Honestly, what would we do without Amazon? Over the past few years, it has become the modern shopper’s one-stop-site for everything from clothes, to groceries, to books, to the latest tech gadgets, to … you get the picture, right?
As if it didn’t already feel like Amazon sold everything under the sun, the mega retailer is adding a new category to its roster: Christmas trees. And no, not those pre-lit, artificial ones every other store sells; we’re talking real, freshly chopped trees. Wow.
This holiday season, Amazon will be selling a range of seven-foot trees — think Norfolk pines and Douglas firs — that will be sent within 10 days of being chopped down. Amazon will send their trees without water so while they should still be fresh when they arrive, you’ll want to water ‘em as soon as possible.
So how much will it cost you? According to an Amazon holiday preview book, a seven-foot Fraser fir from North Carolina will set you back $115, which is comparable to most Christmas tree vendors. And, like all good things in life, Prime members can score free, two-day shipping on some of the trees.
One of the best things about buying a Christmas tree in person is that you can choose when you want to buy, set up, and ultimately decorate it — not just scramble to assemble it after a long day at work. But of course, Amazon’s thought of everything and will let shoppers preorder and choose their delivery date. But unlike buying a Christmas tree in person, you won’t have to strap it onto your car and wrestle it into your home.
We were initially surprised to hear Amazon is selling Christmas trees, but it does make sense. After all, the presents underneath your tree are likely from Amazon, so why not buy a luscious pine to match?
