This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

The holidays will be exceptionally different this year, with smaller gatherings and some people celebrating solo. However, if you plan on getting together with a group of friends or family this year, the Centers for Disease Control recommends wearing a mask to protect yourself and others from potentially spreading the coronavirus. That’s not to say you can’t be festive — we’ve found several holiday-themed masks to keep your spirits up.

Wearing a cloth face mask can reduce your exposure to infectious droplets through filtration, according to the latest studies from the CDC. The most effective masks include those that have multiple layers with higher thread counts.

On Thursday, the US reported nearly 200,000 new COVID-19 cases — a record high since the start of the pandemic. Even if no one in your group feels sick, it’s safest to wear a face mask, maintain social distancing and keep indoor areas well ventilated. People who show no COVID symptoms can still spread the virus. A face mask will act as a barrier, helping prevent some respiratory droplets from spreading from person to person. The coronavirus spreads through droplets of breath both large and extremely small and is known to be airborne.

Here are some masks that can show your cheer.
