The Cardboard Christmas Tree from Cloud Gate Design puts all those post-Christmas-morning toy boxes to good use by using recycled, corrugated cardboard for its simple, triangular set-up.

The trees come in 1-foot and 3-foot high versions -- and in white or basic brown -- and leave you plenty of room for decorating with customized cardboard ornaments, foil, paint, and other personalized touches. Even better: the company donates part of its profits to Trees for America, which plants seedlings in ravaged forests. (The Cardboard Christmas Tree, $10-$20)
