Mini Christmas Tree

I love Christmas trees, and I’ve already put one up on my dorm desk! These miniature trees are so cute, and Target has everything you need to complete the color-coordinated look. I decorated mine with a few ornament sets, a mini tree skirt, and topped it with a gold star!

Table Decor

For a more suitcase-friendly option, spruce up your bedside table with a nutcracker or mini trees. Just a subtle reminder that finals will be over soon and winter break is coming!

Banners and Garland

Another easy touch is adding garland or a banner to your headband or window. If you want to really go all out you can add string lights too!

Okay, not exactly decor, but for me, seasonal treats are essential for getting through studying and writing papers. I stock up on hot chocolate k-cups and Ghirardelli peppermint bark for December!

Happy Holidays and happy decorating!
