I always enjoy looking at other people’s Christmas trees, especially the Christmas Tree Topper. You see, I have a thing for Christmas Tree Toppers. Stars are amazing and bows are so festive. For me, my tree topper must be an angel.

How to Find the Perfect Christmas Tree Topper

  • Measure the distance from the top of your tree to the ceiling. If you have really high ceilings, you can have any tree topper you want.
  • Match your personality style – What appeals to you? If you want a whimsical look, go with a top hat or a snowman. What about a Santa hat? You can find this cute snowman Christmas tree topper here!

My Favorite Christmas Tree Topper

Over 25 years ago, I found the perfect porcelain angel at my local Hallmark store. I fell instantly in love. At the time, my son, Jeremy, was only 2 years old. My husband held him way up high and helped him place the angel on top of our tree. After that, it became a tradition. Jeremy placed the angel on the tree every single year until he grew up and moved out.

Tree Topper that I've had for over 25 years

That old porcelain angel retired a few years ago because the base has practically disintegrated. Still, she has a place of honor on my buffet. And when I take her out every year, the memories rush back to those Christmases long, long ago.

I now have another angel that graces the top of my Christmas tree. It’s a gift from my oldest daughter and once upon a time, it was an angel that lit up. Eventually, the lights stopped working and I couldn’t fix it. I removed the insides and it left a cone shape and it became my tree topper. Most people would never guess that its original purpose was not a Christmas tree topper.

Tree Topper that Tops my Tree

Your tree & angel our beautiful. I love teddy bears and my mom gave me a teddy bear angel wearing a Santa like coat. I love it because it’s a combination of all the things Christmas is about.

Your tree is so beautiful. I love the story of your Christmas angels. What special memories.

Those Christmas memories are the best! For our family tree, I have an angel that I purchased the year Gloria was born. She’s not fancy, but she still lights up. After 29 years, she’s still looking good. I mentioned replacing her a few years ago, and Gloria quickly let me know that she wouldn’t be happy about it! So, she will continue to have the position of honor on our tree until she’s falling apart.

We have used a Santa tree topper for many years. He’s gotten really hard to keep in the tree and the girls decided he needs to be retired… now we’re on the hunt for a new topper!
