Luck Sea Snowman Christmas Tree Topper

$13 (WAS $14), AMAZON

A snowman is a timeless symbol of the holiday season, and the Snowman Christmas Tree Topper adds a touch of whimsy. It's meant to appear as though it's embracing your Christmas tree, with a face (14.5 inches), arms (21.6 inches), and scarf (23.6 inches) you can adjust to fit your tree. Though a branch at the top of the tree will offer structure, you can further fill the snowman out by stuffing it with newspaper, according to shoppers. Plus, the arms include interior wire that you can adjust as needed.

"​​I love the way this turned out," said one of the nearly 500 five-star reviewers. "I have a slimmer 7.5 foot tree. I stuffed the hat part of the snowman with a couple newspapers and used a couple empty wrapping paper rolls to get the whole thing to stand up straight. Love that the arms have wire so you can bend and shape how you want! Overall a great purchase and totally worth the price."

Kurt Adler 8-Inch Gold Glittered 5-Point Star Christmas Tree Topper

$14 (WAS $21), AMAZON

Go glam with a dash of glitter thanks to the Gold Glittered 5-Point Star Christmas Tree Topper. Above all, shoppers say the durable plastic topper's glitter stays in place, so you won't find specks throughout your home during the holiday season (or well after it ends). It measures 8 inches in height from the base to the highest point, and the star features an intricate cutout design.

"The quality of this item surprised me," said one of the 400 five-star reviewers. "It does have glitter all over it, so I was a little worried that it'd get everywhere while putting it up, but the glitter stayed on and the star looks really great. It seems sturdy and well-made. It is a little heavy, but I just doubled over the top branch and stuck this star on and it's standing perfectly straight."

"​​This tree topper is amazing," wrote a reviewer. "I'm so glad we ended up picking this up. It projects the snowflakes to the ceiling nicely. We have 12-13 foot ceilings and it still looked great! We will be using this on the tree next year."
