Shake things up with an upside-down Christmas tree–and yes, this is very much a thing. The tree design is inspired by trend that dates back to the Middle Ages, when households in Central Europe would hang trees from their ceilings. Ariana Grande is also a fan of this quirky trend. While hanging a seven-foot tree upside down in your living room might be a bit of a hassle, you can get the same effect with an upside-down tree like this that rests securely on a on a base. What it lacks in lighting it makes up for in festive novelty.

Some of the best artificial Christmas trees are actually more modest specimens that have emerged to suit small spaces and/or folks with contemporary taste. Case in point? This handmade Scandinavian-style pick with dowels for tree branches (no fluffing required!). Each dowel is made of sustainably sourced maple wood, and multiple ornaments can hang along each one. And, while it may look complicated, it’s straightforward to assemble and disassemble. The tree also comes with a high-quality storage bag for safekeeping when the holidays are over.
