10 Best COVID-themed Christmas Ornaments of 2021

COVID Christmas decor

The ten best 2021 Christmas ornaments commemorate our second year of COVID – and we thought we were done with this mess already!

Ahh, Calendar Year 2021; you are a year of surprises. Of changes, challenges, tragedies, travesties. Sometimes I wonder if once this year is over and gone, we will even want to remember it.

2021 is quite possibly a year many of us would like to forget – or maybe you’re like me, and don’t even feel sure where this year went!

Please note that these ornaments are meant to be humorous!

On the other hand, I and many others do like to add an annual ornament to the Christmas tree – something that represents or summarizes the year in some way. For those of us who follow this tradition, I’ve collected ten of the best 2021COVID-commemorative Christmas ornaments.

If you are a collector, I’m sure you’ll find an ornament here that speaks to you and your experience of the year.

Not a fan of ornament collections? Perhaps you can use one of these as a hostess, neighbor, or even a white elephant gift. Secret Santas and gag gifts, too!

Ten Christmas Ornaments to Commemorate the Year 2021

COVID Santa with Vaccine

Santa’s bringing you a big…vaccine!

A vaccine for you…and one for you…and one for you! In fact, he’s got a sackful!

Also note he’s wearing his mask to keep everyone safe during deliveries!

Events of the Year 2021

Back to school…social distancing…the delta variant…binge watching…and vaccinations…

All these things have taken on new meanings in the past 12 months. This one colorful ornament combines all the events and occurrences into one perfect ornament.

The One When We Were Vaccinated

Calling all Friends fans…this is the one you want!


Christmas 2021 – the one when we were v*a*c*c*i*n*a*t*e*d

If you loved Friends (who didn’t!), you’ll love this ornament.

Wood-Look 2021 Year of Vaccination

2021 Year of Vaccination

Sure, it looks like a wooden ornament, but it’s actually made of shiny acrylic for greater durability. Perfect for the tree with a more rustic or farmhouse style.

Vaccine Canister

It’s not just COVID – 2021 was the year of the vaccine, too!

Commemorate moving forward with this cute little vial (it’s empty – the vaccine is not included!)

Plow & Hearth

Year of the Healthcare Workers

Let’s hear it for all of the incredible healthcare workers committed to caring for their patients despite overwhelming odds.

Seven syringes form a pretty snowflake one a deep blue background.

I Got Mine!

Here’s a chance to personalize an ornament, for that special someone who received their vaccines.

A big red heart holds a syringe, and there’s even a bandaid for the injection site!

Quarantined COVID Virus

This virus is under quarantine!

Bright green (to match the colors of the season) and under glass (to keep him – and you safe!)

Coronavirus Cutie

You’ve got to admit this little guy looks pretty cute in bright red, with his wide eyes and blue mask!

But what havoc he has wreaked this last two years.

Masked Gingerbread Man

Festive and filled with Christmas charm…yet this traditional gingerbread man looks a bit different from those from previous years.

He’s staying safe with that mask!

    1. Oops, Laurel, I am so sorry about having the wrong link! I’ve corrected the link in the post (tried to put it in this message, but it wouldn’t link)

      Thanks for letting me know it was incorrect!

  1. This list is awful! I’m looking for a Christmas ornament, not a reminder of the year that Americans accepted tyranny from the government.

    1. I’m sorry this list isn’t what you were looking for – it is meant to be a representation of this year, and a bit tongue in cheek. Thank you for taking the time to respond anyway, and I hope you find what you are looking for!
