 feet—so it can work in any space—and it features pre-fluffed memory wire branches that fan into place upon unboxing for easy setup. “For starters, the tree shipped and arrived quickly in perfect condition. There is virtually no assembly required for the 4.5-foot option—you just have [to] stand the tree on the base, shape the branches a little and plug it in. Once it was decorated, it was absolutely adorable! It is perfect for a minimalist look, a small space or or simple elegance,” writes one reviewer.
