The festive season is here. And as usual, we are all trying to get gifts for our friends, colleagues, and family members. I'll have to admit, it's been a stressful year and now more than ever, we have to appreciate everyone who stood by us during this time.

If you're running out of gift ideas, I have one that you'll love, the Tabletop Christmas Trees. Creating real Christmas trees is one of the best ways to bond with family and friends. But they are time-consuming, and not everyone has the resources to look for the tree and decorate it.

Tabletop Christmas Trees make excellent alternatives since you don't have to water them. They are also smaller and are perfect for decorating smaller areas such as your apartment, office, or nursing home.

What are Tabletop Christmas Trees Made Of?

These trees are made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) or polyethene (PE). But you may come across those made from fibre or aluminium. They are made to look like the real pine, conifer, fir, or any other tree used to make Christmas trees. 

Factors to Consider When Buying a Tabletop Christmas Tree

Below are some things to check;


These trees come in different sizes. So you need to consider the size of your table, the corner, or any other place you'll position it. It would be best if you measure this space before purchasing the tree.

The Stand

The Tabletop Christmas tree should have a strong stand and pole to hold the weight of the tree and the decorations. You don't want to risk your decorations or anything else close to the tree breaking when the tree falls. A metal pole and stand have proven to be more robust compared to plastic. If you'll add other decorations, make sure the tree can handle the weight.

Construction Materials

As mentioned earlier, PVC and PE are some of the most common materials used in making tabletop trees. PVC is fire resistant and rarely fades. However, it doesn't always look realistic. PE, on the other hand, is more realistic. It's all about personal preference when choosing one over the other. A combination of both would also be great to give the tree a durable and authentic look.

The Branches

The branches can either be hooked or hinged. Hooked are the ones you can detach when storing the tree. Trees with such branches are more challenging to set up, but they are cheaper. Hinged branches, on the other hand, can't be removed. They fold for storage and unfold when you're setting up the tree. Most high-end trees have hinged branches.


I prefer trees with all the decorations and lights attached. Yes, you can't remove them when you want to, but most of the work has been done for you. Luckily, if you don't like the pre-made design, most companies will offer to build a custom design.
