It pays to invest in anything that eases stress during the ramp-up to December 25th. The inventions for taming mounting late November to-do lists run the gambit of nationwide food delivery to swift gift wrap cutters — but with one swift purchase “Get the Tree,” “Set Up the Tree” and “Decorate the Tree” can all be crossed off.
A 6 foot 6-inch pre-lit tree from the National Tree Company is available for 53% off today on Amazon, and will arrive before December 1st, leaving plenty of time for decorating and holiday hosting.

National Tree Company Pre-Lit Dunhill Fir Christmas Tree
Artificial trees are controversial, with many still clinging to the appeal of that fresh pine scent wafting through the house as Will Ferrel’s “Elf” streams (and screams) in the background. Fresh-cut Christmas trees are special, but their allure is starting to mirror that of a manual gear change on a car. Sure, it’s charming, but as the decades pass they’ve shifted from the default to the traditional preference of a stalwart minority. There are easier ways to get to the same destination.
This artificial Dunhill Fir from the National Tree Company comes with 650 white lights that come pre-strung on the tree for eliminating yet another task. The tree’s branches are hinged so they drop down upon setup and can be folded up again for convenient storage.
This tree comes in four heights — 6 feet 6 inches, 7 feet, 7 feet 6 inches, and 9 feet — and is made with hypo-allergenic and fire-resistant needles. The bulbs are individually replaceable, and if one goes out the rest stay lit. It also comes with a stand with a minimal frame that can be easily covered with a tree skirt or blanket.
