12 Best Christmas Glass Tree Toppers for a Jolly Xmas

For some, it represents the angel Gabriel from the Nativity scene, for others, it’s the depiction of the Star of Bethlehem; and for all, it’s the final touch to the decoration of a Christmas tree. We are talking about Christmas tree finials here, now more commonly known as tree toppers.

The use of tree toppers gained popularity during the Victorian era when every home in England had started to adorn their interiors with richly decorated Christmas trees.

Now, tree toppers are available in all materials and shapes. From blown glass to plastic and from the fairy outlines to the Santa Clause, you can find tree toppings that you can match all sorts of aesthetics and Christmas traditions.

Glass tree toppers are a combination of several elements. At one hand, they look delicate and stunning. On the other hand, they also appeal to the zest of centuries-old tradition that plastic and paper tree toppers can’t bring forth.

As we are not really far from “the Season to be jolly”, so let’s have a look at 12 of the best Christmas glass tree toppers that you can choose from to finalize your winter decorations.

 Christmas Glass Tree Topper Buying Guide

With the above list of 12 best glass tree toppers, we have tried to save you from the tiresome searching from your Christmas décor shopping. Moreover, we are going to share some important points that will help you in picking the right tree topper and finial, even from outside of this list.

1. The Topper Type

By type, we mean the distinctive shape that any tree topper has. From a star to a Santa and totem to miniature figures, you have noticed that a tree topper can have many different shapes. The star and totem-shaped tree toppers are the evergreen choice for Christmas tree décor. Nonetheless, Santa statues as finials are also popular in households with kids.

If you are in a mood to do a bit of experiment with your Christmas decoration, then you can do so with miniature trees and owl statues as well.

2. The Size

Many people often overlook this aspect while buying a tree topper and, as a result, end up with a finial that can’t be used in the right manner. For instance, getting anything taller than 9 inches for a tree that is already touching the ceiling is not a good idea.

So, keep in mind what space you have between the top of the tree and the ceiling. Also, get a topper in proportion with the size of the tree. Buying a 13-inch topper for a small Christmas tree will only make it look awkward and out of place.

3. All-Side or One-Side Finishing

Many Christmas trees are placed in the corners or beside the wall thus keeping only its front visible.  This is the reason why many tree toppers come with only one side finished. Such partially finished finials won’t go well on a tree that stands in the center of your lounge. Similarly, if you want to use tree toppers also as standalone décor pieces then go for options that are finished from all sides.

The best glass tree topers we have reviewed here all finished from all angles and aspects. You can pick any of them without worrying about the issue of multiple viewpoints.

We hope that this piece will effectively help you in getting the right tree topper for the finishing touch of your Christmas tree decoration.

Merry Xmas!
