My favourite Christmas ornament is “Anne” from Anne of Green Gables, given to me by my kindred spirit, Trudy! She is such a wonderful Godly friend. I am so blessed to call her friend.
In the past years it has always been the ones my kids make at school with their sweet little faces in them. And although those still are at the top of my list, my mom just passed away this fall so this year when hanging ornaments, I was especially thankful to have all the ornaments she had given me as a child and to my children each year.
Any of the ornaments my nieces and nephews made me over the years!
Can’t say I have a favorite, but I enjoy finding unique ornaments from whatever country we are currently residing in that year!
I like my two “baby’s first Christmas” ornaments. They are so special because they remind me of what a miracle my babies are, and what an even more awesome miracle Jesus has done for us!
A few years ago all my Christmas storage bins were stolen and I lost all my favorite handmade and hand me down ornaments and special gifted ornaments. Since then I cherish every ornament given to me by family and friends. I can’t choose just one favorite as they all remind me of their love and generosity. I also adore the ornaments my kids have made the last couple years.
my favorites are all the ornaments our kids have made… there’s a little swirly yarn one, I have no idea what it’s supposed to be, but it makes me smile every year.
Growing up my favorite ornament was a Santa one. It was a red glass ornament with a face painted on it and a sparkly hat. Now I love the ones my kids have given over the years- little fingerprint snowmen on ornaments or homemade ones with pictures of them- always brings me treasured memories as we trim the tree!
One from my children that says “We love Mommy” on it :)
All of my olive wood ornaments depicting the nativity from the Holy Land.
My favorite is my oldest child’s first Christmas ornament as it was the first year for me as a mom! :)
I love putting the glitter in the clear ornaments (with glue) and it sticks and shines!
My favorite ornaments are ones with my kids pictures(photos) on them. Also, and angel a teacher gave me when I was little. thx
My favorite ornament was one of the first given to me. Simple and classic. A red pipecleaner threaded wiith white lace, shapedinto a heart with a tiny red bow….
My favorite ornaments are the brass ones the family of one of my former students gave me and the new ones I embroidered on my new sewing machine this year.
I have several military inspired or patriotic ornaments but my favorite is an Army helmet. They remind me of when I bought them. My husband was in Iraq and bought ALL patriotic and Army ornaments and we had a very special tree that year to honor him.
A girl sitting under a hair dryer with Santa peeking from the back. It was given to me when I was a hairdresser 30 years ago from a downs syndrome girl whose hair I did. 30 years later, I am working in special education and think of her often!
Favorite ornament is a hideous black and orange painted mouse that one of us kids did a very long time ago… just reminds me that we were kids once, too.
I like the ornaments that my children made when they were small, with their pictures on them and cute drawings. It’s fun to reminisce.
Mine is two bears holding a string with 3 little bears. Which ironically was given as a gag gift at my bridal shower 21 years ago. But fits our family of 5 just perfectly. Who knew!
Three years ago, we moved from our first home together to a home in the country. It had been our desire since our wedding to live in the country, and this was nothing short of God-ordained all along! His timing, not ours. A dear friend gave me a beautiful, ceramic ornament that year that says Our New Home. For me, it is a reminder of God’s love and care and that He does want to give us the desire of our hearts!
A cinnamon dough bear that my son made me last year.
It’s hard to choose a favorite! Anything the kids make is precious to me. I also have a sweet ornament that celebrates the short life of our son we lost last year. Also, just this year, my grandma let my kids pick out an ornament from her tree., which is the one I gathered send every Christmas… Seeing those brings sweet tears to my eyes!
My absolute favorite ornament is my daughter’s “Baby’s First Christmas” ornament that I picked out for her. It’s silver pewter in the shape of a teddy bear with blocks that number the year (2011) and a big red heart. :)
Mine are ALL of the ones my kids have ever made, I have 4, sons ages 22,16, twin daughters that turn 12 in Jan. & the things they put their touch points on, mean more to me than a 20 K ring could ever!!!!
