6. Jennifer’s pick: Customer service ninja Jennifer chose this Tiny Tree Ornament 2012 (also by Anda Corrie), but we’re not sure if she realizes they’re not earrings.

7. Stephen’s pick: Krampus Ornament. The Krampus, according to Bavarian folklore, is Santa’s evil doppelgänger, a creature sent to punish bad children during the Christmas season. Stephen hangs it on his tree in the vain hope that it will motivate his children to stop fighting constantly during the holidays.
