Christmas this year has come and gone like crazy, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it still, and have some inspiration for next year, with these alternative Christmas Trees! So fun, so easy, and duuuh, budget friendly! ‘Cuz who has the money (or space) for a BIG Christmas tree in their 20s?

As we’re sitting in bed – me, being Maya, in my new Hogwarts and Andy in his new Assassin’s Creed Pj’s onesie that we got for Christmas, re-watching Harry Potter and enjoying each other’s company – we thought about how big and space consuming were the Christmas trees we used to have back home when we were kids. Even though they were as beautiful as the ones Hagrid brings to Hogwarts every year.

Since we moved on our own 5 years ago, we limited ourselves to minimalistic and different Christmas trees. From ones that are just a few inches tall and can stand on the table or on the floor, to our new white one, that is actually my uncle’s from last year! So adorable! And it’s so tiny, just perfect for our small apartment.

As today marks the last day of 2017, it would be fun to get some inspo for 2018, don’t you think? For next year, we’re searching for something different, that’s why we thought, why not share our findings with you, our lovely dreamers? That’s how this list was born.

But enough with the chit-chatting! Let’s get to it!
