The grump trees

Trader Joe’s new Grinch-inspired item for Christmas has been trending recently.

It’s because it’s a small Christmas tree that will remind you of the grumpy Grinch.

The small trees are actually lemon cypress trees that are found in California.

They come in a red bag with a green tie. The small tree has a red ribbon wrapped around it with a single Christmas bauble hanging from its tip.

The look is very similar to the Grinch holding a Christmas bauble in one of its posters.

It definitely shows the Grinch’s spirit but has that Christmas holiday theme.

It’s contradicting but it goes well together.

Why do we love them

Depending on your location, each Grump tree may sell from $7 – $9.

As grinchy as it is, there are many reasons why people are falling in love with the Grump tree. Here are some of the many reasons why.

  • We love that it is unique and fun! Whoever thought of the Grinch theme for a tiny tree is a genius!

  • The Grinch is a timeless character, and seeing a tree that reminds you of it will surely sell.
  • If you are into minimalism, then the Grump tree is perfect for you.
  • No space for a big tree? The Grump tree can be placed anywhere in your home. You can even place one in every room.
  • It’s also a great gift idea.

  • You can also put one on your office table.
  • If you’re bored and have lots of time in your hands, create one, or two, or as many as you want.
  • Once Christmas is over, no need to store it in your basement. Simply plant the lemon cypress tree and watch it grow. (It can grow up to 10 feet!)
  • If you love DIY, then you can make one yourself!

DIY Grump trees, anyone?

Speaking of DIY projects, surely, someone who has seen the Grump tree already had an idea to make their own versions of it.

This project is pretty simple to make, but it can be addicting because it’s so fun to do.

Pot a tiny cypress tree. Then using a wire, wrap it to resemble the curved design. You can use a ribbon to cover the wire, and lastly, put the bauble at the tip.
