When purchasing any new toy for your dog, make sure it's the appropriate size for your dog—toys that are too small can be a potential choking hazard and should be avoided. Always supervise your dog when they are playing with toys (festive or not). Discard the toy if your dog chews off small pieces that they might try to ingest.
