Normally, I'm a staunch advocate for holding off on anything Christmas-related until the day after Thanksgiving. That means switching the channel whenever a holiday movie comes on or avoiding certain radio stations while I drive. Then once Black Friday rolls around, I'm more than happy to get in the Christmas spirit. But in a year like 2020, which has been stressful to say the least, I'm totally open to breaking my rule and embracing the Christmas season early.

While I'm already knee-deep in watching Christmas movies (Netflix has some great ones!), I'm just starting my holiday shopping. And with many people turning to online shopping this year, I need to order my gifts now to allow for ample shipping time. And one gift that's definitely on my list: ornaments!

Ornaments are a perfect way to commemorate this year. And the best place to get unique ornaments is Etsy. Not only are you supporting a small business, but it's easy to find an ornament that fits the personality and interests of your loved ones. To help you find the perfect gift, I've pulled together my favorite ornaments that highlight some of the biggest topics of the year. They're guaranteed to put a smile on your face in years to come as you decorate your tree.
