Christmas is coming...

It's time to be thinking about how you're going to deck the halls this year.

The thing is though, as much as we might want to get the biggest Christmas tree in all the land, it might not be feasible.

Whether you live in a tiny flat, you've got a cat or you've got a kid... there are things to consider when choosing your tree.

One mom has come up with an ingenious space-saving DIY Christmas tree that can't get knocked over.

Make a statement this Christmas by doing things a little differently...

Christmas trees can make a statement...

I mean, when you come into someone's home over the holiday season it's the first thing you notice.

They can also be a hazard.

Cats are naturally compelled to climb trees...

Cats also love balls...

So a tree covered in baubles in their home is going to tempt them.

You can't blame the cats...

But you can consider thinking of getting an alternative tree to prevent having a living room full of smashed baubles.

It can be hard to get the size right...

Remembering how much space you have to play with can be difficult when picking your tree. It's natural for us just think we want the biggest and best. Of course, that can cause problems when trying to get it through the front door.

The taller the tree...

the harder it can be to decorate.

Sometimes it's fun to think outside the box...

Obviously giving your child the responsibility of being the Christmas tree is a bit far...

The concept of banishing the traditional tree is becoming more popular.

In a world of eco-conscious warriors, chopping down trees to decorate and display in the home for a few weeks is becoming more and more unpopular.

You could try pet-proofing your tree...

As effective as this tactic is at keeping pets at bay it isn't that aesthetically pleasing.

Baby-proofing.

One way to protect your toddler from pulling down the Christmas tree would be putting a baby-pen around the tree. Alternatively, you could put the baby pen around the baby... but eh, up to you.

Alternative tree inspo.

This simple yet effective tree design only requires finding a couple of sticks and a bit of string... in theory.

A hotel in Dubai came up with this interesting design...

I wonder if the maintenance department noticed they were missing a ladder...

Good luck climbing that...

One cat owner creating a pet-proof tree out of a twig and some metal wires.. hmm, pretty.

Who needs a tree when you've got baubles in your beard?

I wonder if anyone actually wears baubles in their beard during the holiday season...

If you believe it, we'll believe it...

I mean this Christmas tree alternative isn't going to win any prizes but it is pet-proof and it does sort of look like a Christmas tree, right?

If, like Donna, you happen to have a chalkboard wall...

Then this novel chalkboard Christmas tree design is a great idea!

But it's another design that has got everyone excited online...
