December will be here within a blink of an eye.

And after one of the most challenging years the nation has faced for decades, many of us are looking for ways to save money.

From thrifty gift ideas to budget food shops, we're all working on ways to make our cash stretch further this festive season.

And if we can cut down costs without compromising - even better.

When it comes to buying an artificial Christmas for your home, it can get rather expensive.

The taller and fuller the tree is, the easier it gets to slip past the £100 bench mark.

But there are still some retailers offering sizeable trees for Christmas shoppers on a budget.

This year, stores including Argos, B&M, B&Q, George Asda, IKEA and Wilko are offering artificial trees for savvy shoppers.

And you won't have to compromise on size for the price - some of the budget trees in our round up are 6ft tall.

Argos - £9 (4ft)

Argos Home is stocking 4ft artificial Christmas trees for just £9, down from £12.

Designed for non-traditionalists, the tree comes in a bright pink or bright yellow colour

The tree is easy to assemble - all you'll have to do is slot the trunk into the base, pull down the branches and tease and tweak them until the tree looks thick and full.

The bottom branch diameter is 20 inches, the tree weighs 1kg in total, there are 113 tips and it's made from PVC with a metal and plastic stand.
