The neat thing about Christmas ornaments is that you can purchase a Christmas ornament that represents a special occasion in someone's life and give that ornament as a gift to someone. If you know someone who is getting married, why not purchase a Christmas ornament as a gift to the happy couple that says something like, "Our First Christmas" and the year of the marriage. You can personalize these ornaments with the name of the couple to make it even more unique. A Christmas gift such as this will really make the newlywed's first holiday season even more special. Christmas ornaments such as these will cost around $10 and are available at online Christmas stores and in certain Christmas retail stores during the holiday season.
You can also purchase Christmas ornaments that celebrate the birth of a new baby. Choose from a hand painted bear that will cost about $20 and has your baby's birth year hand painted on it, or choose a personalized ornament in the shape of a rattle with your baby's name on it that will cost you around $8. These Christmas ornaments are something you can give your child as an heirloom one day for their tree. In the meantime, you can put the ornament on your tree each year, remembering that first Christmas as you hang that ornament.
Ornaments for special occasions such as the birth of a baby or a wedding are truly wonderful gifts that keep on giving throughout the years!
