Psychologists have confirmed that decorating for Christmas early may make you happier, so I'd say that decorating for Christmas early with a giant, rainbow tree will make you positively euphoric.
The Treetopia Color Burst Rainbow Christmas Tree ($240) from Amazon isn't cheap, but at seven feet tall and nearly four feet wide, it will be a vibrant sight to behold this holiday season.
And if you are torn on getting a real versus fake option this year, well, this artificial tree should bring that debate to a screeching halt. There's virtually no competing with the 1,200 bendable branch tips of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, . . . you get the idea. (Sorry, Fraser fir, but that fresh pine scent only lasts so long.)
It's even a win for time-strapped parents who can only fathom getting out so many breakable boxes of ornaments around their unpredictable toddlers. The Amazon product description itself promises a set-it-and-forget-it approach: "Featuring vibrant, rainbow-colored PVC needles, this unlit Christmas tree has a full shape and makes for a cheerful display even without ornaments."
Yes, it will set you back, but considering you can use it year after year, it's not a bad deal. Plus, it comes complete with a white stand and has free shipping. So, if you've got a rainbow-obsessed kiddo like I do, there's no question that it will be the most show-stopping tree in the neighborhood.
