Choosing the right Christmas tree is a crucial part of the season's festivities and it's a big decision. With so many trees to choose from, it's hard to know where to start. Do you go for the classic evergreen or something slightly more... fluorescent? Will it clash with the decorations (if by some miracle you can remember where you packed them)?
Taobao offers a huge selection of trees in all shapes and sizes. Don't go trawling through them all, here are
some of our favourites.
There's no shame in being an unapologetic traditionalist come Christmas time. If you're after something understated and elegant, these medium-sized, almost realistic-looking (from afar, anyways) trees could be the way forward – anyone else smell the faint scent of pine? No? Just buy some pine-scented incense.

lots of smaller, perfect-for-cramped-apartments and desk-top trees. Granted, some of them look like
they've been semi-digested by one of Father Christmas’s reindeer, but there are a few winners in the bunch.

Maybe you're too busy to spend hours-on-end hunting down the perfect Christmas tree and the decorations to match – or maybe you just can't be bothered, no judgement here. If that's the case, a 'package' is what you need. These trees come with pre-picked decorations, so all you have to do is lob them on.
