Are you a fan of alternative Christmas trees? These days there are so many more options available, so there’s no need to be stuck with a traditional bushy green tree if you’d prefer something a little wilder. Here are our top picks for alternative Christmas trees that will make a statement and bring plenty of seasonal cheer to your home.
Rainbow alternative Christmas trees
Wow, what a stunner! We love this super funky rainbow Christmas tree. It’s bright and colourful and would look great accessorised with silver or gold decorations, or yet more bright colours. The rainbow Christmas tree measures 5ft in height and could take pride of place in your home for £26.25 from Argos.
Paperchase also have two shiny rainbow Christmas trees available – one standing 5ft tall and the other a whopping 7ft in height.
Blue ombre Christmas tree
If blue is more your colour, then how about this cool blue ombre Christmas tree? It’s slimline in shape, measures 4ft tall and comes with 26 white LED lights already on it. The ombre effect definitely helps this tree make a statement. Decorate it with white or silver decorations to add to the cool blue style. The blue ombre Christmas tree is £50 from Dunelm.
Golden glow twig Christmas tree
Twig style Christmas trees are a popular alternative style and are favoured for their more simplistic and contemporary look. These golden glow twig Christmas trees from Balsam Hill make a bold statement and would look perfectly good left as they are, or adorned with your choice of Christmas decorations. The gold twig trees are available in three sizes (4ft, 5ft and 6ft) and are normally priced from £99. If you’re tempted, it’s worth a look at them now though, as they are currently half price.
Blue tinsel alternative Christmas tree
Another blue Christmas tree, but this time in a paler shade and smaller size. This blue tinsel alternative tree is ideal if you’re lacking space or need to have a tree out of reach from pets, as it’s only 3ft in size and could easily be displayed on a table. What’s more, the Orelle artificial Christmas tree is a bargain at only £6 from B&Q. It’s also available in black, pale pink or white – you could create your own rainbow of different trees!
Ombre glamour Christmas tree
Ombre effects seem to be all the rage with alternative Christmas trees this year and here’s another super offering. The artificial ombre glamour Christmas tree has three rich colours – a bottom section in black, a middle section in silvery grey and the top in silvery white. It’s got a full, lush, bushy look and is definitely a statement tree at 7ft tall. You can buy this ombre Christmas tree at Dobbies for £99.
Pink ombre Christmas tree
Can’t get enough of pink? Now you can have a Christmas tree in your favourite colour! This 4ft artificial Christmas tree is in a striking pink ombre finish, going from a darker shade of pink at the base to a light pink at the top. It’s quick and easy to put together and there’s plenty of space on the hinged branches for you to hang your decorations.
Better still, the pink alternative Christmas tree is only £15 at Argos – bargain!
Black alternative Christmas tree with stars
This black Christmas tree is really dramatic! It comes pre-lit with 125 white LED star lights and they look very effective when they’re lit up against the black tree. This tree would definitely look great as it is (especially at night) without the need to add any other decorations. However, if you do want to add some extra glitz, gold decorations would tone in wonderfully well. The black Christmas tree is normally priced at £80, but there’s currently a discount available at Argos.0
