There’s no right way to decorate for the holidays. While it may seem like a huge tree with tons of ornaments is the only real way to celebrate, it’s all about what you prefer and what works in your space. So, especially for smaller rooms or apartments, a mini Christmas tree will allow you to embrace the holiday spirit without having to go all out with an possibly unmanageable 6-foot option. Just like with larger trees, you have the choice of going with a live or artificial pick. Sure, a live tree may feel more authentic (and that smell!), but if you’re not dedicated to giving it fresh water, the faux route might be the safer option. Either way, you’ll be ready for Saint Nick to climb down the chimney with our list of top-rated, adorable mini Christmas trees, both real and fake.
