    I am itching to put up my christmas tree.

    Every time we have travelled we have bought christmas decorations, and I just love them all.

    will wait a few more weeks though, as DH really doesnt like putting it up too early

    Any suggestions on what to put up instead of a traditional tree? Seen anything online or a bit quirky? Hubby is not a tree fan and without kids the last 15 years have gotten sadder, so this year I'm looking for alternatives. (We did have a massive santa for a few years but he retired)

    How have you all gone with Xmas trees and toddlers??!
    Gingermillie I have always just put our tree up with no barricades. All of the kids help me so by the time it's up they are usually over it and they mostly leave it alone. I don't put any presents under until much closer though.

    I'm loving some of these alternatives! If we didn't have a tree I would consider some of these!

    We got married close to Christmas and spent it overseas on our honeymoon one year so I couldn't be bothered to put up a whole tree, only to take it down as soon as we got back!

    I made this little book tree for the table instead.

    We've got no room for a tree so will need to do some rearranging. Ours usually goes up the first weekend in December.

    I walked passed a homewares shop today (I think it was Matchbox?) and they had a wire cactus with fairy lights on it. I thought that could be a kinda quirky alternative.

    Our is up, finally.
    Not perfect, I wanted more lights and tinsel but that would involve more shopping and I can't be bothered.
    Very kiddy themed.
    DD has pulled most of the trinkets off already.

    Ours went up 2 days ago and stayed up looking perfect for 2 hours.
    The cat has decided it should be naked and part of his cat tower. He keeps tipping over.
