Star Christmas tree toppers seem to be really popular this year and you can find just about any design of a star topper that you would want.

Another really interesting tree topper that you may be interested in is the color changing star topper. The colors actually morph and change as the topper just sits on top of the tree. This topper would be awesome for a colorful Christmas tree or would be cute to impress young kids this holiday season.

Of course you can always stick with the classic style angel for the top of your tree as well.

One popular trend for the past few years is the snowman head tree topper. These are great for making your very own snowman Christmas tree or just for something a bit different and fun.

How To Choose The Perfect Tree Topper For Your Tree

It can definitely be overwhelming looking at all the toppers and trying to decide which one may be the right one for your tree. I mean, how do you choose between a star, bow, or even one of the many unique Christmas tree toppers?

I have a few tips to keep in mind to make choosing the perfect Christmas tree topper fun this year.

Consider The Size Of Your Christmas Tree

One of the most important things to consider before you buy a topper is the size of your Christmas tree.

If you have an artificial one you already know how tall and wide your tree is. If you buy a real Christmas tree each year try to consider approximately what size you may be buying.

There is some leeway on what size Christmas tree topper you should buy for your tree but it’s not a good idea to go too large or too small.

You don’t want a small 6 inch topper on a large 9 foot tree. It just won’t look right.

On the other hand you also don’t want a large 16 inch topper on a small 4 foot tree.

You also need to keep in mind how tall your tree is and if there will be enough clearance between the top of the tree and your ceiling for the topper.

Here is a  simple tree topper sizing guide that I came up with:

  • Tabletop or miniature trees under 4 feet tall – look for a mini topper or one that is 4 inches tall or less
  • 4 ft to 5.5 ft tree – stick with a topper that is 6 inches or less
  • 6 ft to 7 ft tree – this is considered an average size tree which does give you a lot more choices. Look for a topper that is at least 6 inches tall but probably not more than 10 inches.
  • 7.5 ft to 9 ft tree – if you have the ceiling room for a tree this large you can go with a topper that is at least 8 inches tall with no really maximum height.

Again, this is just a very simple size guide and you do need to take into consideration your ceiling height and preferrred look of the tree.

Pick A Tree Topper To Fit Your Decorating Theme Or Style

Just because a type of tree topper is popular right now doesn’t mean you have to pick that for your tree.

Choose something that appeals to your decorating style or the theme of your tree.

Consider the color of the topper.

Consider the design of the topper.

Consider the shape of the topper.

If you are going with a certain look for your tree, choose a topper that finishes the tree rather than something that will look out of place with the design.

For example you wouldn’t want a super modern and trendy topper if you have a traditional or vintage style Christmas tree.

Remember that decorating your Christmas tree should be a fun activity to get ready for the holidays. Don’t be afraid to choose something that you love even if it isn’t “perfect” for other people.

Hopefully you can use one of these best Christmas tree toppers here to make your Christmas tree shine bright this year and fall in love with decorating a Christmas tree once again.
