I’ve noticed this post coming up in my top posts so I thought I would get it out there again for people who aren’t aware it exists. This is truly the best Christmas stand you can ever buy. I don’t really need to say anything else, but it truly is. One person can put the tree up with this baby. Check it out. — Alicia
The other night as we were putting up our Christmas tree I was reminded of the best 50 bucks we’ve spent in years (now, it’s down to $39.99) — on the Swivle Straight Christmas Tree Stand. Truly a life (um, marriage) saver when it comes to putting up your tree. Here’s how it works – There’s an oval piece of the base that is not attached — you screw that onto the bottom of the tree trunk, then you put the tree (with the oval piece) into the base on the floor. At this point it may be crooked. Don’t fret. Now, just hold the top of your tree with one hand, put your foot on the pedal located on the base of the unit and rotate/tilt/move the tree to the desired position. Let go of the pedal. Viola! You’ve got one straight tree — without all the swearing!
Since we purchased this stand several years ago we have never had a crooked tree — or an argument. People, if you want to make this Christmas easier go out and buy this tree stand. I’m pretty sure you can get it at most large Target-like stores.
