Artificial or Live? What type of Christmas tree should you choose?
Should you go for a live Christmas tree or an artificial one? One thing for sure is that a Christmas Tree can really only be used during Christmas unless you are the type of person who leaves it all year round. (no one’s judging). So which type of Christmas Tree should you actually get? Here are some factors of both to help with your decision.
Artificial Christmas Tree
Live Christmas Tree
|Affordable. You can easily get one under $50 online.
Some may even come decorated which saves a lot of time and money.
|Pricey. The price range of a natural Christmas Tree can range from $200 to $400! And the price that you are paying does not include decorations as well.|
|Practically lasts forever. If you take care of it, it can last you multiple Christmases. Not to mention that the colors do not fade!||Lasts only one Christmas. By the time next Christmas comes, the tree would be so dry and discolored that it would fit as being firewood.|
An Artificial Christmas Tree already sounds like a good deal, but…
Silhouette, Texture, and Smell.
|Artificial. Artificial trees are really skinny and appear less dense. It has a plastic texture to it and you can already guess the only kind of smell it has. (who knows the extent of what it could smell like…)||Refreshing. If you love the smell of Christmas in the winter. I would definitely go for the Live Christmas Tree. Not to add that they are also really dense and bushy. The rich lingering scent of pine, spruce or fir naturally wafts through your home, making every corner feel like it’s Christmas.|
If you are on a budget and just want to get a Christmas tree for the sake of Christmas, Artificial is definitely for you.
However, if aesthetics are your kind of thing and Christmas is all about the sensations and vibes, investing in a bushy and aromatic Live Christmas tree will definitely be a great investment. At Prince, we believe that a Christmas Tree is fundamental and serves as the focal point that your home needs every Christmas. Having a Natural Christmas Tree right in the comfort of your own home will definitely make Christmas a magical evening. Why enjoy a lively Christmas with something fake and dull when you can enjoy Christmas as if you were right in the North Pole, celebrating right in Santa’s home. Now, who wouldn’t love that?
