Retailers (and some incredibly creative Etsy sellers) are now offering a slew of Christmas tree ornaments that would have seemed utterly bizarre in any year before 2020.
From mini rolls of toilet paper to bottles of hand sanitizer to figurines of Santa Claus wearing surgical masks, FEMAIL has rounded up some of the most 2020-appropriate pandemic-themed ornaments on the market.

Several iconic moments and events have stood out this year, from the presidential election to Tiger King mania — but nothing has defined the lives of people worldwide more than the COVID-19 pandemic.
And for those who like to add ornaments to their Christmas trees that sum up the year, it’s hard to argue that anything makes more sense than a decoration that references coronavirus.
Masks are certainly a popular theme this year. Etsy seller QueenBeaShop has designed a variety of fabric face mask ornaments from $12.99 to $13.99, while OrnamentShop.com has $16.99 blue surgical masks that can be customized and monogramed.
Also customizable are the shop’s family figurines, which feature individuals, families, and pets wearing face masks.
Of course, no home would be safe without hand sanitizer — for the tree (Left: OrnamentShop, $15.99, OrnamentShop.com; right: Old World Christmas, $19.99, oldworldchristmas.com)

Santa has also gotten the mask treatment this Christmas. Several retailers are selling Santa ornaments with face masks, with one $9.94 design by Follure Clothing showing Santa with a bag full of sanitizer, toilet paper, and cleaning products instead of presents.
No 2020-themed roundup would be complete without toilet paper — even as some supermarkets operated without toilet paper for weeks.
