Ahh, Calendar Year 2020; 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. 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 2020 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.
Ten Christmas Ornaments to Commemorate the Year 2020
An engraved wooden ornament, perfect for your farmhouse decor.
This typography-style Christmas ornament summarizes all that we have shared this year by experiencing a global pandemic. From “social distancing” to “front line heroes”, this 3.75″ engraved wooden ornament documents all the most common catch-phrases we learned in 2020.
This is a traditional ball ornament, suitable for any style decor. It’s handmade using high quality permanent adhesive vinyl and glitter that shimmers beautifully in the lights. Ornaments can be made in a variety of colors, and read “Christmas in lockdown 2020”.
I’ve got a bunch of gingerbread men that I put up on my tree every year, but none quite like this cutie! He’s doing his part to keep his friends and family safe by wearing a gingerbread-man sized mask! Adorable, don’t you think
If you are a fan of personalized ornaments, you’ll want to check this one out. Shown are four little Santas in masks, but this ornament is offered in solo – 8 Santas, and in different ethnicities as well. So it’s easy to customize the way you want it. You can also have family names or a unique message written on the toilet paper.
Did you notice that the red 0 looks like a little COVID virus?
Humorous 2020 Christmas Ornament featuring the Grinch
Aw, Grinch, was this year really that bad that it “stink, stank, stunk”? Grinch fans will love this depiction of the cantankerous anti-hero , complete with mask. A great commemorative for families with kids, and Grinch fans as well.
This unfinished birch wood ornament is the perfect way to remember this crazy year! It can be hung on your tree as-is (natural wood) to give a rustic farmhouse feel, or can be painted by you or your kids.
An ornament for any decor that uses traditional red and white colors for Christmas. This cute little mask has festive red and green polka dots. It is embroidered with the date 2020, so we never forget the year of the Coronavirus (as if we ever could!)
A simple ornament with a sincere, lasting message. 2020 – the year we stayed home.
This is my personal favorite of the list. It’s a clear yet subtle reminder that the virus didn’t just impact a small group of us where we live. Rather, the impact was worldwide, and our healing must be worldwide as well. This is a traditional ball ornament, hand painted on a glass globe (hang it high if children will be around!)
This raw steel ornament is hand polished to remove any sharp edges, and due to the material no two are exactly alike. Made in Michigan, and guaranteed to be unlike any other ornament on your tree!
