If you're an avid beach goer and diehard summer lover, stepping into the wintery months can be a struggle. There's a serious lack of sun, sand, and seashells in your life, and your favorite beach totes are stored in the closet where you usually keep your Christmas decorations. Instead of longing for beach towels and cute bikinis, shop for sea glass Christmas trees that'll bring the beachy vibe you adore to your space.

These little treasures exist and are the perfect addition to your floating shelves, mantle, or kitchen table. Sea glass Christmas trees are entirely made of tiny slivers of, well, sea glass — which, as you may already know, can be found on the beach in beautiful shades of green, blue, brown, or white. Some of these products are able to glow, thanks to LED lights that have been built into them. Other products feature a mini starfish on top or are decorated with shells that look like ornaments.

Currently, they're available to shop from sellers on Etsy, who may collect the sea glass themselves to create such a unique item. You'll for shore want to get one if you live by the beach, or are simply missing the days of sitting on a lounge chair in the sand. You can then take beach-inspired decor to the next level by decorating your evergreen tree with starfish and the shells you've collected during your summer trips. TBH, once you pick up a sea glass Christmas tree like these, you can run with this stunning theme.
