Top Of The Best Artificial Snow Reviewed In 2018Last Updated November 1, 2018
№1 – SnoWonder Instant Snow Artificial Snow – Mix Makes 10 Gallons of Fake Snow
№2 – 9′ x 8″ Pre-Lit Snow White Artificial Christmas Garland – Clear Lights
№3 – FloraCraft, 4 Liters, Plastic Snow
An impressive newcomer
With more lights and more branches (but a lower proportion of realistic ones), this new-for-201GE is worth a look.
The GE 7.5’ Just Cut EZ Light Frasier Fir Dual Color LED (model 17161HD) is new for 2018, so we’re still working on a hands-on review, but several of its specs are favorable when compared with our top pick from National Tree. It’s the same height and width, but it has more branch tips for a fuller appearance (2,07versus 1,867). Like our top pick, the GE lets you switch between white and multicolor lighting modes, and the lights connect directly as you assemble the three sections of the tree. But we are especially fond of the way GE’s LED Christmas lights look—in our test, we found them closest to the familiar warm glow of incandescent bulbs. However, the GE has 600 lights, versus our top pick’s 750, meaning it falls just short of our recommended 100 bulbs per foot of tree. And at 30 percent polyethylene, versus 3percent on the National Tree pick, the GE tree has a lower proportion of ultra-realistic branch tips—and a higher proportion of fake-looking PVC “needles.” You’ll never notice a difference from across the room, but up close you may find the GE slightly more artificial-looking.
Flaws but not dealbreakers
As we learned from experience, a major drawback to owning this or any artificial tree of a similar size is that it takes up considerable storage space in the off season, and is hard to fit back into its original box.
People often overlook the fact that they’ll need to store an artificial tree for or 1months out of the year, Gurino pointed out. And lack of storage space is the main reason, he added, that city and apartment dwellers favor live trees. (He also noted that when live trees get thrown out, they often become free mulch for public parks—in effect, they’re recycled.) Our tree, after being packed up after the photo shoot, took up a corner of our test space for a month before we were able to send it off to another Wirecutter editor for long-term testing. So unless you have lots of storage room in your place, a live tree may make more sense.
And even if you have room to store an artificial tree, bear in mind that, as Gurino noted, it won’t easily go back into its original box: “Once you fluff it, it’ll never fit exactly.” After we were done with our photo shoot, I spent about half an hour painstakingly collapsing each branch of our tree, one by one, as tight as I could against the central pole, to prep the tree for shipping. My best advice: Start from the top (the shortest branches) and end at the bottom (the longest branches). First pinch the branch tips together into a sort of bundle; then fold up the branch itself. Even after I did that, though, it made some obvious bulges in the original shipping box.
The re-boxed artificial tree of this size is heavy (over 50 pounds), difficult to fit on most shelves, and has a volume comparable to a tank-style water heater. But if you have ample storage space, you don’t have to keep a tree in its original box. Rather, Gurino said, keeping it covered and dry is the main thing. You can separate the sections and flatten the branches as compactly as you can, or keep it whole; just don’t store it somewhere it’ll be trampled or moved a lot. Do cover it with a light plastic painter’s tarp or an old sheet to keep the dust off, or buy a tree bag. And a climate-controlled space (converted basement, storage closet) is always preferable to an attic or garage.
Aside from appreciating the quality, beauty, and value of our pick, we chose a National Tree model for a few other reasons, namely exceptionally wide availability (online, in national chain stores, and in mom-and-pop shops), diverse options (in lighting, height, girth, and other considerations) to fit everyone’s unique needs, consistently great reviews, and the solidity of 50-plus years of a family-run business.
But the fact is, more than one company can claim most of those qualities, and you can find great trees under numerous brand names.
Much of the situation is due to the way artificial trees are manufactured: Almost all of them come out of a handful of factories in Taiwan and China. So while the companies selling the trees specify the details of their designs, the companies making the trees use similar materials and even many of the same basic components. That means you will be able to find a great artificial tree, even if it’s not our pick.
Puleo is Larry Gurino’s favored brand at House of Holiday; like National Tree, it’s a New Jersey–based, family-run business. Unfortunately, Puleo is not as widely available as some other brands, but its quality ranks among the best. Gurino has sold Puleo trees for 20 years, and they were some of the nicest-looking trees we came across in our search. If you find one you like, you can be confident in your purchase.
Balsam Hill is the top-selling artificial-tree brand in the US, and it offers an extraordinary array of top-quality trees in three ranges of realism. After viewing and handling examples in person, we consider its Realistic line comparable overall to National Tree’s Feel Real series. Both have a mix of realistic PE branch tips and plasticky PVC filler branches. And both do a great job of fooling the eye. An exact apples-to-apples comparison isn’t possible (due to differences in lighting options, for example), but Balsam Hill’s trees tend to feature more branch tips and light bulbs at a given height-width combination.
