Croft & Cole:
Croft & Cole sources the finest Nordmann Fir Christmas trees from across the UK and delivers them directly to its customers' doors, so that everyone can enjoy a real Christmas tree without the hassle of going to collect it. The 'tree guarantee' offers peace of mind that the beautiful fir that arrives will set the perfect scene for making magical Christmas memories.

Give the gift of Christmas:
All of the best festive memories are made around the Christmas tree and now shoppers can send friends and family a beautiful non-drop,  Nordmann Fir knowing its responsibly sourced from British farms. It's the perfect gift for family members who would otherwise struggle to collect a real tree.

Sustainable and responsible:
By buying British, Croft & Cole reduces the miles from field to front door, which means reduced carbon footprint and guaranteed freshness. The thousands of acres of Christmas tree farms across the UK support the environment and provide a home for wildlife, and every tree that the farmers responsibly fell is replanted.

Safe for children and pets:
The British grown, hand-selected Nordmann Fir trees are chosen for their low drop, soft and rounded needles, meaning there is very little mess. And, when a rare needle does drop, it’s safe for children and pets.

Quality assured / peace of mind:
Each tree is hand-selected for its balanced conical shape; even proportions (without any holes or gaps); and perfect needle colour and sheen. Only the top Christmas trees are selected for the Croft & Cole collection, so customers get peace of mind that the tree they send/receive is the perfect centrepiece for the most memorable Christmas celebrations.

Clean and easy to open:
The tree arrives in an easy-to-open bespoke hexagonal box, which is 100% recyclable. Simply place the tree in the desired location, pull the easy-tear tabs, and the wardrobe-like doors open to reveal a premium netted Christmas tree. Sizes range from four-foot to seven-and a-half-foot and, unlike most ‘side of the road’ retailers, Croft & Cole sells in half-foot sizes to make sure each tree fits perfectly in the desired location.

Christmas in a box:
In addition to selling beautiful trees, Croft & Cole offers the perfect additions to make Christmas easy. The simple to assemble stands and low-energy lights that link together (so you can have the perfect amount on just one plug) are just some of the items on the Croft & Cole website.

Britain's Finest Christmas Trees Delivered To Your Door

Collecting a real Christmas tree from a 'side of the road retailer' can be difficult, pushing some people towards plastic. However, a new company has launched that enables all mainland UK homes to have a real traditional tree delivered to their door with free next-day or named-day delivery.

At croftandcole.com, customers can order a grade-A Christmas tree and select a delivery date to suit, starting from the 27th November 2019 and running until 21st December 2019. If ordered before 12pm, customers will qualify for free next-day delivery.

Thomas Onslow-Cole, CEO and founder of Croft & Cole, commented: “Christmas is the one time of the year that we are really able to cherish our traditions. While life throughout the year is rapidly changing, Christmas is the time to slow down and go back and find comfort in the familiar . This is why we wanted to make sure the tradition of having a real tree inside our homes isn't lost - for us, Christmas isn't Christmas without the look and smell of fir.”

To make Christmas even easier, there is a selection of lights and stands to complement the Croft & Cole trees and there is no additional postage cost.

Luxury Christmas Delivered To The Door

Following on from the success of its home-delivery Christmas trees, stands and lights, Croft & Cole has added wreaths, gift wrap, greetings cards and candles to its collection, so that customers can order everything they need to get the festivities underway and have it delivered to their door in one easy-to-open box.

At croftandcole.com, customers can order a quality British-grown Nordmann Fir tree and select a delivery date to suit, starting from the 26th November and running until 21st December 2019.

Once the size of tree is selected, a suitable water-holding stand and low-energy lights can be added to the order. And, from today, one of two hand-made wreaths - 'Kilted Classic' and 'Winter Spice' - can be selected to give guests a warm welcome this winter.

To get the preparations in full swing, Croft & Cole has created three gift wraps to choose from - 'Premium Craft', 'Luxury Mistletoe' and 'Forest Friends' - and, although all are luxury, they are 100% recyclable.

Two Christmas card packs - 'Friendship' and 'Foiled Foliage' - have been crafted and 'Ampersand' thank you cards mean it's easy to send gratitude to those who have made yule time celebrations special.

Finally, a range of five Christmas scented candles have been blended using favourite festive fragrances and designed to complement and enhance the soft scent of any Croft & Cole Christmas tree.

Thomas Onslow-Cole, CEO and founder of Croft & Cole, commented: “Our customers love Christmas preparations - dressing the tree, wrapping gifts and writing cards surrounded by scented candles - but dashing around the shops and garden centres to collect the tree, gift wrap, candles and cards isn't so much fun. That's why we've added these new products to our collection. We want to take the hassle out of Christmas so that our customers can spend their precious time doing the things they love.

"We also know that waiting-in for deliveries can be a pain, so we've made sure that all of our products fit inside one easy-to-open box that will be delivered on a date to suit."
