A new month is upon us, so what better time to consider making some new additions to your portfolio.

But if you're not a fan of stock picking, don't worry. That's because exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are here to save the day.

ETFs allow you to buy large groups of shares through a single investment. But which ones could be worth considering in December?

Listed below are four high-quality options to consider buying:

BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF (ASX: NDQ)

If you want to invest in some of the biggest and best companies that the world has to offer, then the BetaShares NASDAQ 100 ETF could be the one. This hugely popular ASX ETF gives you access to the 100 largest non-financial shares on the famous NASDAQ index. This includes many of the big tech giants that are ever-present in our daily lives.

iShares S&P 500 ETF (ASX: IVV)

Another ASX ETF to consider is the iShares S&P 500 ETF. It could be a good alternative to the NASDAQ 100 ETF if you want a more balanced option. That's because as well as giving you access to the 100 shares in the above ETF, you also get a further 400 of the top listed companies on Wall Street. This means you'll be investing in a diverse group of shares, including countless household names, from a range of different sectors.

VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT)

If you're a fan of Warren Buffett and want to invest like he does, then the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF could be for you. It allows you to invest in the Oracle of Omaha's style by providing investors with access to a group of shares with fair valuations and wide moats. These are qualities that Buffett looks for when picking his investments.

Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF (ASX: VGS)

A final ASX ETF to consider is the Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares ETF. This ETF gives investors access to a massive ~1,500 of the world's largest listed companies with a single click of the button. As with the iShares S&P 500 ETF, this could make it a great option if you're looking to diversify your portfolio.
