Where to buy a real Christmas tree - from Home Bargains and IKEA to The Range

With just over 30 sleeps until Christmas, it's officially that time of year to put up the Christmas tree.

From gifts for your loved ones, to making sure that you have all the decorations to begin your festive displays as soon as December 1 hits, you definitely need to be ready.

That means it's also time to begin thinking about your Christmas tree - if you haven't already - and we have all the information you need if you're looking for a real one this year.

While an artificial tree can be a more convenient option for many households, there is something rather magical about having a real Christmas tree in your home. From the scent of fresh pine needles to its fuller shape, there are many upsides to choosing the real deal for the festive season.

If you are on the hunt for a real tree this year, then you're in luck, as quite a few retailers have begun to stock them on their shelves for eager shoppers to get in before December officially hits.

Most of the stores are stocking the classic Scottish Nordmann Fir, which has become an increasingly popular choice due to its bushy shape and softer pine needles.

If you're wondering what retailers on the high-street are stocking real Christmas trees and what types, then we have all the information that you need.
