‘Half’ Christmas trees are perfect for people who hate decorating the wall side

Hammacher Schlemmer

Do you struggle every year trying to figure out how or if you should decorate the backside of your family’s Christmas tree?

Every year, I tell my husband I wish we would just leave the branches off of half the tree so we could easily put it in the corner. As it is, we don’t put a lot of ornaments on that side because no one can really see them. My poor husband, wonderful man that he is, usually gives me a funny look because I’m sure he wonders, “That’s crazy! Who really does something like that?”

Well, it turns out I’m not alone in my thinking. You can now find “half” artificial Christmas trees for sale! Maybe I’m not so crazy after all.

OK, at first glance, The Against The Wall Christmas Tree from Hammacher Schlemmer may look like something Lucy would yell at Charlie Brown for picking out at the tree lot. But, like good ‘Ol Charlie, you have to look deeper to see this tree’s full potential.

Put it up against a wall, give it full trimming for the holidays and it transforms into something pretty spectacular! Flat-backed trees like these work well for smaller living areas.
