    The Tree Nanny watering system helps keep your Christmas tree from going dry.

Tree Nanny babysits your Christmas tree to help make sure you don't let it go dry.
The battery-operated device, formerly called the Smart Tree Keeper, straps to the tree trunk and monitors the water level in the tree stand. When it senses that the tree needs water, it plays "Jingle Bells" every 10 minutes to alert you. A light sensor can tell when the tree lights are off, so the music won't come on at night and wake you.
The Tree Nanny also includes clear plastic tubing and an unobtrusive funnel that can be hung from a branch at a comfortable height and used to refill the tree stand. A chime alerts you when the stand is full and keeps you from overfilling.
The product can be ordered at It costs $19.99 plus $4.95 shipping and handling.
