Now it's December, it's officially okay to talk about Christmas, which means – rejoice! – we can finally think about putting up the tree without too much judgement from the neighbours, and embrace the most magical of seasons!
But before you set off to your nearest Christmas tree farm, we have something to tell you: B&Q sell a variety of real and fake Christmas trees, and they're pretty good. They cater to all tastes and ceiling heights, and some of the faux ones come pre-lit for the particularly lazy (that's us, then). And, in typical B&Q fashion, they're great value for money, too.
We've listed our pick of the best trees that we think would look brilliant all done up in your living room/dining room/kitchen/the bedroom of your house/rented flat – which means you don't even have to leave your sofa to shop. Result! After that, check out our ideas for decorating your Christmas tree – happy holidays indeed!
