Sick of hoovering up pesky pine needles? If you haven't got the patience for the real deal or simply don't have the space, why not opt instead for a more contemporary take on the traditional tree.
We've cast our beady eyes over a range of quirky decorative ideas that embody all the yuletide spirit of the Christmas tree and add a festive touch to your abode, without any of the hardship of setting it up, decorating it or having to deal with the upkeep.
From photo walls and drapes to foliage-free spruces and personalised murals, these have all the charm with none of the hard work. You can thank us later...
