We've put together a helpful guide on the many items we sell in this blog post to assist you in determining which ones will work in your house in Christmas 2023 out of the various Xmas trees and festive figures available.

Fibre Optic Christmas Tree

Fibre Optic Christmas Trees

The artificial Christmas trees of the trees are Fibre Optic Christmas Trees. These trees are an example of an affordable option of Christmas décor that stands out from everything you have seen because no additional lights are required.

With the use of the latest LED technology instead of traditional halogen, the lights on these trendy trees are significantly more cost and energy effective than classic Christmas bulbs. This type of modern indoor lighting gives these trees such a heavenly ethereal glow, which is primarily due to the light coming from the tree itself rather than standard Christmas lights wrapped around the tree. A lot of people adore this bright and luminous appearance as it adds a touch of joy to the home over the festive period.

Because of their appealing and unique illuminations, fibre optic Christmas trees have made in various colours besides the conventional green. Examples of these fun tree colours include blue, white, and gold.

Another feature to keep in mind is lighting possibilities, since the lights and optics on these trees come in loads of different colours. You can select a lighting function to suit your tastes/needs on some of them, too.

They are also available in a range of shapes and sizes to suit every type of room in the home, plus have a longer lifespan than real Christmas trees.

Artificial Christmas Tree

Artificial Christmas Trees

The endless discussion when it comes to choosing a Christmas tree is whether to choose a real or artificial one. We all look forward to decorating the tree every year, so we want to be sure we're picking the right one.

Nowadays, there are many different varieties of artificial trees available, and here at Garden Trends, we are delighted to provide customers with a huge selection of sizes, styles, and colours to meet their needs. From a 4 footer to a 7 foot beauty, your options are endless. The most popular model is a 7ft, which fits most living rooms beautifully and is large enough to take up plenty of space without being intrusive. The 4ft, meanwhile, is a better choice if you have young children because it will a lot easier for them to decorate.

Compared to actual trees, artificial trees are more economical. They are typically less expensive to purchase initially, saving you money you may use for other essential Christmas items (e.g. gifts, food). They will live a lot longer than their real-life equivalent as well.

Because they are flame retardant, artificial trees are considerably safer to have around the house than real ones. They also need no care and maintenance, so you don't need to worry about watering it on a regular basis.

In comparison to their natural counterparts, artificial trees make hardly any mess, which means you won't need to hoover up any loose branches.

 Christmas String Lights

Star light, star bright! With our LED String Christmas Lights, you can produce an eye-catching seasonal display indoors or outdoors. LED String Christmas Lights are quickly becoming a popular alternative for homeowners.

The significant decrease in the use of energy they offer is an example of one of their benefits. In addition, they cost less than their counterparts and come in any colour, making them an affordable alternative to coloured traditional Christmas lights.

Their extraordinary longevity and endurance is another positive feature. But, the end result is a lot more intense shade as opposed to the faint white tone provided by standard lights. 

Christmas Wreaths

Christmas Wreaths

While many people enjoy the rustic appeal that natural ingredients like pine cones and holly berries lend to a wreath, Artificial Christmas Wreaths are frequently used to make a warm welcome display on your front door, but they're also lovely for enhancing your mantelpiece or making a festive table centrepiece to enjoy while having Christmas dinner. They have a number of more advantages that have made them popular.

The fact that Artificial Christmas Wreaths are more long-lasting than their natural counterparts is a notable benefit. Without having to worrying about buying a new one every year, you can create a variety of festive styles, from classic to modern, with an artificial Xmas wreath. Wreaths made of natural materials are susceptible to withering out, losing needles or leaves, and needing to be replaced often. Artificial wreaths, on the other hand, made from materials like Polyester are more durable.

The affordability of artificial Christmas wreaths is another advantage. Because of the expense of materials and manual design, natural wreaths tend to be more expensive; however, artificial ones can be found for a much lower price.

Artificial wreaths are practical for busy families since they require less maintenance. It might be time-consuming to regularly water natural wreaths to keep them from drying out. Furthermore, falling needles or leaves can make a mess that is difficult to clean up. Artificial ones won't go bad during the festive period and won't need any watering or other regular care.
