The holiday season is back, after nine months of staying at home, binge-watching favorite TV shows and streaming new movies. And what better way to celebrate this Christmas than with your favorite pop culture ornaments?
To brighten up your holidays, here’s Variety’s collection of holiday cheer we discovered across the internet (that will still make its way to your door before Christmas), where you can find miniature versions of your favorite onscreen characters.
Bong Joon Ho Ornament
How could anyone forget “Parasite’s” historic Academy win? This acrylic ornament of director Bong Joon Ho, joined by his two shining Oscar trophies, will remind you of one of the entertainment industry’s greatest highlights of 2020. Technically this is a keychain, but with a little finesse it can be an annual reminder of the win.
Picard ‘Make It Snow’ Ornament
Set a course for holiday cheer this Christmas with everyone’s favorite “Star Trek” captain (no, that title is not up for debate). One thing worth celebrating this year was the return of Picard played by Sir Patrick Stewart. Created by CastleMcQuade, this is just one example of several astounding pop culture Christmas decorations.
‘Schitt’s Creek’ Ornament
While gathering around for your celestial holiday fête why not celebrate with television’s Moira Rose? This adorable “Schitt’s Creek” ornament reminds us all that there plenty of things to celebrate, such as Catherine O’Hara’s perfect pronunciation of the word bébé. And if you’re looking for more, may we suggest this “Best Wishes, Warmest Regards” holiday hanging? View our best gifts for “Schitt’s Creek” fanatics guide here.
‘The Mandalorian’ Ornament
Baby Yoda is the cutest thing to shake up the “Star Wars” toy aisle, it’s all about Baby Yoda (and yes that is the name we’re sticking with). Naturally the holiday offerings for BY-adjacent decorations is staggering. We particularly liked this simplistic ornament (move Baby Yoda’s arms and legs by yanking on the space frog). However, there are so many additional options like Baby Yoda in his floating pram, Baby Yoda mid-force stance and even super cute cartoony versions of Baby Yoda ornaments. The Baby Yoda options are limitless, and if you want more we have a whole “Star Wars” gift guide here.
This year also found a permanent home for the 45-year-old prop shark Bruce. After undergoing a seven-month restoration, this 1,208 pound, 25-foot-long shark from Steven Spielberg’s classic movie “Jaws” will live on at the at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles.
