Kelly Brianne Clarkson is an American singer-songwriter and occasional actress. "Underneath the Tree" is a song from her sixth studio album Wrapped in Red (2013). Written by Clarkson along with Greg Kurstin, who handled its production, it is a Christmas-themed song that sings of gratitude for companionship during the holidays, in which the beloved is being referred as the only present needed "underneath the tree". Accompanied by various instrumental sounds, the song prominently incorporates a Wall of Sound treatment along with sleigh bells and bell chimes to resonate a holiday atmosphere. "Underneath the Tree" was first released to Adult Contemporary radio stations on November 5, 2013 by RCA Records as the lead single from the album.

"Underneath the Tree" has been praised by music critics, who considered it as the main highlight of Wrapped in Red and lauded its potential to be a holiday classic. They also complimentary compared it to the 1994 modern Christmas standard "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey.

You're here, where you should be
Snow is falling
As the carolers sing
It just wasn't the same
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight
You're all that I need underneath the tree

Tonight I'm going to hold you close
Make sure that you know
I was lost before you
Christmas was cold and grey
Another holiday alone to celebrate
But then one day everything changed
You're all I need underneath the tree

You're here, where you should be
Snow is falling
As the carolers sing
It just wasn't the same
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight
You're all that I need underneath the tree

I found what I was looking for
A love that's meant for me
A heart that's mine completely
Knocked me right off my feet
And this year I will fall
With no worries at all
Because you are near and everything is clear
You're all I need underneath the tree

You're here, where you should be
Snow is falling
As the carolers sing
It just wasn't the same
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight
You're all that I need underneath the tree

And then, one day everything changed
You're all I need underneath the tree

You're here, where you should be
Snow is falling
As the carolers sing
It just wasn't the same
Alone on Christmas day
Presents, what a beautiful sight
Don't mean a thing if you ain't holding me tight
You're all that I need underneath the tree, tonight.
