Hey everyone! Today I’m sharing my Christmas Tree Reveal! I absolutely adore how my tree looks and it looks perfect in my apartment. I actually bought this tree two years ago a day after Christmas because I knew it would be at least 50% off! I ended up getting it for about $80 which I feel was really affordable for a 7 foot flocked tree. I found it at Walmart and couldn’t have been more excited to finally set it up!
Christmas has been my favorite holiday for most, if not all, of my life! Everything feels lighter and happier, the lights are bright and stunning, and I love setting up the tree. My family and I always set it up the weekend after thanksgiving and it’s been that way for over a decade! We listen to Christmas music and put all the ornaments up. It’s something I always enjoy and makes me ready to tis the season!
Finding the Perfect Tree Topper
Okay so yes, my tree topper is Dobby from Harry Potter. I have NO SHAME! Etsy obviously knows what I like (the cookies are HOT on my browsers apparently). This little guy was a recommended item and I knew I needed to snatch him up! He was custom made and I adore him. His little Christmas hat his removable, so I think I’ll keep him around all year!
If you’re trying to decide on a tree topper, then I have some advice! You can obviously always go with a classic like a gold star or an angel, but if you wanna mix it up, go for it! I’ve been seeing so many great themed tree toppers such as: Darth Vader, Baby Yoda, and even the Evil Queen from sleeping beauty! Whatever fandom you love, consider using a themed item for your tree topper!

Where to Shop for Ornaments
I look to various places when it comes to finding ornaments. For general, bulk ornaments, I always check out Walmart and Target! They always seem to have the most for the best price. Christmas Tree Shops is also a good option if you happen to live near one! That’s where I ended up grabbing all of the pink and gold ornaments that are around the tree.
When it comes to other ornaments, I’m pretty sentimental about them! My mom has always collected ornaments when we go on vacations. I’ve somehow also picked up on this habit and now try to grab one wherever I go! I also love getting more custom ornaments on Etsy. That’s where I found this cute little felt Ruth Bader Ginsburg ornament! I love it so much.

Where to Buy an Affordable Christmas Tree
As I mentioned at the top of my post, I bought my tree on December 26th! Generally most stores mark down things by 50% or even up to 70% off the day after a holiday! This is an awesome time to buy because you’re getting such a great discount on an otherwise pricey item. Going EARLY is also a great idea. I was at Target when they opened on the 26th to get some of the decor I have featured in my post (here)!
I also wanted to make this as easy as I could for y’all, so I’m rounding up some affordable trees below! If you’re in the market for a new tree, come back to this post and grab one on the 26th! Then you can get one at an awesome price. These are also already affordable trees, so if you are still needing one for this year, be sure to shop my top picks!
How to Create a Gift Wrapping Theme
Every year I always decide on a theme for my gifts! Usually it involves brown wrapping paper with some sort of colored paper mixed in. I love this mix, but this year I wanted EVERYTHING in my home to flow. I decided on white, pink, gold, and a little bit of chartreuse! Target ended up having all of these colors, so I only had to go to one place for all my paper.
If you’re also trying to decide on a them for your gifts, start with what colors are in your decor! Mine had a lot of white and gold, so this fit perfectly. If you have more red and green decor, then try and fit your paper with that! It’s obviously different if you have kids. They will likely want some type of themed paper, but that’s totally okay too! You can likely find some chic, on brand paper.
