Easy Watering for Christmas Trees

Photo: &

Are you finding it awkward slipping a watering can under all the presents and branches to water your Christmas tree without making a mess? Why not add an inexpensive automotive funnel to your repertoire of tools?

With its long, flexible extension, the funnel can reach down below the branches and behind the packages, right into the reservoir. And when not in use, just leave the nozzle in place and hide the funnel itself behind the gifts. 

Problem solved!
