Wire Star Tree Topper

No offense to angels, but sometimes we dig the look of something a bit more low key on top of our Christmas trees. This simple, wire bent star tree topper almost feels handmade. It's a bit more casual, but it still totally embodies the joyful holiday spirit.

Christmas Tree Tapestry

Is setting up a giant towering Christmas tree in your living room every year mandatory? Definitely not. If pine needles all over your floor or the cat drinking the muddy water at the bottom of the tree gives you hives, why not switch to a pretty Christmas tree tapestry like this one instead? With this fab tapestry, we give you permission to go treeless.

Pom Pom Wreath

Ok, sure: pine wreaths are definitely cool for the Christmas season, but this baby makes us realize we've long been underestimating the power of the pom pom. With all the bright colors and fluffy, fat pom poms, this unique wreath is the opposite of traditional, which is why we love it so much!

Totem Pillar Candles

These gorgeously shaped totem candles are definitely not your typical holiday candles, but that doesn't mean that they wouldn't look rad on your holiday table!

You can use a platter to catch the drips if you don't have candle holders.

Photo Clip String Lights

If you really want to avoid the holiday decoration scene, why not "decorate" with pics of your own family and friends? These twinkly string lights feature clips that allow you to show off fave photos of everyone you love and hang festive ornaments. If you want to get super creative, you can even skip family photos and come up with another kitschy theme: 90's pop stars, puppy dogs, etc. Then print out pics to match up with your chosen theme.
