What is under your tree?

We got a new Christmas tree and this one has a lot of space between the floor and the bottom branches. Other than wrapping empty boxes, what can I use to fill up that space? It is just my husband and myself until Christmas Day, and even then, we give our grown children money, no grandkids yet, so there isnít really any real gifts to put there. Thanks for your ideas!

Under tree

I have a very small (under two foot) tree. I placed a few larger ornaments under my tree as well as the nativity pieces. My two year old granddaughter loves to stand at the tree table and play with these ornaments as well as the nativity set. Itís a joy to watch and listen to her as she creates imaginative scenes and conversations.

You could put a train set there with tracks and little houses.

Some good suggestions from PPs.

I also think if you have a beautiful tree skirt then the tree will look beautiful even if few gifts or no gifts are under the tree.

A tree skirt would be lovely. Do you have a lot of long or large ornaments? I put my biggest ornaments on the bottom branches.

I have a tree collar. I like it much better than a tree skirt. It takes up more space around the tree. I have this one.

My mom uses fabric under the tree, fills it with newspaper and ties it up around the trunk.
It looks similar to this:

I used to have a tree skirt with a cute scene on it. EX and I just did stocking stuffers for each other, so there weren't presents under the tree.

I also have some ceramic Christmas village pieces that I painted, and they look cute under the tree, too.

We do very little in the way of gift exchanging. I always fill out the bottom of my tree with decorative Christmas gift tins I've gotten over the years. (Like the kind you get cookies in.) I store ornaments in them, then toss them under the tree.

I have my momís nativity scene under my tree. That is where she would put it every year so when she passed I took her nativity set and continue the tradition. Of course at any given time you can also find my cat under the tree as well!
