Don’t get too absorbed in all the basic home deals happening right now. After all, there are decadent Cyber Monday Christmas tree deals happening that deserve your attention. The perfect tree will cost you (after all, you can use it for many, many years to come), but plenty of retailers are offering major savings on gorgeous trees, as well as tons of amazing ornaments, garlands, and other decor.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite artificial Christmas tree picks, many of which we’ve tested firsthand, from the Cyber Monday sales below and make this year your home’s merriest yet.
Feast your eyes on the most popular tree among Clever readers in 2022. The Balsam Hill Fraser Fir is a classic, and one of their best sellers. Seriously, if you closed your eyes and thought, Christmas tree, you’d probably be picturing something that looks just like this. You can save more than $500 off this tree if you shop while the sale lasts.
One great thing about Balsam Hill is their True Needle technology—which they use to ensure that the many different species of trees are as realistically depicted as possible. They also work with Twinkly, which makes the best, brightest, and most dependable lights that will last for seasons to come.
Our reviewer, Divya Viswanathan, had this to say about her new tree: “I’m totally obsessed with real Fraser Christmas trees, and let me tell you, this one blew me away. And can we talk about how full and perfectly shaped it is? It’s like the Christmas tree of my dreams. Plus, no stressing about overwatering or my kids making a mess. It’s a game-changer for our holiday setup, especially in our apartment with its unpredictable temperatures. So glad I went for it!”
Unlike other evergreens, a fir like this one will look darker and its needles—which come out of the sides of each branch rather than hugging it—appear longer and flatter, giving it a distinctive shape. While it’s pretty tall, what really stuck out to tester and SEO analyst, Stewart Fussell, about AllModern’s Dunhill fir was actually the width. “It was wider than I expected because I was paying more attention to the height when I purchased it,” Stewart said. “It looks so grand and thankfully, fits in my space just right.” While the multicolor light option Stewart reviewed for our best artificial Christmas tree testing isn’t currently available, you can purchase the clear light and 6.5-foot version on Amazon for over 50% off.
For a super full, super festive tree, this is the way to go during the Cyber Monday Christmas tree deals. All of the needles are made to look exactly like an actual Blue Spruce, and you can choose between different heights and light colors.
For a slimmer tree that can easily nestle in the small corners of a studio or one-bedroom apartment, try this Carolina Pine pre-lit Christmas tree. It’s got pinecones nestled within its branches to add an extra bit of holiday cheer. Plus, it’s 60% off.
This little Woodland Spruce looks super full and comes in several different heights and light colors. The hearty trees also come with easy light features that offer plug-ins in the tree’s trunk so that they aren’t noticeable.
The exact tree that our contributor DaVonne Bacchus reviewed is currently out of stock at Amazon (dare we say his enthusiastic review had something to do with that?) but the version with white lights is very much available—and 54% off right now. Same old Douglas fir charm with a little more pizazz. The megretailer is also promising fast delivery, depending where in the country you live, so you can have your tree well before the holiday arrives.
Channel your inner Kathy Hilton and go frosted. Choose from sizes ranging from 5.5—9 feet with this frosted Frasier Fir. All of the needles are crafted to look like a real tree and it’s perfectly full and durable. Plus, with the lights already activated, there’s one less step required for decorating the tree.
Maybe you want to inject a bit of humor with your holiday cheer, in which case you’re just the kind of person that this upside down Christmas tree is for. Made of a PVC material, this inverted design with a metal stand actually dates all the way back to the Middle Ages, when people in Central Europe would hang their trees from the ceiling. It’ll help you save space on your floor so you can pick up more gifts for underneath it. Under $75 at Target during their Cyber Monday sales, it’s a small price to pay for something different.
For a more full-sized option to serve as the centerpiece in your living room, then you’ll likely want to purchase the extremely lifelike Grandin Road Woodside tree. Contributor and tester Kristi Kellogg reported an absolutely hassle-free set-up and tree branch fluffing with this model, going on to rave about how truly high-quality it is. “The tree exceeded my expectations,” Kristi said. “It’s huge. It’s the largest tree fake tree I’ve ever seen, outside of the crazy large ones on display at places like Disneyland.”
While clear lights certainly feel more en vogue, you might prefer the playful whimsiness of multicolored lights over that warm white glow. Lucky for you, National Tree company (which already makes the Dunhil Fir artificial Christmas tree reviewed above) sells a lovely low-profile and compact Kingswood Fir tree with stylishly muted colored lights.

Another one of our favorite wreaths, this one is all about the classic touches. Pinecones, red berries and white lights, what more could you ask for?
Keep it minimalist with this streamlined option. You can leave it simple with the twinkly LED lights or dress it up with your favorite decorations.
Or, go for something totally unexpected. We like that the deep purple leaves on this wreath feel festive and on brand in a sort of goth way.
This set of six ornaments includes glass balls with gold, glittery paint designs. There are other corresponding ornaments that can be included in ornament sets going up to 70 pieces.
This comprehensive set includes 35 woodsy ornaments, including a squirrel with a fluffy tail, pinecones, and feather- and glitter-clad ornaments. They are all hand-painted and would make any tree or garland a bit more merry.
It’s not all trees on offer at the Balsam Hill Black Friday sale. If you are looking for the best tree storage bag to keep your tree spic and span all year long, this is it. You can choose between different sizes, but all of them feature a stand that rolls, as well as a full-size bag that is completely weatherproof.
