Just because you don’t fancy lugging a Douglas fir home with you, it doesn’t mean you have to give up on having a Christmas tree altogether. Here are seven beautiful, recyclable alternatives – from little to large.

You don’t always have to choose between a real and a fake Christmas tree. Simply getting a fir tree-shaped decoration for your home is also an option. Though they might not seem quite as lush, they do light up – and can be decorated. The best thing about them? After the festivities are over, they can be quickly tidied away again.

1. The melting one: the Christmas tree candle

This Christmas tree candle barely takes up any space. Even so, it has something that engages the attention of the entire room. Something no real fir tree can offer: (visual) warmth. As it burns, it makes the atmosphere cosy, melting away not just the wax, but hearts too.

2. The foldable one: «Christmas Paper»

Dont place the «Christmas Paper» tree too close to candles – otherwise, it’ll go up in flames. Even without a glow, however, the tree is still attention-grabbing. With its natural colours and filigree folds, it should be placed as high up as possible – on shelves, windowsills or tables.

3. The timeless classic: the «Winter Stories» porcelain tree

The «Winter Stories» ceramic candle holder creates the wow effect by providing space for a stick-shaped candle. This lights up the small, green tree next to it.

4. The snowy-white one: decorative foam Christmas tree

A fir tree made of white, PVC foam is like a blank sheet of paper where you can let your creativity loose. Its silk-matte surface can be varnished, glued and decorated – an Advent craft session that’s guaranteed to be fun for kids too. Alternatively, you can leave the tree snow white, playfully arranging Christmas decorations around it.

5. Simply elegant: the «Snowfrost» LED tree

Given that it’s largely made of LEDs, «Snowfrost» glows from the get-go. You can add glass baubles, but it’s not a must. If, however, you’re missing the green, there’s also a model with needles.

With trees like «Snowfrost» you have a simple yet elegant two-in-one solution.

6. «Bark»: the magnetic metal tree

«Bark» is inspired by fir trees. However, what clearly distinguishes it from the real thing is its magnetic quality. The magnetic steel tree comes with matching porcelain baubles and shooting star magnets.

7. The timeless one: the wooden «Filigreen Tree»

This wooden alternative comes closest to a real Christmas tree. Especially if you spruce it up with a garland or some branches. However, in its original form, decorated with festive baubles, it’s also a modern, minimalist substitute for a traditional Christmas tree.

With tree decorations or fairy lights, you can give the «Filigreen Tree» a festive glow.
