20 Christmas Ornaments for People Who Love Food
Deck the halls with boughs of holly... or avocado and Brussels sprouts! Spread holiday cheer with some food-inspired Christmas ornaments.
Santa’s Extra Stout
The holidays are all about eating, drinking and being merry, so who could pass up a bottle of Santa’s stout ($15)? It adds a touch of festive cheer and might get a chuckle from friends, too.
We can’t back it up with science (yet), but we’re pretty sure a good chunk of cheese can make you a happier, calmer and all-around better person. Don’t settle on one slice for your Christmas tree when you can enjoy a stack of four wheels ($25).
Mac and Cheese
If you like your cheese melted over spirals or shells, add this macaroni and cheese ornament ($19) to your cart ASAP. No one can resist a heaping plate of mac and cheese, so let’s get ornaments on the tree and then make one of our mouth-watering mac recipes.
Of course, no taco is complete without a side of creamy, delicious guacamole. You can’t add a bowl of homemade guac to your Christmas tree, but you can buy this glass-blown avocado ornament ($8). Yum!
I’m constantly craving a gigantic plate full of maki rolls, sashimi and sushi pieces. But since I can’t eat sushi all day every day, I’ll be happy to settle for a trio of gorgeous sushi ornaments ($13).
Sure, barbecue is typically reserved for the summer, but the classic American pastime still has a spot on your Christmas tree. This barbecue grill ornament ($12) even has li’l steaks, corn on the cob and burgers!
Doesn’t matter if it’s pepperoni, sausage and mushroom or extra cheese. You can never have too much pizza. (Especially when the crust is homemade.) That’s precisely why we think this supreme slice ($7) is a must for your Christmas tree.
We love cooking, but sometimes there’s nothing we love more than curling up with some delectable take-out. Just one look at this Chinese food container ornament ($17) and we’re already daydreaming about lo mein and sesame chicken.
Embrace your inner Francophile with a baguette ornament ($16). Consider it guilt-free carb-loading.
As far as we’re concerned, there’s nothing a greasy cheeseburger can’t solve—including how to decorate your Christmas tree. This burger ornament ($10) is topped with lettuce, pickles, tomato and extra cheese.
Oysters on the Half Shell
Oysters that are already shucked and have a pretty pearl inside? This oyster ornament ($17) is a Christmas miracle! To set up a romantic date night for you and your beau over the holidays, add eight aphrodisiacs to the menu.
Of course, no foodie ornament roundup is complete without a pickle. Though hiding a pickle ornament ($6) on your tree is an old German tradition—and can bring good fortune to whoever finds it—there’s no denying it’s also a great decoration for anyone who loves a good gherkin.
