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.

M&S has come up with an ingenious tree that's specially shaped to fit snugly into the corner of a room so you can have all the festive style of a standard 6ft tree without losing lots of space.

For those with a large room or high ceilings who like the winter wonderland look, this spectacular 7ft Snowstorm Christmas tree, currently half price, is ideal.

Add a bit of camp to your Christmas with this 2ft pink tree with bendy branches. Great for a child's bedroom or just to add a bit of gaiety to your decor.

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.
