Live Christmas Trees. You choose, We ship.

A live Christmas tree is the best way to bring the freshness of the outdoors into your home. Hammacher Schlemmer makes that much simpler for you by shipping a fresh cut Fraser fir direct from a farm in North Carolina to your door.

Freshly Cut Christmas TreeIt’s quite simple. First, you select the appropriately sized Christmas tree for your home. Choose the height, ranging from five to nine feet, and specify if you’d prefer a Christmas tree that is full, or slim. Then, tell us what week you would have us deliver your tree, from the week beginning November 11, to the week of December 16. Then all you need to do is bring the Christmas tree decorations out of the storage room  in time for your beautiful live Christmas tree to arrive!

Save yourself a trip to the nursery this year, and let Hammacher Schlemmer ship a fresh cut live Christmas tree to your home for the holiday season.

Fresh Cut Live Christmas Tree

Press Release: Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces The Fashionista Christmas Tree

New York, NY, October 23, 2012- Continuing its 164-year history of offering the Best, the Only, and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Fashionista Christmas Tree, an artificial tree in the shape of a couturier’s dress form.

Available exclusively from Hammacher Schlemmer, The Fashionista Christmas Tree eschews the geometric lines of typical trees and is tailored to the shape of a three-dimensional mannequin, a form more common to department store windows and fashion designers’ studios.

The Fashionista Christmas Tree allows one to celebrate the holiday season in an elegant, fashionable manner, while still providing a way to display traditional Christmas decoration,” explained Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Manager Fred Berns.

The dark-green needles wrap tightly around the high collar, along the torso and arms, and across the hoop skirt, evoking memories of traditional Christmas conifers while accentuating the curves of the dress form.

The Fashionista Christmas Tree is pre-strung with 150 LEDs that glimmer through the evergreen foliage from the shapely torso past the perfect size-four waist, and eight removable, iridescent globe ornaments cast a ruby-red hue while leaving room for personal holiday trimmings.

Topped with a matte-finish metal star, The Fashionista Christmas Tree has a 15″ hem that leaves ample clearance for gifts.

Press Release: Introducing Lifelike Prelit Trees

New York, NY, October 14, 2012  – Continuing its 164-year tradition of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer has expanded its exclusive line of prelit Christmas trees. The lush trees are meticulous reproductions of live evergreens and are strung with the best lights available.

“They’re so realistic that your guests may be surprised your tree wasn’t freshly cut,” said Fred Berns, Hammacher Schlemmer’s general manager. “You’ll enjoy all the beauty of a live tree without worrying about fallen needles or watering.”

Only available from Hammacher Schlemmer, America’s longest running catalog, the trees painstakingly replicate the fullness, natural growth patterns and distinctive silhouettes of live conifers. Compared to typical trees, they have 40% more branch tips, uniquely crafted from three-dimensional injection-molded plastic. The inner branches and trunk are lined with broad fibers to further bolster the trees’ fullness.

The prestrung LEDs or incandescent lights mean no struggling with tangled wires. Patented technology ensures the warm glow will shine on, even if one bulb breaks or burns out, backed by the Hammacher Schlemmer Lifetime Guarantee of Complete Satisfaction.

Eighty-one tree styles are available, including the traditional Fraser, Noble, and Douglas Firs. New this season are slim and full Scots Pines, ranging in height from 4.5’ to 8.5’, modeled on a live Pinus sylvestris. Hammacher Schlemmer also now offers hand-flocked spruces, with thick outer boughs and thin inner branches that simulate the appearance of a recent fluffy snowfall.

Shoppers can view the complete Christmas tree selection online and find their perfect tree by sorting the results by branch and bulb type, tree height and width, and price.

Christmas Tree Finder

The Christmas Tree Finder page from Hammacher Schlemmer allows you to select the available options you seek when choosing your holiday tree.

Christmas Tree FinderThe shopping experience begins by selecting a tree by branch type, from our fresh cut live Fraser firs to realistic synthetic Nobles, Balsams, and more. When the height of a tree is a determining factor, use the Christmas tree finder to choose from table top models, up to 12-foot giants. Trees can be chosen by width as well, from slim to full. If lighting is a preference, pick either LED lit trees, or Incandescent lights. All options are designed to let the shopper narrow down the broad range of selections to their specific needs.

Live Christmas Trees that come to you!

Nothing can replicate the fragrance of a live Christmas tree in your home. For many, that fragrance from the living room is the first true sign the Christmas season is upon us. That, and the pain of finding the right Christmas tree when they’re all tied with rope, leaning against a fence at the local gas station. Or the delicate balance between tying a living, breathing plant to the roof of your car securely without damaging it, followed by the pleasure of stopping every 5 minutes on the drive back home to ensure your tree stays put on its lofty perch above traffic.

But what if you could enjoy all the pleasure of a fresh cut Fraser fir this Christmas, without the hassle of getting it home? Hammacher Schlemmer has just the thing for you.

Live Christmas TreeUnlike Christmas trees found at ordinary tree stands that are already two to four weeks old, these Fraser fir trees are freshly cut within a day of shipment and carefully packed to retain freshness. Specially selected for Hammacher Schlemmer at a Christmas tree farm in North Carolina, each deep green tree has a full body, with shaped boughs that hold their needles, and a rich fragrance. You choose the size you’d like, then tell us what week you’d like it delivered to your door. Not to the forest. Not to the temporary “farm” in the shopping center parking lot. But direct to your home.

It’s that simple. Relax in front of a warm fire, and let Hammacher Schlemmer select and ship your live Christmas tree this year.
