8. DON’T. BLINK.
This one is meant for the Doctor Who fans out there. The Weeping Angels are monsters that are almost as iconic as the famous Daleks. As the aliens take the form of stone statues when they’re being looked at, this tree topper will be sure to send a small shiver down any Whovian’s back when he looks at it. And always remember: DON’T. BLINK.

I may not speak for everyone, but the Rankin Bass stop-motion Christmas specials were always a tradition when I was younger, as they were for many other people. Odds are, using this unique Christmas tree topper, you’ll have a few guests who smile and laugh as they recognize Bumble having some fun atop the tree. Just make sure he sees a good dentist beforehand.
10. WHOOPS. WRONG HOLIDAY.
Really, how could I talk about unique Christmas tree toppers and not include the Pumpkin King? If anyone has a unique way to celebrate Christmas, it’s him. ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ is an iconic film during both Halloween and Christmas. And even if you haven’t seen it, you’ve certainly seen all the merchandise and memorabilia. Have this topper, and everyone will know who it is. It’s also a great excuse to watch a fantastic movie.
11. CHRISTMAS ON THE HIGH SEAS
Would you believe this Flying Dutchman tree topper was hand-crafted? That’s right. If a life raft won’t do it for you, this ship, which can easily be attached to the tree, will certainly give a nautical feel to the festive season. This item is available for $40 from Wayfair, but it won’t be for long.
12. PRETTY SURE HE’S SUPPOSED TO GO DOWN THE CHIMNEY
Looks like Santa had a rough night. A comedic spin on the perception of Santa going down the chimney, this unique Christmas tree topper will definitely get a laugh out of any young one’s who see it. This item is available for $13 from craftoulet.
13. IT’S FROSTY’S TURN NOW
Frosty the Snowman is almost as popular as Santa Claus himself. Having him as a tree topper may not be as unique as having a Jedi master or an alien statue, but he’s one that isn’t seen often at the top of a Christmas Tree, and I think that it’s high time that changed.
14. THE OLD ONES ENJOY CHRISTMAS TOO, I GUESS.
Even fans of H. P. Lovecraft enjoy the holidays. Having Cthulhu stand watch over your tree may be an unconventional choice for a tree topper, but it’s sure to be one that everyone will remember. If they don’t ask why you have a green octopus on your tree instead.
15. THE 8TH WONDER OF THE WORLD
This is more of a DIY tree topper, but this one was just so incredible, I had to include it. Santa in an airplane dogfight with King Kong…in a Santa hat. Find a figure of a gorilla, Santa in an airplane, some wire, a few ties to make sure King Kong stays upright, and you’re good to go. This is one of the best unique Christmas tree toppers!
