I can't believe I'm about to say this, but Christmas is only days away, and I've yet to put up a tree in my house. I blame it on a crazy schedule -- somehow the month is slipping away, and I haven't found time to get my holiday cheer going on. Maybe you're in a similar boat, or maybe you have a teeny-tiny living space and think you can't fit a tree in your home on top of everything else. Or, heck, maybe the budget just isn't there this year (because, honestly, trees and the decorations they require really aren't cheap)! Or, better yet, maybe you're trying to be a bit greener this holiday season. Whatever the case may be, I've rounded up some cool Christmas tree alternatives that would appeal to any and all of those in situations such as these.
