Learn why everyone is obsessed with the Grand Duchess Christmas tree.

Last year, a viral Home Depot Christmas tree hit the internet – selling it out at store across the country. Here we are a year later, and while us early Christmas people know whats up – the “official” season hasn’t even begun. Yet, the Home Depot Grand Duchess Christmas Tree is already out of stock across the nation!

While this Christmas tree meme may feature the coolest ever, many think the Grand Duchess is the best fake tree. Here’s why everyone is yapping about the viral TikTok Christmas tree!

Variety of Sizes

The Home Decorators Grand Duchess Artificial Christmas Tree comes in 3 heights and 2 shapes. It is available in both slim and full – offering heights of 7.5 feet, 9 feet and 12 feet tall.

Grand Duchess Balsam Fir Realistic

If you are going to get a fake Christmas tree, you want it to look real and the Grand Duchess does just that. This tree offers a full appearance with a natural look. The realistic needle tips are just the beginning!

The Grand Duchess tree is a replica of a Balsam Fir.

Pre-Lit with LED Twinkle Lights

While there is nothing new with a tree being pre-lit, this one offers some extra sparkle and brightness. The Grand Duchess feature that stands out most to me is the lights.

Not only does this tree offer a minimum of 2,250 LED lights, it also twinkles! The Grand Duchess offers LED color changing lights. (Do note, the lighting twinkle effect is only available in warm white.) You can change the colors and effects with the remote or an app. Speaking of the Grand Duchess app…

Smart Christmas Tree

The Grand Duchess is a smart Christmas tree so of course it comes with an app (in addition to a remote control.) With the Christmas Tree app, you can choose what color your Christmas tree lights are as well as choose the lighting function AND timer!

Easy Setup

One of the annual Christmas decorating hardships is putting together the Christmas tree. Home Depot’s Grand Duchess Christmas tree is easy to setup.

Each section uses a quick connect allowing you to simply connect each section (there are 3 sections, in addition to the base) and plug in your tree. No messing with Christmas light wires!

Minimal Fluffing

The second hardship and annoying factor when putting up an artificial Christmas tree is fluffing. The Grand Duchess Christmas Tree features memory wire.

This allows minimal fluffing needed to achieve the ideal shape for each of the tree’s branches. Each branch springs into it’s ideal shape as you are setting up the Grand Duchess tree.
