Cool Alternative Christmas Tree Ideas: Branch Out This Year

As we find ourselves in month of December, the Christmas tree is popping up in full force! Storefronts boast towering tributes to the season and neighborhood windows are lit up from within by ornately decorated branches. Although the Christmas tree is a staple of the year’s last month, these days it doesn’t always assume the traditional form. In fact, alternative trees have become increasingly popular, and for good reason.

Whether you normally pick-up a real pine tree (Home Depot has them ranging from $40 to $200), or head to the store for the plastic variety (Target sells them for anywhere from $25 to $300), a traditional Christmas tree can either set you back a pretty penny, or have you facing mess and storage issues. Not to mention, what happens to that dried up tree once January rolls around?

We find if you have a little look around your home and think outside the tree, you’ll be amazed at what you can come up with. Not to worry, there’s plenty of room for presents under these alternatives!
