Design your dream tree

In the Canadian Tire Virtual Tree Designer, creating a breathtaking tree just takes a few clicks. Blast the Dean Martin, pour yourself a glass of eggnog, and start designing. Choose from a wide range of Canadian Tire Christmas decorations, test out new Canvas ornaments, add a Christmas tree skirt, experiment with Noma pre-lit Christmas trees, try out a tree colour you’ve never dared to — white Christmas tree, anyone? — or stick to the Christmas classics.

Wish List your bespoke

When you’re happy with your personalized tree, from the tinsel to the Christmas tree topper, you can use your design as a blueprint to make magic happen in your living room. Your Canadian Tire Christmas tree, plus every decoration you’ve selected, can be bought at your local Canadian Tire store – so you can focus on everything else on your Christmas to-do list
