Those of us in the northern latitudes look forward to chilly temperatures, falling snow and cozy times by the fireplace when Christmastime comes around. But for lots of folks in other parts of the world, Christmas has less to do with snow and snuggling than all the other trappings of the holiday.
Major retailers are getting hip to the tropical vibe and offering holiday decorations that capture the feeling of a beachy Christmas. Even the Minnesota-based Target is selling Christmas palm trees this year for revelers who want to reflect their warm-weather holiday season — or who just need a cheerful break from all the snow.
If you’re in the market for a sunny Christmas look this year, check out the online finds we’ve collected below:
Puleo 6-Foot Artificial Christmas Palm Tree
This artificial palm tree comes pre-lit with twinkly white lights and just enough faux-foliage on which to hang a few ornaments. For smaller spaces, 5-foot and 4-foot versions are available. Just $69.99 at Target.
Puleo 3.5-foot/6-foot Double Pre-Lit Artificial Christmas Tree
To make a stronger statement, check out this duo of yuletide palms. Like the single-tree version, they’re pre-lit and ready to glow. The two of them together are $106.99 at Target.
