The festive season wouldn’t be complete without a dazzling Christmas tree taking pride of place. And rather than sticking to the tried and tested green fir as December 25th approaches, families are thinking outside of the box when it comes to their tree of choice.

Whether you want to grow your own Christmas tree or go for an alternative Christmas tree idea that fits in seamlessly with your minimalist living room, there’s an option to perfectly suit your needs.

Have yourself a quirky little Christmas

And once you’ve got the ball rolling on your quirky take on the festive season why not add some creative flourishes to the rest of your Christmas decor? From a spicy cranberry sauce to some homemade Christmas crackers, there’s no end to the possibilities when it comes to a Christmas to remember.

So what are you waiting for? Scroll through our selection of alternative Christmas trees, get that box of baubles down from the attic and get ready for the festive season like no other.

Santa and his elves may even want to throw in an extra gift or two when they see how good your alternative Christmas tree looks. Just don’t forget to leave out a glass of milk and some mince pies to keep him happy!
