Walmart is here to make the holiday season easier. This week, the retailer announced two new services to help customers prep for the greatest (yet often the most hectic) time of year without even having to leave the couch.

Walmart will now deliver live Christmas trees right to your doorstep for free. Yes, that’s right—a live Fraser Fir brought to you without the hassle of having to tie it to your car’s roof. But besides delivering classic holiday trees, Walmart is also offering free delivery on all almost all other holiday plants as well. Think: poinsettias, Amaryllis, the Norfolk Island Pines, and more. Who knew Walmart had such a green thumb?

To access this option, you can head here to hand pick your tree and/or festive shrub. You’ll be able to select the tree’s exact height, with options ranging from 3 ft. to 9 ft. You can choose whether the tree is fresh-cut or potted.

Walmart also has partnered with Handy, an online handyman marketplace, to offer a light installation service for the exterior of your home. Through this service, a professional will come to your home to untangle your box of string lights and climb the ladder for you. Unfortunately, this will cost you—rates start at $129 for a single-story home and $199 for a two-story home. To have the lights removed post-holiday, prices drop down to $99 for a single-story home and $159 for a two-story home.

To access this service, simply add Christmas Lights Installation Service to your cart while shopping on After checkout, Handy will reach out via email to schedule an installation appointment. Note: You’ll need to supply the lights, clips or anchors, and extension cords. However, if you don’t have lights, but are interested, you can also pick some out on that can be purchased alongside installation. It’s a win-win if you ask me.
