When it comes to decorating your Christmas tree, a lot of the process comes down to personal preference. Some people love tradition. Traditional colors, traditional styles and a traditional approach all leave very little wiggle room. Others aren’t so bound to the classics. If it looks nice, makes you smile or maybe even just came free with your cereal, cram the ornament on the tree. If you fall into the latter category, this list is for you.
In general, most trees are green and host some kind of Christmas lights. However, one of the easiest ways to put your own spin on your tree or to try something a little zany is your choice of ornaments. Ornaments come in all shapes and sizes, meaning that no matter what you’re into, there’s probably an ornament to match.
Ornaments are also a great way to generate Christmas cheer. Whether it’s through sentiment, nostalgia or even humor, picking the right ones can turn your tree from a run-of-the-mill bore fest to an unforgettable visual experience people are sure to remember.
To get you on the right path in creating a popular and memorable tree, we’ve put together a selection of our favorite funny ornaments. The list includes both topical ornaments and ornaments to last through the years. You’ll also find visually funny ornaments as well as options that get your brain thinking.
Plus, as many of these ornaments are on the budget friendly side of things, they also make great options for a Secret Santa exchange.