Frontgate mostly competes with Balsam Hill in the premium category, as it focuses on super-realistic and super-expensive trees. We didn’t encounter Frontgate trees in person, but their specs—and prices—are impressive.
There are many, many more competitors than what we list here. Given the way artificial trees are produced (described in How we picked), it’s not uncommon for companies to buy trees “off the shelf” and rebrand them under their own names. So if you can’t find one of our picks or a comparable tree from the makers listed here, you can still find an excellent tree. Here’s how.
Look at the tag—most brands are eager to note the presence, number, and often the percentage of realistic polyethylene branch tips; we like to see at least 30 percent polyethylene.
Simply look at the branch tips themselves. Although highly realistic artificial trees with polyethylene branch tips are becoming the norm, most manufacturers also still produce 100 percent-PVC trees. They’re much cheaper—and they look it. Polyethylene looks like real, living branches and needles; PVC looks like thinly sliced green paper.
Pines and Needles
Norway spruce: Very common in the UK, the Norway Spruce tree has a rich emerald green colour and strong branches. However, be aware of needle drop as they do tend to shed.
Scotch pine: The Scotch doesn’t shed needles and stays fresh for longer, so it’s relatively low maintenance. However, they are very spiky so not ideal for houses with children.
Balsam firs: These have a dark green colour and have flexible branches so are not really suitable for very heavy ornaments. It keeps its shape well and does not drop many needles.
The Nordmann fir: A favourite in the UK as this tree has soft needles that do not easily shed, and has a glassy dark-green colour that remains healthy for over weeks before beginning to dry.
What to look out for
When buying a real tree always select an unwrapped tree so you can really see how the branches sit and gauge the true width. Also make sure you give the tree a little shake and check if there is any needle loss; if there is, it is pretty much guaranteed that the tree will shed rapidly as the tree is older and less fresh.
Once Christmas trees have been cut they have begun to die, like flowers, so the longer it has been cut the faster it will begin to wither and brown. The branches should be bendy and the needles glossy as an indicator of freshness.
Check the tree base to ensure you can fit it in a stand. It should be a maximum of nine inches wide. Also beware of bugs and insects that are on the tree as these can be taken into your home.
How to care for your tree
When you get the tree home, saw about 2cms from the base before placing in a tree stand that also has a water reservoir. Make sure the water is topped up and keep the tree away from heat sources like radiators and fires to stop it from drying out. It is essential to stop the tree drying out and becoming a fire hazard. Always make sure lights are switched off when you leave the house as they can also cause a fire.
Think about it. Your foot is trapped for hours inside of a large boot. With that noted, breathability is a must to sustain comfort while skiing. With the use of ski specific socks, you will experience built in ventilation. Ski socks are made for the purpose of providing, warmth, comfort and breathability. A ski sock provides ventilation for your foot so that your feet stay dry from perspiration, allowing you to remain warm after a certain amount of time riding.
Ski socks are probably more expensive than your usual athletic socks, so protect your investment. Turn the socks inside out to wash them – this is where skin cells and dirt build up. It is best not to dry ski socks in commercial dryers. They get too hot. For best results, remove them from your home dryer before they are completely dry and finish drying them at room temperature.
Here’s how to make fake snow at home…
Snow in seconds is an “As Seen on TV” product that closely resembles real snow.
It’s the same product that is used on movie sets when they need to make snow!
All you do is add water, and you’ve instantly got what looks and feels like real snow.
You can put it on your trees or wreaths outside, and you can even make snowmen with it.
Insta-snow powder is another fake snow product that looks super realistic.
The powdery snow flakes expand to 100 times their original size!
I personally like the idea of using little pieces of white plastic bags — because it’s a way to re-use plastic bags that might otherwise end up in a landfill.
I thought it was important to include ideas for all wallet sizes.
So, now you know how you can have snow on the holidays even if you live somewhere that it is 80 degrees in December!
Some of my favorite things to write about are topics that have to do with living green, saving money, pregnancy, weddings, and dogs. When I’m not writing, I love to spend time with my husband, read, create 3D artwork and Native American beadwork.

Local tree lots are likely your best bet for pre-cut trees.
A number of local charitable groups open tree lots every year so you can buy a tree while helping others.
Vancouver South Lions Club – the lot is run by volunteers and proceeds go back to projects supported by the Lions club including projects for kids and seniors. They’re located outside John Oliver Secondary at the corner of Fraser Street and E. 41st Avenue. Credit cards are accepted. –
Scouts Christmas Tree Lot – The North Shore Scouts host an annual tree lot to raise funds supporting a number of groups in the area. You can find them at Park Royal at the corner of Taylor Way and Clyde Avenu

For those in smaller homes or want a live tree, potted options might be more desirable.
