This Hogwarts Tree Topper Will Make This Christmas Even More Magical
Traditionalists tend to choose a fairy or a star to round off their Christmas tree, but if you're ready to level up the tree decoration game this year, let us direct you to one that comes in the form of Hogwarts castle from Harry Potter.
Your tree is going to look even more enchanting with this nod to the wizarding world, but it is no regular tree ornament.
Created by Hallmark, this fabulous topper illuminates when connected to power and then when you press a remote control button, a fun light and sound show will bring your room alive.
The featured music, we'll add, won't be your standard Christmas songs, no, no, instead you'll hear Hedwig's Theme chimed throughout your living room. What else?
This is really going to bring out the magic of Christmas.
And the topper isn't the only Harry Potter ornament to be released by Hallmark this season. It's actually part of a wider collection including ornaments of the franchise's lead characters, Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley.
Even better, they sync up with the Hogwarts castle, and in doing so, unlock special light and sound performances you can't get with just one piece of the collection.
The only drawback of the Hogwarts tree topper (and it's quite a big one) is the price. To ship it to the UK it'll set you back $199.99 (£155.61). Yikes, but if you're a big enough HP fan...
If you can swish and flick your wand and produce money from the end of it, you may be able to snap it up, but for most of us, that sort of cash is needed for all the presents we need to buy during the holiday season.
If you're keen to treat your tree to a unique topper at a slice of that price however, we have it covered. There are so many fun alternatives available.
Disney fans rejoice because you can choose to have Belle from Beauty and the Beast or Princess Tiana at the crown of your tree - which kids are bound to love too.
The toppers are from Possible Dreams and will cost £52.95 apiece, which you can shop here at Amazon.
But, again, that's pretty expensive for a single decoration. However, this snowman tree topper is more budget-friendly.
This chap will appear as though he's hugging your festive fir and we think he's super cute. You can't go wrong with it at just £11.99 from TOYMYTOY at Amazon here either.
Alternatively, bring your generation Z or millennial A-game with this very on-trend copper wire topper that says 'yay', also available in white, black, silver and gold.
It is £25 from seller The Letter Loft on Not On The High Street here, but if you'd prefer to personalise the word, you can pay an extra tenner to do so.
Personally, we love how chic it is, but if you're after something more playful, perhaps a reindeer option from Paperchase will be more up your street.
He's a fun alternative complete with festive lights caught in his antlers, plus he's only £5. Buy him here.
But our personal favourite has got to be this incredible disco ball topper. Just look at it shimmer.
Sadly, it doesn't spin like a disco ball, but who else is going to top their tree with this incredible number? You can get this Cody and Co. piece here from Trouva for £30.
With any of our picks, your tree will look the belle of the ball this upcoming festive season.
