  • Alternative Christmas Trees for Smaller Spaces

    Alternative Christmas Trees for Smaller Spaces

    More and more people now live in more compact city flats, shared housing accommodation and generally much smaller living spaces. Small space living is all about trading the size of the space we live in for factors such as location, cost, availability and efficiency. I’ve seen a few other bloggers request ideas of alternative products to Christmas trees to fill the home this festive season. Cox & Cox have some amazing alternative Christmas trees this year, so I’ve put together a short round up of my favourite products from the brand, so now you can leave even more room for presents…

    Frosted Branches Hanging Tree – Large

    This gorgeous hanging tree is from Cox & Cox, and is only £45. Perfect for those who love Christmas but are short on space, Cox & Cox’s rustic hanging tree has been carefully created using ten natural birch branches hung together with strong jute string. A naturally inspired contemporary tree that works as an addition or alternative to your traditional fir tree, each branch has a dusting of gently sparkling snow. Easy to hang from a hook on your wall, this tree can be displayed alone in your entrance hall or used as the main attraction teamed with an array of decorations and surrounded by presents. You can also get this product in small, for just £20. Here the tree is decorated with baubles from the ‘Copper Opulence’ collection from the Cox & Cox 2017 Christmas Lookbook, but you could mix it up by using navy & gold decorations, or red and white for a more traditional look. All that you need now is some fake-snow-footprints and a half eaten carrot and you have yourself a Christmas miracle…


    Frosted Pine Indoor Outdoor Light Up Trees

    If you want to go for something slightly slimmer than your average Christmas tree, Cox & Cox have these beautiful light up trees ranging from £80 – £250. Not only are these more compact, they are suitable for displaying in the home OR in the garden, giving you two uses from one tree. These contemporary trees feature a slender brown frame with branches that can be posed to shape the trees, each finished with realistic pine needles in soft green with a light dusting of faux snow.

    Glass Christmas Tree Jar

    Are you someone who gets bored easily with the same decor every year? This glass Christmas tree jar could be perfect, as it’s only £40 and can be filled with different decorations to create a new look throughout the festive period. Choose from faux snow, fairy lights, Christmas baubles, chocolates – get creative! These glass trees are small in size, so could be used as a centerpiece on the dining table if you’re having a party or large gathering this year. If you tag #coxandcox on Instagram, you could even win a £100 voucher!

    Wrapping Paper

    Alternatively, if you’re looking to be totally creative… why not create a Christmas tree out of Christmas presents? If they’re wrapped as beautifully as these gifts, it will make quite a display. All you need is a flat wall to stack them up against to avoid being left with a heap of boxes on the floor instead. All of the wrapping paper below is also from Cox & Cox, so have a browse to find the perfect selection for your Christmas gifts this year. There are also ribbons, tags and twine to personalize and give something completely unique.
