While most designers would agree that a topper isn't necessary to "top" off your Christmas tree, I think my tree looks incomplete without one. Even a simple, gold star can round out my tree decor in a way that nothing else can. Maybe it's the nostalgia, too — stepping on a ladder or being held up by Mom or Dad as a little kid to add that final touch before hitting the lights to check out the sparkling display.

No matter how you choose to top your tree, we have something for every holiday decor style, budget and fandom, from rustic farmhouse to Harry Potter. Shop our top picks from West Elm, Anthropologie and more in the links below — and just in time for holiday decorating, too.
