Ever had that moment of terror when your fully decorated Christmas tree is rushing towards the ground with a pet or small child attached to it?
We have all spent the first weekend of December decorating the Christmas tree with our specially chosen decorations, only to see the little ones or pets running up to pick at the branches, pull decorations off the tree and, sometimes, see the whole thing topple having been pulled down.
Those worries will now be a thing of the past with this genius half-tree.
Inspired by these Christmas tree disasters, high street giant Argos is selling a half Christmas tree that keeps branches well out of the reach of crawling children and inquisitive pawing pets.
The tree size is 6ft and features a bare bottom half so you can still display a beautifully decorated tree in the house, without the annual child and pet hazard risk.
If you don’t have the risk of child or pet sabotage, but lack the floor space for a traditional tree, these are a terrific way to fit one into your living room without feeling too squished.
