These 2020 Christmas Ornaments Are the Perfect Keepsake for This Ridiculous Year
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.
The Best 2020 Christmas Ornaments

Toilet Paper Ornaments
We all remember the craze that descended on grocery stores at the start of the pandemic. Many people stocked up on food and household items in case they had to quarantine and toilet paper was the hot-ticket item. (As cases begin to surge again, learn what to stock up on without being a hoarder.)
Face Mask Ornaments
Face masks are an effective form of helping slow the spread of the coronavirus, according to the CDC. These ornaments give a holiday spin to the most important accessory of the year.
Custom Family Ornaments
These ornaments are perfect if you can't celebrate in person this year. Send your mom, brother or cousin a custom ornament featuring your family (pets too!).
This summer, hiking was one of the few activities that you could participate in while social distancing from others. These ornaments are perfect for celebrating your newfound love of the outdoors.
Many people discovered the joys of baking this year, especially when it came to bread. Get these ornaments for that one friend who just couldn't stop talking about their sourdough starter.
TV Show Ornaments
To say I watched TV this year would be a massive understatement. I know I'm not alone in my countless hours of bingeing TV shows. These ornaments feature some popular sitcom characters and their catchphrases with a 2020-themed spin.
Dumpster Fire Ornaments
This year has been crazy and for those of you who are ready to completely say goodbye to all that is 2020, a dumpster fire ornament might be the perfect keepsake.
