You put in a ton of hard work and dedication into finding the ultimate Christmas tree for your home (or, okay, maybe you hauled it there from a grocery store—but hey, that's still a lot of work!) so don't let it go to waste. A good Christmas tree stand can help keep your tree stable, hydrated, and alive longer (not to mention, help you show off your tree's best side), so they're worth the investment—unless you plan to go the artificial tree route.

Maybe you prefer the traditional bolted stand, or maybe you're in the market for a piece that's designed to roll to any room in your home. Maybe you're just glad your beloved tree remained on top of your car. In any case, these are the best Christmas tree stands you can buy this holiday season, and why they're worth the purchase. We even found a stand that's secure enough to hold the biggest tree you can fit inside your house. Add your favorite ornaments, and you're good to go!
