On high: 10 best Christmas tree toppers

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Forget tatty angels or ropey fairies, these top of the tree decs will finish off your festive foliage in style this Christmas

1. Handmade angel Christmas tree topper

We love this simple but pretty angel. Made from thick, hand-felted merino wool embroidered with silver stars and with wings crafted from vintage sheet music, she's understated but different enough to make a statement. (Height: 21cm)

£11.95, notonthehighstreet.com

2. Artifactually glass tree topper

This beautiful, hand-etched glass topper trimmed with 24 carat gold by Artifactually, a Surrey-based, family run company, has a lovely Victorian feel. A striking statement piece that’ll look fab on a mid-height or large tree. Available in six colours. (Height: 30cm)

£44.95, artifactually.co.uk

3. Koziol Flake Decorations

This funky translucent plastic star will look great when you’ve got your fairy lights switched on. And it’s made from 100% recyclable materials – a good budget and environmentally-friendly option.

£5, koziol-shop.co.uk   

4. Pug tree topper

Pugs in various guises are everywhere this year, so it’s no surprise they’ve got in on the Christmas decoration act. With his purple sparkly wings, gold star and suitably forlorn expression, this guy will add a bit of comedy to your decs. (Height: 15cm)

£9.99, volteface.co.uk

5. Gisela Graham sheer red fairy

Yes, it’s a fairy, but a pretty jazzy one, with a bright sheer red dress and a gold star detail. Gisela Graham’s quirky pieces are popular with collectors. Why not join them this Christmas? (Height: 28cm)

£15, christmastimeuk.com

6. Driftwood tree top star

For anyone going for a more rustic, simple look with their festive foliage this year, this driftwood star has a cool, Scandinavian feel. (Height:15cm)

£9.95, idyllhome.co.uk
 

7. Steiff Birdie feline

Steiff are known for their collector’s teddy bears but this little limited edition birdie — there are only 2000 of them worldwide— complete with the trademark button and tag, can be clipped to the top of the tree for a sweet but understated little topper.

£59, steiff.com  

8. Colour in star tree topper Christmas card

A clever idea, this card has a star design which can be coloured in and cut out to make into a unique and inexpensive ornament for the top of the tree - ideal for keeping the little ones busy while you wrestle with the fairy lights and tinsel. There’s also a fairy design.

£4.25, notonthehighstreet.com

9. Tesco glitter bow tree topper

Bows aren’t just for the pressies under the tree, this sparkly purple number will brighten up your tree and give it a modern feel.  And it’s great value too.

£4, tesco.com

10. Glitter starburst tree topper

A sparkly option that's nicely different to a bog-standard star. We think the white version will look dazzling perched on a tree with a contemporary colour scheme. It also comes in more traditional gold and silver. (Height: 34cm)

£12.95, liberty.co.uk
