Triitme- an online design and decoration store- offers some alternatives. For instance you could opt for these lamps in the shape of a tree from Zava Luce. Icon X-mas is a 2kg aluminium lamp, designed by Massimo Rosati. The ironic lamp wants to play with light, with the intent of lighting up dark and boring winter days. It costs €98 (bulb not included) and is available in green or red.
An other idea is a birch plywood tree from Lovi Oy. A company which is located in Northern Finland (doesn’t Santa come from that area as well?!). The trees come in a small (30 by 17,5 cm) or medium size (60 by 35 cm), and are flat packed. Available in natural wood, light green, dark green or red. Prices start at €70. Plus, when you buy a Lovi tree, you help to plant new trees in in areas of the world which are affected by drought, erosion and flood. That’s one great Christmas spirit!
