It’s almost that time of year again. The temperature is dropping, the days are getting shorter and summer has truly said its goodbyes, but it’s not all bad news. Because the further you get from summer, the closer you get to Christmas.
Christmas on the horizon means it’s time to start planning your decorations for this year. Whether you’re aware of it or not, getting into Christmas cheer earlier actually makes you happier than those grumps who refuse to get on board until the last possible moment.
One of the major decisions for your Christmas decorations is, of course, your tree. For many, the aim is to make the tree the biggest, most decorated and most impressive thing in the house, but not everyone has excess space to fill. If you live in a small apartment or want to decorate your office, you have limitations as to how big your tree can really be.
But fear not, there’s still plenty of beautiful Christmas tree choices and decorating ideas for smaller spaces. Whether you’re short on space or fancy adding a tree to your office, dorm room or classroom, a tabletop Christmas tree may be the answer to your woes.
Whatever your reason for needing a smaller, tabletop Christmas tree, there’s sure to be one to suit your needs in our list of 10. We’ve included more traditional options, light-up trees, tinsel trees and an option which features Santa Claus and his reindeer flying around the top.
Check out these trees and find the right one for your space.
