We bought a fake tree a few years back and I love the no hassle and already built in lights.
But you do have to deal with the pesky holes from time to time.
And I just buy a candle to get the tree smell. This year was the first year my son was able to help with the tree. He stood on a chair next to me the whole time and put the same two ornaments on and off the tree for an hour. He had such a feeling of accomplishment. It was great. The two of us had a great time together.
