Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year for many reasons. All the delicious food is always appealing, and of course, everyone loves giving and receiving gifts. But the most important part of the holidays is spending time with loved ones and making memories for many years to come. Sadly, due to the pandemic, this Thanksgiving and Christmas will look different for many people. Instead of seeing relatives from all over the country, you're probably staying at home this year and are missing all the fun times from year's past. But you can still have a wonderful holiday, even if it isn't quite the same. One thing you can do that can improve your mood is to put up your decorations early. (Yes, science says so.) And there's a wonderfully nostalgic item you should display this year that might bring back the memories of past Christmases. It's a ceramic Christmas tree night light from Amazon.

Ceramic Christmas trees first gained popularity back in the 1970s. If you grew up during the decade, you probably remember the pottery displayed on your mom's or grandma's mantel during December. In the '90s, demand for the trees declined, but like so many trends—like peacock chairs and beloved Pyrex—our favorite nostalgic ceramic Christmas trees have been popping up again to fill our homes (and our hearts) with fond memories of Christmases past.

Of course, we love the classic tabletop ceramic trees, but we're just as fond of the miniature versions. The first one we spotted is an evergreen snow-capped version. The 6-inch tree features 28 multi-color lights and retails for $20. You can also check out another 5-inch tree that features snow-capped branches and a star on top. It sells for $22. There's also another option that's 6.5 inches and all white with rainbow lights that sells for $17.

The nice thing about these tiny Tannenbaums is they can be useful in many different areas throughout your home—all you need is an outlet. They're great to add to your room or your kids; room for a little light in the dark winter mornings. They'd also work well in a hallway to give you a little Christmas cheer in a place you wouldn't typically decorate for the holidays.

Christmas is still a couple of months away, but it never hurts to get ahead on your holiday decorating and add one of these plug-ins to your shopping cart. It's an affordable sentiment that offers a bit of holiday cheer.
