Are you one of those who buy the Christmas gifts in the last minute and hardly manage to get the tree up in time for the guests to arrive?
Maybe this Last Minute Instant Tree ($400) from Hammacher Schlemmer is just what you need to get into the christmas spirit and be able to relax.
Unlike most prelit trees that require some styling to achieve their optimal shape, this 7 1/2′ prelit tree comes in four hinged sections which, when put together, instantly assume the form of a fully shaped Christmas tree, allowing you to begin decorating within five minutes.
The tree has 800 commercial white lights and 2,600 heavy-duty PVC tips that require no additional shaping for the life of the tree, and will not crush during storage. It has a powder-coated steel center pole, and the stainless steel cores in each tip support the heaviest of ornaments. Lights are rated for 3,000 hours of operation; if one bulb burns out, the balance of the lights will still operate.
