Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like air mattresses), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. Today, the best Christmas tree toppers on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.) We’ve covered the best Christmas lights, too. Don’t miss all of the Strategist’s holiday gift coverage right here, too.

Best traditional star Christmas tree topper

Kurt Adler 8-Inch Gold Glittered 5 Point Star Treetop

“Sweet Jesus … I finally found a tree topper, after six years, that was a star that didn’t topple over from being too heavy. This star is gorgeous. I have it on a 7.5-foot artificial tree, and it looks great. My tree tapers to the top like most fake ones do. It has a wide-enough coil base so that you can double up or triple up the spire of the tree if needed. It does not look dark on my tree because it is glittery, and I have white lights. For the price … you can’t go wrong. I would even use it for an Xmas decoration if it didn’t fit my tree.”
