If your home has little ones or furry friends, you've likely stressed come Christmastime about the risks of ornaments breaking or being ingested. (Or, you know, the tree being knocked over entirely.)

For years, we've personally addressed this worry by hanging any delicate and/or delicious-looking ornaments on upper branches. But why do that when you can buy a severed Christmas tree and save yourself the trouble? Meet the "half tree"—an artificial evergreen that clocks in at 6 feet tall—but yep, only its top portion has "foliage." This marvel of modern-day problem-solving can be yours for $37, thanks to the U.K. retailer Argos

Does it look a bit tragic? Yuh-huh. Do we give it an A for effort? Absolutely.
