    Create Memories Through Personalized Ornaments This Christmas

    Create Memories Through Personalized Ornaments This Christmas

    Some people are absolute Christmas decorating fanatics.  They decorate every nook of the house with tinsel and garland.  Others prefer a nice, simple approach to Christmas.  Whatever your style, the decorations that are always the favorites are the ones that hold the most memories.  Personalized Ornaments are a great way to commemorate a year and create a snapshot in time. Here are some suggestions.

    Family Memory Ornaments are a must have on your tree.  Choose an ornament that represents the entire family, or everyone can get their own.  Using a sharpie write a memory from that year on the back of the ornament.  As you decorate each year, the memories written on these ornaments will fill you with love and laughter.

    A picture is a captured memory!  Create your own custom picture ornament by uploading your own photo.

    Do you have an athlete in the house? Personalize the sports ornament with his name and year.  Take a sharpie and have him write his jersey number and name on the back of the ornament.  You now have something that represents his interests that year and his handwriting.

    What about a ballerina?  Ask for her autograph on the back of the ornament to remember just how little she was that year.

    Fur Babies must be represented as well.  Show your love for your pets on your tree.

    Did you move into a new house this year or maybe you know someone who has?  Whether you are gifting it or getting it for yourself, years from now this ornament can remind you of the journey you have been on.

    Don't forget to give a memory as well.  Ornaments make perfect teacher gifts. Have you child write a special message to the their teacher on the back and years from now the teacher will remember your precious little one!
