Christmas is a traditional time of year. From stuffing the turkey to hanging up stockings, some of our favourite festive pastimes have been part of the season for hundreds of years!
However, sometimes it’s good to shake things up a bit! Alternative Christmas trees are becoming increasingly popular among those who like to buck the norm and create something out of the ordinary.
Take a look at our favourite artificial Christmas trees with a difference that we hope to see front and centre in many homes this Christmas!
Alternative Christmas Trees With a Difference…
Upside Down Christmas Tree
If you really want to flip tradition on its head, this one is for you! Hanging an upside down Christmas tree was once seen as a religious symbol in Eastern Europe during the Middle Ages, though this obviously gave way to the upright tree we all recognise today.
However, it looks like this once forgotten ritual is back on the rise! Having been picked up by Claridge's hotel in 2017, who brought in designer, Karl Lagerfeld to decorate, the trend is back on top!
While you may feel a little dizzy while hanging your baubles, our pre-lit upside down tree comes ready-strung with lights and with a sturdy hook to hang from your ceiling beam - so all you have to do is work out where to put your presents!
Black Christmas Tree
For some people, only a green Christmas tree will do. However, there are just as many other Christmas lovers who like to think outside the box…
Something of the marmite of Christmas trees, a black Christmas tree can divide opinion. Isn’t Christmas supposed to be merry and bright? While they may not be for everyone, we love the dramatic and luxurious look a black Christmas tree can give.
Great for contemporary styles, your sparkles will really stand out against the dark branches, while gleaming golds, glitters, beads and lavish feathers can add some opulence to your tree with a difference! We’ve even seen some people create a spooky Halloween display with theirs before transforming into Christmas…
LED Blossom Tree
Twig Christmas trees are another alternative becoming popular among those seeking a Christmas tree with a difference. Great for outdoor displays, our LED blossom trees also have plenty of potential for indoor use.
Whether you want a small table top twig tree or a full size spectacle, our range of LED blossom trees offer a great option for a contemporary alternative Christmas tree.
Take a look at The 5ft Warm White LED Blossom Tree that can fit beautifully into hallways for a striking minimalist look. If you’re feeling creative, you could also try hanging a few decorations off the branches for a modern alternative Christmas tree with minimal effort.
Half Christmas Tree
Half the tree doesn’t mean half the fun! The perfect solution for anyone trying to cram Christmas into their apartment or other small space, half Christmas trees have been popping up everywhere!
Lying flat against your wall, a half Christmas tree can allow you to go with a height and width that would usually take up too much space if it was full size. It also means you don’t have to hang on to unwanted baubles to fill the back of your tree - you can go all out to create a full on spectacle from the front only!
Use Your LED Lights…
If you really want to create an unconventional Christmas tree this year, your LED Christmas lights could be all you need!
Follow the latest trend of stringing lights up on your wall in the triangular shape of a Christmas tree to make a display that is sure to spread some smiles. You don't even need a power socket to adorn your walls if you use our battery powered LED lights! All you need is some adhesive wall hooks to wind your lights around and you will have created a Christmas tree with a difference in no time.
Other everyday objects can also be transformed into an alternative Christmas tree with the power of some LED string lights - a wooden folding ladder and stacks of books or logs are other popular choices!
