Beyoncé gifted her closes friends with the perfect Christmas gift to encapsulate how awful 2020 was in a beautiful, witty way.

The singer's cousin Angie Beyince revealed on Instagram that the singer gave all her closes girls a 2020 necklace.

Upon closer inspection to the tall zero however, reveals that the zero simultaneously looks like someone giving the middle finger. A clever nod to how most of us fell amid this turbulent year.

Beyince posted a photo of the necklace and wrote, '@beyonce gifted all of her girls with this amazing custom 2020 necklace. '🖕2020 ' It’s a hand with middle finger and the year 2020 combined into one. When I opened it my eyes teared up because it is both Hilarious & Deeply Sentimental.

She continued by saying '2020 has had ups and downs but over all its been a really weird and tuff year. Hopefully 2021 is good to the world 🌎 🙏 #nye #beyonce'

Beyoncé gave quite a few gifts this year that made their way to Instagram.

Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry posted the singer's notes to the new moms to celebrate the births of their first children. While Minaj didn't post a full shot of Queen Bey's gift to her, Perry did, showing off the beautiful floral arrangement Beyoncé sent her on her Instagram Story.

In British Vogue's December issue, Beyoncé reflected on how 2020 changed her fundamentally as a person.

[I am] absolutely changed. It would be difficult to experience life in a pandemic and the current social unrest and not be changed. I have learnt that my voice is clearer when I am still. I truly cherish this time with my family, and my new goal is to slow down and shed stressful things from my life. I came into the music industry at 15 years old and grew up with the world watching, and I have put out projects non-stop. I released Lemonade during the Formation World Tour, gave birth to twins, performed at Coachella, directed Homecoming, went on another world tour with Jay, then Black Is King, all back to back. It’s been heavy and hectic. I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on building my legacy and representing my culture the best way I know how. Now, I’ve decided to give myself permission to focus on my joy.
