2. If you're about to start shopping for a real Christmas tree, consider buying the Obama family-favored Fraser fir. According to The Telegraph, this is one of the best real trees; they're narrow enough to fit in smaller places and can last relatively long. They're also, at least for now, extremely cheap. Right now, Groupon is selling real fresh cut premium Fraser fir Christmas trees and wreaths for over 50% off with free shipping. You can, for example, purchase a $150 6-Foot Premium Fraser Fir Tree for $80, or a $70 22-inch Fraser Fir Wreath for $35. Alternatively, you can buy both -- a $196 value -- for $90. This is a pre-order item, which means you won't get these until after November 27, 2018. The deal ends on November 9, 2018.

  • Product: Real premium Fraser fir Christmas trees and wreaths
