Thirteen Oddest, Funniest And Strangest Holiday Ornaments
Deck the halls with …. What in the world is that? Sometimes we wonder what has gotten into some people. First, the Ugly Christmas Sweater trend, the Turducken, and Christmas music piped into stores before Halloween. Now it seems all rules are forgotten and the Christmas decorating train has run off the rails.
Here's 13 of the oddest, funniest and strangest Christmas Tree Ornaments to add fun to your tree:
Holiday Tampon Ornament
Presented by Etsy creator crankyamoeba, the Holiday Tampon has many odd and interesting ornament friends on Etsy. There is Used Panty Liner ornament, Elf Poop Ornament and more to decorate your very weird tree.
Naked Santa and Mrs. Claus Ornament
Shades of Gray Ornament
The hottest books and soon-to-be movie has inspired Sewhard to create and sell an entire line of alternative-lifestyle gingerbread people on her Etsy shop. Rest assured, our leather-bedecked friend has partners of all genders and persuasions available to join him – but their outfits are too risqué to post!
This author spotted these ornaments several years ago in a beachside shop in St. Augustine, FL. Truly; the photos do not do them justice. Amazon sources the entire lineup of absolutely fabulous mermen so you can bedeck your holiday tree with all the joy and sparkle of the season. (There is also a collection of sexy mermaids as well.)
We don’t think this image of Santa quite portrays the jolly, child-friendly old elf we believe sneaks into our living rooms every Christmas. This one seems more like the pervy old guy in a raincoat that lurks too close to the elementary school.
Hipster Mustache Ornaments
It’s a sign of the times. The hipster mustache is nearly ubiquitous in modern decoration. Why not on the tree?
No Christmas tree would be complete without a thorough baconing. Neatorama, home of many wonderful things, brings us this shiny mmmmm bacon ornament just in time. (Amazon also carries this here.)
Gingerbread Zombie Baby Ornament
Neatoshop also features a full line of zombie ornaments for your tree. Zombie Baby, shown here, joins Zombie Kitty, Zombie Santa and many more. You should have no trouble at all creating an undead tree to celebrate this joyous season.(Update: Amazon also carries this ornament along with a zombie cat and dog.)
We are not sure what theme would be appropriate to feature the Rubber Chicken Ornament, but Neatoshop has them ready regardless.
Grenades for Your Christmas Tree
Coolest Gadgets (no longer available)
Nothing conveys the joyous spirit of the season like a Douglas fir bedecked in silver grenades. Luckily, they come in sets of six.
A Christmas Story is probably one of the most iconic holiday movies of our time, eclipsed only by the unrated version of Bad Santa. Pay homage to A Christmas Story and the fabled BB gun gift with this classic “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out” ornament.
This is how I feel after driving by the mall any time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just…meh. Maybe I’ll decorate my entire tree with these this year. To go perfectly with this perfect T-shirt.
Assuming your pets don’t destroy your Christmas tree, we hope these wacky ornaments give you some inspiration to try your own silly holiday tradition. After all, Santa’s motto is “Ho! Ho! Ho!” and he is supposed to be a jolly old soul.
