Shop the best artificial Christmas trees of 2023 on sale before Black Friday

TikTok’s latest holiday obsession is artificial remote-controlled Christmas trees — and we can’t say we’re mad about it. I mean, who doesn’t want to watch a personal light show at the click of a button?

While the Home Depot viral tree is currently out of stock, there are still plenty of tempting early Black Friday deals from retailers like Balsam Hill, Frontgate, Macy’s, and more.

So, why go faux? While heading to the farm to select your favorite conifer can be a merry tradition, some people are ready to retire their axes. Picking out an artificial plant can save time and money, a worthy investment ahead of the all-the-hoorah of the holidays. Not to mention, there’s no daily sap and pine-needle clean up necessary!

With an artificial Christmas tree, you can skip the hassle and prop up your tree, needle-free year after year. Artificial Christmas trees also come in a range of shapes and sizes, which makes for a just as jolly time of picking out your favorite.

After you purchase your perfect pine, consider taking a look at some of the best ornaments, decor, and lights to complete the rest of your holiday checklist. And don’t forget to check out the rest of our early Black Friday coverage for all those gifts to stuff below the tree.
