Holy Mother Of God. As if 2020 is a year that anyone really wants to memorialize for eternity, a company calling itself Dot Com Product has created a Covid-19 themed ornament with that you can personalize and add to your Holiday Tree. Unreal. According to the description (unedited by me): “Each ornament is complemented with 2020 memorabilia including adorable Santa Hat Persons Wearing Masks, Hand Sanitizer, Toilet Paper, and the Year 2020” (with a Covid Germ representing the First Zero). Kill me.
You can order these crazy things with up to seven individual masked-heads (depending on how many people in your family survived the year, I suppose), and you can also add a pet. You have to personalize the ornaments yourself though (a black sharpie is recommended). If this looks like the bad taste / white elephant gift you need to own, you can read more about them, and place an order, at This Link.
Like it or not, it’s time to start picking up Holiday decorations for your home. If you have a Flying Tiger store in your town, get over there now, because they are stocked wall-to-wall with amazing stuff for the holidays, including a selection cool glass ornaments for your tree. Check out this Pink Dinosaur, which I saw while I was shopping there recently.
I’m pretty sure it is meant be a Stegosaurus, and the price is only $3!
Head over there and pick one (or more) up now, before they are all extinct!
If you happen to be a person who does the Tree Thing at the Holidays, it’s time to get that shit in order. I was in the Urban Outfitters on Fifth Avenue near 44th Street the other day and they had all kinds of fun ornaments to make a festive tree, such as this Pink Cupcake ornament, which you can see is quite sparkly. I like it.
Here are a bunch of them all hanging out together. “Ornament des Fêtes” translates to “Holiday Ornament”!
These Pink Cupcake Ornaments sell for $8.00 each! I am sure that most Urban Outfitters have them in stock!
