Whether you’ve been putting off putting up your holiday decorations or you’ve been playing Mariah Carey’s Christmas album since Nov. 1, for those who celebrate Christmas, it’s time to start thinking about a tree. While real trees are non-negotiable for some people, there are plenty of perks in investing in a fake tree — especially if you have kids or pets. Speaking as someone who grew up with a faux tree, they require less maintenance, are much safer, and nowadays they look more authentic than ever. And if you live in a small space, there are tons of miniature options out there that still pack plenty of holiday spirit. We rounded up some of our favorite small faux Christmas trees below — perfect for even the tiniest of spaces — that are getting us in a festive mood (yes, I’m writing this while listening to the Nutcracker soundtrack).
