Christmas 2021: The Ultimate Guide

Christmas comes but once a year, bringing cheer to billions of people around the world. For many, it’s a religious holiday to remember the humble and miraculous birth of Jesus Christ in a manger on a cold, evening night long ago in Bethlehem. For others, it’s a time to come together with family and friends in the deep of winter amongst glistening lights, delicious treats, and bountiful gifts.

Although Christmas can be magical without all the trimmings if you spend it with those you love, it certainly is a time to celebrate with good food, gifts, and festive decorations to set the perfect holiday spirit.

After a COVID Christmas in 2020 when many families found themselves separated, many of us are looking to make Christmas 2021 even more joyous than usual this year. In this Christmas 2021 Guide, we walk you through our favorite websites for curating the perfect Christmas for you and yours.

Choosing a Christmas Tree

Christmas HomeOn Christmas morn, families near and far gather under their Christmas trees to exchange gifts. Few symbols are more important to the modern American Christmas, so it makes sense that the debate of whether an artificial or real Christmas tree is better is so passionate.

 

Artificial or Real Tree?

For many, nothing can beat having a real Christmas tree for Christmas. Their evergreen fragrance brings people back to warm and cheerful Christmases past, and the trips to the tree lot to pick the perfect tree is a cherished family annual event.

For others, they prefer the convenience and low maintenance aspects of an artificial tree. It’s easy to find an artificial tree that is shaped exactly how you like, perhaps pre-lit, and whose needles will never drop onto the carpet year-after-year.

 

Choosing a Real Tree

If you’re looking for a real tree, make sure to view your tree from all angles to make sure it’s full and to your liking. Look for deep green colored trees, whose needles stay on the branch and whose trunk has a slight stickiness to it.

If you’re not sure which variety you might prefer, check out this helpful article detailing the most common evergreen tree varieties native to the United States.


Where to Buy Your Christmas Tree

Home Depot, Lowe's, and Bed Bath and Beyond have a huge selection of affordable artificial Christmas trees, and most Home Depot and Lowe’s locations do have real Christmas tree lots to hand-select your natural Christmas tree if you prefer.

However, if you’re looking for something specific, check out our following list of quality online providers of real and artificial Christmas trees.

 

Fast Growing Trees

For fresh evergreen trees cut and delivered straight to your home, check out Fast Growing Trees. Although they only offer smaller trees under six feet tall, they do guarantee that your tree will be extremely fresh with a classic shape, soft needles, and aromatic scent that will take you back to memories of Christmas mornings.

Crafted with care to ensure years of enjoyment, the trees are based on many different Christmas tree varieties from the Classic Blue Spruce to the pencil-thin Sonoma Slim tree, each with a different feel and personality.

 

King of Christmas

King of Christmas sells an abundant selection of handmade, artificial trees with a two-year warranty and free US shipping. If you like flocked trees with frosted, snow-crusted white branches, you should certainly check them out. They also have a wide range of green trees and unlit and lit trees, up to 15’ tall!

 

Hammacher Schlemmer

Mimicking the complex growth patterns of a freshly cut Noble Fir, Hammacher Schlemmer’s artificial trees are made to the highest quality standards and require minimal shaping. From tabletop trees to majestic 12-footers, you can find trees that are unlit or lit, slimmer or fuller, and various branch types starting under $200.
