I'm all for having most things delivered straight to my apartment. I might actually be the laziest shopper ever! If you're like me (and also don't get sentimental about picking out the perfect tree) Amazon has announced that they will be delivering live, 7-foot Christmas trees right to your door this year. The trees will be shipped within 10 days of being cut. Now if they could only decorate it, too!
According to People:
The AP reports that the internet giant, which is allowing pre-orders, is charging $115 for a seven-foot Fraser fir from North Carolina, $50 for a wreath and $25 for holiday plants. Some orders are eligible for Prime shipping.
