Forget BYOB, this season is all about PYO. And BYOS – that’s bring your own saw, FYI. When it comes to finding your perfect Christmas tree, you can’t beat heading out into the countryside to pick your own. These farms are open until Christmas for you to wander around in search of a super spruce. You can even channel your inner lumberjack and attempt to chop it down before you drag (see: drive) it back to your flat just like they did in the good old days.

Spotted your ideal fir or spruce? You can either cut it down yourself or ask staff to do the chopping at this huge Bedfordshire farm. Then all you need to do is remember where you put those brussels sprout baubles. Until Dec 22.

You don’t just pick your own tree here, you can cut down the fir with your own hands, too. Just bring a hand saw and get chopping before you lose daylight. Don’t fancy your sawing skills? Pick up a pre-cut tree instead. Until Dec 22. 

Feeling super festive?
