Promoting through artificial Christmas trees

With a Christmas Tree one of the most recognisable symbols of Christmas, a festive marketing campaign centred around desktop artificial Christmas trees is more than appropriate.

The History Of The Christmas Tree

With the first use of a Christmas tree believed to have occurred when St Boniface found a group of Pagans worshipping an Oak Tree, over one thousand years ago, they have remained a consistent theme since. Boniface was a saint who converted German people to Christianity, and thus why the tree is used as a representation of Christmas, due to the periods of traditional roots in the Christian faith. With the oak tree pulled down, it was replaced with a fir tree, and thus as it grew, its symbolism of Christmas did too. Yet the fir tree remained a place of worship, simply replacing the oak tree, it was not until the 16th century when Christmas trees were used inside for the first time.

Why Choose An Artifical Christmas Tree Rather Than A Real Tree?

Following the excitement of Christmas, a decaying natural tree can provide a realistic view expressing that normality of day to day life has returned, and people look for the simplest way to dispose of their Christmas tree. It is a common sight in early January to see them dumped on the side of pathways, or even on river banks, as many people do not consider the plausible option of chopping down the tree and recycling it.

With the industry growing, Christmas trees are today available in many colours due to the production of artificial trees. Previously trees would need to be decorated, and many people choose to upkeep this tradition, however, it is becoming increasingly common to find trees that have been decorated at the time of purchase, due to the advantages which can be seen in artificial Christmas trees.

The investment in artificial Christmas trees to use as promotional products can be deemed an astute proposition due to the benefits it can have, especially due to the volume of people who purchase Christmas trees. With the size perfectly suited to an office desk, the symbolism of Christmas can not only brighten the workplace up but can subsequently enhance morale within the office. With a happy team often associated with increased productivity, the use of Christmas trees is a positive tool that can lead to widespread advertising during the festive period. Use in an office is more than suitable and will not cause a disturbance which can be caused by a natural tree, requiring regular attention,  as pines need to be cleared from the floor.

The artificial tree will not drop pines on to your desk, just offer a simple reminder of the exciting times which Christmas has to offer, whilst at the same time, promoting your brand to the audience.
