It’s never too early to start decorating for the holidays — even science says so. Sadly, figuring out the right time to put up a real Christmas tree can get tricky, considering pine needle clean-up and the tree’s lifespan.

Luckily, there is a (cheap) solution for those of us who are in the holiday spirit early or simply love convenience. If you’re looking for low-maintenance décor without sacrificing the look and feel of a Christmas tree, you’ve got options!

We know they don't smell the same, but they still look great. So, here are three artificial Christmas tree deals up to 56 percent off.

The Classic

National Tree "Feel Real" Downswept Douglas Fir Tree, $196 (usually $254), Amazon

This classic “Feel-Real” 6.5-foot Downswept Douglas Fir imitation by the National Tree Company is 56 percent off right now and “extremely easy to put together,” said one reviewer. The artificial Fir is pre-strung with clear lights, so it won’t clash with any colorful decorations, and reviewers say the branches only take about 30 to 45 minutes to “fluff up” properly after assembly.
