If John Galliano’s underwater themed Christmas tree at Claridge’s has inspired you to think outside the box this year, then we have five alternative Christmas trees to appeal to your inner avant garde. From driftwood to cardboard get inspired...

Driftwood tree

Made from natural driftwood this Christmas tree brings a rustic, beach feel to the home. It comes in different sizes, from 2ft to 5ft, and you can recycle it year after year. Available from Boxbrownietrading.co.uk, from £50

Table top tree

This little red metal tree is perfect for those lacking space or for people who want to bring a bit of festivity to their desktop. It's available in two striking designs and has a stylish, contemporary and yet traditional feel.

Available from John Lewis or call 08456 049 049, £14

IKEA tree

The SNÖVITA tree from IKEA is for the minimalists out there, perfect for hanging up to 48 of your favourite baubles from.

Available from IKEA, £6.99 for stand

Snowing tree

This stylish black tree comes with cascading snow. Artificial snowballs fall from the top giving you a life like snowing effect, and you don’t have to worry about the mess because the special base catches it all and re-circulates it.

Eco tree

For the eco-minded Reno De Medici have launched the 100% recycled cardboard Christmas tree. They’re made from recycled fibres and are surprisingly stylish and resistant. With care they should last for years.