Keep in mind if you plan on re-planting the trees outside after you’ve had it in your home, it can only remain indoors for up to two weeks.
Garden Centres – stores like Figaro’s Garden in East Vancouver and Art’s Nursery in Surrey have stocked up on a selection of potted trees that you can nurture year-round after the decorations come down.
The weight, softness and warmth of a duvet depends on its tog rating and filling, and tog ratings are based on a duvet’s ability to trap warm air. The higher the tog rating, the warmer the duvet, with 2.– tog perfect for spring and summer and 10.– 13.ideal for autumn and winter.
Natural-filled duvets traditionally have better thermal properties than synthetic, and need less filling to achieve the same level of warmth, so their weight can be deceptive. Our best quality Canadian goosedown, for example, is very light indeed but has excellent thermal performance.
We have also specifically designed a lightweight synthetic duvet to combat those that do not like natural. The Lightweight Luxury has excellent warmth without the heaviness.
If you want flexibility and versatility, all-season duvets are a great choice. They consist of two separate duvets, usually a lightweight 4.tog for summer, a warmer tog for autumn and spring, and connect together for a 13.in winter.
Lightweight summer duvet 3.0 – 4.togSpring/Autumn weight duvet 7.0 – 10.togWinter weight duvet 12.0 – 13.tog
Ask in our shops about custom-made duvets made at our Herbert Parkinson factory in Lancashire, for couples who like differing levels of warmth in bed; no compromise is necessary as each side of the duvet can be given a different tog rating.
Fill power Duvets containing feather and/or down are also given a “fill power”. This is the volume occupied by the filling and it varies depending on the quality. It’s about how well the filling recovers and relates to thermal efficiency.
The higher the fill power, the better the duvet. With fill power ratings between 345gsm (grams per square metre) and 750gsm for our feather and/or down duvets and 475gsm to 750gsm for our synthetic and specialist duvets, you’re sure to find bedding that suits you perfectly.
All our natural duvets come in a boxed wall construction, where the filling held in each box allows an even distribution and prevents cold spots. Always shake your natural duvets from the side, and not the bottom, to prevent the filling from moving between boxes. For added comfort and quality all our natural duvets (except duck feather and down) have Nomite cases – Nomite guarantees that no feather escapes.
All synthetic duvets are constructed in a way that allows the filling to stay in its place, making them easier to maintain.
Duvets for children
When choosing a full-sized duvet for a child, unless their bedroom is very cold, it’s best to stick with a lighter weight duvet of 4.tog. As children are smaller it means that their duvet traps more air and increases the level of warmth over and above that experienced by most adults. A heavier duvet may well prove uncomfortable and is not recommended.
For babies and toddlers, we sell cot and cotbed duvets in our Nursery departments. Please note though, that duvets and pillows aren’t suitable for children under 1months, and that a room temperature of 18°C is recommended by many health professionals.
Single – 13x 200cm (mattress size W90 x L190cm or 3′ x 6’3″)
Double – 200x 200cm (W13x L190cm or 4’6″ x 6’3″)
Kingsize – 230 x 220cm (W150 x L200cm or 5′ x 6’6″)
Super kingsize – 260 x 220cm (W180 x L200cm or 6′ x 6’6″, or 2x zip and link beds)
Duvets with natural fillings are soft, light and comfortable, in the same way that natural fibres help your skin ‘breathe’ more effectively. They are also highly resilient and tend to last longer than those with synthetic fillings. We guarantee all our natural duvets for years.
Down duvets are lighter in weight than feather and down, but still offer the same level of warmth, and our options are all hardwearing and great value.
All our natural bedding suppliers provide us with a guarantee that their feather and down is sourced only as a by-product of the food industry. In addition, they’re monitored to ensure they practice the highest standards of animal welfare.
The higher the proportion of feather in a duvet, the cheaper and heavier it becomes. Many people prefer a heavy duvet, but don’t confuse weight with warmth, as a top quality down duvet may feel very light but has extremely effective thermal properties.
Natural-filled duvets should be professionally laundered because they need to be thoroughly dried, and this may be difficult for you to achieve at home. Please refer to the care guide that comes with your product on how to look after it. The number of times a duvet is laundered will have an impact on its lifespan, as will repeatedly lying or sitting on top of it as this has the effect of compressing the filling and eventually diminishing its ability to trap air.

Our synthetic duvets give the same warmth as natural fillings, and are a practical choice if you’re allergic to feathers and down, or if your duvet is likely to require frequent washing as synthetic fillings dry more easily.
However, the number of times a duvet is laundered will have an impact on its lifespan, as will repeatedly lying or sitting on top of it as this has the effect of compressing the filling, eventually diminishing its ability to trap air – especially with a synthetic duvet.
