Even though we're currently knee-deep in all things Halloween, we're already entertaining a few ideas to deck the halls for Christmas. We go big when it comes to putting up Christmas decorations every year (trust us: the earlier you put them up, the better). And this year, we're starting small thanks to these adorable ceramic Christmas tree night lights.
Ceramic Christmas trees first gained popularity back in the 1970s. If you grew up during the decade, you probably remember the pottery displayed on your mom's or grandma's mantel during the month of December. In the '90s, demand for the trees declined, but like so many trends—like peacock chairs and beloved Pyrex—our favorite nostalgic ceramic Christmas trees have been popping up again to fill our homes (and our hearts) with fond memories of Christmases past.
Of course, we love the classic tabletop ceramic trees, but we're just as fond of the miniature versions. The first one we spotted is an evergreen snow-capped version. The 5-inch tree features multi-color lights, a 180-degree swivel plug, and retails for $16.99. The same company offers what looks like the same version of the tree in bright white with multi-color lights for $14.99. Another option we spotted is a sheer, acrylic green version that allows the light to shine through the body. It comes with sparkly snow and lights, a gold star at the top, and is available for $21.95.

The nice thing about these tiny Tannenbaums is they can be useful in many different areas throughout your home—all you need is an outlet. They're great to add to your guest bedroom to get your friends and family feeling merry and bright when they're staying at your home over the holidays. They'd also work well in a hallway to give you a little Christmas cheer in a place you wouldn't typically decorate for the holidays.
Christmas is still a couple of months away, but it never hurts to get ahead on your holiday decorating and add one of these plug-ins to your shopping cart.
