Looking for Unique Glass Christmas Ornaments? Here Are Some!
Let’s face it – we love unique Christmas ornaments – especially the ones that are hand blown glass. Extra points if they yours are handmade! That said, there are some awesome glass Christmas tree ornaments on the market to liven up your decor. Some are more quirky or funny than others – but all of these glass ornaments are sure to be mentioned at your holiday party.
We love Christmas decor – but our flat is a little small to have a massive tree. Therefore, we don’t have a ton of room for big tree ornaments! However, we have a smaller festive set-up that we’ll photograph and show you soon!
Below, we list off 8 of the most unique Christmas ornaments made of glass that we could find. You might even opt for personalized glass Christmas ornaments or an ornaments set to gift to someone. This would be a great idea – they go right along with great Christmas onesies for adults or hilarious Christmas sweaters for dogs!
Things to Consider: Buying Unique Glass Christmas Ornaments
Before you buy, here are a few points we’ll touch on throughout the post. These are just to get you thinking about what to consider for your tree and overall decor this Christmas!
Style. When buying ornaments to go on your tree (or for other places to hang in the house) then you will definitely want to think about the style you are going for this season. Color is a big element of this. If you have a color scheme that you stick to, then buy ornaments that match or compliment accordingly.
Another element of style is the design of the ornament. There are very playful looking ornaments and there are very elegant looking glass ornaments. The design is up to you to choose – and then run with it!
Quality/Material. Obviously for this post the main material of the desired ornaments is glass – but there are different qualities of glass and quality of makes. Some are hand-blown and meticulously crafted while others are blown and cast/filled with a metal.
Be sure to read the review if you are unsure which ornaments will look and last the longest to get decorative use year after year.
Price. Price kind of goes hand in hand with quality – as generally the more expensive the ornament, the higher quality. This isn’t always the case – but it’s definitely a guideline to consider!
Since this is your holiday decor, you can go as cheap or as expensive as you like. That’s the good thing about these ornaments below as they are pretty inexpensive – but you can buy pricier ones that fit your style!

Just something to think about!
If you have a “Game of Thrones” fan in the house, then buying a dragon ornament might be the best idea!
