No offense to Rockefeller Center’s annual behemoth tree, but smaller can be better when it comes to artificial Christmas trees. These short kings are wonderful in tight spaces or on entryway tables, on a porch, as a second tree for a bedroom or to perk up a basic dorm room, a lovely way to cheer up your home office without overpowering it, and useful if you’re the proud owner of a curious cat who can’t quit climbing or if you’ve always had a soft spot in your heart for “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Plus, smaller trees are typically more budget-friendly than their bigger siblings, and easier to store.
Whether you’re a minimalist or this is just a bonus tree for your maximalist Christmas decor, from skinny to plump, forest green to bubblegum pink, below are 12 of our favorite smaller-sized Christmas trees.
