December has officially begun and so has the season for "decking halls with boughs of jolly." Where some will suffice with lighting a cinnamon-scented handle next to a fresh poinsettia, others will probably go all in with elaborate outdoor lights and Rockefeller Center-level Christmas trees.
If you're the latter, we have an awesome suggestion for this year's holiday decor – 3D-printed tree toppers of inspiring badass American women.
Created by Women To Look Up To, a nonprofit organization dedicated to projects that further female equality, these tree toppers – or Christmas angels / fairies, whatever you may call it – give a fresh spin to the tradition of topping our holiday trees with ??? ornaments. According to its creators:
"Every Christmas we place a 'Topper' [...] made of no more than plastic and glitter on top of trees. For many, she has lost her meaning, which is why Women To Look Up To have created a range of modern female role models to place on top instead."
Choosing carefully from a long list of modern women leading politics, culture and business, WTLUT decided on three finalists – Serena Williams, Beyoncé, and – a woman who was voted for by the public – Hillary Clinton. Donning angelic wings, these figurines were 3D printed from the highest-grade plaster and are sold online for $108–$945 depending on the tree size.
People can also order custom tree toppers of anyone who inspired them in their personal lives. WTLUT write: "We can create your very own special someone Christmas Angel Tree Topper. The person needs to be available to visit our London studio for 3D scanning."
Those who've already got their tree toppers for Christmas 2017 can also choose from these angelic holiday cards featuring Hillary Clinton, Beyoncé, Serena Williams, Adele, Michelle Obama, and Angelina Jolie.
