Need ideas first? Check out our Christmas tree decorating ideas.

1. Go for a minimalist take on the classic star

Keep your Christmas tree topper light and delicate in design as part of a minimalist decorating scheme. We love the Star Tree Topper with Lights by Sirius, available from Amara.

2. Pick a nature-inspired topper with berries

If you prefer your tree topper to look like a natural extension of your tree, pick one that's decorated with fir branches and/or berries, like this very pretty Berry Star Tree Topper from Dunelm.

3. Go glam with a sequinned star topper 

If subtle isn't your thing, go all out on colour and sparkle with the Ombre Sequin Star Tree Topper by M&Co (the perfect match for kitsch tree decorations, if you ask us).

4. Complete a frosted decorating scheme with a white star

Match your tree topper to the rest of your tree decorating scheme for an elegant finished look. We love the way the Iridescent White Star Christmas Tree Topper from The Contemporary Home completes this pearlescent decorating scheme.

6. Pick a 3D Christmas tree topper design

Add a bit of interest to the classic star topper with a three-dimensional design. The Tangle Star Christmas Tree Top by Stelton is very sophisticated and made from brass-brushed stainless steel. Available at Black by Design. The perfect match for a Scandi Christmas decorating scheme, we think.

7. Create atmospheric effects with an LED star topper

To complete a dreamy and atmospheric tree decorating scheme that will look especially stunning at night, pick an LED-lit tree topper. We love the Colour Changing LED Star Tree Topper from B&Q.

8. Go crazy with a feather-tailed bird topper

If you're going for a kitsch Christmas tree decorating scheme this year, then anything goes in terms of your tree topper. How about this delightfully OTT Peacock Tree Topper from TK Maxx? It's more than a little Copacabana, and we love it.

Can't get enough of Scandi Christmas? Top if all off (see what we did?) with the Nordic Angel Tree Topper from The Contemporary Home and hope that Christmas will be as peaceful and cosy as your tree.

10. Give Santa a nod with a knitted Santa hat topper

Santa's hat and the top of the Christmas tree are a marriage made in heaven. Our favourite is the very festive Santa Hat Christmas Topper by Three Little Loops, available from Etsy.
