Save some time and buy an upright Christmas tree bag! Not only does it slash the taking it down time in half, it also allows you to be semi-prepared for next Christmas as you don't have to assemble it again.

The three reinforced handles make moving this container around easy work and the design means that the base of the tree is compressed when not in use, for space-saving storage. Just be warned – the stand isn't included, so you'll have to buy this separately.

Easily transport and store your Christmas tree season after season with this bag from the holiday homeware experts, Balsam Hill. Crafted from durable materials, this 100% polyester bag comes in three sizes and features a rolling stand to simplify the storage process.

All you have to do is simply remove all of your festive decorations from your tree, detach and place the top tree section in a special compartment, and pull up the collapsible bag over the tree. We think it looks rather like a fashionable quilted overcoat! Helpfully, it comes with a super-sturdy metal stand, so it won't tumble over in the attic, garage, or basement.


What is the best way to store an artificial Christmas tree?

There are two parts to successfully storing your artificial Christmas tree - disassembling the tree and storing the sections. Here, Mac Harman, CEO of Balsam Hill explains the 2-part trick to a tidy fir for the year after.

Disassembling your tree

Step one: Detach the lights
For non-Easy Plug™ trees, detach the light connections between the sections. If your tree is not pre-lit, unstring the lights and store them separately.

Step two: Compress the branches
Use both hands to compress the foliage on each branch before detaching the section. Then, flip the tree section over and squeeze the branches together.

Step three: Secure with a ribbon
For easier handling, tie a ribbon or cord around the section to secure the branches.

Storing the tree sections

Step one: Prepare the Christmas tree storage bag(s)
Unzip and open the storage bags that came with your tree.

Step two: Store the Sections
Position the sections in the bag(s) as if they were a pair of shoes in a box, with the pole in the centre. For larger trees, place the odd-numbered sections in one bag, and the even-numbered in the other.

Step three: Seal the bag
Zip up the bag to keep out dust and insects.

How to bag a Christmas tree?

'The TreeKeeper bag tree storage system attaches to your existing tree stand and acts like a simple tree skirt during the holiday season,' says Jared Hendricks, CEO, TreeKeeper.

'When the holidays are over, open the tree skirt, grab the built-in handles, and pull upward. The TreeKeeper compresses your hinged tree and gets it ready for storage in minutes!

'After you've compressed your tree, it's easy to pick it up and move to a closet, basement, or garage. With the convenient and sturdy side handles, you can even hang it up in the garage next to the bicycles. When it's that time of year again, grab your tree from storage, unfasten the top zippers and straps, pull down the bag and your tree is ready to decorate.'

 CHRISTINA CHRYSOSTOMOU: DIGITAL WRITER, REALHOMES.COM

The newest addition to the team, I am a Digital Writer at Realhomes.com and joined the team in June 2021.

Living in close proximity to Epping Forest, I am spoiled for choice with lush green spaces and also have a lovely English garden complete with a floral melange of roses, lavender, jasmine and an apple tree in my 2-bed ground floor maisonette.


My interior style is…

Quite the juxtaposition, my home is a 'coordinated hodgepodge' of the latest interior styles. However, featuring lots of white and grey decor, oak doors throughout and an upcycled rustic shelf made from a ladder and two wooden planks, the Scandi Chic trend dominates my home.

I'm also a massive fan of multi-functional broken plan design. My living room space is an office by day and social space to relax on evenings and weekends.


My next project...

I love entertaining family and friends and often extend my hospitality to include an overnight stay. So my next project would be to renovate our guest room with a boutique hotel style scheme to create a luxe-looking space.


My lust list...

Appearances are everything in Essex, so a huge statement floor length mirror is on the list! Failing that, a lovely vintage Persian rug would also add some color and culture to my sitting room space. Having been stuck indoors during lockdown, I'm a woman consumed by wanderlust. 

So all in all, I think the real answer is - a blank checkbook?


Special interests:

I'm a sucker for high street and designer brand collaborations. I think they are a great way of getting your hands on a statement piece at an entry-level price.
