Let’s admit the idea. Hanging Christmas tree lights is actually annoying.
The end result is actually, of course, joyous as well as festive. yet the process of laboriously stringing lights while being poked by pine needles doesn’t do much for the holiday spirit.
Tree Dazzler, a curtain of lights which hangs vertically over your Christmas tree, could be an easier alternative This kind of year.
While the product certainly appeals to the laziest among us, the idea could also strike a chord with consumers who just don’t want to spend time decorating.
The full set up takes about three minutes — no untangling required.
TeleBrands, the company behind the product, said retail chains nationwide have stocked up on Tree Dazzler in time for the holiday decorating rush.
“We think we’re going to be sold out of these well before Christmas,” said A.J. Khubani, founder as well as CEO of TeleBrands, citing feedback via retailers.

Tree Dazzler ($40) features a large circular plastic ring with eight hanging strands of round lightbulbs. The ring sits at the top of the tree as well as the strands, which each have 64 blubs, fall onto the tree.
If you need more bulbs, stack another Tree Dazzler ring on top of the first to cover more surface area. the idea comes using a switch which controls six lighting combinations — the lights can change colors, flicker as well as make scrolling patterns.

TeleBrands, whose products are often featured in As Seen on TV infomercials, gained traction last year for its Star Shower gizmo — a little laser device which projects thousands of tiny stars onto the front of your house.
“We sold 4 million of those,” Khubani said. “We’ll probably double [the sales of which product] This kind of year.” (Telebrands is actually selling a newer variation This kind of year which features moving lights.)
The runaway success of Star Shower inspired the company to focus on doing holiday decorating easy. “People are so busy … they want a fast way to decorate,” he said.
As with Star Shower, Khubani is actually betting harried holiday households will embrace the gimmicky convenience of Tree Dazzler.
