Buy an artificial one.

Nordmann spruce seem to drop less than other types. Some places dip their trees in something to stop them drying out.

Whatever you buy, if its real, make sure it stands in a water trough  (special xmas tree stands are available, and you keep it topped up.

Have the dyson on standby.
