You can save money on buying a new synthetic Christmas tree this year by choosing an unlit model from the online stores and using your existing lights.
When you go out and buy an artificial tree this year for the festive holiday, you may have noticed how much more realistic they have become from only a few years ago even when they don't have lights pre-installed.
These trees are getting so good that they look real even fairly close up when they are decorated so it's almost a wonder why anyone bothers getting a real tree any more.
Do You Need it to be Real?
Well, of course there is always the smell that is associated with a real tree and that is something you don't get even with the most realistic looking artificial ones. But perhaps the manufacturers are working on that very point. Who knows for sure?
But aside from the smell and maybe the feel when you are right up close, there is really little to tell them apart with some of the better quality models that are on sale in stores this year. Choosing an unlit one gives you a lot of scope to be artistic and creative when it comes to decorating it.
