Fed up with buying pretty tree decorations that get lost in full-on foliage? Try this minimalist 6ft woodland tree with a beautiful Scandinavian feel.

If you find traditional trees too twee, this 6ft contemporary Snowy Paper Pine Tree should hit the mark. It has a thin trunk with a full-bodied top and artificial snow.
5. Marks & Spencer

Can't bear the thought of tangled lights and broken baubles? Check out this 6ft pop-up, pre-decorated and pre-lit Carousel tree that fits into the smallest of rooms.
10. Lakeland

Ideal as a festive centrepiece or on a sideboard, this mini everlasting "pine" tree has fold-out branches to decorate. It certainly won't break the bank and has a hessian base.
