The holiday season is in full swing and that means it’s time to decorate. But if your version of going all-out on decor doesn’t mean going for 6-foot-tall Christmas trees, then Costco has a fun alternative that’s ready-made just for you. The big-box retailer is selling mini flocked Christmas trees in store, and they’re not only small-space and budget-friendly, they’re no fuss to set up, too.

In fact, these live spruce trees already come with their own LED lights that run on an eight-hour timer and are potted in an adorable white winter wonderland-themed pot, perfect for any decor style. And how fun is the flocking on each branch? You can have a white Christmas no matter where in the world you live!

While the trees may look too good to be true, they’re not, so buyers need to make sure to water theirs frequently to ensure they’ll make it through the season — and maybe even into your permanent houseplant collection. Each potted spruce is selling for $20 in stores at Costco, and if the hyped-over LED Christmas trees are any indication, these will surely sell out soon, too. 

Unfortunately, because the flocked spruce tree seems to be a warehouse-only item, if your local Costco doesn’t have it in stock on the floor, you may miss out. Luckily, there’s a similar tree at Home Depot right now that also comes with its own lights and pinecone details.

This tree is the perfect size for small spaces, standing at just 2 feet tall. Because it’s artificial, there’s no watering is required.

If you love the idea of having a live tree on display without all the bells and whistles, Home Depot has another great option in stock. It comes with a red velvet bow and matching pot and has been left bare so you can add your own personal touches, or leave it as-is for a minimalistic look. It stands at just 10 inches tall, making it ideal for tabletops.

However, if you do have the space and the budget to go big and like the idea of pre-lit trees, you can check out retailers like Michael’s and Home Depot for their sky-high options. Both retailers are selling beautiful artificial trees for a steal.

No matter how big your tree is, it’ll spruce up your space and your decor.
