One of my greatest treasures are my tubs of Christmas ornaments. My oldest daughter is 24, and I have an ornament from the Christmas before she was born. You can see behind this bunny a lot of my Hallmark ornaments!
In the past, my reviews have been of ornaments I've given to my kids. This year, since I already knew which ornaments I was going to give my kids, I decided to give Fred's parents a photo ornament. They love that kind of personal gift.
But, before I get to that, can I show you some of the ornaments I've gotten my kids over the years? When they were first born, I got them the yearly ornaments. I'm missing two, and hope to find them one day. Do you know how terrible it is to not have full sets? You can also see how they changed over the years. What I just noticed as I'm writing this is, the first two sets (for my girls) are all bears, and the next two sets (for my boys) are dogs.
From these sets I went on to different ones. My oldest daughter got quite a few of the Barbie ones. After a while I decided to get them something that went along with their past year or something they were into.
So, no more puppies and bears. I started getting sports ornaments, Marvel, NFL, hobbies, etc. Oh so many to choose from. And that's where I'm still at with my kids. I still get my oldest kids ornaments, and if possible stick them in their stockings.
This year has been a bit harder to pick something for my girls. My oldest loves all kinds of things, but the one I've settled on is the Disney Inside Out "Joy" ornament. My second daughter spent a year overseas on a mission trip & the summer as a head camp counselor. lol I know she used to love sock monkeys, so that will be perfect for her. My boys dog eared my Hallmark catalog so I could choose one from the ones they picked.
Now I'm excited to show you the one we ordered for Fred's parents, and it's the same one you'll be able to get as well! This photo is a couple years old, so we'll need to update it this year with a new one, but how precious is it?
If you love that, you'll love all of the other personalized ornaments as well!
Now you have the opportunity win an ornament like the one I got for my in-laws. You have to know, you may not be able to receive it before Christmas if you're going to be giving it as a gift. Once a winner is chosen, I'll send a code for the winner to order one!
