Small Space Holiday Decor Perfect for Apartment Dwellers

Come December, almost everyone is in the holiday spirit. Lights are hung, trees are trimmed and tinsel lines every nook and cranny of the house. But what do you do when you apartment takes merry little Christmas to a whole new level of small? Don’t miss out on the holiday cheer. Whether you’re a Grinch without an extra inch or your place qualifies for the nice list in regards to square footage, these festive pieces are the perfect size for your space.

Turns out the tree wouldn’t fit through the door, let alone in any corner of your place. No biggie. These lights look like ornaments and pack a powerful glow, but they won’t take up too much of your precious room.  

If you can sneak a tree in, you’re probably not going for the seven-foot wonder or a freshly-cut evergreen. An artificial pencil tree is thin and *bonus* doesn’t leave whatever space you have covered in pine needles.

No matter where you hang your stockings (the top of the fridge, the window, etc.), a cute stocking holder helps add some extra coziness and practical pizazz to the room.

Sometimes the holidays are stressful. If gift shopping has you down or you just can’t bare to fit anymore decor, fill these glasses up and treat yourself to a drink. It’s the season of giving and gifts to you from you totally count.

Not all gifts come wrapped up in paper packages or tied up with string. Your apartment becomes its own present when you add a cool, sequined bow and skip out on the usual wreaths. 

Lovers of the great indoors know that the weather outside is frightful, so if you’re hoping to let it snow without leaving the couch, this vase is for you. The stunner brings a pristine coat of winter white to your room without the necessary boots, coats and gloves.

The kids asked for a pet this year and here’s the next best thing. This adorable furry friend can help add a fun, quirky touch to any area of your space, without any of the hassle of a real live animal.

'Teas the season, and if you’re still not cozy and warm, why not whip yourself up a nice cup of something herbal and sip to your heart’s content? This kettle, which gives even the smallest kitchens a seasonally appropriate vibe, and your favorite tea is all you need.

When your home is too small for a real fire, scents are the next best thing. As long as three wicks isn’t too much to spare, you can fill your room with the quintessential smell of Christmas. 

If you’ve stuffed in all of the holiday decor that you can handle, make Rudolph proud, throw on this onesie before bed and revel in the Christmas spirit. Happy Holidays!
