If you grew up before the 2000s, you likely remember having a porcelain or ceramic Christmas tree in your home, or maybe you associate them with Grandma's annual holiday decor. The tabletop Christmas trees with built-in lights and a star on top was a Christmas decor staple for so many years—you could even find miniature versions that plugged into the wall as a nightlight and two-foot trees that spun or played music!

The iconic trees gained popularity in the 1970s and now, more than 40 years later, they're making a major comeback. There are currently more than 13,300 Instagram posts tagged #ceramicchristmastree, and copycat versions of the figures are already popping up on store shelves.

Since there was a several-decade lapse in production of the trees, original 1970s creations can sell for hundreds of dollars now. Luckily, companies like Target and Amazon jumped on the trend a few years ago and began selling new versions for a fraction of the price, and we've rounded up the best deals. To make sure you can display your own nostalgic Christmas decor, call Grandma, hit the local thrift store, or purchase one of our picks.

The adorable vintage trees left the home decor scene years ago, but they’re making a comeback in a big way. Since they've grown so much in popularity, there are dozens of options available online—but they're not always cheap. Larger models are selling on eBay for hundreds of dollars! If you're just looking for a touch of holiday nostalgia, opt for a smaller tree from Target instead. This 15-inch tree is adorned with 64 miniature multi-colored lights for an extra festive touch.

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. This 15-inch tree comes in a snow-topped gold design and is adorned with 66 tiny glass bulbs in a rainbow of colors.

A green tree with multicolored lights is the most iconic ceramic tree design, but don’t pass up your chance to get an all-white tree for a more subtle approach. This white tree with rainbow lights is neutral enough to fit in with farmhouse Christmas decor, and the multi-color lights add a bit of extra Christmas cheer. This version also comes in blue, gold, green, and silver.

If you're willing to splurge on a larger piece, there are bigger ceramic trees available for around $100. This 20-inch tree is battery-operated and has a gorgeous holly and snowflake pattern around the base. Plus, it's designed for all kinds of weather, so it can be displayed indoors or out. It's estimated to ship the week before Christmas, so you may want to grab a cheaper option as well if you're planning to decorate early.

We especially love how ceramic trees look on a holiday mantel or displayed in front of the Christmas tree. If you have modern holiday decor, a ceramic tree with multicolor bulbs will give your home a festive touch of whimsy. This 15-inch tree is covered in a gold glaze that's traditional enough to fit in with a classic red and green color scheme, but also fun enough to tie into a more modern holiday display.

While the classic green and white trees will always remind us of Grandma's house at the holidays, we've been eyeing the less-traditional tree colors available this year. If you're decking the halls with pink Christmas decor, add this 10-inch rose gold tree to your Amazon cart. The shiny pink ceramic tree is covered in a collection of rainbow lights and topped with a white star.

I think they are wonderful. I have a beautiful white one that my ex mother-in-law made for me about 40 years ago. I put it out every Christmas.
