You can now get someone to deliver and decorate your Christmas tree (for just £450)

Hoping you could at least make it to November this year without the C-word coming up? Yeah, good luck with that. The Oxford Street Christmas lights have been up for nearly two weeks already, and now John Lewis has got the festive season all wrapped up with the launch of its 'Home For Christmas' service.

The new service means that lazy Londoners can now get someone to choose their Christmas tree, put it up, and decorate it. So you'll never have to wrestle with that Christmas tree stand or ten-year-old tinsel again.

The service will be offered at John Lewis’ two London flagship shops on Oxford Street and Sloane Square, and they're kicking off with appointments on December 1. But it won't come cheap. Tree delivery and decoration will set you back £200, and if you want the Christmas tree stylist (yep, that's an actual job) to check out your living room first as part of the 'Full Festive Works', that'll cost another £250. But it's fine because you can redeem that £250 on Christmas products from the store. Because who doesn't have £250 to spend on baubles?
