If you grew up before the 2000s, you likely had a porcelain or ceramic Christmas tree in your home. No, we don’t mean a 6-footer. We’re talking about the tabletop Christmas tree with built-in lights and a star on top.

Sound familiar yet? This Christmas decoration was a staple back in the day. You could even find miniature versions that plugged into the wall as a nightlight and two-foot trees that spun or played music.

The adorable vintage trees left the home decor scene years ago, but they’re making a comeback in a big way. Homeowners searching for that touch of holiday nostalgia are clamoring for these trees on Amazon, Ebay, and more. In fact, larger models on Ebay are selling for more than $100!

If dropping three figures on a tabletop tree isn’t in the cards this Christmas, Amazon has some affordable options, like this $24.99 ceramic tree just under a foot tall. An even smaller version can be found at Target in white or green.

We especially love how ceramic trees look on a holiday mantel. If you have modern decor, a ceramic Christmas tree will give your home a festive touch of whimsy. A green ceramic tree with multicolored lights is the most iconic design, but don’t pass up your chance to get an all-white ceramic tree for a subtler approach. The one above from Lenox has gold accents for an elegant touch. You can even find replacement lights if you’d like to have a glowing all-red tree.

The holidays are a time for love, family, and tradition. Bring back all those warm feelings you had as a child with a ceramic Christmas tree you can hand down to each generation.
